Eddie Davis/Townsquare Media

Eddie Money, whose blue-collar brand of rock-and-roll has transcended generations, comes back to Atlantic City on Saturday, March 7th for a concert at the Golden Nugget.

Money burst onto the music scene in the 1970s with his double-platinum debut album, Eddie Money, which featured the hits “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Launched into stardom in the early days of MTV, he followed that success with a stream of Top 40 hits including “Think I’m in Love,” “Shakin’,” “Take Me Home Tonight” with Ronnie Spector, and “I Wanna Go Back.”

Born Edward Joseph Mahoney in Brooklyn, NY, he followed in his father’s footsteps and become a New York City police officer. After serving for two years, he put his law enforcement career on hold to pursue music, moving to Berkeley, California, where he began performing at local clubs and was soon mentored by legendary promoter Bill Graham.

He changed his name from Mahoney to Money and fans immediately fell in love with his sound, turning “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise” into smash hits.
