Better Than Ezra, Louisiana’s sensational alternative rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
Better Than Ezra was formed in Baton Rouge in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Kevin Griffin, guitarist Joel Rundell, bassist Tom Drummond, and drummer Cary Bonnecaze. They met while studying at Louisiana State University and they released their debut demo tape shortly after banding together. Over the years, the band’s musical style has spanned the genres roots rock (a subgenre of rock music that takes inspiration from various American musical traditions such as country, blues, and folk), post grunge (a derivative of grunge music that uses the sounds and aesthetics of grunge, but with a more commercially accessible tone), and alternative rock. The band’s been through many line up changes since its formation and it currently consists of Kevin Griffin (vocals and guitar), Tom Drummond (bass guitar), and Michael Jerome (drums). They’ve had a stellar career with released 7 studio albums, 1 live album, 2 compilation albums, 1 video album, 11 music videos, 1 extended play, and 16 singles. Their second album (Deluxe) has been certified Gold in Canada, Platinum in the US, and one of their singles (Good) reached the number 1 spot Billboard’s Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.
