When someone needs live music for an event, any event really, I’ve got a guy. When I know someone is going to get married, I am adamant that they choose my guy. I’ve booked him no fewer than fifteen times over the last decade. And just like your general contractor is pretty handy, and swings a good hammer himself, you can also judge his work by the company he keeps. When I book my guy for a gig, he arrives on time, with a group of s***-hot session pros, ready to lay it down. That being said, a good player isn’t nearly as valuable as someone who can read the room. Set lists are cool. Having the ability to throw your set list out the window if the crowd is looking for something else makes all the difference in the world. Well, it’s the difference between a good night and an awesome night. It’s the sort of difference that makes you say, ‘Seriously, I’ve got a guy.’ Adam Cooke is my guy.
We’ve hired Adam for multiple corporate events and he’s never failed to impress! He’s a true professional, knows how to read the crowd and has many of the attendees singing along to old favourites. We look forward to working with him again this summer.
Canada’s Largest Ribfest has had the pleasure of working with Adam Cooke several times over the years. Whether he is playing with his band, or as a solo performer, Adam always entertains and engages the audience and becomes an instant favourite. An accomplished musician on both guitar and keyboards, with a smooth voice, I know I will receive a top class act. Add to that the fact that Adam is a total professional when it comes to booking, set up and other ‘behind the scenes’ responsibilities, the decision to book Adam is always an easy one.
Adam Cooke is a wealth of musical knowledge and talent. I have enjoyed his music at my place of work for years, and highly recommend him to everyone searching for a music professional to enhance their venue.
I have had the pleasure of booking Adam Cooke over the years at various establishments in Burlington. His musical talent is matched only by his professionalism. His ability to read his customers and his constant growth with new music makes him a guaranteed hit every time!
Adam Cooke was recommended to me by a good friend. I had asked for a band that would make my wife Anna’s birthday a memorable affair. We had a very simple criteria, we wanted a band that would get everyone up and dancing. We didn’t want to worry about anything besides making sure everyone had a great night. Adam and his team did not disappoint. They were able to learn a special request song we had for the night, “The Beatles Birthday Song” and play another tune that had special meaning for my wife. The timing was perfect, they read the crowd and the music flowed to the rhythm of the night. Everyone commented at the end of the night about how perfect the entertainment was. I would hire Adam again in a heartbeat and I would recommend his services to all of my friends.
