Blues Traveler teamed up with a very 1990s assortment of guests for their annual July 4th show at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. First up was Rome Ramirez of Sublime with Rome, who came out early in the set for “Castaway” and “Vagabond Blues,” the two songs that he played on from Blues Traveler’s latest album Blow Up the Moon. Ramirez then returned for a cover of Sublime’s classic “What I Got” later in the set.

The night’s other guests, Colorado electronic music duo 3OH!3 and NSYNC’s JC Chasez, helped out on their Blues Traveler collaborations “Blow Up The Moon” and “Hurricane” before coming back to the stage with Hanson and Guster for encore takes on Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker” and NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye.”

Blues Traveler frontman John Popper also made a couple of appearances during the opening sets from Guster and Hanson. The singer/harmonica wizard joined Guster for the Ganging Up on the Son tune “Satellite,” and he sat in with Hanson for “In The City,” his collaboration from the trio’s 2000 record This Time Around.
