Dave Matthews Band

Formed in the early '90s by South African vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews, the Dave Matthews Band presented a more pop-oriented version of the Grateful Dead crossed with elements of jazz, funk, and the worldbeat explorations of Paul Simon and Sting. Matthews populated the group with several Virginia-based musicians -- bassist Stefan Lessard, saxophonist Leroi Moore, violinist Boyd Tinsley, drummer Carter Beauford, and, initially, keyboardist Peter Griesar -- and the band built up a strong word-of-mouth buzz by touring the country constantly, with special attention paid to college campuses. Griesar left the lineup in March 1993, but the Dave Matthews Band moved ahead in his absence, releasing the independent album Remember Two Things later that year and issuing a live EP, Recently, in 1994. After fielding offers from major labels, the band signed with RCA and released the debut effort Under the Table and Dreaming in September 1994. By the following spring, the record had launched the hit single "What Would You Say" and sold over one million copies, thus setting the stage for Dave Matthews' successful career as both bandleader and solo musician.

A year and a half after the release of Under the Table and Dreaming, the record had sold over four million copies in the U.S. alone, propelled in part by the success of "Ants Marching" and "Satellite." The Dave Matthews Band responded by releasing 1996's Crash, which entered the charts at number two and quickly went platinum. The group spent the bulk of 1996 touring in support of the eclectic album, which reached multi-platinum status and spun off five successful singles, including the Grammy-nominated "Crash into Me." That same year, Matthews launched an attack on bootleggers in conjunction with the federal government, targeting stores that were selling semi-legal discs of live performances. The efforts of Matthews, his band, and his management resulted in an unprecedented crackdown on for-profit bootleggers in early 1997 -- with nearly all of the major foreign bootlegging companies placed under arrest by the United States -- thereby putting a moratorium on the entire underground industry.

To further combat the bootleggers, the Dave Matthews Band released an official double-disc live album, Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95, in the fall of 1997. It was an unexpected success, debuting at number three on the charts and selling a million copies within the first five months of its release. The live record paved the way for a string of future DMB concert recordings; it also drummed up support for the April 1998 release of Before These Crowded Streets, the group's most ambitious album to date. Another two-disc live effort, Listener Supported, followed one year later, and summer tours kept the band busy as the decade drew to a close.

The new millennium, however, saw the band returning to the studio with producer Glen Ballard to record a fourth studio album, Everyday, which was issued in February 2001. Although notable for its slick, mainstream-minded sound -- not to mention the presence of electric guitar, which Matthews had never used on previous albums -- it was overshadowed by rumors of a darker album that had been recorded with Steve Lillywhite in 2000. Although the original album was rejected, the band eventually chose songs from those sessions, re-recorded several others, and released the results in July 2002 as Busted Stuff. Its debut single, "Where Are You Going," fared well on national radio, and the band rounded out 2002 with the release of Live at Folsom Field in November.

Several years after releasing Live at Luther College, a concert album that did not feature his band, Dave Matthews released his first proper solo album in 2003. The moody and brooding Some Devil was supported by a Dave Matthews & Friends tour -- the "friends" being Trey Anastasio, Brady Blade, Tony Hall, Ray Paczkowski, and Tim Reynolds -- and the album's chief single, "Gravedigger," earned Matthews a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. Boyd Tinsley also released a solo album that year, but the Dave Matthews Band reconvened shortly thereafter, releasing two additional live albums (The Central Park Concert, The Gorge) and returning to the road in 2004. The bandmates also joined Bruce Springsteen's Vote for Change tour toward the end of the year, just as their mail-order-only Live Trax series debuted. In early 2005, they launched a website that featured progress reports on their next album in the form of video footage, diaries, and soundbites. When the flawed Stand Up finally appeared in May, it was the band's first album of all-new material since 2001's Everyday. Like its three predecessors, Stand Up topped the charts, making DMB the only band other than U2 and Metallica to score four consecutive number one albums.

Weekend on the Rocks, another live set, followed Stand Up at the end of 2005, and a two-disc compilation entitled The Best of What's Around, Vol. 1 collected studio material and unreleased live recordings one year later. Matthews and Tim Reynolds launched another joint tour in 2007, canvassing Europe and North America in the process. A performance from the latter continent was featured on the album Live at Radio City Music Hall, which served as a companion piece to 1999's Luther College. Meanwhile, the Dave Matthews Band released their own concert album, Live at Piedmont Park, and began working on new material, although the project was temporarily shelved during pre-production as the band diverted its focus to touring. The musicians returned to the studio the following year, but LeRoi Moore unfortunately passed away before the record could be completed. The saxophonist had suffered a serious ATV accident in June and ultimately succumbed to his injuries two months later. Former Béla Fleck saxophonist Jeff Coffin joined in his place, and the band heralded his inclusion with the release of Live at the Mile High Music Festival, a three-disc set capturing a Colorado performance from that summer.

Early the following year, the Dave Matthews Band paid tribute to Moore with Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King, another successful record for DMB that wound up garnering two Grammy nominations. Two live albums -- the Tim Reynolds duet record Live in Las Vegas and the DMB set Live in New York City -- appeared in 2010, with two more DMB releases, Live at Wrigley Field and DMB 2009: Lucca Italy (Live at Piazza Napoleone 5 Jul 2009), issued in 2011.

Despite the archival album releases, 2011 was a quiet year for the Dave Matthews Band, marking the first time the group did not tour in 20 years; instead, they played a handful of festival dates. DMB came back in a big way in 2012, reuniting with producer Steve Lillywhite for the album Away from the World, which was released in the fall of 2012 and found the band returning to its classic '90s sound. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I think the Everyday album is a little underrated. Sure, it was a departure from the Steve Lillywhite sound but that doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing. Also, I think the comments should be about DMB and their music instead of politicians who listen to the children.

Ants Marching: I love this song. Have a good day everyone. Off to work. PEACE, LOVE, AND HAVE FUN.. Vote Hillary... she listens to the children. Literally.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However, if you don't post this, you will be injured, but not die, in two days. Now you've started this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done, press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

I love Dave, he makes me feel so many different emotions, and they are all good. He makes beautiful music, and he is a beautiful person. He doesn't have to be one of those typical "superstars" that has 10 different cars and 3 girlfriends. He is a kind considerate person that deserves the fame he has.
