Show Announcements: Blues Traveler and Dave Koz & Friends

How about a little soul in your life? A couple concert announcements today could go a long way toward getting your groove on this year.

Blues Traveler
has been through a ton. They hit it big with a couple singles "Run-Around", "Hook", and "But Anyway". Then things started getting a little crazy. Lead singer John Popper suddenly had to battle his obesity in a very public light and bassist Bobby Sheehan was found dead of a drug overdose in 1999.  After being dropped from their label, Blues Traveler regrouped and refocused on their more jam-blues based sound. Now, Blues Traveler is back to full time touring and is playing Culture Room October 27. Tickets are $20 are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

Grammy-winning saxophonist Dave Koz is bringing his 12th annual "Smooth Jazz Christmas" tour to the Dreyfoos Hall in West Palm Beach on November 29. Koz is touring with trumpet player Rick Braun, guitarist Peter White, Keyboardist Brenda Russell, and pianist David Benoit to form a sort of Voltron of jazz. Tickets aren't yet on sale, but check Ticketmaster for more details.
