Better Than Ezra 2014 Tour Schedule

The alternative pop group Better Than Ezra emerged in the late '80s and paved the way for bands like Goo Goo Dolls, Semisonic, Matchbox Twenty, and Third Eye Blind. Their roots rock sound has been a favorite among generations for decades, giving us hit songs like "Normal Town", "Extra Ordinary", and "Desperately Wanting".

Better Than Ezra Background

Better Than Ezra was formed at Louisiana State University in 1988 when four students, Kevin Griffin, Joel Rundell, Tom Drummond, and Cary Bonnecaze decided to start playing together. The band honed their performing skills at fraternity parties and college bars, and finally landed their first big public debut at Murphy's in Baton Rouge. Later that year, they released their first demo cassette tape, Chimes Street Demo. It was highly sought after by their fans, despite the fact that it was not an actual album release. In 1990, the band released a cassette-only album titled Surprise, shortly before Rundell, the band's lead guitarist, committed suicide. The band took a break from performing and recording songs after Rundell's death, but decided to honor his memory by getting back together as a trio late in 1990.

Better Than Ezra decided to release its first album, Deluxe, on its very own indie label called Swell Records in 1993. This record met with great critical praise and caught the attention of many people in the music industry. Less than two years later, Elektra Records signed Better Than Ezra, who re-released Deluxe under their new record label. The album's hit single, "Good", reached the number one spot on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart, and the album achieved platinum status by the end of the year. From then on, Better Than Ezra experienced widespread success, touring around the world with their smash hits. They have long been revered as one of the most influential alt-pop bands of the early '90s, and their smash hits are still relevant today. The current lineup of Better Than Ezra consists of Kevin Griffin, Tom Drummond, and Michael Jerome, and this talented trio is ready to bring you the best of Better Than Ezra at one of their upcoming shows! Secure your ticket to see Better Than Ezra perform live by heading to StubHub right away!

Better Than Ezra has massive fan bases all over the world, with their most devoted fans primarily in the US, the UK, and Canada. Their most successful album ever, Deluxe, went platinum in the US and gold in Canada, and peaked at number three on the US Heat chart.

Trivia

The origins of Better Than Ezra's name is ambiguous, but one of the theories is that it comes from Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast", which contains the quote, "…no worse than other noises, certainly better than Ezra learning to play the bassoon."
