“Jesse Ahern opened the night with a nearly 35-minute acoustic performance, which is the opposite of what you might expect to see at a punk rock show. However, the Massachusetts-based singer was able to pull off a fun set that those on hand seemed to enjoy. What made things more fun was Ahern’s ability to connect with the audience. He would tell stories about his career and get the crowd involved with quips here and there in between songs. Those on hand responded well as the opener did his job and got the crowd revved up and ready for the rest of the night. ” - Zach Birdsong
“Ahern’s Springsteenian roots rock sound not only sounds right at home in a punk rock club but was particularly well received by a blue collar, working class, pro-union crowd.”
— Jason Stone - Dying Scene
“ Ahern and his Roots Rock Rebel Revue played a galvanizing 45-minute set, almost entirely his original tunes. Ahern's latest record, “Tales From the Middle Class,” available on his website (www.jesseahern.com), is a stripped down, mostly acoustic affair, but in live shows he's now fronting a potent quintet. It is probably his tightest band yet, and it seems he basically adopted a New Bedford band. Ahern previously led the Ramblin' Souls blues-rockers, and one of his tunes had landed on the soundtrack to HBO's “True Blood” series, but his more recent work has been mainly solo or in small combos.”
