Blues Traveler has long been a name in the American music canon. In the last 30 years, the group has produced 12 albums, performed more than 2,000 shows, founded its own music festival—the now-defunct HORDE Festival—and earned multiple gold and platinum awards. Known for its chart-topping song "Run-Around," which won the band a Grammy in 1996, Blues Traveler kept it moving, producing its most recent album, Blow Up The Moon (Loud & Proud), in 2015. Currently on tour to commemorate its 30th anniversary, Blues Travel makes a stop in Boise at the Knitting Factory on Friday, Nov. 10, in advance of its next release.
Blues Traveler has been performing its Southern, soul, psychedelic and, obviously, blues-inspired rock for decades and as anyone who loves the John Popper-led group will agree, just see the band once, and the hook will bring you back.
