Better Than Ezra will be performing on stage at the Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa on Thursday, March 31, 2022, at 8 p.m.

Those hummable melodies, unshakable guitar riffs, and confessional lyrics quietly cemented Better Than Ezra as an enduring force in rock music. How many acts can boast being the inspiration of a classic Saturday Night Live skit? Very few.

Speaking of incredible accomplishments, the band occupies rarified air with spots on Billboard’s “100 Greatest Alternative Songs of All Time” and “100 Greatest Alternative Artists of All Time” as of 2018. Maintaining a steady pace forward, the single “GRATEFUL” garnered acclaim from Billboard who praised its “highly commercial, anthemic sheen that certainly pairs nicely with the approach of Deluxe.”

A fixture on radio and MTV, “Good” captured #1 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart and went multi-platinum. 1996’s Friction, Baby yielded definitive anthems such as “Desperately Wanting” and “King Of New Orleans.” A string of fan favorite albums followed, including How Does Your Garden Grow? [1998] and Closer [2001]. 2005’s Before The Robots represented another creative high. Its lead single “A Lifetime” peaked in the Top 15 of the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart as “Juicy” went on to famously soundtrack a Desperate Housewives campaign. Paper Empire followed in 2009 and then the band released All Together Now in 2014. Produced by Tony Hoffer [M83, Beck,] it spawned the hit “Crazy Lucky,” which notched 10 million-plus streams.

A force of nature on stage, the group consistently deliver on tour as countless fans sing along to every word nightly. Their gigs further uphold a growing legend.
