BluesTraveler_Web205x170A New York­based blues­rock quartet formed in 1988 by singer/harmonica player John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, bassist Bobby Sheehan, and drummer Brendan Hill, Blues Traveler were part of a revival of the extended jamming style of ’60s and ’70s groups like the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin. Signed to A&M, they released their first album, Blues Traveler, in May 1990 and followed it with Travelers & Thieves in September 1991. In April 1993, Blues Traveler released their third album, Save His Soul, which became the band’s first to make the Top 100. Blues Traveler’s aptly named fourth album, Four, released in September 1994, with single “Run­Around,” that became the group’s first chart hit. They released the live double album Live from the Fall in the summer of 1996 and  in the summer of 1997 with its fifth studio album, Straight on Till Morning, and their sixth record, Bridge, appeared in May 2001. The next winter, Blues Traveler released the live What You and I Have Been Through. In March 2012, the band released 25, a two­disc set celebrating the group’s 25th anniversary.
