Better Than Ezra Performs on the H-E-B Stage


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.”

About Feast with the Beasts

The 2014 Feast with the Beasts event featured 65 of Houston’s hottest restaurants, special animal presentations and feedings, and a live performance by Sugar Ray. Money raised helps support the care and feeding of the over 6,000 animals that call Houston Zoo home. Make sure you subscribe to the Houston Zoo e-mail newsletter for all Feast details.

Launched in the fall of 2006 as a fundraiser for the Houston Zoo, Feast with the Beasts was an instant hit! The Zoo’s naturally wild environment and 6,000 animals offer an unprecedented venue for this wine, beer and food event.

The 2006 event had 33 restaurant participants. The event has grown to feature more than 60 Houston-area restaurants, all serving their best dish, plus a live concert performance.

We’ve had sell-out crowds for the past four years, welcoming over 4,000 guests each year. Tickets sold out weeks in advance. With great restaurants like Taste of Texas, The Melting Pot and more, plus a rockin’ show, Feast with the Beasts is the place to be!
