I was thrilled to be able to bring the act “Traveler” to our festival. With their unique blend of traditional eastern influences and western rock they were certainly a crowd pleaser. The leader, Scott Jeffers is an amazing front man with a mesmerizing stage presence and a musical virtuosity seldom seen. We were lucky to have them play several times, including an amazing Saturday night performance that had the audience on it’s feet dancing the whole time. and finally winding down our festival as the last act on Sunday. They showed a willingness to get involved in workshops, and wowed campers at the all night jams. I would highly recommend this act to any musical event organizers out there, they traveled many miles to get here, were a pleasure to deal with and we are so lucky to have had the experience.”
Tim Cretsinger, director – Groovefest American Music festival, Cedar City, Utah: “Traveler, lead precisely by the dashing exhibition of Scott Jeffers, was a group that was literally unknown in our area, but just one performance changed all that, making them superstars to the thousands that witnessed them, in just a couple of hours! Now, Traveler is a household word in these parts. I would book them again in a heartbeat.”

“Steve “Doc” Floor, Performing Arts Coordinator – Utah Arts Festival: “Traveler is an exceptional world music band. They are proven performers and have the skills, talent and experience to provide outstanding, high energy and colorful entertainment to the wide diversity of attendees at the Utah Arts Festival. We’ve had ‘em twice and we’d have ‘em again!”
Randi Carnahan – Tanana Valley State Fair, Fairbanks, Alaska: We are so grateful that Traveler was able to perform here at the Tanana Valley State Fair this year! My only regret is that they were only here for 2 days; we were asked about them constantly for the remaining 7 days of the Fair, and I have no doubt they would have played to packed audiences every day if we had been able to keep them here longer! Their music is a GREAT fit for Alaska, and I saw a wide range of folks enjoying the performances. We would definitely entertain the idea of having them return, even though we generally work with In State performers for our Fair!
