"Riding the Freeway of Love" brings Aretha Franklin’s musical legacy to life in this newly created and high intensity tribute show. Be dazzled by the breathtaking vocals of Annie Adams as she takes you on a journey through the wonderful songs and bodies of work of Aretha Franklin.  Along with the accompaniment of her live band "The Annie Adams Experience" this is a beautifully crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers.

         LEAD VOCALS: Annie Adams
         BACKGROUND VOCALS:  Kyran McShaw and Melvinie Jackson
         DRUMS: Jordan Johnson
         KEYS: Josh Isaac
         LEAD GUITAR: Cam Moore

Annie Adams
What do you get when you combine the smooth vocals of classic R&B and Jazz, along with the energy and fun of today? An irresistible cocktail that smooths the soul and heightens your senses by the name of Annie Adams.

While she grew up on gospel, her sound resonates and innovates like Ledisi and Jill Scott. To top it off, she incorporates the cosmopolitan sensibilities of an educated, well-traveled, and well-rounded young woman to create a soulful aesthetic that is anything but around the way. 

There’s every day and there’s exceptional. Annie Adams’ fans know the difference, and that’s why they can’t get enough of this 21st century entertainer.

Bringing back the pure R&B sound combining intense vocals, jazz, gospel & blues, Annie Adams continues to mesmerize. 

Currently, based in Indian Trail, NC (just outside of Charlotte, NC), her spirit & essence of soul stemmed from the church. 

Being an only child pushed Annie to recognize her gift as she continues to evolve.

Not only has she been a female demo vocalist for Virgin Records, Capital Records & Bad Boy Records, Annie has also shared stages with several artists such as Tank, Dru Hill, Hi-Five, Big Daddy Kane, Sunshine Anderson, Nikki D & the R&B group, SOLO, to name a few. 

Annie’s powerful vocal performances have also been highly showcased in various shows and events as well.

Her mission is to continue to create a melodic sound that will keep you wanting more.

Prepare for the journey to take you on a nostalgic ride through the heartfelt sound of the voice of Miss Annie Adams.

BOB JAMES

WEBSITE
The career of Bob James is long, varied and continues to evolve at every turn. Discovered by Quincy Jones at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival in 1963, 58 albums and innumerable awards would follow through five decades.

In 1974, his album, One, launched a lifelong music career and the creation of of his own label, Tappan Zee Records. His own gold seller, Touchdown, included his composition, “Angela”, and was the instrumental theme from the sitcom Taxi, and possibly James’ best know work. Bob composed all the original music used in that television series for its entire run. One On One, the first in three collaborations with Earl Klugh, was awarded a Grammy in 1980 for Best Pop Instrumental Performance, and has sold over a million copies. During this time, James set the standard for the smooth jazz sound in the late 1970s.

Other notable solo and collaborative projects include:
Three classical albums for the CBS Masterworks division including Rameau, The Scarlatti Dialogues & Bach keyboard concertos with the Pekinel Sisters.
Double Vision, Grammy award winning album, in collaboration with David Sanborn, and produced by Tommy LiPuma. 
Multiple albums under the jazz group Fourplay spanning decades with numerous awards.
Collaborative album titled, Flesh & Blood, with his daughter Hilary that proceeded with a 15 U.S. city tour.
Grammy nominated collaborations with Earl Klugh (Cool), Kirk Whalum (Joined At the Hip), and his solo project Joy Ride.
More solo projects include Dancing On the Water and a #1 Contemporary Jazz Radio title track from Morning, Noon, & Night.
Tribute album to pianist who inspired James;  Ahmad Jamal, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, and Oscar Peterson, among others.
Awarded the George Benson Lifetime Achievement Award by the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards in 2006 and also released Urban Flamingo.
In 2009, James released a Christmas album with Hilary James.
Composed music for the Broadway play 'Impressionism'
Plus many more!

Bob continues to maintain a commitment to sophisticated production and arrangements. His complete music career can be found on his website. 

While James is recognized as one of the progenitors of smooth jazz, his music has also had a profound effect on the history of hip hop, having been sampled often. Two of James’ songs–“Nautilus” from 1974’s One and “Take Me to the Mardi Gras” from 1975’s Two–are among the most sampled in hip hop history.

DAVE POTTER

LISTEN
A native of North Carolina, Dave began playing drum set in high school and starting performing with his elders in the RDU area at the age of 16. Following his graduation from Florida State University, he was  chosen from a national pool of applicants to be a member of the Louis  Armstrong Quintet at the University of New Orleans. Unfortunately, the  tragedy of hurricane Katrina temporarily ended his hopes for a career in  Louisiana. Soon after, Dave was awarded a full scholarship to the  prestigious Julliard Jazz Program in New York City. However, after  several days of intense meditation he declined the offer and returned to  Florida State University, where he received his Master’s Degree after  further collaboration with his mentor Marcus Roberts. In 2010, Potter  was featured in a novel entitled "The New Face of Jazz" about the  younger generation of Jazz musicians making an impact in the current  scene. Dave is now located in Atlanta where he maintains a busy teaching  and performing schedule while also touring the globe as a member of The  Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet as well as his new project as a leader,  Retro Groove.

KEVIN COLE
WEBSITE


“America’s Pianist,” Kevin Cole, has received accolades from some of the foremost critics in America: “A piano genius...he reveals an understanding of harmony, rhythmic complexity and pure show-biz virtuosity that would have had  Horowitz Vladimir smiling with envy," wrote arts critic Andrew Patner.


When Cole sits down at the piano, you would swear Gershwin himself was at work… Cole stands as the best Gershwin pianist in America today,” Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune.


Cole has performed with over 100 orchestras worldwide including: sold-out performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl; BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall; National Symphony at the Kennedy Center; Hong Kong Philharmonic; San Francisco Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and many others.


He made his Carnegie Hall debut with the Albany Symphony in May 2013.


Kevin Cole is an award-winning musical director, arranger, composer, vocalist, archivist and producer who garnered the praises of Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, E.Y. Harburg, Hugh Martin, BurtonLane, Marvin Hamlisch, Stephen Sondheim and members of the Jerome Kern and Gershwin families.


He was the only pianist Hamlisch used for his Gershwin concerts from 2004 to his untimely death in 2012 and Kevin was featured soloist for the PBS special, Gershwin at One Symphony Place with the Nashville Symphony.

ONE IRISH ROVER

WATCH

"Since 1967 I have savored every album and recording while singing along to the incredibly melodic and mystical Irish genius of George Ivan Morrison (Van’s) musical works. I have always been taken by the spiritual intent of his writings and interesting combinations of rhythmic creativity that is uniquely Van Morrison’s signature style.     


Putting together the best of the old, new, and eclectic songs of Van Morrison that spans over 6 decades of musical genius is daunting but worthwhile. Someone needed to help keep the magic and spirit of Van’s incredible musical genius alive.  I have been both blessed and honored to help do just that.


Take a ride with me through Vans collection of Blues, Soul and Rock ballads all blended in a Celtic Stew of uplifting beats, heart- felt searching for understanding, soul touching melodies, and jazzy compilations that deliver you back to a rustic Irish Pub somewhere in the countryside of Ireland where the beer, Irish whiskey and music flow warmly together until the “wee hours of the mornin”.


It has long been a passion of mine to present some of the greatest music on the planet composed and written by ‘Van the Man” Morrison. Join me in that celebration!"
~ Pat Garvey

A graduate of Miami’s School Of Music, Euge launched his professional career in Miami in the mid-80s, playing in salsa bands, Top 40 club bands and doing the occasional high-profile session date like Expose’s “Seasons Change,” a #1 Billboard AC hit. In 1987 he moved to L.A., wrote a track for Richard Elliot’s The Power of Suggestion and Elliot recommended Euge to take over his spot in Tower of Power. Euge toured with TOP for four years, including a year backing Huey Lewis & The News. He went on to record, tour or perform with the likes of Joe Cocker, The Eurythmics, The Gap Band, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville and Richard Marx (that’s Euge’s horn on “Keep Coming Back,” a #1 AC hit duet he recorded with Luther Vandross). In 1999, Euge started recording his own material, dubbing himself Euge Groove, and posting his music on the now-defunct MP3.com website; downloading started almost immediately and Euge was soon topping the MP3.com Jazz chart. He signed soon thereafter with Warner Bros.




Euge Groove has garnered a devout following with his irresistible mix of danceable grooves, mind-bending hooks, R&B-infused melodies, and inspired solos. Having collaborated with everyone from Tina Turner Elton John and Bonnie Raitt to Tower of Power and Aaron Neville, Euge Groove is never short on inspiration. 


Through the years, Euge’s love of Jazz, R&B, Gospel, and Blues have all come together to inform his personalized sound.


Euge Groove further asserts himself as a vital force in the continuum of Contemporary Jazz and promises he has no intentions other than to Groove On!
