Stan Chang & Adam Bowman
September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
has been practicing scales on the piano since he was 5 years old. From piano recitals in his piano teacher’s living room to playing in churches, Stan received training through the Royal Conservatory of Music as well as Wilfrid Laurier University in the Honours Music Program. Through years of practice and experience, Stan has perfected his musical passion, performing a mix of jazz, classical + pop instrumental favorites at weddings, restaurant venues, lounges, and special functions across southern Ontario.
If you listen closely, you’ll hear him mix original compositions, and maybe even an odd memorable song from your childhood, among well-known classics by Billy Joel, Elton John, Duke Ellington, and The Beatles. So sit back. Savour your meal. Have a few drinks or two, and treat yourself to a dessert. While you’re at it, enjoy the music being performed for you and your guests.
Drummer and percussionist, Adam Bowman, has been a mainstay in both the Canadian and international music scenes for more than two decades.
As a touring musician, Adam has been heard on stages across five continents with artists such as Juno-award winners Kellylee Evans and Carlos Morgan, Canadian independent music trailblazer Ember Swift, improvising guru VINX and country-folk songstress Dawn Langstroth, among many others.
In the studio, Adam has become the drummer of choice for producers and songwriters on a variety of recordings. 2015 saw Juno-nominations for Eccodek’s Singing in Tongues album, and Alysha Brilla’s Womyn album. In 2018, Alysha’s Rooted album received another nod.
Currently, Adam can be heard playing with Elise LeGrow, Alysha Brilla, Jeff Eager and as part of the Nights of Grief and Mystery ensemble featuring Gregory Hoskins and Stephen Jenkinson. Adam also provides percussive and electronic accompaniment for modern and contemporary dance classes with IMAGEO artworks, Dancetheatre David Earle, and Guelph Youth Dance.
As a teacher and facilitator, Adam works with several community organizations including the New Horizons Band for seniors, and the not-for-profit organization Art Not Shame working at the intersection of creative expression and mental wellbeing. He has spearheaded his own FunkBucket program, featuring bucket drumming experiences in high schools, universities, festivals, classes for adults, and other private functions.
