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. The John Adams Duo consist of John and Andy. Both musicians are multi-instrumentalists which enables two people to make a really full and varied sound depending on the needs of the audience. The Duo are perfect for smaller, more intimate, atmospheric gigs such as a garden party, a house gig, complimenting you as you walk down the aisle or keeping your guests entertained throughout the day but as you can see they are also fully capable of getting the party started. If you're after something a little bigger, please check out The John Adams Band.

John is a born performer, whose smile has the ability to blind and whose voice has the ability to pierce the heart
