Excellent sound, professional and polite. Winning choice!

Adam performed for our organization's 25th Anniversary Celebration. He was the highlight of the party and sounded fantastic. I was thoroughly impressed with his sound, promptness, and professionalism. I would hire him again without reservation.

Having different set-ups means you also have flexibility in where you'd like to have your Adam play in your venue (an area as small as 3 feet by 5 feet will suffice).
