Pat Travers Band
Pat Travers Band
A co-headlining tour with Rainbow followed, and the two bands performed in major arenas across North America. Although the tour was Travers' most successful road outing, the Radio Active album barely made it into the Top 40, reaching only number 37. Before the release of the 1984 album Hot Shot, longtime bassist Cowling left the band, and Travers would work with several different bassists including Cliff Jordan and Donni Hughes until Cowling's return in 1989. Also at this time Jerry Riggs joined the Pat Travers Band, and he and Travers created a guitar team that fans considered difficult to rival. After Hot Shot's release in 1984, Polydor made plans to issue a greatest hits package, and then ended their relationship with Travers. In 1993, Travers parted company with both Jerry Riggs and Peter "Mars" Cowling, and Riggs was briefly replaced by former Foghat guitarist Erik Cartwright.
The relationship was very brief, and Travers has worked with a variety of musicians since that time. From 2008-2016, was one of the longest/most consistent line ups for Pat Travers Band. Joining Pat was Kirk McKim (2006-2015)(Guitar/Vocals), Sean Shannon (2008-2010)(Drums), followed by Sandy Gennaro (2010-2016), and Rodney O'Quinn (2007-2016)(Bass/Vocals). The line up was viewed as the "Must See Line up" for all die hard PTB fans. The Pat Travers Band (PTB) currently consists of Pat Travers (guitars, vocals, keyboards), Tommy Craig (drums), and David Pastorius (bass/vocals). Read more on Last.fm.
