Adam Ezra Group with Special Guest Lisa Bouchelle at the Hopewell Theater
Apr 22, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Working outside the confines of the traditional music industry, Adam Ezra and his bandmates – Corinna Smith (fiddle), Alex Martin (drums), Poche Ponce (bass) – built a community of fans through sheer grit and determination, regularly performing hundreds of shows a year for the past two decades without any major label or mainstream radio support.
Fusing folk intimacy and rock energy with soul power and pop charm, the band first emerged from Boston in the early 2000s and quickly garnered widespread acclaim for their bold, insightful songwriting and interactive, euphoric performances.
From hole in the wall bars and house concerts to sold-out headline shows and dates with the likes of Little Big Town, The Wallflowers, Gavin DeGraw, Train, and The Wailers, Ezra and his bandmates treated every single gig like their last, attracting a die-hard following that believed not just in the music, but in their commitment to activism and social change, as well.
Adam Ezra Group will be opened by special guest Lisa Bouchelle!
All staff, patrons, and talent are required to wear a mask inside the theater. As of 2022, all staff, patrons, and talent must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test. Please see our Health and Safety page for more information.

Talk to any Adam Ezra Group fan around the country and they’ll tell you that each performance is a one-of-a-kind, community-driven experience, propelled by the spirit of the people in front of the stage. For both fans and band members alike, an AEG concert is a rally to live life with intensity and soak in the moments we share with one another.
After their tour was cancelled at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ezra brought the show online to continue this commitment and created The Gathering Series which to-date has reached a cumulative audience of 15 million viewers. In addition, they brought The Gathering Series to the real world as they performed over 100 safe, socially distanced shows in parks and backyards around the USA. The Adam Ezra Group hit their 500th Live stream show on July 25th, 2021, and although they don’t live-stream nightly anymore, they do still live-stream to the fans at least two times a week. AEG has also started to tour heavily again in traditional and outdoor venues.
As if this wasn’t enough to keep them busy, the band also embarked on an ambitious new recording series dubbed ‘The Album Project’ which will see the band releasing at least 19 new singles over the next few years. What comes next for the Adam Ezra Group? The future is anyone’s guess right now, and the only thing the Adam Ezra Group knows for sure, is they’ll be out there making music however and whenever they can.
Lisa Bouchelle has a sound all her own, as one can hear on her new album, Jump In! You might call her “Alt-Americana,” for her acoustic-based, Americana music with an edge. But the music she writes unapologetically encompasses a wide variety of genres, including Americana, pop, singer-songwriter, gospel, classic rock, and more. The songs are all based around her unique acoustic guitar grooves, and her lyrics are often about empowerment and believing in oneself, and one’s dreams; about not being afraid to take chances in life; to overcome your fears, to go for it, and “Jump In!”
Lisa has dueted in concert with Jon Bon Jovi, sung backup for Bruce Springsteen, and appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions. She also is the host and creator of the TV show Rock Star Kitchen, which airs twice weekly on The Comcast Network in the mid-Atlantic region.
