Adam Deitch
Adam Deitch may have been predestined to be a drummer. The son of two professional funk drummers, Adam first picked up his sticks at the age of two. By eight, he was sitting in with his parents funk band, playing everything from jazz to funk and R&B.

Adam's interest in hip hop was sparked by his production work with his home town rap crew, The Secret Service. In 1992/3, he was frequently the
house drummer for The Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City, which backed up then emerging artists, Erika Badu, Mos Def, Company Flow, Mr. Lif and radio personality Bobito "The Barber".

Adam further honed his drumming and production skills while attending Berklee college of Music in 1994. There he met many like-minded, driven individuals, with whom he still collaborates to this day. The bands Fatbag, Lettuce, The Wallyís house band, The Formula and numerous other projects evolved from this network in Boston.

In his third year in Boston, he joined the world renowned Average White Band, whom he then joined and performed with for the following two years. While touring with AWB, Adam performed alongside many of his heroes including Earth Wind and Fire, Tower of Power and Chaka Khan.

After a brief stint with Lettuce at the Wetlands in NYC, he had an opportunity to play with Miles Davis Alumnus, jazz guitarist John Scofield, and joined Johnís band shortly thereafter. He has recorded on John's last two records, both Verve releases, Grammy nominated Uberjam and new release Up all Night, which he also shares composers credit on many of the tracks.

Adam currently resides in New York City focusing on his hip hop production skills by producing tracks for such artists as; Soulive, Michelle N'degeocello, Jurassic 5, J-Live, D.J. Green Lantern, Wordsworth, Benzino, Anthony Hamilton, Black Rob and Cam'ron.

As a bandleader, Adam's "Adam Deitch Project" is club music in the vain of a "Live Mix Tape", blending live trip-hop, broken-beat, dub, drum.

In 2010 Adam performed at the Modern Drummer Festival.
