Hamilton Loomis with special guest Chris Eger

May 17 @ 8:00 pm

Doors 7pm | Show 8pm

$20 Advanced / $25 Day of Show – Purchase tickets on Eventbrite here.

Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, Loomis is the son of musician parents who listened to blues, rock and soul. Music ran in his veins and, with instruments readily available around the house, he picked up drums, piano, guitar and harmonica, honing his multi-instrumental talent in addition to performing regularly as part of his family’s doo-wop group

A protégé of Bo Diddley, Loomis met the icon backstage at the age of 16 at Houston’s famed venue Rockefeller’s. Before the night was over, Loomis was onstage playing guitar with the legend. Diddley quickly became friend, mentor, collaborator and supporter, appearing on two of Loomis’ albums and presenting a cherished red guitar that he still plays.

Loomis and crew shine on stage proving his music is best experienced in person, where one can see and hear its intended splendor. Described by Blues Blast Magazine as “a non-stop turbo of power”, Loomis’ energetic, get-in-with–the-crowd antics are infectious. The swaying and clapping are just as he envisioned.

Very few musicians are said to be extraordinary examples of excellence in any one genre of music. Even fewer can be described as exceptional across multiple. When considering Chris Eger fits into the latter category as both a guitarist AND vocalist, it is no doubt an especially rare gift. Fronting his own band for close to a decade now, Chris has taken his game to a new level and a new town. When Nashville called, he answered, and this highly anticipated project was born. Eger and his longtime guitar-hero, and Nashville recording artist, Eric Heatherly, joined forces and have crafted an album that demands attention.  Rock and Blues, Country, Funk and Soul collide in this modern take on vintage roots music. These are not overproduced, synthesized tunes created by a computer. This is raw, powerful, handmade – in the USA!  The Chris Eger Band is: REAL. AMERICAN. MUSIC.
