||Adam Beck graduated from Plymouth High School in Indiana in the year 2000. One year later he joined Denver and the Mile High Orchestra as a trumpet player.During the past decade Adam has entertained millions of people by performing on primetime television, radio, and at nearly a thousand venues across North America and Europe. He has performed at both the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, and at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens Greece. (Where he bought his wife’s wedding ring!)Crowds are often delighted not only by Adam’s music but also by his captivating stage presence and comedic timing. He has been known for his eccentric, theatrical, and silent antics and by his creative way of involving the crowd in a performance.
“I love being an entertainer. I like to impress people with skillful music and to make them laugh at the same time. If I can give people my best for two hours by playing, singing, dancing, and just having fun on a stage to the point where they leave the auditorium with a smile on their face and feeling relaxed, encourage, and at peace – if I can use something as simple and sometimes as silly as entertainment to communicate the truth that God loves you, then I’ve done my job.”
