Bio

From adamisgittmusic.com...

Adam Isgitt hales from Charleston, SC and lives now in Orlando, Florida with his wife, Michelle. As the son of a gigging bass player, he seemed predestined to perform onstage one day. Adam can still remember going to his dad’s gigs as a child and falling asleep behind his amplifier.

He showed his first interest in making music himself in elementary school. He became involved with his school’s wind band in sixth grade where he took up the trumpet. A couple years later he switched to the euphonium. He played baritone horn in marching band in high school, along with trumpet in jazz band and tenor drum in his school’s steel drum band—the only one in the state at the time. He continued his playing in the jazz, wind ensembles and marching bands at Charleston Southern University, and a year later, at the University of South Carolina.

Adam received his first guitar in June, 1995 when his father gave it to him a present for his high school graduation. Having played other wind instruments in school, and already being able to read music, he taught himself to play guitar. He practiced almost every day and that summer played his first song in public with his father’s band, Gunz. It was the acoustic guitar-driven song, Tequila Sunrise by the Eagles. His first vocal performance while playing his guitar came at a Christmas party that same year. He played and sang The Dance by Garth Brooks with Dad playing along on bass. Adam has said that ovation is what hooked him on performing on stage.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a degree in Media Arts/Audio and Music minor, he moved back to Charleston from Columbia and then started gigging regularly in 2001. At his busiest, he was doing 5-6 shows a week and eventually took it down to 4 shows a week—to spare his sanity—all the while, working his full-time day job!

In November 2002, on a Tuesday, he and his bass-playing father were asked to put a band together for a gig that weekend. Dad knew a drummer and the drummer knew a lead guitarist. With no time to meet, compare song lists, or even say “nice to meet you” before the gig, the foursome played their first note together at 9:00 that Friday night. Hodgepodge was born. A high-energy, crowd-pleasing band they were. What began as a one-weekend-only show turned into a regular occurrence on the Charleston party-band and private event scene. The band stayed together, as its original lineup, until Adam moved to Orlando in October, 2007. The Hodgepodge gigs, his solo shows, and the short-lived acoustic duo with his band’s lead guitar player called Waiting for April, all kept Adam very occupied.

Along with his gigging in and around Orlando, he is very involved with his church’s praise band. He has manned the mixing desk from time to time and plays guitar in the group.

In February, 2009, he entered a contest on WMMO 98.9 FM/Cox Radio Orlando to sing the national anthem before a show in their popular Downtown Concert Series. At the request of family, he recorded himself singing the song acapella and emailed it in to the radio station. His submission was voted on by the listeners and was chosen as the winner by the station staff from the top three vote recipients. On a brisk February 7th evening, Adam sang The Star Spangled Banner in front of a couple thousand on the stage that was later taken by America, one of his favorite bands.

Another of his interests is recording. With his modest recording studio, he records his own demo material and other special projects. He’s recorded, mixed and mastered projects for his church, accompaniment material for friends and most notably, for the University of Central Florida Athletic Department.

Adam truly enjoys entertaining. His ultimate goal is to make sure his audience has a good time.
