Adam Sivitz is an American drummer, percussionist, and songwriter from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He first gained notoriety in 1997, when Modern Drummer Magazine reviewed his live performing and studio recordings with folk-rock band, Puppetshow. Modern Drummer called Sivitz "a creative performer who combines a solid feel for groove and rhythm with the imaginative use of varied sound sources." Adam is best known today as the drummer for The Ten Band; a Tribute to Pearl Jam. AXS TV featured The Ten Band on "The World's Greatest Tribute Bands" in November of 2014. Sivitz also plays the drums for Mercury, an accomplished, modern rock band that has released three albums on King Mouse Records. Mercury has shared the stage with acts such as Puddle of Mudd, Seether, Live, Anberlin, Boston, Ace Frehley, Loverboy, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Jefferson Starship. Mercury was also the featured band in promotion of the 2011 NHL Winter Classic.
Adam's resume includes an impressive discography and television appearances in the house band of The It's Alive Show. Sivitz played drums for the band in 2006, when the show set a world record for the largest gathering of zombies in the Guinness Book of Records. His studio discography includes recordings with Mercury, Puppetshow, Paul Tabachneck, and a parody version of Jesus Christ Superstar, known as Phoenix Christ Superstar.
In addition to performing pop and rock music, Sivitz performs contemporary instrumental music on a rare Indonesian instrument, the Bali Steel Pan, or handpan.
