Biography

Blues Traveler BioThe story of American blues rockers Blues Traveler began back in the year of 1987 as the group of music aficionados decided to join forces and express their love of jamming.

From the very get-go, the band’s musical expression was deeply rooted in jamming and live improvisation. Led by harmonica player, vocalist and guitarist John Popper, the group blends in styles such as rock, blues, and psychedelic rock with an overall jam-fueled approach.

The band’s lineup currently features  frontman John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, Brendan Hill behind the drum kit, Tad Kinchla on bass, and Ben Wilson on keyboards.

Blues Traveler’s eponymous debut album saw the light of day in May 1990, presenting the crowd with a distinctive combo of a vast array of genres that had only one purpose to serve – to present the listener with the fragment of the group’s live energy.

Since the early ’90, Blues Traveler became one of the leading forces in the re-establishment of jam rock, a style that had been massively forgotten during the late ’80s. The boys brought back the craft forged by such titans as the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band, delivering sheer energy, power, improvisation and unpredictability to the yearning crowds.

The band’s second album, “Travelers & Thieves,” was released in 1991, only to be followed by “Save His Soul” in 1993. Each of the band’s first three efforts scored a Gold sales certificate, with “Save His Soul” entering the Top 100 on the US Billboard chart.

But the big time was yet to come with 1994’s game-changing studio effort No. 4, appropriately titled “Four.” Led by hit singles “Run-Around” and “Hook,” the album became a huge success in the States and went on to sell over 6 million units in the US alone, and earn the group their only album in the Top 10 so far.

Additionally, “Run-Around” won the prestigious  Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a duo or group in 1996.

After a period of extensive touring, the group released “Straight On till Morning” in 1997, once again crossing the one-million sales figure in the US.

But in 1999, tragedy struck as bassist Bobby Sheehan died of an accidental drug overdose, leaving the band devastated. Along with issues caused by Popper’s obesity, the group entered a rough patch and was ultimately dropped by their label A&M Records.

But thankfully, they recuperated. Although album sales were never the same, the band’s popularity and fanbase remained the same, cemented by their top-notch live shows that still remain the focal point of Blues Traveler and probably always will.

To this date, the band has released a total of 12 studio albums. Their latest effort, “Blow Up the Moon,” saw its release in April 2015 via Loud & Proud Records.

Blues Traveler concerts are a thing of legend for hardcore fans of jam bands. If you ever get a chance to see them in your region, we wholeheartedly advise you to buy Blues Traveler tickets online ASAP, it will probably be the event of the season in your book.
