More on Blues Traveler

In 1987, the four original members of Blues Traveler – John Popper, Chandler Kinchla, Brendan Hill, and the late Bobby Sheehan – gathered in their drummer’s parent’s basement in Princeton, New Jersey to jam. From these high school sessions emerged a band that would go on to release 14 studio albums (and counting), four of which have gone Gold, three Platinum, and one six-times-Platinum – selling more than 10 million combined units worldwide.

Over an illustrious career, Blues Traveler has played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and, in “Run-Around,” had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history. The song earned Blues Traveler a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

The band’s movie credits include “Blues Brothers 2000,” “Kingpin” and “Wildflowers.” A television favorite, Blues Traveler has been featured on “Saturday Night Live,” “Austin City Limits,” VH1's “Behind the Music,” and they have the record for the most appearances of any artist on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Their album, “Traveler’s Blues,” released in 2021, was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Traditional Blues Album, bringing a 35-year-plus journey full circle. The group’s most recent recording is “Traveler’s Soul,” released in 2023.

More on Big Head Todd and the Monsters

Big Head Todd and the Monsters have persisted as a rare force of nature in rock ’n’ roll. The platinum-selling Colorado quartet – Todd Park Mohr (vocals, guitar, keys, sax, harmonica), Brian Nevin (drums, percussion), Rob Squires (bass, vocals) and Jeremy Lawton (guitar, keys, vocals, steel guitar) – has consistently churned out undeniable and often uplifting anthems fueled by a hybrid of no-nonsense hard rock, simmering soul, dyed-in-the-wool blues, and a twist of country.

Their influence and imprint only widened over time, selling out even bigger venues and enrapturing new eras of fans with every passing year.
