Joshua Adams Band

Local band making a name for themselves

I stumbled on to this band at the Taste of Tacoma and since then I have followed them to different venues and think this will be the next big band out of the Seattle area.

Their sound is refreshing, up beat with lyrics that mean something. Trying to explain their sound is difficult because they have a acoustic pop/rock sound but they also incorporate a Jazz flare within the music. I would say simular to a Dave Matthews but with a John Mayer as well.

I just went to a show they had over the weekend in Bremerton. The one think I noticed about this band is that the crowds that listen to them are all over the board, early 20's to late 40's were in the crowd.
Joshua Adams is a amazing writer of lyrics and has a voice that is new and refreshing as well. If you listen to the lyrics they actually make sen ce and have a story to tell. His band mates are amazing as well. The Keys and sax player are over the top with their sound and solo jams throughout their songs. The drummer is a show in it's self. I think this band will help change the direction of the seattle music scene. It's refreshing!

Check them out on the web or at a show because I think you will see that they have a new refreshing sound that you will want to hear as they grow.

I wish more clubs in the area would take notice. Get rid of the heavy metal and garage band stuff and lets bring back seattle as a place with great music. Don't get me wrong their are some good bands in the area, but this band is refreshing and fun

I saw this band out at a fesitval called plogfest. Do you know that this band was the only one that wasn't heavy metal and they were the only ones to get asked to do an encore? pretty much shows you what all the metal heads thought of this band.

Cindy says ... on Thursday, Oct 1 at 9:43 AM

We listened to these guys when they first started at the Hub. There was only 3 of are fantastic...I wonder if they would play the Hub again...probably not.

Nice sound, be dedicated and you'll make it. I've been in the music business for 30 years it's tough but you have a very interesting sound. Like to hear you on the radio to hear the response.

Michael A says ... on Wednesday, Sep 30 at 7:48 AM

Nice tunes. I haven't heard of them until now but listened to their songs on their web musicians. I'm a muscian and know good musicians when I hear them...great Job JAB you will go far

Great sound. I think they are out of Dupont

Sarah Green says ... on Tuesday, Sep 29 at 1:34 PM

Cool, very nice to see quality back in the guys are awsome. Nice looking as well !

Jenea says ... on Tuesday, Sep 29 at 1:32 PM

Cool sound, nice to hear something other than a screaming guitar player who probably zoned out on drugs...keep it up JAB I'll see you guys soon live

Michael J. says ... on Tuesday, Sep 29 at 12:47 PM

I completely agree. I used to be Josh's drummer a couple years ago, when the "bandification" process of his songs was just beginning. I returned recently to see them, and was just astounded at how rich their sound had become. Awesome!

Tom C says ... on Tuesday, Sep 29 at 12:37 PM

I have to agree. I'm tired of the boring Seattle Music scene, we need them in Seattle.

Mara M says ... on Tuesday, Sep 29 at 12:35 PM

Great Band! I agree, very refreshing
