Blues Travelers deliver a nostalgic performance at Houston’s House of Blues

When you think back to the 90s, you envision bleached tapered hair, rollerblading, and a warm, nostalgic sensation from all the wonderful music that arose from the era. One band that most recall while cruising through the decade of music are the blues rock band, The Blues Travelers.

Since their start back in 1987, the band has released 13 albums. one of those albums is a new release called, “Hurry Up & Hang Around”. Their new album is a vivid showcase of their bluesy, funk background that will get your feet taping. Despite years of music making, and change of lineup, the band consistently has stuck to their original sound.

This past weekend we caught the band in Houston, TX at the notable House of Blues. Kicking off the night was San Francisco Bay Area, band Con Brio. Lead singer Ziek McCarter delivered an energetic intro with his strong R&B vocals and “James Brown” dance moves. Following their set, Blues Travelers opened up with an old favorite, “Stand” off of their 1994 album ‘Four’. Throughout their set, the band intertwined old and new music from their discography as well as several covers like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, and “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”. 

As the night winded down, the band performed their last song of the night, a beautiful Bob Marley & the Wailers cover, “Could You Be Loved” featuring openers, Con Brio. The duo held a perpetual spirit and illustrated their love throughout the tune, until the very last note was played. 

After experiencing one of the best performances we’ve seen in awhile, we want you to catch the band as they finish up on their US tour!
