As one of the most in demand blues musicians on the Colorado music scene for over 20 years, Big Jim Adam branched out and started performing at concert halls, clubs and festivals in Kansas, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. Along with his piano playing musical partner, John Stilwagen, the duo were semi-finalists in the 2009 International Blues Competition (held in Memphis) and finalists in 2010. Big Jim won the Solo Acoustic Blues Competition at the 2012 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
Constantly recording in his home studio as time allowed, Adam has released six CDs; three solo efforts, two with John Stilwagen and a live recording of the seven piece Jim Adam Blues Band.
Big Jim Adam relocated to Melbourne, Florida in the summer of 2013.
As cream rises to the top, Jim soon found himself playing shows on a regular basis in his new found location. Joining the The Blues Alliance of the Treasure Coast, a local blues society, Jim competed in local tryouts for the International Blues Competition. Jim won. Competing in Memphis in January, 2014, Big Jim Adam once again made it to the semi-finals.
While performing in Florida, Jim caught the attention of guitarist Steve Rinker. Always the gracious entertainer, Jim had Steve sit in with him from time to time. The combination of talents led way to Steve and Jim Joining forces and performing as The Big Blues Machine on a regular basis. They soon landed a steady Thursday night gig at Murdock’s Southern Bistro in Cocoa, Florida.
Colorado music fans will be in for a treat because Steve Rinker will be joining Big Jim for his show at the Gold Room. In addition, as fans of Big Jim Adam know, he usually has special guests sitting in.
