We specialize in soft-jazz musical settings for dinners, banquets and receptions, to add elegance and vitality to vitality to your event. Our rhythmic, bluesy jazz style brings to mind Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck,, Thelonious Monk, and Ramsey Lewis. Our playlist ranges from old standards to pop hits and soul and R&B classics.
The Bob Adams Trio understands why event hosts often hesitate to bring in live music: “Won't it be too loud in this space? I don't want guests to have to shout to talk.”
Happily, we can answer “No, it won't and they won't — satisfaction guaranteed.”
We can promise that because we offer something few other bands do: We give you final control over our volume level. We put all our sound through our mixer before it gets to the PA system, which means we can control our volume with just one slider — and we let you set and monitor the level yourself, if you like.
All the while, we'll be wearing headphones, listening at a normal level so we can still play with verve and hit a good groove. You can turn us up or down as you want, like a radio, but you will still get the vibrancy and excitement that only comes from live music.
Another unusual thing: We most often play without a drummer, or only use digital drums. You'll be surprised how much rhythm flows from the interaction of the remaining instruments. And the string bass, despite its naturally quiet tone, under Irvin Jjoseph's fingers actually drives our band, giving us a cool, classic sound.
We're not a dance band, although people often do dance to our music (and we have a few classic rock 'n' roll songs on standby). Rather, we play sophisticated, melodic jazz that's “good listening” but doesn't overwhelm the room -- satisfaction guaranteed!
