Spotlight: Local Reno Music The Schall Adams Band

Moving Guitars

The Schall Adams band is a rockin’ blues powerhouse band, one you should take notice of. They recently won the International Blues Challenge qualifying competition at Great Basin Brewery, in Sparks, NV, and are Memphis bound early next year for the International Blues Challenge. The International Blues Challenge, which helps advance the careers of up and coming blues artists, will be held February 29, 2013 in the Beale Street Entertainment District. The Schall Adams Band will have the chance to win cash prizes and industry-wide recognition.

I first met Schall Adams at an eWomenNetwork event. We exchanged business cards, mine as a local author, hers a local singer heading up a blues band. I quickly Facebook “friended” Schall and learned that she, too, is a local author.  I clicked on her video link and was completely blown away by her voice.

That voice! Smoky, gravelly, and soulful. Her voice naturally lends itself to the Blues genre. The other band members are just as talented: Tony Ghiglieri (lead guitar and vocals), Frankin Spicer (keyboards), Brad Robson (bass and vocals), and Chris Houghton (drums and vocals). I personally the know youngster of the group, Chris Houghton, and Franklin Spicer. Chris, I’ve known since he was a wee baby. His parents are terrific people, who raised Chris with real core family values. He displayed his talent for drums and other musical instruments early on in life, and we just knew he had natural born talent. I’ve come to know Franklin Spicer recently through business dealings. Not only is he a talented keyboardist, but he is a talented webmaster.

The Schall Adams band is a great local talent and one you should not miss if visiting Reno, NV, or if you are already a resident of our lovely city.
