09-12-2004John Popper Project enters the studio; Popper & Wasserman to open for Particle in Boston

Jambands.com has released a few nuggets of news lately of interest to Blues Traveler fans, and to fans of their side projects in particular. First up is the news that the John Popper Project is alive and well, and will be entering the studio at some point this month to lay down tracks for their first-ever release, as of yet untitled. The full live lineup - Popper, Tad Kinchla, DJ Logic and Marcus Bleecker - will be descending upon Brooklyn's Blue Dot Studios, owned by BT family member Jonny Sheehan, brother of Bobby. The band is expected to record for most of the month, leading up to the two remaining Blues Traveler shows this year.

John will also be making an appearance in Boston on Halloween for the first time since a pair of shows in 1997, but instead as part of the also-revived collaboration between him and bassist Rob Wasserman. The pair, who also joined forces late last year, will be opening for Bay-area funktronic players Particle. This time around, the collaboration will be known as "Trick or Treat". The Halloween bash takes place at The Roxy; tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

Finally, John also dropped in on Jimmy Kimmel live on Thursday night, sitting in with new friend Jason Mraz on "Curbside Prophet". Popper appears on Mraz's new live DVD/CD "Tonight, Not Again" on both that tune - the first single - and the set-closing "Too Much Food". The DVD has been in stores since August 3rd.
