About Jade Road

Jade Road is an original instrumental band based out of Phoenix, Arizona, whose music defies easy categorization. Take one part jazz, add a few parts funk and fusion, stir in some rock, sprinkle in a bit of improv & jam and you'll get close to the flavors of Jade Road. This is a new collective of musicians who have come together from a diversity of regional and musical backgrounds to create a blend of music that speaks to your mind as well as your hips. This up and coming band released their first album, Ambidextrous, on June 1, 2020, which was recently featured on the Worlds Collide radio show on 99.1FM Downtown Radio in Tucson.

New quote

I highly recommend checking them out. I can't wait for live music to start up again-- because I definitely would like to see these guys live.”

— Max Webster, DJ: When Worlds Collide, Downtown Radio Tucson 99.1 FM

The Band

Dave Adkins

Drums

Dave was born in Tempe, Arizona, and currently resides in Mesa with his wife and daughter.  He started playing drums at the tender age of 2.  His older brother introduced him to such musical influences as Buddy Rich, Alex Van Halen, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, and many others.  Dave has been studying rudimental drumming and hand/concert percussion for many years.  He has incorporated these techniques into his unique style in the studio and live performance in many bands and ensembles.  His drumming in Jade Road is precise and the band has taken to calling him "One Take Dave" in the studio because of his remarkable abilities.
