The band, which has played with guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana and opened for the Rolling Stones, comes to Seattle on Sunday, Nov. 12. Several decades ago, Blues Traveler was among the new generation of young jam bands following in the mighty footsteps of the Grateful Dead. As Blues Traveler celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, frontman John Popper wonders where the time has gone. “It’s pretty amazing,” says the singer-songwriter and harmonica player, calling from the road.
Lukas Nelson has spent over a decade honing his chops on stage and in the studio with his band Promise of the Real. When it comes to building career longevity in the music business, the singer, songwriter and guitarist has learned from the best – his father, country legend Willie Nelson. “Dad is 84 years old and still rocking and rolling every night,” he says. “He plays 150 shows a year and is doing great.” Juggling multiple projects of his own, the younger Nelson has been a busy man.

Several decades ago, Blues Traveler was among the new generation of young jam bands following in the mighty footsteps of the Grateful Dead. As Blues Traveler celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, frontman John Popper wonders where the time has gone. "It's pretty amazing," says the singer-songwriter and harmonica player, calling from the road. "We can't believe we've gotten to this point.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
