Blues Traveler

If you have not already gotten your tickets to see Blues Traveler, you better do so!! They are performing July 25th at the Roanoke Island Festival Park Outdoor Pavilion in Manteo. There is no better way to see this hugely popular band than on the lawn in beach chairs.  Stand up and dance to “Run Around” or relax with a cold beverage while listening to “Carolina Blues” (must play at this concert). No matter what song you want to hear, Roanoke Island Festival Park’s Outdoor Pavilion is the place to go on July 25th.

Gates opening at 5pm and the music starts shortly after that. Richmond’s own Pat McGee Band opens the entertainment at 5:30 with Matt McGuire & the Wilders following at 6:30. Matt McGuire frequents the Outer Banks and has a large loyal local and regional fan base. This line-up is exceptional and will prove to be a great night for music lovers.

This concert is a great way to end a fantastic day. Outer Banks vacations are filled with fun in the sun, searching for pirates and even an historical tour of the first settlers to discover the new world. A trip to Roanoke Island is a great way to spend the day. Make a day of it by heading to the Park and enjoy an afternoon exploring the Elizabeth II, the Roanoke Adventure Museum, and an American Indian Town or meander around Manteo. Whether on summer vacation at one of our Outer Banks vacation rentals or someone who lives here all year long, there is no better way to cap off a Thursday than by spending the evening with one of our most loved music groups.

Tickets can be bought in advance for $30 (plus tax and fees) through the Brew Thru website or at any Brew Thru location but are limited in the number available and $35 (plus tax and fees) at the door. Food and drinks are available at the event so just bring a chair and be ready to dance to all of the Blues Traveler favorites.

Blues Traveler is one of the most loved bands that got their start in the late 1980s and their first Grammy for none other than “Run Around” on 1995. In fact that chart topping single still holds the record for longest-charting single ever in the history of the Billboard charts. Since their start, they have entertained over 30 million fans at about 6,000 shows. This concert is an extra special one as the last time Blues Traveler was performing here, a hurricane changed everything.  So here we are several years later looking forward to one of the most loved groups.

For anyone planning a last minute week at the beach, the last week of July is a great week to spend on the Outer Banks. If the pick is a Nags Head vacation rental or one in any of the other towns, we can help with the plans.
