Tonight @ Miller Lite Oasis, Summerfest, 8 p.m.
Jun. 28, 2009
Sister Hazel scored one of the most amiable hits of 1997 with “All for You,” a jangly roots-pop sing-along that lit up adult alternative stations but marked the band as another 1990s one-hit wonder (at least among listeners who correctly attribute that one hit to them—to this day many listeners understandably assume that Blues Traveler recorded the song). Sister Hazel, who ironically plays Summerfest on the same night as Blues Traveler, but not on the same stage, have changed remarkably little over the past decade—they still sound a lot like Blues Traveler, with a dash of Counting Crows—but although they’ve released their recent albums to diminishing sales and interest, they’ve remained an enduring touring institution.
