Meet Kathryn Loomis

Jazz Vocalist + Singer-Songwriter

Inspired by legends such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, Kathryn Loomis endeavors to tell a story with each song she sings. She conveys the nuanced emotions of vintage love songs with her natural stage presence and seemingly effortless musical intuition.

Loomis's specialty is singing with jazz combos and big bands, including her combo Kathryn Loomis & Company.

Her versatile voice is pure, soft, and warm. Whether singing a melancholy torch song or a cheerful swing tune, Kathryn’s classic approach and experience with the Great American Songbook makes her performances as timeless as the songs she sings.

Rapidly gaining the attention of the Central Coast, Loomis is currently a female vocalist with Starlight Dreamband and The Friendly Neighborhood Big Band.

Loomis is also an accomplished singer-songwriter. She recently recorded and released her debut album of original songs. The album is titled "The Nicest Thing" and was recorded at The Sauce Pot Studios in San Luis Obispo.

Review by Venteux Vineyards

"Kathryn Loomis and band were amazing! We had them play for our Brandy Release Party which is in December and they were able to mix in some Christmas/Holiday music. Many event attendees commented on how much they loved the music choice this year. We already booked them again for 2023!"

Review By: Ron McCarley, Director of Jazz Studies, Cuesta College

"Kathryn is always a delight to perform with. I chose her to record on my CD because she has a classic tone, beautiful intonation and expression. Her attention to the details of bringing a song to life are unbeatable. She has a sweet spirit and presence that you see immediately when she performs and whenever she is part of a project her presence adds something special."


Review By: John Knutson, Director of Choral and Vocal Jazz Program, Cuesta College

“Kathryn is the consummate jazz stylist. Everything she performs is period-appropriate in sound, looks and presence. Her stylistic knowledge of the swing era is impeccable. A joy to watch, dance and listen to!” 


Review By: Joanne Smith, Client of Private Party

“Kathryn and her band simply created a magical night at my home. Her voice is like butter, smooth and silky, but the entire elegant vibe she set for my party, which was the evening before my daughter’s wedding, was what made it an an over-the-top experience. She and her band of professionals were just great —- and Kathryn is simply beautiful. She also learned and played some of my daughter’s favorite songs to make it a more personal and memorable night. When the guests just wouldn’t leave at the designated time I asked Kathryn to play a bit longer, and no problem! I highly recommend Kathryn for any event.”

Kathryn Loomis & Co.- An Afternoon to Remember, Excerpt:

Kathryn Loomis & Co. is a collection of top-notch musicians that hails from the Central Coast. Kathryn is the leader and vocalist. Kathryn Loomis should be named Kathryn Luminous, because that’s what she was at our Sunday Session on May 29th at the Pismo Beach Veterans' Hall. Her confident and sultry vocals and her understated command of her back up musicians led to an amazing afternoon of jazz standard musical interpretation.  This was the first time they graced our stage. Kathryn was classy and elegant in a full-length gown, recalling an earlier era of fashion. Her dress was complemented by an elaborate crystal necklace and her hair swept into a Gibson Girl updo.  The band members all wore classic suits. . . 

 . . . Kathryn Loomis and Co. is an amazingly talented band, a real joy to watch, and great to dance to. Kathryn transports you to a time of long ago, a classy nightclub where you can fall in love. She is professional, charming, graceful, and extremely talented. She can enchant you in English, French, and Spanish. Her voice is confident, sultry, and sexy. She will bewitch you and capture your heart as she pours out one hit after another. After watching her you will be left with only one word, WOW!  She will surely be invited back to future Basin Street Regulars Sunday Sessions or an upcoming Jazz Jubilee by the Sea! 

 The band: Darrell Voss: Drums, Ron McCarley: Saxophones, Becky McClaflin: Piano, Travis Harms: Bass.
