Give Thanks: Blues Traveler’s Playing The Capitol Theatre
Blues Traveler Thanksgiving Concerts
Continuing a long tradition of Thanksgiving concerts at The Capitol Theatre, Blues Traveler has announced that they’ll play two holiday shows at the Port Chester landmark the Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving Weekend. The two Blues Traveler Capitol Theatre concerts on 11/29 and 11/30 are a special edition to the rest of the fall Blues Traveler tour dates in support of last year’s album, Suzie Cracks the Whip. It’s a bit hard to believe that Blues Traveler has been together 25 years now, and the group’s current setlists illustrate their deep portfolio of hits and the veteran savvy to throw in plenty of interesting covers to keep fans guessing and singing along.
The Capitol Theatre Thanksgiving concert tradition began over 20 years ago, established in part by a number of years with Phish playing multiple shows over the holiday weekend. While a Blues Traveler live show features a different kind of jam band, they have a ton of credibility and ability to go in a number of musical directions led by charismatic front man John Popper. Popper’s transformed over the life of Blues Traveler, losing a great deal of weight after a health scare, but he’s maintained his voice’s characteristic range and growl along with his impeccable harmonica talents to help maintain the band’s sounds. Twenty years ago, they hit the big time with the album four, and this year you can give thanks for those hits and more at the Blues Traveler Capitol Theatre concerts over the holiday weekend.
