Peet Project + Adam Hawley concert, A38 Ship Budapest, 24 May
When someone is discovered and offered a recording contract by Earth, Wind and Fire founder Maurice White, he must be an extraordinary talent. It is no wonder that guitarist Adam Hawley has become the hottest new artist in the young generation of contemporary jazz performers.

His four albums and the recordings he produced to date yielded 14 Billboard No. 1s and 40 (!) Top 30 hits. In addition to his solo career, he also played with The Manhattan Transfer, Natalie Cole, Dave Koz, Jennifer Lopez and Brian McKnight. Adam is also of the most in-demand music producers today and a favorite with American funk and jazz festival audiences.

His guitar playing is both sophisticated and energetic, and his improvisations are stunning. He will be performing in Budapest for the first time in a joint concert with the Peet Project, one of Hungary’s internationally acclaimed young pop-jazz bands, whom he first met at the 2016 Dave Koz Cruise.

Known for their high-energy shows and captivating original compositions, the Peet Project’s first career milestone was winning the Jazzy Radio Song Contest in 2009. Since 2013, they have performed regularly at major US and local jazz festivals, winning Album of the Year (2013), Album of the Year (2017) and Song of the Year (2020) awards at the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival. In early 2021, they topped the charts in Canada, and they have had four US Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 30 hits so far. They were also featured on Hungary's Got Talent (2015) and a similar contest in 2017 and 2018. They are regular performers at the A38, and their music is well known to local jazz and food festival audiences.

Adam Hawley and the Peet Project first played together in 2021 when Adam invited the band as featured guests on his online show. This collaboration will continue on stage at the A38 with all the magic a live concert can offer, featuring hits from both artists' respective repertoires.
