For me personally, Blues Traveler will the band the opened my ears to the word of improvisational rock. I have been Fellow Traveler for over 20 years and have seen some legendary shows but the day I went to the ‘96 H.O.R.D.E Festival forever changed the path my life would take...or at least made it more groovy.
Love & Greed Is a fantastic opener to any show or to any playlist and a stand out on one of Blues Traveler’s best albums 1993’s Save His Soul. The high energy racing grooves of this live staple are perfectly showcased in this version from “Blues Traveler's 1996 album “Live From The Fall”. Chan Kinchla’s shredding is intertwined with the sweeping harp solos of John Popper. The result being a hair-raising jam that will set the mood for the whole live show.

About the Curator - Marc James
It was a cold winters night in Boston when Marc James was born into this world atop the pool table at Cheers. From the moment he sang out his first word “Norm!” the world knew the prophecy had been fulfilled. After turning down a scholarship to The Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Marc James attended broadcasting school to focus on the wonderful world of radio. With a degree in radio broadcasting proving to be about as valuable as a festering bucket of raccoon semen, Marc James took his talents and vast knowledge of useless information to the planet Radiotron to study under the Guru of Groove. Upon his return Marc James worked briefly for the Bartlet for America campaign before joining forces with mighty The Poop Culture Podcast, conveying his love of film, jambands, sports and all tings pop culture to the masses. It was then when he learned of his one true calling, bringing peace, love light and joy to the world, while we all wait for the impending zombie apocalypse.
