They’re AMISH and They’re OUTLAWS Part II

By Yemi Sekoni


ast month we introduced you to the cover band, The Amish Outlaws; known for their Amish origins, and their onstage antics while bringing the house down. Welcome to part two. We pick up where we left off, as bass guitarist, Eazy Ezekiel – the group’s spokesperson – shares their biggest surprise so far. TS: “What has been your biggest surprise, thus far?” Ezekiel: “The ending of ‘The Sixth Sense.’ A lot of people saw it coming, but I sure didn’t. As far as the band is concerned, I’d have to say back in early September we were playing at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and I was having a burger. I always turn my phone to silent in a restaurant, and when I left I looked at it and had a few missed calls and several text messages waiting. Ken Singleton and David Cone, baseball announcers for the Yankees, had talked about us for about 30 seconds just randomly during a Yankees vs. Red Sox game on the YES Network and how great they thought the band was. We’ve received some really cool press throughout the years, but this was the first time we had been mentioned in a major media forum without it really being ‘press,’ so to speak. We just came up in conversation as some cultural thing. That was a big surprise, and honor!”
