The Hungarian Ambassador and Rob Lowe Join Blues Traveler
Last night at Washingtons 9:30 Club, Blues Traveler helped foster proper international relations. The group was joined by Hungarian ambassador AndrSimonyi on electric guitar during The Mountains Win Again and Chattahoochie Coochie Man. Simonyi, who holds a doctorate in political science, also has lectured at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a few others contexts about the relationship between rock music and its historical appeal to youngsters in the former Soviet Bloc.
Rob Lowe also took the stage with Traveler, adding harmonica to Business As Usual. However, this was not the actor but rather the musician who performs with Ten Feet Tall (although it should be noted that in St. Elmo’s Fire, which also is set in D.C., the actor Rob Lowe pretends to blow sax and achieves some measure of mediocrity as a tortured artist).
