13 summers ago on July 4th, I started working offically for Blues Traveler. One of my first jobs for them was handing out flyers, which later became known as "Gigs At A Glance" and now known as "GAAG". As I write this lastest update to all of you it made me think of my early days with Blues Traveler. Last year, many of you handed out flyers for the West Coast Run and the Fall Tour. We had a great time meeting all of you and your hard work was a big part of why the tour was so much fun and the show of support was so overwhelming-So thanks to all of you. I think this is one of my favorite parts of a Blues Traveler tour, when I get to know you guys, work with you and have you be a really important part of the shows. Below is a list of tour dates where I need volunteers to help hand out flyers. If you live in one of these cities or even near by, e-mail me and I will explain the whole mission. Here is my address:
June 14th Hyannis MA- Cape Cod Melody Tent
June 15th Cohasset MA- South Shore Music Circus

The Summer Tour is finally coming together tour dates are listed on the websites both com and net...Thanks net guys...The band has been writing new songs and will be showcasing many of them this summer. We will be releasing a new Live CD this summer too. It will be available in stores and at the shows. I will let everyone know more about this and the release date soon.
July 3rd and 4th...I know many people are bummed about the traditional Fox show not taking place this year. This holiday has always been special to us as Americans but this year it is a bitter sweet reunion back up on those rocks. We have always been proud and honored to be able to play Red Rocks on the 4th of July. To have the chance to do it for two days with great friends and family, jamming to music under the summer skies in one of the most naturally beautiful places on earth. This is all possible because we live in this great country. To be able to honor her birth for 2 days, we felt at this time, in all our lives, that this truly felt right.
July 3rd the BoDeans and just added Pseudopod will join BT to get the celebration rolling. On July 4th our old HORDE touring friends G Love and Special Sauce will show up to jam the night away as we observe our nation's birthday.
13 magical years with BT and Fellow Travelers. I hope to see some of you on the road this summer. We are truly lucky to be able to have music to sooth us at this time, when it is needed more then ever. I hope this message finds all of you well.
Have Fun !!
