“Three decades … three decades and I am still surprised when we play and find some rich new musical vein to tap,” frontman John Popper said. “Three decades and I cannot believe my luck with this band of brothers and this string we have run! Thirty years since a bunch of loud boys embarked on an adventure that took them around the world and made them a family that has not ceased growing to this day. Thirty years later and I am still so very grateful.”
The next place to catch Blues Traveler is in Kalamazoo, Mich., on April 25. They have a few more spring and summer headline dates and are playing festivals like New Orleans Jazz & Heritage and Summerfest.
The band is going to start recording a new album in May and the new album is expected out in 2018.
