BLUES TRAVELER ANNOUNCE PLANS TO REMAIN
TOGETHER IN WAKE OF BOBBY SHEEHAN'S DEATH
October, 7th 1999
NEW YORK--- The three remaining members of the Grammy
award winning quartet Blues Traveler have announced plans
to remain together following the death of the band's
bassist Bobby Sheehan. The decision was unanimous, and
was the end result of a summit held in New York City on
Saturday, September 11th where issues surrounding the
band's future were addressed.
Blues Traveler's guitarist Chan Kinchla commented on
behalf of the band, "We thought it would be useless
to compound the tragedy by letting something we all,
including Bobby, worked so hard for to fall apart."
The previously announced preformance in Reno, Nevada
at the Reno Hilton which was planned for New Year's Eve
has been changed to a John Popper Band gig.
According to sources at the venue, the John Popper band
will be performing one two-set show on December 31st only; no
show is scheduled for December 30th as was previously
reported here. Ticket refunds can be obtained by calling
