Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Traffic co-founder Dave Mason is hitting the road in 2014 his new band, Dave Mason's Traffic Jam.
The tour begins January 3 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The singer, songwriter and guitarist has been touring and recording regularly since co-founding Traffic in 1966, after which he went on to a successful solo career as well as recording and/or touring with Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Delaney & Bonnie, Graham Nash, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Fleetwood Mac and more.
The “Traffic Jam” shows will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967’s Mr. Fantasy and 1968’s Traffic albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and classic Mason music.
In 2014, Mason will release a new EP, Futures Past, featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available at davemasonmusic.com and his live shows.
“I think it's important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music,” Mason says. “And Traffic Jam, aside from the obvious material, will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive!”
