Flashback to the ’90s.
Four unforgettable artists—Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Blues Traveler and Uncle Kracker—will be performing Tuesday, July 29 at The Paramount in Huntington on their Under the Sun Tour, transporting all those in attendance back to a time when alt-rock was exploding and it was fashionable to wear flannels and combat boots throughout the summer.
Additionally, Under the Sun is teaming with SuretoneLive.com for the unprecedented livestream, to be webcast around the world, direct from The Paramount, slated for 7 p.m. that night. The first hour will include live streaming interviews with bandmates and other behind-the-scenes exclusives, with the groups set to conquer the stage at 8 p.m.
In other words, this is a gig not to be missed!
Touring more than 33 cities, this quadruple threat of musical legends will undoubtedly be memorable, replete with all the infectious number-one hits that propelled these acts into mega-stardom. The Under the Sun Tour has already been receiving high praises from critics at Billboard, The Los Angeles Times and The Boston Globe, among many other media outlets.
Singer/songwriter Mark McGrath of California alt-rock-poppers Sugar Ray wrote and bombarded the charts with such ear candy as “Someday,” “When It’s Over,” “Fly” and “Every Morning.” Having several multi-platinum albums, untold sold-out tours, and headlining cover stories in both Spin and Rolling Stone magazine, the gig will have old fans reminiscing and singing along to their favorite classics while converting the next generation of new fans.
Fellow SoCal-based pop-rockers Smash Mouth have sold more than six million albums in the United States alone, delivering such addictive 90s-era anthems as “Can’t Get Enough of You Baby,” “Then the Morning Comes,” “Walking on the Sun,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” and, of course, super-mega hit “All Star.” In 2012, they released their sixth studio album, Magic, and its title track single soared once again to the top of the charts. The same year, they released the rock and roll cookbook Recipes from the Road, loaded with inspiring recipes that will not only please your ears but stomach as well.
From pop to folk to R&B to Southern rock, New Jersey’s Blues Traveler has entertained audiences for three decades strong. With more than 30 million fans worldwide, along with the Grammy award-winning tune “Run-Around,” Blues Traveler is truly unstoppable—and prolific. In 2012 the band released Suzie Cracks The Whip, further modernizing and evolving their style for an ever-growing legion of fans.
Will singer/harmonica virtuoso John Popper be wearing his trademark hat and harmonica belt as he rocks the ’Mount? Only one way to find out.
Uncle Kracker will also be bringing the noise, rocking out on such hits as “Follow Me,” “Smile,” “In a Little While” and “Drift Away,” capturing audiences alike and transporting them back in time. Although originally known for his role as the DJ in Kid Rock’s band, the Uncler’s solo career blossomed soon after and he ascended to the tops. Recently, he worked alongside Kenny Chesney and rocked the top of the country charts for more than a month. Constantly making appearances on popular television shows, Uncle Kracker’s live show is truly unforgettable.
This collaboration of artists is a must-see trip back in time that cannot be missed.
