Tom Hurst Presents "Loud Jamz"
Tom Hurst is bringing back the Loud Jamz! With a custom-built house band that will use a variety of instrumentalists and vocalists with a broad range of featured guests, this will be a players jam without high tech assistance. Skilled musicians who know their craft, and aren’t afraid to put the creative pedal to the metal, will turn up the volume and the musicianship to challenge themselves and entertain what is sure to be a packed house. Drawing predominantly from a master repertoire of songs that cover all genres across the musical spectrum, the goal is to bring out the soul in the music and the player in a way that incites a riot of movement. Technologically, this will be no pedestrian ensemble of sound.
The format of the show will feature four distinct musical sections. Beginning at 8pm until 8:40, the house band will play roughly seven songs. From 8:50 to 9:30, an established group or artist will perform a six to seven song set. The house band will return from 9:40 to 10:30 to play another seven or eight songs, and from 10:20 to 11pm, the show will end with an open jam. With just two ten-minute intermissions, this is nearly three hours of an eclectic set list you won’t find anywhere else. The first show, set for August 3, will open with a three song jazz set by Belmont vocal professor, Stephanie Adlington. Following her, the house band will perform six songs ranging from British rock icon, Genesis, to a short-lived heavy metal band from San Francisco, T-Ride. Cosmifunkpop band, Flat Land, will play a 50-minute set, followed by the return of the house band for five songs that cover Big Wreck, Audioslave, Crash Kings, and Stereophonics. How the songs are interpreted will be in the hands of the players.
