 The main gig I wanted to hit , July 9 was the long awaited CD release party for Adequate’s self titled CD on the Owl Acoustic Lounge’s beautiful new stage in their new Third Avenue location.

As always, Adequate stuck to the funky side of the ’60s and ’70s, but added a few new covers in addition to a handful of their originals.


  Scott Mezei, Keenan Pezderic and Josh Thorlakson were in their element as the audience spilled over onto the Owl’s patio.


 I arrived in time for their second set, which they opened with House of pain’s 1989 classic “Jump Sround” and the audience did just that.


 They trio  had a sound twice as big as they looked. They were all in their element and locked in a groove, especially guitarist  Josh Thorlakson who sung a hot version of Lou Reed’s “Take a Walk on the Wild Side.” “Brick House” was another easily recognizable highlight.


They played “Easy Peazy ” one  of the highlights of the new CD and wound down a hot, sweaty, hyper-energetic set with  “Let’s Get Funky.” another highlight from their CD.
