One of my favorite bands of time is the Dave Matthews Band. They have a unique sound that is hard to compare with other acts. They are considered a jam band, but are quite different from other stereotypical jam bands such as Phish and the Grateful Dead. Each member of the band is a virtuoso on their instrument. However, two members shine above the rest of them. They are Carter Beauford (drums) and Leroi Moore (sax/wind instruments). These two gentlemen have perfected their given instruments.
If you are just getting into the Dave Matthews Band for the first time, I would suggest starting with their earlier material such as Under the Table and Dreaming or Crash. These are absolutely the place to fall in love with the band. If you have been into the band for a while and are looking for something different I would suggest any of their live concert albums. A must have for all fans is Live at Luther College. It is a duet album with Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds. You’ll hear your favorite songs in a way you would never imagine.
I would also suggest going to a concert of the band as well. You will absolutely get your money’s worth. The band plays for over 2 hours and takes your favorite songs in a totally new direction. I have personally gone 10 times and thoroughly enjoyed each show that I have gone to.
The members of the Dave Matthews Band include Dave Matthews (guitar), Stefan Lesard (Bass), Leroi Moore (sax/other wind instruments), Boyd Tinsley (Violin), and Carter Beauford (Drums). Their albums include Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash, Before These Crowded Streets, Everyday, Busted Stuff and Stand Up. They have also released several live concert albums as well. There are just as many live albums as there are studio albums.
