TBone Hamilton and the Blues All-Stars are comprised of some of the best blues musicians. Bassist/Leader – Tom “TBone” Hamilton (TBone Hamilton Band, The Swinging Johnsons, Rock Bottom & the Cutaways) returns to the Firehouse Cultural Center with his Blues All Stars.
This music project was started in 2013.
TBone stated at that time:
“I have been in the music business for the past 25 years. Over this time span, I have met numerous great musicians, many of whom I call friends. As time was going by, I came to the realization that some of them were passing away, and I strongly felt that I had to capture the sound of these “local” cats while they were still here and “blowing” as good as ever. This was the genesis for the Blues All Stars.”
Joining the band as a Featured Artist will be the Braille Blues Daddy – Mr. Bryan Lee. A 2010 Grammy Nominee and 2011 BMA Recipient, Bryan has been playing the Blues consistently for over 50 years to fans all over the world. He is referred to by his peers as a “Living Legend”, “New Orleans Blues Institution” as well as your “Braille Blues Daddy”.
TBone has been a fan of Bryan Lee going as far back to his days when Bryan made his stand, performing 6 nights a week for over 14 years at the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans. TBone finally got to meet Bryan in person when opening for his band locally in the Tampa Bay area. Bryan also calls TBone to come play with his band Six String Therapy form time to time.
Greg Poulos and TBone have been friends since the Poulos Ramsey Band days when the Greg and Pat Ramsey asked TBone to join their band. Greg already had a great legacy that point playing guitar in the Freddy King band. In Sarasota Greg has led the band the Venturas for many years and is hired featured guitarist for artists like TC Carr, Damon Fowler, and The Toler Brothers.
Bryan and Greg are excited to play together for the first time. This promises to be one heck of a blues show.
