The sound of Greg Adams is one of the world’s best-known musical signatures. Founding member of Tower Of Power, legendary for his arrangements that made the TOP horn section a sought out entity all its own. With countless collaborations in the studio and live on stage, Adams has made his mark on a broad stretch of today’s music landscape that includes jazz, pop, rock, R&B, soul, and funk. His 1995 debut Hidden Agenda went all the way to #1 on Billboard and stayed there for five weeks… He hasn’t looked back since. Grammy and Emmy nominated trumpeter Adams is now the driving force behind East Bay Soul. The expansive ensemble is a blend of Funk Jazz, R&B, and Soul. This soulful ensemble creates a union that has been nothing short of musical wizardry. Their extraordinary combined talents all bring incredible energy to the music with heart and soul

Collectively we have recorded, performed and toured worldwide with hundreds of artists individually over the span of our careers. Our music is horn-driven infused with R&B vocals and a wicked funky rhythm section. Creating a perfect blend of talent and camaraderie that tells this ten-piece group we know we have something special. With East Bay Soul Greg say’s “ It’s like looking bliss in eye.
