Sam started his impressive blues and jazz career in the early 60s. With the influences of Little Richard and Ray Charles—Jerry Lee Lewis being the one to ignite his passion—Sam started his career touring with names like Del Shannon and The Duprees.

Sam bought his first Hammond B3 organ in 1965 and after studying theory and harmony at Grand View College, he made his move to jazz. Since those days Salomone has toured from Coast to Coast and within the Midwest including Chicago and Kansas City, but has in recent years decided to stay closer to home.

His work in Iowa has not gone without notice. Sam was inducted to the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame as well as the Iowa Blues Hall of FameMORE ABOUT SAM
