Between the Incident & the Event
Adam Fitz' soulful hollerin' and amped-up pop-rock quartet have been working rooms in Chicago since the 2005 release of Fitz's debut, 'Between the Incident and the Event.' Singer, folk storyteller, country crunk rocker and melodic screamer, Adam puts every inch of his pain and joy into his music. His voice is powerful and poignant; backed by the Drastics' rhythm section and 'rock scientist' Eddie Dixon, they come manic and hard, slink into steady grooves, and stretch out on melodramatic ballads heavy in themes of family, desire, and loss. Frequenting the windy city's most reputable rooms, such as Schubas and the Hideout, these boys occasionally work as the backing band for Ralph 'Soul' Jackson, and have shared bills with soul legends such as Syl Johnson, Clarence Reid, Sharon Jones (Dap-Kings), Roscoe Robinson, and Herman Hitson.
