The Hamiltones Brought That Old Thang Back!
Charlotte, NC—July 22, 2017—The Hamiltones rocked out at the TCB 54 Hundred Bar & Grill for a fab day party, hosted by Nuff Ced (The Ultimate Host) with special appearances from Charlotte's on Prince of Soul, Anthony Hamilton, in addition to a visit from Mayor Jennifer Roberts.
Keeping eyes and ears glued for updates, we learned through social media that the Hamiltones tore it up. Their performance was as entertaining as New Edition at the BET Awards, coupled with a sound similar to the Chambers Brothers , but with engaging soul.
Shyness is not a reality for the singers; they are completely open and humorous while in chorus, so it made sense that they would put on for the city of Charlotte.
In person, the fellas took it back to an A cappella hymn during a press junket 20 minutes prior to their performance.
