A Letter from Gina
And I can barely keep my seat
If I wait it's too late
Then I rise"
Gearing up for another BT Fall Tour, I put on "Truth Be Told" to set the
mood for myself and "The One" comes on, as I listen to this song I am
inspired once again to write to you all.
First I want to thank all the Fellow Travelers who danced the night away
all over the country with The John Popper Project featuring DJ Logic. Wow,
what a journey for those who jumped on this ride. It was a great tour,
although they seemed to bring the snow with them to a few places on this
tour (Denver & I-90 Mtn Pass to Seattle) but all in all it was indeed a
"A traffic full of people all going home".... as John and Tad head home
from Popper Project, to begin Blues Traveler Fall Tour, I realized how
lucky we all are, the BT guys to be doing a Fall Tour and us as fans
getting to share live music together. From small bar bands to National
Tours, live music exists because you guys come to the shows and give all
your love and energy to the bands.
I know I sound like a broken record here... Maybe it is the fall, all the
colors and the changes in the trees today. It is making me think back to
the day I walked into the Nightingale Bar and fell in love with a band
called...Blues Traveler. From that first note, I knew that they were "The
One" and for me I knew the ride had begun and oh boy what a ride it has
I think it is important to remember that first note, you know "The One"
that speaks to you from the moment you hear it, it changes you from then
on and once that ride has begun, it is always that first note of that live
show as the lights go down that makes you appreciate live music and the
place it lives within your soul.
So thank you Fellow Travelers for riding with Blues Traveler over the
years. I think about the friendships that have been made between all of
us. The memories are fond and the faces we see each night in each city so
"As for me I'm happy being right here as long as you're there"...
Blues Traveler begins a new; let's call it experiment for this Fall Tour.
As you see we are doing some "Theater Shows" and just because some of
these theaters have seats this does not mean you have to sit all night, if
you feel like dancing please... "rise"..!! Blues Traveler, Fellow
Travelers, Live Music, ah yes now those are some nice fall colors.
In January the guys will begin to write for a new CD- not sure when it
will be recorded but they wanted to get together and hole up somewhere and
just write. More news about this will be forthcoming. As well as we are
working on some video clips we have taken from the road over the years and
will be posting these on the internet for all to see... some editing is
taking place to protect the innocent and their Moms. More news about this
"If you're the one, then it's begun"
Well my Fellow Travelers, I look forward to dancing with you all as the
first note is played and the lights go down.
Have Fun !!!
