"Adam is great to work with! ...Does his homework, always striving to do better and learn more... quality musician, can't say enough!" - Jon Rabideaux of Brother Jon Band
"Our full-time variety band "Rhino" needed a reliable, solid drummer to fill in for a few months. We ran auditions looking for the right stuff. Adam auditioned like a pro, knew what to play and what not to play. He was open to playing with a click or without and was comfortable using an in-ear monitor system. When we audition, skill and talent, which Adam has plenty of, are just as important as being on time, reliable, honest and easy to communicate with. Adam was the full package, a great guy with huge talent and skill in many styles. If we ever need a drummer, for a permanent spot or to fill in, Adam would absolutely be my first call." -Eric Kratochvil
