Sunday, April 13, The Gin Blossoms: The Grammy-nominated group with its blend of pop and rock became a musical force that helped define the sound of ‘90s radio. With massive hits like Follow You Down, Til I Hear It From You and Hey Jealousy, the band had multi cross-over hits in four different radio formats. After a series of charting singles, the band broke up in 1997, reunited in 2002 and released a fourth album, Major Lodge Victory, in 2006, and a fifth, No Chocolate Cake, in 2010.
Concerts coming up next weekend include…
Friday, April 18, Yonder Mountain String Band: This Colorado native foursome blends bluegrass, rock and countless other influences. With its traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance, but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre, as evidenced by their legions of loyal fans from the Centennial State and beyond.
Saturday, April 19, Blues Traveler: One of the world’s legendary jam bands, Blues Traveler has released a total of nine studio albums, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-times platinum. Over the course of their illustrious career, Blues Traveler has sold more than 10 million combined units worldwide, played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and with their hit song Run-Around had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, which earned a Grammy.
