The Dave Matthews Band is known for their trademark summer-long tours of the U.S. and Europe. Their concerts feature lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs with an elaborate video and lighting show, as well as a series of very popular supporting acts.
A South African and American rock band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991, the group’s founding members include: singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. Boyd Tinsley joined the band as a violinist shortly after. Moore was in an ATV accident and died of his injuries in August 2008. Jeff Coffin has since taken over on sax. Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds have also become touring members.
The band's 2009 album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, debuted at #1 on Billboard 200, giving the band their fifth consecutive number one debut. This also made them only the second band behind Metallica to accomplish this feat. After 20 consecutive years of touring, the band took the summer of 2011 off.
Their most recent album, Away from the World, was released in September of 2012 and also debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, the band’s sixth release to do so which tied them with the Eagles for the most #1 albums in the chart’s history. As of 2012, the Dave Matthews Band has sold an estimated 30 to 40 million albums worldwide. The band has also won one Grammy Award. (Source: Wikipedia.com)
The group was recently awarded the NAACP Chairman’s Award. According to presenter Julian Bond, "they sell out the largest arenas on Earth, but frequently give their music away.”
