In 2005 Adam formed a classic Rhythm & Blues band, ‘Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys’. The band has become somewhat of an institution of the Perth music scene and renowned for its captivating live performances, marked by slick presentation and raw energy.
The band’s repertoire is rooted in the Jazz and Rhythm & Blues music of the 40’s and 50’s. Their inspiration comes from a wide range of artists from Louis Prima to James Brown. They also include a large library of Adam Hall originals and unique arrangements, some of which can be found on their five albums.
‘Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys’ have been a hit at major festivals and events around Australia, Europe and Asia. They've toured with legendary US Rhythm & Blues saxophonist Big Jay McNeely and played shows with legends Syl Johnson and Betty Harris. They’ve build up a steady following performing regularly throughout Europe and Asia since 2013.
