Bands set to play at High Point Market

Blues Traveler, Sister Hazel, WonderBread 5

Three rock bands - Blues Traveler, Sister Hazel and the WonderBread 5 - will entertain during the spring High Point Market, which opens April 17.

The WonderBread 5, a San Francisco-based party band, will perform on opening night, while Grammy Award-winning Blues Traveler takes the stage on April 18. Sister Hazel, an alternative rock band, will perform on April 19.

The WonderBread 5, whose members use the names Michael, Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Action Jackson, perform a wide range of rock-and-roll music that includes songs from the B-52s to The Beatles.

Blues Traveler, whose sound combines blues with psychedelic, folk, Southern rock and soul, has recorded eight studio albums and four live albums that have sold more than 10 million units. The group's best-known single, "Run Around," was the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history.

Sister Hazel has recorded 10 albums and had its music featured in several movies, including "Major League: Back to the Minors," "The Wedding Planner," and "10 Things I Hate About You." The group's best-known singles are "All For You" and "Change Your Mind."

All three bands will perform under the tent on the Showplace parking lot as part of the market's "Stars Under The Stars" series.

"Beyond these exciting headliners will be an outstanding line-up of additional live entertainment across the downtown area, along with an abundance of complimentary food and drink options to ensure that our guests will find something for everyone while they are working here this spring,"  Market Authority President Brian Casey said.
