Adam Johnston Band is an eclectic blend of professional musicians that are able to handle any situation. Although the full band is known for playing covers with a wide range of genres including: Funk, Rock, Pop, Jazz, & Even Bluegrass. They have also performed together as a solo, duo, or trio acoustic act on several occasions. Adam has been performing for 13 years now and plays lead guitar for the band "Prince Ivan" (A 10 piece dance band with horns based out of Branson). He also performs acoustic sets covering the singer/songwriter genre and recently even taken on the role of D-Jay for special occasions. This band is an incredibly talented group of musicians and can handle anything!
I searched for weeks to find the perfect band for our event. I scoured the internet for cover bands and finally came across Adam's band. I watched videos of Adam and chatted with him on the phone where he assured me that they would be able to do anything we wanted. He was right!
The event was chilled out with age ranges from 18-80. They did an excellent job of appealing to every age group and mixing it up at the same time. However, the best part was at the end, when the older crowd had left and the band could let loose a little bit. They were so incredible that we asked them to stay for 3 additional hours to jam out and go with it.
I would most definitely recommend Adam and his band for any event as they are not only extremely talented musicians, but also have such great attitudes and are a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to the next time!
Adam did a great job at our wedding! All of the quest were talking about how amazing he was and played a variety of music! Thanks for everything Adam! We enjoyed you and your music!!
