Eighteen years after scoring the Grammy Award winning, harmonica-laced Billboard Top Ten breakthrough hit that came to define pop music in the mid-90s with “Run Around”, Blues Traveler is still finding unique ways to electrify fans around the world, to the tune of approximately 30 million people and upwards of 6,000 live shows over the band’s now 26 year history.

Beyond the commercial success of their recordings, which have sold in excess of 13 million combined units worldwide, Blues Traveler has long been known for the use of segues, multiple song mash-ups and instrumental jams in their live performances.
