Mississippi River At Alton, Illinois

Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater........ Better Than Ezra

 

Saturday, August 05, 2017
Gates open at 7:00pm | Starts at 7:00pm

 

105.7 welcomes Better Than Ezra LIVE to the Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater on Saturday, August 5, 2017 with special guest TBA! Before their omnipresent 1995 single “Good” hit No. 1, before their debut album Deluxe went double-platinum, before popular shows such as Desperate Housewives licensed their song “Juicy,” before Taylor Swift attested to their timeless appeal by covering their track “Breathless” — New Orleans’ Better Than Ezra was a pop-rock act paying its dues, traveling from town to town in a ramshackle van. Over two decades after the band formed, that vigilance still resonates strongly with the trio, who were finally rewarded after seven years of stubbornly chasing their dreams. “This band,” notes bassist Tom Drummond, “has never been handed anything.”

Admission
$25 - $50

It is created and inspired by a partnership of organizations with a common goal – to deepen the connection of our communities to the river that connects us to each other.

 

The Big Muddy Speaker Series is a free monthly series of presentations on. There are now three separate series, in Kansas City, Rocheport and St. Charles.
