Each of the acts recently released new music to take on the road. Train’s “AM Gold,” the group’s 11th full-length album, dropped last month. Among the highlights is “Turn the Radio Up,” featuring tour mate Jewel, who released her 13th album, “Freewheelin’ Woman,” in April. Last fall, Blues Traveler unleashed their 14th studio album, “Traveler’s Blues,” a GRAMMY-nominated cover’s release.
Of course, audience members at the June 10 concert were perhaps most excited to hear the performers iconic hits. Blues Travelers’ John Popper embellished “Run Around” with his slick harmonica prowess. Singer-songwriter Jewel’s sweet, ever-so-slightly-twanged soprano sang through three hits from her 1995 debut, “Pieces of You.” Train fans enjoyed “Meet Virginia,” “Hey, Soul Sister” and a final encore of “Drops of Jupiter.”
The night also featured a special performance from the Northwell Health Nurse choir (pictured below). Last year, the choir competed in the finals of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
Following the choir, Thunderstorm Artis, a finalist on season 18 of “The Voice,” took to the stage. The singer-songwriter born and bred on the North Shore of Oahu performed a mix of uplifting originals and covers for an embracing crowd.
