CONCERT BY BETTER THAN EZRA
FEATURING MARK MCGRATH
This summer, Mark McGrath will be touring with the I Love the 90’s tour as well as a robust schedule of live Sugar Ray dates and looks forward to seeing everyone out on the road. In past summers Mark created, branded and toured on the Under the Sun Tour, which showcases the most iconic hits and artists of the 90’s.
“This is my life’s work,” he notes “and I’m honored that these songs I wrote have such a connection and meaning to people. No need to ask me how long I’ll be doing this, I can’t imagine a life without performing these songs, and thankfully they seem to have a timeless quality.”
Josh Martin, a singer songwriter from Baton Rouge, grew up in a home that listened to a broad range of musical genres. This shaped his craft and he discovered his own voice as a singer and guitar player. Martin is currently embarking on his debut record, still untitled. Through his music he aspires to empathize, inspire, give a little hope, but through it all have a good time!
Josh will be performing at the “FUNraiser” Concert.
