06-27-2007More summer tour dates added, including John Popper Project dates; Blues Traveler appearing on CONCERT.tv through July 15th and possibly on Cox cable; John Popper jams on new Stolen Ogre release

The summer tour schedule continues to fill in as more and more dates are announced by the home office. Recent additions include several dates in mid and late July, as well as a cluster of dates in mid-August. At the moment it looks like the band will be touring straight through the end of August, and then take another swing in mid-to-late September. August's slate also includes a few John Popper Project shows as well; confirmed dates include a pair of shows on August 2nd in New York City - afternoon and evening shows on a Hudson River cruise boat - and a single show two days later in Lima, OH. Pollstar also puts the Project in Crested Butte, Colorado on June 29th and 30th for the Endless Peaks Music Experience, as well as on August 3rd at the Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg, PA, but these last three dates are not officially confirmed as of this writing.

If you're not able to catch the band this summer, you've still got a few weeks to catch them on TV - that is, if you get CONCERT.tv. From their recent press release:

BLUES TRAVELER will be appearing on the music television network CONCERT.TV from June 15th - July 15th. CONCERT.TV is a FREE to view on demand television network that programs memorable performances, compelling documentaries and unique originals for subscribers of Comcast, Cox, Insight, Charter and many other digital cable services.

According to CONCERT.tv's listings, the channel will be broadcasting "Thinnest of Air", the band's 2003 DVD filmed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Viewers of Cox cable in the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area may also be able to catch the band's recent show in Ashburn, VA; the show was apparently recorded for later broadcast though no details are available yet.

Lastly, the latest from Michael McMorrow and the rest of Stolen Ogre:

Band to release preview EP to radio and iTunes

Seattle, WA JUNE 2007 - Blues Traveler's Brendan Hill was a founding member of Seattle's Stolen Ogre. Now Hill's BT bandmate John Popper guests on Stolen Ogre's latest release. Recorded at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, WA, the new material includes a Stolen Ogre performance staple "So We Danced" and the brand new rootsy "Tequila Mockingbird" that features Harmonica Virtuoso and Blues Traveler Front Man John Popper; his first recording of 2007.

"It really is a classic Popper performance and we couldn't be happier" remarks McMorrow. "I had this idea of what I would like to hear on the track; John comes strolling in a day before driving to Austin to record with Blues Traveler and just nailed it. It was what I had been hearing in my head except a thousand times better." Stolen Ogre is releasing a preview of the new material in the form of the Tequila Mockingbird EP which includes the Popper infused single "Tequila Mockingbird", "House of Candy" and "So We Danced" while working on finishing the full length CD. The EP will also be available to fans through iTunes, Zune.net , Rhapsody, Yahoo, Napster and other digital download locations.
