A Babylon Tramp as well as a Rhythm Tramp, Terry was nominated along with his wife Teresa James, for that 2018 Grammy award.

Adam also composes, arranges and conducts for Elton. Adam conducted the Brooklyn Youth Chorus in concert at Madison Square Garden for Elton’s 60th Birthday Concert, and composed and arranged the choral parts for Elton’s single, Home Again. With the whole current Rocketman thing, this is especially fun. Adam’s gonna let us choose a couple of Elton tunes, and will play an original or two. Adam’s also the author of, “S’Mother”, a book about inappropriate letters he received from his mother over the past 30 years. Naughty boy. As if that’s not enough. Please! There’s more.
