Inspired by musically-adept family, Paul Bomar started his musical journey at the age of 13 by picking up a used beginner guitar and learning a few rock tunes. Upon receiving a dubbed copy of Miles Davis's "'Round About Midnight" at the age of 16, he developed a love for jazz that has only grown in the years since.
After playing in several funk and rock bands, Paul set out to share his passion for jazz with the Raleigh-Durham area and performed with his own groups and other jazz combos, as well as working as a session musician for numerous performers in the area. Paul plays, as described by others, "tastefully, economically, tunefully, swinging", drawing from traditional influences such as Kenny Burrell and Jim Hall as well as more recent players such as Ed Bickert and Peter Bernstein.
Paul has numerous studio and live albums under his belt. Comfortable with any instrumental configuration, Paul can provide jazz for a wide range of events or locales, including clubs, corporate events, private parties, weddings, or restaurants.
