Adam Ezra Group · 8:30pm
It’s difficult to impart the roots-steeped, road-trippin' essence of the Adam Ezra Group into a single word, but frontman Adam Ezra nonetheless keeps one in mind as something of a mantra: community. Community is epitomized by a belief that has long doubled as a mission statement for the group: namely, that making music together is itself a form of grassroots organizing, capable of nothing less than changing the world.
A tireless touring outfit, the Adam Ezra Group is constantly on the road, often devoting their time to local charities and always going out of their way to connect with fans. They are creating a powerful, inclusive community around AEG shows that is beginning to be compared to a social-movement as much as a traditional music fan-base.
Ezra started his own non-profit organization called RallySound to better support fans and activists dedicated to making the world a better place. The proceeds from the video for the single “Let Your Hair Down” are being donated toward micro-grants for cancer patients struggling to make ends meet while in treatment. The Adam Ezra Group hosts a free festival each year called The Ramble. Last year over 3,000 people came out and together they raised enough money to help 25 veteran heroes off the streets and into safe and dignified housing.
Adam's grassroots efforts recently caught the eye of John Oates, of Hall & Oates fame. For the past few years, Ezra and Oates have been regular writing partners, meeting up in Nashville between tours. Oates also recently had Adam join him on a solo tour throughout the east coast and Midwest. In addition, Adam has also recently shared the stage with Train, Melissa Etheridge, ZZ Top, Graham Parker, Southside Johnny, America, and many more.
Lisa Bouchelle · 8:30pm
Lisa Bouchelle is one of those rare artists who can make you laugh out loud one moment, as on her light-hearted duet with John Popper, “Only The Tequila Talkin’,” and have you in tears the next, such as on her moving ballad “Where You Are,” about losing her mother to alcoholism at a young age. She’s been compared to artists such as Jason Mraz and Sheryl Crow, but with nods to classic artists such as Tom Petty and Neil Young.
