ABOUT TBone Hamilton
Tom “TBone” Hamilton is a versatile musician who is comfortable with leading his own bands, or as sideman with many different national and international touring musicians. For over three decades TBone has honed his bass skills on both the electric and upright bass. The feel he has developed on the bass started in his youth and began to be recognized by the top Blues musicians of the Tampa Bay area. Serving up the low end to iconic blues groups such as: The Deacon Fuller Band, Rock Bottom and the Cutaways, and the Poulos Ramsey Band, TBone was an in-demand bassist. TBone recorded with Ronnie Earl on Rock Bottom’s Harmaniac CD. Also featured on the CD is Vidar Busk, the monster blues guitarist from Norway. Desiring to expand his playing and repertoire, TBone began to study and play Jazz. It was during this time frame that TBone led the “Swinging Johnsons”. As a bassist, vocalist, songwriter, and producer, the band recorded two CDs “Get A Life” and “Duck”. The band had a great run and eventually reconfigured to The Hamilton-Harris Project. TBone’s musical partner, Dan Harris, co-led this band and the partnership released a live Jazz Standards CD called “Live Matters”. After this time, TBone went to play in the duo and trio formats with notable guitarists and pianists.
Eventually, the “TBone Hamilton Band” was born. The band is the backbone to his larger band, “TBone Hamilton’s Big Easy Revue”. In addition to these bands, “TBone Hamilton & the Blues All Stars” is a band dedicated to the blues. “TBone Hamilton & the Blues All-Stars – A Tribute to Willie Dixon” was released in 2019 and is TBone’s 4th CD which features guests, Mitch Woods and TC Carr.
As a sideman, TBone backs up piano boogie woogie man, Mitch Woods, and the Braille Blues Daddy, Bryan Lee, as well as national touring Jazz and Blues Acts.
Not one to rest on his laurels, TBone is currently performing, producing music and is collaborating on new video music interviews and documentaries.
