  • James and Some Names (Performing as a four piece or trio, this group has rotating members for maximum flexibility and is a great party band for clubs and private events.)
  • Adkins/Gallagher Duo Experience  (A new project for Tanya Gallagher and James Adkins... Building from their long time musical partnership this band will primarily be James and Tanya performing their originals with other amazingly talented artists)
  • Big Virginia Sky                                                    (Folk/Bluegrass/Americana style band that performs a mixture of originals and covers... This group is perfect for weddings and large corporate shows.)

James Adkins is a traveling Singer/Songwriter/Entertainer.  Although he was born in Fredericksburg Virginia, James spent many of his formative years traveling around with his family.  At age six James' father began teaching him how to play guitar.  Thus started a lifelong passion for guitar, entertaining, and exploring the world around us with music.  After High School, James studied Jazz at the University of West Florida while playing Folk and Pop shows at the local clubs and coffee houses.  All of the influences that James was brought up with (including Folk, Pop, Jazz, Gospel, Old Time, and Bluegrass) have come together to form his own personal musical style.  James is currently based out of Northwest Ohio, but tours constantly sharing his music with others.
