Introduction: I have two musical services that I offer: 1. An acoustic/electric ensemble that can set the mood for a cocktail/dinner party or an intimate wedding ceremony. 2. A full-scale, big-energy wedding/private event band featuring a 6-9 musicians capable of playing any style of music that gets you going. Seriously, shoot for the moon, and we will pull it off. What really sets this band apart from other bands and wedding music agencies is the emphases we have on making the music and band completely unique to what honors you and your personality. This means a unique set list for every event, and hands-on meetings to make sure that all your musical aspirations are met with my services. The roster consists of some of the best musicians in the city and they are all wonderful and compassionate people who are great to be around. You can contact me directly, via this email, or text me to discuss how I can help meet your musical needs and desires in a way that’s authentic to you. I am happy to connect you with past clients for references- just ask!

Adam and his band were absolutely perfect. The planning phase getting them on board for our wedding was smooth and easy, and they were unbelievably flexible day-of. They showed up on-time and ready to rock. Our reception was out in the woods at a beach site on the water with no power. Because of some bad weather, we had to change the timing and location of our events last minute, and Adam and his band rolled with all of it without batting an eye. They played outside under our tent, then when it got really cold and windy hauled their equipment on a short hike to a house (where the power had gone out) and played in the (warm but dark) living room. The music was excellent and beautiful, and they read the vibe of the party so well - knowing the times to be a featured performance, but also when to fade more into the background. Would recommend 100 times over.

Thanks so much! It was so much fun being involved in an incredibly loving event. It was also great to play an unplugged set for a change!

These guys rock. They played a party we threw to celebrate our friend's marriage. Working with Adam during the lead up to the event was seamless and easy. Adam was responsive and worked to build a set-list to what we wanted for the party. The quality of music was superb. The lead singer had a great voice, engaged the crowd, and kept the party going all night. The band was fantastic, and the lead guitarist shreds. The dance floor was never empty as the band successfully covered songs from rock n roll to pop to county to blue grass, and satisfied everyone's musical preferences. I would highly recommend this band for any event or wedding. They helped make a great night even better with their talent, skill, and energy.

I was lucky enough to have Adam play at a party last summer. He and his band were amazing! They were extremely professional and the quality of music was top notch. They had everyone dancing all night long. Adam is also an absolute magician with a guitar.

I can't say enough about our experience with The Adam Williams Band. We throw an annual party on Guemes and needed something big to change the game for our 10 year anniversary...and could not be happier that we called our guy Adam to elevate the party!! Start to finish, amazing. The planning was smooth, professional and stress-free. For the material, Adam struck the perfect balance of asking for general guidelines while taking creative liberty in pulling from his deep repertoire and amazing sense for what would make an awesome party...the result was a mash of such incredible and well-executed tunes that literally had the entire party dancing for 3 straight hours. And it wasn't your standard playlist, that is for sure...many songs we all knew and loved but with surprising selections and those off the typical cover circuit. And, Julia had the mix DIALED! Such good people in the band that honestly added to the vibe as well. All the talk the next day was about AWB!! We are so incredibly thankful and know that we will be making the same phone call for any event, big or small, going forward. Thanks guys!!!
