Adam Hall & The Velvet Players

Classic Rhythm & Blues

Singer/trumpeter Adam Hall and his foot-stomping, hip-wiggling, shoulder-shaking “little big band” are the real deal. Worshipping at the altar of soul icons James Brown, Ray Charles and Harry Connick Jr. Adam and his Velvet Players have toured the world to great acclaim, and now they're back in Australia to take you on your own tour of the classic Rhythm & Blues of the 1940s and '50s. Prepare to be swung hard through some of Adam's awesome originals too.

"The students were completely under Adam and the VP's spell from the start. They were keen to put up their hands to answer questions and to volunteer to play instruments or participate in some scatting. Their level of enthusiasm was fantastic." Anna Lissienko, Music Teacher - Collier Primary School 

"The presentation was flawless and completely engaging at all times. Information and humour were seamlessly entwined and Adam and his crew had the girls eating out of his hands!" Helen Beaton, Music Coordinator - Methodist Ladies College
