Perennial favorite, Blues Traveler, pulled their bus onto West Street on Monday afternoon and parked in front of the Rams Head On Stage. They were in town for a single sold-out show to an appreciative and enthusiastic crowd.
Seventeen years after scoring the Grammy Award winning, harmonica laced Billboard Top Ten breakthrough hit that came to define pop music in the mid-90s, Blues Traveler are still finding unique ways to ensure that they don’t give their legion of worldwide fans the “Run-Around.” This recent tour is in support of their instantly infectious, musically expansive 11th studio album and 429 Records/SLG debut, Suzie Cracks The Whip, they remain creatively focused while dramatically expanding their musical horizons upon celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.
The twittersphere was also pleased!

But enough of that. On with the show. Junior Marvin of the legendary Wailers (yes, Bob Marley and the Wailers) sat in with John Popper and the band on guitar and well….let’s just let the images speak for themselves!
