About the Event
The Grateful Dead proved groups didn't need endless hits to sustain a lengthy career. Like the Dead, Blues Traveler cultivated an audience playing a timeless brand of Rock that featured extended jams. They were a throwback to an earlier, less slick, mode of operation. While churning out chart toppers wasn't a major priority, no one complained when "Run-Around," from their fourth album became a mega-hit. That happened in '95.
Blues Traveler formed in New York seven years earlier with John Popper (vocals/harmonica), Chan Kinchla (guitar), Bobby Sheehan (bass) and Brendan Hill (drums).
