The Samples Background
Even though The Samples didn't officially form until 1987, the band's roots can be traced back to 1985, when Sean Kelly and Charles Hambleton first met at an open mic night in Vermont. After gigging together for a year, the duo decided to move to Boulder, Colorado in pursuit of a more vibrant alternative rock scene. Once there, the duo recruited a few more members to join their band, and shortly afterward, The Samples was formed. The band hit the road for their first national tour in 1988, and by performing largely to college audiences, they gradually gained fame and recognition across the country. The Samples' heavy touring schedule is what has earned them comparisons to bands like The Grateful Dead, as well as other jam bands that have risen to fame due to their grassroots approach.
The Samples released their debut eponymous album in 1989, and were well on their way to becoming one of the hottest bands in music. As The Samples continued to release new music and gain a larger fan base, they scored touring spots with some of the biggest names in music, such as Phish, The Allman Brothers Band, and Blues Traveler. In fact, after they became a major headliner themselves, they had numerous up and coming bands open for them, including now-famous bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, the Dave Matthews Band, and Lisa Loeb. There is no doubt that The Samples were one of the biggest names in alternative rock in the '90s, and they even scored television performances on House of Blues and on The Tonight Show. They had gone from a small regional band in Colorado to one of the most beloved bands in mainstream music!
