The Loomers songbook is a trip through the American musical landscape –– infused with the classic sounds of driving rock, heartland folk, rock & soul, and retro-1980s pop –– filled with the joy, hope, sorrow and wonder of growing older. Their cover song list runs from the 1950s through the 1990s and includes everyone from Elvis and Sam Cooke to The Beatles and The Monkees to The Spinners and The Commodores to Bruce Springsteen and U2.
