Born and raised in Toronto, Pat Travers picked up the guitar at age 12 and would go on to change the face of Rock music. Playing in bands such as The Music Machine, Red Hot, and Merge throughout his teenage years, Pat Travers soon caught the eye of rock artist Ronnie Hawkins. After touring with Hawkins, Pat Travers made the jump across the Atlantic and snagged a record deal, releasing his self-titled debut album in 1976. The next year, the Pat Travers Band was born, featuring Pat Travers as vocalist and guitarist.
The live album Go For What You Know was a Top 40 hit in the U.S., spawning the single “Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights).” Follow-up album Crash and Burn dropped in 1980 and was an even bigger chart success, while the single “Snortin’ Whiskey” flooded American radio airwaves. At the time, Pat Travers was the hottest ticket on the Hard-Rock music scene. Even after some personnel changes, the Pat Travers Band was able to release 1981’s album Radio Active, followed by a successful co-headlining tour with Rainbow.
In 1982, Pat Travers released Black Pearl, which was more mainstream than his previous Hard-Rock works, but 1984’s edgy Hot Shot proved to be a return to form for Travers. With guitarist Jerry Riggs in the fold, the Pat Travers Band boasted an unrivaled guitar tandem. However, sans a record label, the late ‘80s were lean times for Pat Travers as he returned back to heavy touring and playing nightclubs. In 1990, Pat Travers signed with a small European label, releasing the solid School of Hard Knocks, which flew well under the radar.
With new label support, Pat Travers released the critically acclaimed Blues Tracks in 1992, followed by several more releases throughout the 1990s. Although Pat Travers’ early success could not be duplicated, his large and loyal fan base of “Hammer Heads” continue to flock for tickets as he tours and releases small projects from time to time.
