Client Testimonials: –––––––––––––––– "Professional, great sound, great with the crowd." We were very pleased to have Adam play solo acoustic at our Tiki night. He has a great voice, excellent performer. He even got some of our guests involved in the show singing with him, and made it really fun. Communication before and after the event was very timely and responsive. I like the fact that he offers solo, duo and full band options as well as DJ & lighting. We will definitely have him play our venue again." – Vikki "Performance was Amazing! The Best." "My 40th went so smoothly relaxed and so fun thanks to Adam! Super responsive, very organized and came on time! We enjoyed His performance as well as we will ask him to come more to our venues! You will not be disappointed!" – Pavlo "Great band!" "I hired them as a duo and they were fabulous. We had a 1980s themed party and they accommodated the theme. Adam even stayed a bit after to DJ 80s tunes for us! I would hire this band again in a heart beat." – Deanna "Adam is the Absolute BEST!" "We had Adam for our Fall house party. What a blessing and we a so grateful to have found him. He has been exactly what one might expect and want from a true professional entertainer! He’s vocals are outstanding, guitar, timing and blending in with the party guests and hosts make him my 100% top recommendation. BOOK HIM, and have a peace of mind that your party is well taken care off. Also, he’s great about choosing the right music." – Ray
