Adam's unique story begins while he was working as a bartender in bars and clubs around New England. He would join the band onstage sing a few Frank Sinatra numbers only to receive great feedback. Not knowing he had such a talent, Adam mostly sang for fun until he came across Lucky’s Lounge in South Boston, MA about 4 years ago.
Adam asked to sing with the band and unbeknownst to him, the owner of Lucky’s was in the audience.
He knew Adam had a talent that could not be matched. Adam began working at Lucky’s with the Bennett Miller Trio and was their regular Wednesday night act.
After about a year he began playing with the Al Vega Trio on Sunday nights singing all Frank Sinatra songs and the rest is history. Adam has recently been in high demand to perform at weddings, corporate events and any special occasion. His unique offering makes him a great addition for any affair.

I grew up in Enfield, a small town in New Hampshire near Dartmouth College. Growing up I discovered music at an early age when my dad noticed me tapping the beat to a TV show. Being a musician himself, my dad recognized the importance of this. I started out on drums around the age of three and then picked up guitar around twelve, teaching myself chords. I started writing songs around the age of 15 and started playing live shortly after.
My goals and dreams are to build a career off the songs I play and hopefully gain a few fans along the way. My music strives to make people happy: to cure them of their down times and keep them high when they're good. To all I wish Peace and Love!

Looking for a funny balloon twister? For more than twenty years I have been Mo The Clown. I entertain at events with twisted balloons and observations of life. I rarely perform in make up.
Why? Coulrophobia, the abnormal or exaggerated fear of painted clown faces and other bizarre attire (Santa, the Easter Bunny) is considered to be one of the top ten most common specific phobias in America today. Looking like a circus clown and being a clown are not the same thing.
Clowning is about unique problem solving. Lucy Ricardo is my favorite example. I am also a New Hampshire Justice of the Peace, performing weddings your way, from sedate to silly. Clinical studies indicate that frequent brushes with Mo The Clown can help reduce the formation of harmful mental plaque!
