An Evening of Music & Science

January 24, 2018
7:30 pm
Shelton Theater

Get ready for something DIFFERENT!

The Adrian West Band presents a show that moves minds and hips alike with driving music, thought-provoking science and cool visuals. This innovative event will combine the band's driving music plus “LIVE VIDEOS” and a MULTIMEDIA SCIENCE PRESENTATION on “How Life Began on Earth.”  

The band will perform worldly, driving, original music (plus a couple covers). But we're going to add a couple twists: SCIENCE and LIVE VIDEOS.

SCIENCE: How did life begin on Earth? It seems like an important subject, with huge philosophical implications, but we don't talk about it much. In between a few songs, with the help of videos and slides, Adrian will share the latest science on this subject and what it might means on a philosophical level. Don't worry, he'll keep it light. It is, after all, a Saturday night!

LIVE VIDEOS! We're going to project videos made for our songs and play in sync with them. It'll be like watching MTV but with a live band!

It's going be super fun and interesting! Please visit to find show dates and to listen to sample music.

Here's what people are saying about the show:

"Adrian's musical performance juxtaposed with an exploration of science is original, thought provoking, super interesting, and really fun. Very edu-taining!"  

-- Steve Budd (, professional actor whose

one-man show 'What They Said About Love' recently won

the Best Of Fringe award at the SF Fringe Festival

"Uniquely creative, very funny and beautifully arranged. I really like his musical sensibility."

-- Catherine Lengronne, attended April 2017 show

"The beauty of music combined with the power of science created something very unique & special. I loved the show!"

-- Katarzyna (Kate) Piatek, attended April 2017 show

"Very thought-provoking and entertaining."

-- Ira Marlowe, singer/songwriter and teacher of songwriting at UC Berkeley

"Adrian's show will leave you with both melodies and questions swirling in your head. The blurred lines between the living and the purely chemical, and between art and science somehow left me feeling intellectually balanced while delightfully, philosophically off-kilter."

-- Dr. Joe Hickey, PhD, Professor of Chemistry at Diablo Valley College

"Great tunes and mind-expanding science."

-- Peter Conolly, singer/songwriter, attended April 2017 show
