Blues Traveler Background

Blues Traveler's road to success jumped from the burbs of Jersey with a high school garage band to the Big Apple in the late '80s. It all started when John Popper, harmonicist, guitarist and vocalist, founded a group with Brendan Hill (drummer) called The Establishment. Hill's brother joined them on their musical quest, playing bass, along with a rotating lineup of guitarists. The band cut some cassette tape demos, which included their own material as well as covers of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "Gloria." Chan Kinchia signed on to the band. Kinchia was not only a guitarist but a promising athlete who played football. Because of a knee injury, he decided to dedicate himself to music instead. At this time they were renamed the Blues Band. Popper eventually became friends with Bobby Sheehan, who became the new bass player in 1987.

After graduating from high school and relocating to New York City, Hill, Popper and Sheehan signed up for the music program at The New School while Kinchia studied at NY University. After an encouraging nudge from founding Mudhoney member, David Gonzales, the band, now called Blues Traveler, eclipsed the New York jam-band scene and shared bills with groups like Phish and the Spin Doctors.

Represented early on by Bill Graham and son, David, Blues Traveler's live reputation landed them a deal with A&M Records; their 1990 eponymous album debut eventually claiming gold status at the same time as the album four. While churning out a string of popular albums in the '90s, the band endured its share of adversity and tragedy but forever remaining true to its name, the band traveled on.

Blues Traveler's signature sound was energizing supporters around the globe, to the tune of about 30 million people and upwards of 6,000 live performances over the bands 25-year-history. Beyond the commercial achievements of their recordings, which have sold in excess of 13 million combined units worldwide, Blues Traveler has long been recognized for the extensive uses of segues, multiple song mash-ups and lengthy instrumental jams in their live shows. And now your chance to experience Blues Traveler for yourself is here! Grab some friends and some tickets for a Blues Traveler concert right here on StubHub today! Act now before tickets are gone!

Blues Traveler Trivia

During the time of humble beginnings, Blues Traveler held their jam sessions in a basement. They billed it The Black Cat Jam, inspired by a black cat that happened to be in the area. They took it as a sign and embraced the Black Cat as their mascot. And, if you ever wondered how they got their name, the bandmates borrowed part of it from the main demon in the movie, Ghostbusters - Gozer the Traveler.

Still hungry for some more Blues Traveler trivia? Blues Traveler covered "Secret Agent Man," originally done by Johnny Rivers, for the flick Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. They also did Bob Seger's "Get Out of Denver" for Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. And, they covered "I'm Walkin'" - the catchy Fat Domino's tune - for Rebel Highway: Cool and the Crazy. Additionally, multiple Blues Traveler tunes have been included on other film soundtracks like Very Bad Things, White Man's Burden, The Last Seduction, Speed and The Truth About Cats & Dogs. They even made an appearance in the film, Blues Brothers 2000.


Blues Traveler Concert Experience

Blues Traveler has kept up a remarkable touring pace of 250 shows annually, whether there has been a new release attached to the bill or not. They started 2012 with an exuberantly exhaustive reflection on a quarter century since they first collaborated in a Princeton basement and set the groundwork for a hybrid vibe that draws from psychedelic rock, blues-rock, folk rock, soul and Southern rock. As one of their more noteworthy EPs states, they are likely, for all intents and purposes, on tour indefinitely, which is great news for fans!

And, fans are always in for a real treat when it comes to a Blues Traveler concert. They are celebrated for their improvisational live shows that always captures the audience's attention. The band even invites fans to record and trade live shows, as long as no one profits from the swaps. The band has additionally granted permission for live fan-made recordings to be shared on the Internet on sites like eTree.org and Live Music Archive.

But the best way to experience Blues Traveler is for yourself at a one of their live concerts. Tickets allow fans of all music to see one aspect of the band illuminate above all else – pure musical talent. Fans all over the world make it a point to see this band live, as they are known for their remarkable impromptu jams and their variety of music. Blues Traveler tickets are unique in that there is little in the way of a sideshow – it's a great band playing crowd-pleasing music and a group of musicians letting their performance speak for itself.
