“Barstool Confessional” Album Out Now!

The Poor Man’s Opera describes themselves as “A good ol’ bar band that plays some great ol’ tunes.” That fact is evident in their latest music video “The Last Thing On My Mind.”  It was recorded during a live backyard performance in Leonia, NJ on 9/26/2020.  The video’s black and white look blends well with the tune’s western-sounding feel.  “The Last Thing On My Mind” can be found on the album “Barstool Confessional.”  You can score the 13-track release now on  It is available for unlimited streaming, mp3 download, or on a physical CD.

The Poor Man’s Opera is fronted by Mark Moran on vocals and guitar.  He is joined by Andy Reidel on guitar and vocals, Rick Wagner on bass and vocals, and Andrei Koribanics on drums.

Both the video and the song “The Last Thing On My Mind” were written and produced by Mark Moran.  When he is not writing and recording music, Mark Moran  collects and publishes “New Jersey’s local legends and best kept secrets” with his partner Mark Sceurman in Weird NJ.  The publication has turned people on to the bizarre history and folklore of the Garden State since 1989, spawning a book series and television program on The History Channel.  If you’ve never gone through a copy of Weird NJ, late October is probably the perfect time to start.  Check it out at!
