Dave Matthews Band

Dave Matthews Band (DMB) was started in 1991 in Charlottesville, Virginia. They created a new type of music that is a mix between rock, jass, bluegrass and hip-hop. DMB has been touring for twenty consecutive years. In 1997 the band won a Grammy for the song "So Much to Say." They have released seven studio albums and about 18 live albums. I was not a DMB follower until I attending a live show at the Gorge in George, Washington.  Their witty lyrics and eclectic sound keeps me coming back for more. From the start to the finish DMB puts on a show that grabs your attention. The atmosphere and stage presence of the band makes the experience fun and exciting. 

For more information the place to go is Dave Matthews band official website. There is a lot to look at on this site from news, tour information, photos, a brief history and many other things. The website even has a whole list of songs that can be played. Another thing about the website is there is a link to donate to their charity called Bama work fund.

This is a Youtube link to "Ants Marching," which is one of my favorite songs. It was released in 1994 on the album Under the Table and Dreaming. Another link from Youtube is to a more recent song, " Funny the way it is," which was released in 2009 on the album Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King.

The last website has listings of the most recent news about DMB and links to where to find the news articles. As a fan it is important to stay up to date with news and information about shows.
