Adam Compeau

Vocals - Drums

Writer/Arranger of Various Styles of Music.  Trumpeter/Vocalist who also dabbles with the Drums, Keyboard and light Guitar.

Playing and singing Jazz and Jazz/Rock as well as Leading Worship are some of my passions.  I started out as a Classical trumpeter in the Detroit area and was made Principle trumpet of the Detroit Concert band right out of High School. Performing with a Beatles Cover Band, Horn Band, Jazz bands and Variety Bands in the Phoenix area have kept me musically inspired over the years.

The Postmodern Hard Bop Crusaders and Taken by the Horns bands are my two current bands that I am really passionate about!  Playing trumpet with the one and singing and playing drums with the other.
