Adam Ezra Group


adam ezra group brings on da funk

Bar Harbor — The Adam Ezra group has been compared to the Dave Matthews Band, or to a hipper Dan Fogelberg. They're known for a dynamic acoustic roots/rock sound combining smart well-written lyrics and powerful musicianship. That's not all; they are committed to changing the world with their songs and their actions.

The Boston-area band (with one Mainer) is playing Gates Community Center at College of the Atlantic at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31, yes—Halloween night. It is open to the public at $10 a seat at the
 door. And don't leave your costumes at home!

The Adam Ezra Group recently released the album "View from the Root" combining folk/rock with world beat and funk genres. In 2007, they were rated one of New England's top five mountain bands by Ski Magazine. In the past years, they have shared the stage with the Goo Goo Dolls, Guster, John Mayer, Aerosmith, Dave Matthews Band, Carbon Leaf, The Wailers, Pete Seeger, State Radio (from Dispatch), The Pat McGee Band and more.

Lyricist Adam Ezra writes strong lyrics that often combine the personal with the political—a fact recognized by the United Nations. The group's Web site notes that Ezra has been asked to write a song and perform it at the United Nations headquarters during their International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
