Adam and Katei joined together for The Queensland Tourism Awards at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Bank, performing a rock version of Vivaldi’s Summer.

Adam has extensive orchestral, solo and chamber music experience and was a member of the Queensland Youth Orchestras for over ten years. He participated in several AYO National Music Camps and was a participant in the Australian International Orchestral Studies Institute in Hobart in 2007.  Adam has performed and recorded a wide range of musical styles in and around Brisbane in various different groups including Zhivago String Quartet, Speed of Purple, Kate Miller-Heidke, Dick Desert and the Shotgun Country Club, Darren Hanlon and James Cruickshank of the Cruel Sea. He recently toured Australia with the Cat Empire culminating with a headlining performance at the Byron Bay East Coast Blues and Roots Festival 2008. Adam has also performed at the Bulimba Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and ReStrung New Music Festival amongst others.  During his years with LiveMUSIC Adam has been in high demand as a solo classical performer and a roaming jazz violinist along with his many hours of work with Well Strung Strings and Bentley Strings.

Emigrating from Japan to Australia with his family, Katei grew up calling Brisbane home playing the violin since the age of five. Katei’s unique style and flare set him apart from other artists and ultimately landed him an opportunity with a major record label, Victor Entertainment Japan.  In November 2009, Katei released his debut album “Journey” and has since been performing all over Japan alongside many major artists.  Since the earthquake and Tsunami that devastated Japan early this year, Katei has performed at a number of charitable events both in Japan and Australia in hope of raising the spirits of those struggling with the devastation and providing support for the massive relief effort underway. During 2011 he has performed at the Buddha Birthday Festival 2011, charity performances for Loving Care Group Charity Dinner, Brisbane International City Church, Vietnamese Moon Festival, RSPCA’s Playing for Paws and the Butterfly Ball.  He also appeared with Adam Cadell as featured artists at the Queensland Tourism Awards held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane.
