THE JOHN ADAMS BAND
If you're not already a fan of John Adams, then imagine a mix of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and James Morrison with a reach in his tone to match James Blunt and James Bay and you've got it!! Further imagine this complemented by a team of experienced and talented musicians; performing all the most popular songs from the last 50 years with the ability to either relax you into a day dream or get you all worked up in a partying frenzy. Does this sound like the live music you're after?????
With all this in mind, there's no wonder John and his band are acheiving more and more success. Last year alone they performed over 200 gigs including playing before Take That, T'pau, Russel Kane, Status Quo, UB40 Katherine Jenkins, Lemar and many more. Despite the progression in John's activities, he still sticks to his busking roots and is often seen in different cities drawing quite a crowd. The experience of performing to strangers really shows. His interaction with the audience and his ability to get them involved is his biggest strength.
There really is no gig too big or too small, too wild or too intimate.
MEET THE BAND
The John Adams Band consist of John, Andy, Ty and Lee. John and Andy are both multi-instrumentalists which enables the band to make a full and varied sound depending on the needs of the audience. With bass player Lee providing a steady rhythmic foundation to accompany Ty's solid beat on the drum kit you'll find it hard to resist the urge to follow the beat and pulse of your favourite tunes. Lee also adds a vocal harmony as the icing on the cake to John's already fantastic vocals. This option is definitely our recommendation if you want to get your guests up, moving and singing along.
Over the years John and his band members have created a large network of musicians and if you wanted the size of the band to increase this can be arranged. We also offer The John Adams Trio if you are on a tight budget or have limited space. The Trio are a smaller version of the full band that are still more than capable of filling your dance floor. Instead of a full drum kit we use acoustic drums and we give Lee the bass player the night off.
