Mike Hamilton, an acclaimed guitarist and vocalist who has performed with Sting, Kenny Loggins and other legendary artists, is now appearing at Salt Creek Grille, 32802 Pacific Coast Highway, and Dana Point. He will perform on Fridays from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Hamilton’s music has been described as easy to admire and hard to categorize. His musicianship prompted Coast Magazine to call him “one of the more valued gems of the Orange Coast.” His inventive performances escort audiences through a sonic travelogue of diverse styles - from alternative, rock, blues, R&B, pop and country to jazz fusion and classical.
Hamilton toured internationally with Kenny Loggins, recording lead guitar solos, background vocals and rhythm guitar parts on seven of Loggins' gold and platinum Sony/Columbia albums.
