Emerging from the early 1990s jam band scene, Blues Traveler first made their name through non-stop touring, lengthy sets, and the passionate, virtuoso harmonica solos of lead singer and frontman John Popper. Formed in Princeton, New Jersey, Blues Traveler started as a garage band formed of high school friends in the mid-1980s. After graduating Princeton High School and moving to New York City, the band made a name for themselves playing local clubs, securing a contract with A&M in 1989. In 1992, the group founded the H.O.R.D.E. festival as an alternative to others such as Lollapalooza, along with other bands such as Phish and Spin Doctors. Although their popularity amid fans is based on their improvisational live shows, the general public is most familiar with the group from their Top 40 singles "Run-Around" and "Hook". To date, Blues Traveler have released 12 studio albums, their most recent being Blow Up the Moon, which was released in April 2015.
