Better Than Ezra – Still Touring After 24 Years

The New Orleans-based rock band Better Than Ezra first debuted with their 1995 single “Good” on their album Deluxe and 24 years, the band is still touring and putting on their signature high-energy rock shows. Their latest shows have been described as a “soundtrack of the 90s” and has had longtime followers of Better Than Ezra hopping around like they were twenty again.

The band is still hard at work in the studio as well working on their latest album as a follow up to 2019’s Paper Empire. They aren’t giving out many details on the project, but they are debuting some of their latest studio material throughout their latest tour.

In addition to touring and working on their 8th album, they have announced that the band will once again host the third annual Krewe of Rocckus during Mardi Gras in their home town of New Orleans. The event will take place February 7-9th and will feature several bands including Treme Brass Band, Emerson Hart of Tonic, Sister Hazel and Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The event is aimed at first time Mardi Gras visitors. The event is the culmination and fulfillment of an idea the band has had for 10 years.

Better Than Ezra formed in 1988 with vocalist and guitarist Kevin Griffin, Joel Rundell, the lead guitarist, bassist Tom Drummond and drummer Cary Bonnecaze. Throughout the 90’s they played at house parties and fraternity shows throughout the South. It wasn’t until 1995 that the band was signed by Elektra Records and their single “Good” made it to the number one spot on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart in just seven weeks.  The band released five albums after Deluxe, but no other record has had the same level of success as the 1993 Deluxe album.

Twenty-four years later, the band is a trio consisting of Kevin Griffin, Tom Drummond and Michael Jerome, who joined in 2009.  To see the latest tour dates of Better Than Ezra and to purchase tickets online, check out for details and information.
