The group, who also celebrates their successful 25-year career this year, took over the radio airwaves nearly two decades ago with their groundbreaking hit, “Run-Around,” from their 1994 record, Four. Infused by the band’s innovative sound, harmonica-laced licks and John Popper’s captivating vocals, the breakthrough song scored the band their first Grammy Award, topped music charts for weeks and became the longest-charting single in Billboard history.

In addition to one of the greatest songs of the ‘90s, Blues Traveler, who started as a humble jam band from New Jersey, relished in their newfound spotlight, following up the success of “Run-Around” with “Hook,” another Top 40 smash from Four. Pioneering the music movement of the decade, the group became a mainstream rock/pop icon, entertaining millions of adoring fans worldwide, garnering six certified gold and platinum albums and breaking records.

Their latest album, Suzie Cracks The Whip, is a musical resurgence for Blues Traveler. With special guests like Spin Doctor’s Chris Barron and American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, who both wrote songs and performed on the album, the band’s musical repertoire is on a whole new level.
