(Vocal/instrumental group, 1988–present)

This New York jam band initially favoured the extended blues rock format made popular by The Grateful Dead. John Popper (vocals, harmonium), Chan Kinchla (guitar), Bobby Sheehan (bass) and Brendan Hills (drums) built a solid following that was vastly amplified when aptly named fourth album – Four (1995) – sold four million copies on the back of the hit single ‘Run-Around’. Although Shehean died in 1999 – at 31 – the band continue to record and tour with great success.
