We are thrilled to have Matt Nathanson and JT Hodges join us for our 12th Annual Ezra Open Benefit Concert at House of Blues New Orleans!

 Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson, known for his songs “Come On Get Higher,” “Car Crash,” “Falling Apart” and “All We Are,” has been a continuing presence on the airwaves in recent years. His latest album, Last Of The Great Pretenders, which debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard Top 200,  brings great intimacy and immediacy in songs like “Mission Bells” and “Last Days Of Summer In San Francisco” along with fan favorite and latest single “Kinks Shirt.”

 JT Hodges, who also joins the music-filled event, is a Show Dog-Universal Music artist and has toured with Eric Church, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert and the Eli Young Band. He has had top 40 success with “Goodbyes Made You Mine,” “Hunt You Down” and “Sleepy Little Town,” and recently made his acting debut as a lead role in Hallmarks “Finding Christmas” this past year. His new single and album are due out in 2014.

 We will also be hosting a VIP Casino Night Patron Party prior to the show in the Foundation Room. The Casino Night Patron Party will feature casino game favorites, a ticket to the benefit concert, premium food and open bar, complimentary photo with Better Than Ezra as well as a raffle and silent auction.

Tickets are On Sale NOW and you can Purchase Tickets Here!
