Adam Bodine plays Adam Bodine

All day

For this special show, Nocturne welcomes back to the stage the entertaining and musically eclectic Adam Bodine. Adam will be joined by Matt Smiley (bass) and Dru Heller (drums).  Renowned Colorado pianist Adam Bodine will be leading a top shelf trio in performing Adam's diverse catalogue of original works.  Adam’s repertoire is constantly shapeshifting and playfully intermingles a broad range of styles, sounds, feels, and moods.  Undeniable is Bodine’s natural musicality and joy of playing, which paired with his lovely sense of humor, always shines on stage and treats audiences to memorable experiences. In addition to this upcoming live performance, also definitely worth exploring are Adam Bodine’s two recent studio albums “Scenes of Changery” and “Nurtured by Nature.”
