Adam Ezra Group at MPAC in Morristown, NJ.

Saturday night, at the Mayo Performance Arts Center in Morristown, New Jersey, Maggie and I went to see Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. What we didn’t expect was an opening act and how good the Adam Ezra Group would be.

I mean, wow.

The Adam Ezra Group, out of Boston, Massachusetts, blew me away. With its soulful, folkish rock sounds to its Celtic vibes, to even its strong country music feel, frontman Adam Ezra commanded the stage, with an undeniable presence and powerfully pleasant singing voice, not to mention his ultra talented band backing him up all the way. 

To make matters even more entertaining, Ezra told interesting stories while the expletives flew out of his unforgiving mouth. Check out the song The Devil Came Up to Boston

AEG’s music inspired me so much, that I purchased a CD (Hurricane Wind (5/2017) as well as a trucker baseball cap, and we even had the opportunity to meet him.

The fact that Ezra said you can pay whatever you can afford, just place your money into its “LoveBox,” made me want to support the group even more, and motivated me to scribe this wonderful write-up.  

He said music is meant to be heard. Therefore, I spent a few hours looking up more of the band’s tunes. 

Do yourself a favor, and look up AEG on YouTube, especially the song “Steal Your Daughter,” with an awesome fiddle solo. Plus, you can view more of AEG’s music at this link.

Don’t forget to buy a CD ot two on AEG’s website. Yes, CDs, you do remember them, right? 

Anyway, if liking the band for its awesome music alone wasn’t enough, Ezra has a strong social conscience, made evident by the work he performs with RallySound, whose mission is to empower communities through music.
