Greg Adams musical journey has spanned nearly four decades. Earning both Grammy and Emmy nominations and an International Broadcasting Award from The Hollywood Radio and Television Society. Adams is a founding member of Tower Of Power, legendary for the horn arrangements that made the TOP horn section a sought out entity all its own. Greg has been a driving force to define artistry that transcends musical genres, still seeking out a course not yet traveled, is at his best when set to explore a new artistic destination.

East Bay Soul 2.0 – The 2012 release from trumpeter, songwriter Greg Adams, produces a collection of 10 dynamic songs backed by East Bay Soul. Adams signature sound is clearly stamped through out the album’s 10 tracks, an equal mix of instrumental and vocal songs- a blend of Funk Jazz, R&B and Soul.

With a nod to the music Adams loves, and inked in his own style creates music that is relevant and fresh. Greg takes you on an incredible ride that is groove driven, weaving his horn melodies with soul drenched vocals into a collection of songs that are all at once dynamic and dreamy, cinematic and oh so to fall in love with.

East Bay Soul with a most soulful ensemble creates a union that has been nothing short of musically miraculous. Their extraordinary combined talents all bring incredible energy to the music with heart and soul. Dedicated to a singular vision of bringing their brand of funk and the magic of their live performance into the studio.

Are you ready to FuNk your World?

Quite simply this is an incredible show from a group of musicians who generate the sort of tight horn filled rhythms that are both entirely timeless and totally to die for.

If you have not had the opportunity to see East Bay Soul live! Here is your chance to see them up close and personal.

Former Tower of Power mastermind Greg Adams has created this new project called East Bay Soul. Members of the band are Greg Adams (trumpet), Brian Allen (bass), Johnnie Bamont (sax and flute), Michael Paulo (sax), Joey Navarro (keyboards), Johnny Sandoval (percussion), Evan Stone (drums), Lee Thomburg (trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone) and James Wirrick (guitar). But don’t await an instrumental-only band. On the new album East Bay Soul are also a lot of vocals.

Nevertheless the band stands in the tradition of Tower of Power with a strong emphasis on the horns. East Bay Soul is entitled after the San Francisco East Bay Area. The group presents contemporary jazz with a big dose of R&B, just the right mixture to let you dance and groove.
