Combining critically acclaimed musicianship with a vast repertoire of influences ranging from John Lennon to Dr. John, THE ADRIAN DUKE PROJECT is a perfect fit for everything from a wedding reception to a company holiday party. A funky gumbo of New Orleans soul, jazz, rock and blues, THE ADRIAN DUKE PROJECT has pleased crowds at wedding receptions, corporate events, festivals, and concerts from Atlanta to Baltimore and everywhere in between. In 2007, Adrian was selected to be part of the band used as Richmond, VA's "Royal Welcome" for Queen Elizabeth II, and he has headlined festival stages throughout the Mid-Atlantic. It is this pedigree that separates THE ADRIAN DUKE PROJECT from the average "variety band" - he plays the songs you know and love, and leaves the cheese behind.

As the bandleader, Adrian makes every effort to make sure your event will be a night to remember for only the right reasons. His band, the Project, is available in several configurations, from the basic five piece to the thicker sound of the seven piece, and with or without the soulful stylings of female vocalist Theresa Richmond. Adrian is also capable of playing any number of classical pieces for a ceremony, performing solo or as a duo with another member of his band for cocktails, and playing a relaxing set of jazz and swing standards for dinner sets. Event planners and clients alike commonly note how professional and easy to work with Adrian is, as he works directly with them to tailor the band's setlist and style to the needs of their event. Adrian will even learn several songs for any show, providing it's something that fits his style of music. He's learned everything from Widespread Panic to "The Final Countdown" to ensure that everyone leaves happy at the end of the night.

The Adrian Duke Project was fantastic! Everyone danced the night away and we had many compliments on the music! They are easy to work with and very professional. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a stand out band for their special event. Thanks! Maggie and Mackey

We hired the Adrian Duke Project for our wedding. Adrian must have been pretty busy because he didn't get back to me when he said he would regarding song suggestions for the ceremony. That said, this band MADE my wedding reception. They bring the highest level of talent, a song list that pulls you onto the dance floor, and a presence that drips with the sheer pleasure of playing and working together. We arranged with the agent to have a 5-member band with a second guitar and no female lead vocalist. When they arrived, we had the female vocalist instead. This turned out to be a blessing, as Theresa Richmond is a show-stopper. We give them our highest recommendation.
