Dave Matthews Band
With a career spanning 25 years, Dave Matthews Band is one of the most influential bands in rock history. Formed in Charlottesville, VA in 1991, Dave Matthews Band’s infectious and distinctive sound garnered lots of early attention and a die-hard loyal fan base, catapulting the band into one of the most successful touring acts of the past two decades. Vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews decided to put some songs he had written on tape and sought the assistance of drummer Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who were both accomplished jazz musicians in the local music scene. 16-year-old bassist Stefan Lessard and violinist Boyd Tinsley came on board shortly thereafter.
The group has since released eight studio albums and numerous live recordings, selling a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined since the 1994 release of its major label debut, Under the Table and Dreaming. The GRAMMY®-winning band’s many hits include “What Would You Say,” “Crash Into Me,” “Too Much,” “Everyday,” “American Baby,” “Funny The Way It Is” and “Mercy.” In 2009, the band released Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which paid tribute to founding member LeRoi Moore, who passed away in August of 2008. Dave Matthews Band has since welcomed longtime collaborators/touring musicians Jeff Coffin (saxophone), Rashawn Ross (horns) and Tim Reynolds (guitar) to the band. With 2012’s Away From The World bowing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Dave Matthews Band became the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart.
Renowned for its live performances, Dave Matthews Band has sold over 19 million tickets since its inception and ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade. The group’s Bama Works Fund, established in 1999, has raised more than $40 million dollars for humanitarian and environmental initiatives.
