⇔BACK TO ARTISTS
Although they are both still in their early 20s, The Lomeo Brothers have been a staple on the Central New York Blues scene for over a decade. They became the youngest performers ever invited to a Woodstock Festival in 1999, when guitarist Adam was 12 and his singing and harmonica-playing brother Matthew only ten. During this period the brothers made their presence felt in such high profile settings as the Chenango Blues Festival and Harborfest.
Over the years the two have worked extensively as an acoustic duo while simultaneously honing their versatile electric act. Although new directions and influences have taken hold, a studied devotion to the traditions of both Pre and Post-War Blues has been maintained. The summer of 2009 was their busiest yet, as their four-piece band, featuring CNY legend Greg Dean on bass and up and coming drummer Justin Battle, was received throughout the region with an excitement that could only mirror what was happening onstage.
Matthew has increasingly appeared alongside local luminary Jimmy Wolf, his co-host for last summer's performance for Utica Monday Nite. Adam and Matthew are currently splitting time between hometown Utica and New York City, where they continue to work together as well as in various collaborative efforts throughout the metropolitan area (Adam holds a degree from William Paterson University's acclaimed Jazz Studies program). Look out for these brothers and be sure not to miss them when they come to your town!
