Adam has always been passionate about every endeavor he has partaken in. At the age of 9 a young Adam had aspirations of becoming a professional basketball player, a dream which he continued to work towards up until the age of 17 when he realized he would never grow an inch past 5′. It would not be but a year later that Adam would find his calling in life. It came as a surprise when Adam was pushed into the “dance off” circle at his high school prom. All the kids watched, as Adam stood frozen on the dance floor not knowing what to do in this unavoidable predicament. Suddenly Adam was overcome with emotion and busted a move even MJ would be rolling over in his grave to imitate. It was at this moment while students cheered and teachers quickly moved to the dance floor to see what had just happened Adam knew his purpose in life. He would be the best dancer to hit New York. This dream soon crashed too, after losing in the final round of “So You Think You Can Dance” by performing a poor electric slide and getting boo’d off stage. Adam then decided to just pursue his passion for music in a different manor, becoming a DJ and finding artists with great talents both musically and rhythmically (for those of you who don’t know HB’s quite the Samba dancer). But in all seriousness Adam is a man with an exceptional ability to take a business endeavor and transform it into a success with his degree in Business Administration and 18 years of owning and operating a successful entertainment service in the Capital Region of New York. Adam is the brains behind this whole shindig and without him we would be left fighting over who gets to be pinky.

Ari was born with a rare condition knowing as acapellaitis, singing in perfect key during conception in a Small Rhode Island hospital. The doctors knew the value of his condition and immediately had him airlifted to a nearby hospital that specializes in training babies with this remarkable talent. By the age of 4 Ari was already steadily climbing to the peak of his career having performed national headlining tours under the name “B.W.A.” ( Babies, With Attitude) and was often photographed in newspapers and magazine with musical hit sensation and Miss USA for toddler’s winner Susan Boyle. Ari decided to part ways with Miss Boyle during the often difficult and form-changing teenage years to pursue music management. In 2000 Aristottle met the artist HB Monte at a popular Rhode Island nightclub Socrates and developed a friendship and business relationship that would later come to form S.T.R.E.A.M. Music Group.
Ok so maybe none of that is true but, Ari is a pretty awesome dude that was a prominent figure in the development and success of STREAM Music Group. His dedication to the team and passion for the music business has aided in the success of the organization and continues to ignite growth within the company.

Rebekah is basically the glue that holds S.T.R.E.A.M. Music Group together. Without her we would probably be…Actually we won’t even try and consider what this world would be like without her. She’s an outstanding team member with a record of achievement that makes Hilary Clinton look like a Girl Scout selling cookies outside of a chips Ahoy factory. Bekmysta’s recent projects include working with the WMMO in promotion of a Pat Benatar Concert in Downtown Orlando, FL. She has worked to raise money for the Orlando City Arts Factory organizing a benefit concert featuring local artists. Did I mention she

S.T.R.E.A.M. TEAM rescued Russ from an inflatable raft floating down the Hudson in February of 2008. After having spent 6 years on the raft drifting around the world the S.T.R.E.A.M team decided there would be no better fit for Russ then to manage our Tour Operations.
Russ comes to us with 2 years music industry schooling and 5 years of tour management experience. Born on an Island in New York and raised in a tiny little upstate town Russ fills the S.T.R.E.A.M. teams hillbilly quota and offers a detail-oriented approach to our Touring operations.
