Adams Township is a 5 piece Jazz-Funk fusion Band from Atlanta, they extend their greasy sweaty palms. With grooves that run so thick, you'll be thinking you are above the law, breaking into cars and what not, washing axle grease from your forehead in the gas station bathroom. Their current lineup has been together for 5 years, always fusing disparate elements of jazz. Adams Township plays the eastern seaboard as much as they can, looking for opened minded audiences, to spread the sounds of modern jazz fusion. They are adamantly trying to keep a sector of the American music industry alive that is on the bottom end of the promotional spectrum. For several years Adams Township has been mesmerizing audiences from Atlanta to Toronto and New York City, to Columbus OH, and have played large festivals including the Atlanta Jazz Fest and the G.C.E.H. Fest in Mobile,AL. Adams Township has been featured in many music papers from Ohio to Savannah,GA. Most notably the Cincinnati Beat said ' Adams Township has chops to spare, using their formal training, the instrumental quintet jettisons into free-form exploration from the finessed base, gliding gracefully on a wave of breathing, open-ended grooves.' also from Columbus Alive ' with their solid musicianship and creative repertoire, Adams Township puts on an electic show that often grooves but isn't afraid to swing either.' according to the Savannah Morning News ' Adams Township has been blending musical styles and blurring the boundaries that once existed between established genres... and, they do it well.' and finally from the Charleston Post and Courier ' while Adams Township incorporates more modern elements of trancy funk, extended jams and experimental rock to create a sound that touches on the familiarity of classic jazz, it has the potential to venture into unexpected places night after night.' With that some of their many influences are 70's Miles Davis, Brecker Brothers, Tower of Power, and Larry Coryell. As Adams Township forges ahead with a cutting edge sound, and taking audiences to the far reaches of the sonic spectrum, they are one of the most stimulating bands playing today.
