- Blues Traveler: The eclectic band behind “Run-Around” and “Hook” does a lot more than execute Grateful Dead-esque jams and freight-train harmonica solos at their live shows. They also created H.O.R.D.E. in 1992 as a collaborative traveling concert with likeminded bands. It’s been recently resurrected, much to the delight of their audience.
- 311: These Omaha genre benders broke into the mainstream by fusing rap, reggae, and hard rock on their self-titled album in 1995. It went triple-platinum thanks to the singles “Don’t Stay Home,” “All Mixed Up,” and “Down,” and paved the way for a decades-long career that’s resulted in 11 records, their own cruise, and an unofficial holiday named after them.
- Big Head Todd & The Monsters: Formed in 1986, these blues-rockers soared to platinum status with 1993’s Sister Sweetly, which featured the melancholic rasp of frontman Todd Park Mohr. That same vibe and sound is found on their latest release, 2014’s Black Beehive, whose title track is an homage to the late Amy Winehouse.
- The Verve Pipe This East Lansing-based alternative rock group was founded in 1992, building a reputation in Michigan and beyond for their energetic live performances. By 1996 they released their best-known album The Villains, which included the Billboard Hot 100 hit “The Freshmen”, and releasing three albums since then—their 2014 album Crash Landing ended a 13-year recording hiatus.
