The stage is set, tickets are being sold and the spotlight is starting to shine. Preparations are being made for this year’s Adrian Spring Concert which will be taking place March 19, 2016, at 7 PM, in the Merillat sport & fitness center. This year, Adrian College is featuring three talented acts that will surely bring the house down. Opening the night we have one of our fellow Bulldogs, Ryan “Hitman” Betz. As a talented and upcoming rapper, Betz will be performing some of his hit songs and introducing us to the special night ahead. Our two main featured artists of the night are Sammy Adams and the duet of Nico and Vinz.
Born August 14, this 28-year-old is bringing his own individual style of music to Adrian College. Samuel Adams Wisher started playing the piano and exploring music at the age of 7. It was not until his college years, did Sammy begin writing his own music and recording it on his own PC. After his remix “I hate college”, went viral on YouTube, Adams finally produced his first album “Boston’s Boy” on March 4, 2010. His album went #73 on the Billboard 200 and quickly climbed to #1 on iTunes top album charts. With his stints of success, Adams changed record labels and finally landed his first radio mainstream single, “Only One” in the year 2012. Now a mainstream artist, Adams is taking his music to a whole new level by combining with different artists in hopes of finally producing the albums he has always dreamed of.
