Singer/trumpeter Adam Hall and his foot-stomping, hip-wiggling, shoulder-shaking “little big band” are the real deal. Worshipping at the altar of soul icons James Brown, Ray Charles and Harry Connick Jr, Adam and his Velvet Players have toured the world to great acclaim, and now they’re back in Australia to take you on your own tour of how call and response can be used to make music. Your students may even find themselves invited up on stage to jam with the group!
