Get ready for something DIFFERENT!

The Adrian West Band presents a show that moves minds and hips alike with live music, thought-provoking science and cool visuals. This unique event combines the band's dynamic songs with SYNCRHONIZED VIDEOS and a MULTIMEDIA SCIENCE PRESENTATION on “How Life Began on Earth.” Think of it as a TED Talk with live music & cool videos. Watch a short VIDEO TRAILER at

On Weds. Feb. 28th the Adrian West Band will perform worldly, driving, original music (plus a couple covers). We'll have Adrian on vocals, guitars, electric violin and live looping, Scott Keller on drums, Kevin Goldberg on bass.

But this time we're going to add a couple twists: SCIENCE and LIVE VIDEOS.

SCIENCE: How did life begin on Earth? It seems like an important subject, with huge philosophical implications, but we don't talk about it much. In between a few songs, with the help of videos and slides, Adrian will share the latest science on this subject and what it might means on a philosophical level. Don't worry, he'll keep it light. It is, after all, a night out on the town!

LIVE VIDEOS! We're going to project videos made for our songs and play in sync with them. It'll be like watching MTV but with a live band!

It's going be super fun and interesting! Please save the date and invite your friends. You can listen to our music at

Here's what people are saying about the show:

"Adrian's musical performance juxtaposed with an exploration of science is original, thought provoking, super interesting, and really fun. Very edu-taining!"
-- Steve Budd (, professional actor whose
one-man show 'What They Said About Love' recently won
the Best Of Fringe award at the SF Fringe Festival

"Uniquely creative, very funny and beautifully arranged. I really like his musical sensibility."

"The beauty of music combined with the power of science created something very unique & special. I loved the show!"
-- Katarzyna (Kate) Piatek, attended April 2017 show

"Adrian's show will leave you with both melodies and questions swirling in your head. The blurred lines between the living and the purely chemical, and between art and science somehow left me feeling intellectually balanced while delightfully, philosophically off-kilter."
-- Dr. Joe Hickey, PhD, Professor of Chemistry at Diablo Valley College

"Very thought-provoking and entertaining."
-- Ira Marlowe, singer/songwriter and teacher of songwriting at
UC Berkeley

"Great tunes and mind-expanding science."
