35 years ago the four original members of Blues Traveler – John Popper, Chandler Kinchla, Brendan Hill, and the late Bobby Sheehan – gathered in the drummer’s parent’s basement in Princeton, NJ to jam. From these high school sessions emerged a band that would go on to release 13 studio albums and counting, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-times platinum with total sales of more than 10 million albums worldwide.
Over their illustrious career Blues Traveler has played more than 3,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and “Run-Around” had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history which earned them a Grammy® for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. The bands current album Traveler’s Blues has been nominated for a Grammy® for Best Traditional Blues Album. A television favorite, they have 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.

Special Guest Opener for Blues Traveler will be Danielle Howle.
Known for captivating audiences with her stunning vocal ability, contagious energy, and incredible songwriting skills, Danielle’s music ranges from country-swamp-blues to jazz to Americana with clear jazz, country, southern rock, indie, and folk influences.
The South-Carolinian songbird has been compared to Flannery O’Connor, Patsy Cline, and Nina Simone. The New York Times calls her “an extraordinary mind, a southern storyteller with a gorgeous sense of melody that should be pouring out of stereos everywhere,” and Newsweek said, “Howle sounds as soothing as Karen Carpenter, as graceful as k.d.lang and as Saturday-night worn as Patsy Cline.”
