Old school jam band Blues Traveler long ago established a tradition of performing at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on Independence Day. The tradition, which dates back to the '90s, continued again last night with a new twist as jam stalwarts moe. opened the evening's festivities.

moe. tipped their proverbial hat towards the occasion by performing "Captain America" early in their set. Four songs in Blues Traveler front man John Popper and keyboardist Ben Wilson emerged for takes on moe. originals "Crackers" and "Plane Crash." "Crackers," which was sung by moe. bassist Rob Derhak, was debuted in May at Summer Camp and had been referred to as "Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes." A dream sequence of "Jazz Wank" > "Rebubula" followed by "New York City" brought moe.'s set to a close.

Headliners Blues Traveler had a treat in store for their Colorado fans as they performed all of 1993's Save His Soul LP at Red Rocks. Many of the songs from the album have become rare over the years. The evening came to a close with a full fireworks display.
