August marks the final two poolside performances at the locals favorite Party by the Pool. Nationally known Better Than Ezra wraps up the season on Thursday, August 14th.  The New Orleans trio helped open the floodgates for countless mainstream alt-pop acts of the late ‘90s by merging rock with melody. Originally formed in 1988 as a roots rock outfit, the group consisted of four college students from Louisiana State University. Their first album Deluxe spawned the radio hit Good, pushing it to Platinum status. The band released Before The Robots in 2005 to the delight of their fans, known as Ezralites.  

When Snydley Whiplash takes the stage to perform it will be a momentous occasion. The Southwest Louisiana natives no longer play together under the band name that made them popular during regular college gigs in Lake Charles. Their performance August 7 will be a reunion of old friends and musical partners. Don't miss what could be a one-time event! 

Party by the Pool also features beer and drink specials served by the Ladies of L'Auberge. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with live entertainment scheduled to begin each Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Party by the Pool ends at 10:30 p.m.
