The music at 2019 San Mateo County Fair is going to be “Good” and music lovers will be “Grateful” when Better than Ezra takes the stage.
Alternative rock band Better Than Ezra, one of Billboard’s “100 Greatest Alternative Artists (of All Time” will take the stage on June 13 at the 2019 San Mateo County Fair.
“In addition to being named one of the greatest alternative artists of all time, Better Than Ezra also was also awarded Billboard’s “100 Greatest Alternative Songs of All Time” for their song “Good.” Whether you heard “Good” on the radio once it hit #1 during 1995 or became a fan following Taylor Swift’s famous cover of “Breathless” in 2010, you most likely never forgot that initial introduction to the New Orleans quartet. The quartet was founded by Kevin Griffin [lead vocals, guitar, piano] and Tom Drummond [bass, backing vocals]. Those hummable melodies, unshakable guitar riffs and confessional lyrics quietly cemented the group as an enduring force in rock music. The band also boasts about being the inspiration of a classic Saturday Night Live skit.
All other fair tickets, including carnival wristbands, go on sale on March 11. “We are delighted to add this accomplished band to our impressive concert series,” said Dana Stoehr, chief executive officer of the San Mateo County Event Center and Fair.
