Not only has Blues Traveler dominated the music scene for many decades, its catchy melodies and powerful all-encompassing rock sound have earned the group a Grammy Award, their platinum “four” album, singles on the Billboard 200 and Mainstream Rock Tracks charts, and numerous songs in many popular feature films and television shows.

Formed in 1987 in Princeton, New Jersey, Blues Traveler has over 30 years of experience in the music industry. With 13 studio albums, the band’s unprecedented sound has given the group notable recognition and an impressive resume. Blues Traveler appeared at Woodstock ’94, opened for The Rolling Stones, played on Saturday Night Live, wrote the theme song for “Roseanne” in its final season and was featured on the show, and appeared in the movie “Blues Brothers 2000.”
