"My husband and I hired Adam to play music at our wedding reception on 9/8/17. He arrived early to set everything up. His set up was legit and professional and he even brought some cool lights to add ambience to the dance area. When the guests arrived he played instrumental jams as well as some well known dance tunes to get the party going. He was great at reading the crowd to provide exactly the tempo of music that was appropriate. HIs talent far surpasses many other musicians I have heard. He is professional, friendly, and easy going. His positive energy and likable personality will fit right in with any crowd. Adam is an extremely talented and passionate musician. If you are looking for a musician for an event, I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Adam. You won't be disappointed!!!" Melissa Miley

"Adam is a fantastic musician and a friendly guy. We hired him to play a gig for an art opening at the gallery. Not only was he prompt and professional but he played great music that was just right for the room. He communicated with us to make sure that the volume was good and that everything was sounding how we wanted it to. We chose him for his lyric-less jams which is exactly what we got. We were more than pleased with Adam and his performance that evening and look forward to having him play our future events. Highly recommend!" -The Art Mecca of Charleston
"Adam's real passion and understanding of music along with his easy people skills make him a great music instructor. I'm a 44 year old who finally decided to follow through with my long standing love of music and take guitar lessons. Adam has been a perfect fit to help me pursue my dream. He understood me and my raw abilities and has been a great teacher and guide using insightful and strategic lessons and technique that have helped me get off the ground with my play quickly." Blake
