Originally from Massachusetts, drummer Adam Everett made a home in the Bay Area – performing, recording, and teaching private students. He graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Studies in 2011 after studied with local music legends John Shifflet, Jason Lewis, Galen Lemmon and the late Joe Hodge. Adam performed regularly in the bay area with his own modern jazz group, The Adam Everett Quartet. He also taught private drum lessons at Music Village in Campbell, CA.

Adam then relocated to New York City, where he again performed in bands and taught weekly. There he collaborated with Dos Allen and Yoshiki Yamada to form The Day One Trio, a saxophone/bass/drums trio improvising complete sets of acoustic music as the house band for the Prime & Beyond Steakhouse  in the lower east side of Manhattan. The trio recorded an album entitled Day One.

Adam is an experienced cruise ship musician, having completed four contracts with Holland America Cruise Line performing in the party band, production orchestra, and lounge trio. He has sailed around the world to beautiful and astonishing places such as the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and Alaska.

Relocating to New Orleans in 2014, Adam worked with countless bands as a sideman, paying his dues in clubs on Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street, The French Market, and in local festivals such as French Quarter Fest and Jazz Fest. He maintained a full-time performance schedule for over seven years. He has a strong work ethic and takes learning new music very seriously. This includes active listening, taking notes, and rehearsing. Humbled by the musical legacy of New Orleans music, Adam learned patience and stamina by playing local gigs, some that lasted six hours! Adam takes pride in the diversity of his work and looks forward to playing multiple styles of music in a day, whether it’s Jazz, Blues, Americana, Brass Band or Cajun music.

Adam recently moved to Atlanta and is now available for hire locally!
