Jon Gomm Blackpool on Thursday 17th December 2020
Performing in his hometown for the first time in years Bootleg Social presents the incomparable, virtuoso guitarist Jon Gomm
The singer-songwriter uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, basslines and twisting melodies all at the same time. His emphasis is still on the soulful vocals and songwriting, and his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson to Radiohead.
Live, he combines deeply personal performances and a natural wit, with a once seen, never forgotten two-handed guitar style, both physical and complex, producing sounds you can barely believe are coming from a humble acoustic guitar.
“Wonderful to watch. Genius.” - Stephen Fry
“Hands down the most amazing guitarist I have ever seen!” - Tommy Lee (Motley Crue)
'Jon you are a genius man, I LOVE your music and playing!' - Steve Lukather (Toto)
'There are very few musicians on the planet who can actually strike me speechless with the beauty and skill of their playing. Jon Gomm is one of those musicians.' - Randy Blythe, Lamb Of God
