"Adam is my go to musician and DJ in Charleston. He has created a unique atmosphere using his catalogue of live and recorded music selections. He’s provided subtle background guitar and singing solos at a small cocktail reception for an elite crowd and he’s hyped up a company Christmas party with his rock and roll sounds mixed perfectly with his DJ-ed selections. Adam is professional, timely, and knowledgeable. I have worked with Adam on several entertainment projects and will continue to request his services."
Corporate Event Client
"Adam is a fantastic musician and a friendly guy. We hired him to play a show 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!"
