John Popper, Blues Traveler’s frontman, doesn’t need a whole lot of introduction. The dude can rip a harmonica better than most guitar players can shred guitar. He’s that good. Along with Chan Kinchla (guitar), Tad Kinchla (bass), Brendan Hill (drums) and Ben Wilson (keyboard), the band has a proven reputation for their improvisational live shows and tireless touring.

With a total of twelve studio albums — four gold, three platinum and one six-times platinum — they have sold more than 10 million combined units worldwide, and played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million fans. Their hit “Run-Around” is the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, and earned them a Grammy for best rock performance.

$30.50-$52, Fri Nov. 9, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., theaztectheatre.com.
