Over an illustrious career, beginning when high-schoolers John Popper, Chandler Kinchla, Brendan Hill, and the late Bobby Sheehan started practicing in a basement 35 years ago, Blues Traveler has played more than 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people. The band has released 14 studio albums, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-time platinum release, selling more than 10 million combined units worldwide.
The band’s song, “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. Their movie credits include Blues Brothers 2000, Kingpin, Wildflowers and others. 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. Blues Traveler’s latest effort, 2021’s Traveler’s Blues is nominated for a Grammy® in the category of “Best Traditional Blues Album,” bringing their 35-year journey full circle.
