Accomplished Trumpeter, Vocalist and Composer and multi-instrumentalist, Australian Adam Hall, began playing music at the age of ten, and later honed his craft at Berklee College of Music, Boston. In his early career Adam played at the Sydney Olympics and toured various cities all over the world working with numerous talents such as: James Morrison, Don Burrows, Frank Foster and Grace Knight, to name just a few.
In 2005 he formed a classic Rhythm & Blues band, “Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys” which was nominated for Best Jazz Act in the 2010 West Australian Music Industry awards, and is somewhat of an institution of the Perth music scene and is also renowned for its captivating live performances, marked by slick presentation and raw energy. Alongside Adam (vocals, trumpet) the band features
some of Western Australia’s finest musicians, with Mark Turner (guitar), Anthony Dodos (trombone), Matthew Hanson (drums), Kate Pass (double bass) and Ronan Chapple (keyboards).
The band, whose repertoire is rooted in the jazz and rhythm & Blues music of the ‘40s and 50s – classics from artists of that era and also from a large library of Adam Hall’s originals and arrangements, have performed extensively throughout Asia and Europe and released four albums.
