The Gary McAdams Band are creators, masters AND lovers of what they call "Sometimes Spicy, Occasionally Original, Always Tasty...Classic American Music"!
Country, Swing, Blues, Honky Tonk, R&B, Cajun and a dash of Rock & Roll are combined, stirred up and heated up - and then sometimes cooled down - to create a distinct combination of Art, Entertainment & Commerce!
The Gary McAdams Band is a five-piece group consisting of three premier lead vocalists, spine-tingling harmonies, virtuoso instrumental ability and a rhythm section that grooves so well that the audience can't help but groove along and move along. With more than 300 songs in their repertoire, this fantastic group of musicians puts on a show made up of dance tunes, riveting ballads, original music and unique covers of familiar songs that will not only entertain the audience, but also move them...emotionally and physically!
All five members are long-time pros who have toured extensively all over North America, the Caribbean and Mexico's resorts, playing in venues as diverse as night clubs, corporate events, festivals, casinos and concert halls, as well as numerous appearances on radio, television and recording projects of their own and other artists.
Some of the venues they have played - either together or with other acts - include Billy Bob's Texas in Ft Worth, Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville, House of Blues in Chicago, Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Sandals Caribbean & Mexico resorts, Menominee Casinos & Resorts, St Croix Casinos and The Las Vegas Strip.
Just as importantly as the experience and talent though; everyone actually likes and respects each other personally as well as musically. That mutual love, respect and sheer joy of creating music together shines through in each performance.
