Coming off hot from a big weekend at their inaugural self-hosted festival moe.down, moe. will be jumping right into their 2019 summer tour with no rest. As fans already know, the All Roads Runaround Tour will see moe. join musical friends, Blues Traveler, for its entirety, as well as special guest, G. Love and Special Sauce, for a number of shows.
Blues Traveler, moe. and G. Love all have a long history of sharing the stage together, with the most recent of course being this past spring when Traveler’s John Popper joined moe. at The Beacon Theatre. To hype ourselves up for what should surely be a memorable summer ahead, we’re looking back to a few older collaboration moe.ments.
The Electric Factory 2002:
Since Blues Traveler and moe. will be playing a collaboration set each show this summer, first up on this list is a whole set of moe. and John Popper jams from 2002! At a famous show at The Electric Factory, the buffalo jamband invited Popper to throw down on the entire second set, and the harmonica wizard lent his chops to one big song after the next, like Buster, Rebubula, AND Recreational Chemistry. Listen to this show here!
Nothing fits the feeling of summertime outside quite like a big, rolling “Bring It Back Home” from moe. Right after a nice Father’s Day message from Chuck Garvey, John Popper gives this fun version some sharp harp shredding.
John Popper isn’t the only one to have shredded some harmonica in a moe. set! Back in 2008, at the eighth annual Summercamp Music Festival, G. Love joined moe. for a rowdy, party-ready version of the band’s “St. Augustine.”
Red Rocks 2013:
Even better than big Bonnaroo? moe. and Blues Traveler jammed together at the one and only Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2013, and Popper ripped it up beside the band on their classic rocker “Plane Crash,.” This version also featured Traveler keyboardist Ben Wilson. Take a listen to this one for some harmonica and dual guitar trade-off heat!
