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 1-800-648-3568.
