UnCategorized Dave Matthews Band, sometimes shortened to DMB, is an American jam band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. Founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, drummer and backing vocalist Carter Beauford, and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. In August 2008, LeRoi Moore died due to .plications from an ATV accident. Grammy Award-winner Jeff Coffin, of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, has since filled Moore’s spot as the band’s saxophonist. Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds have also be.e full time touring members of the band. With musicians who each have roots in differing genres, including jazz, classical, soul, rock, bluegrass, and hip-hop, the band has .e together to create an eclectic sound which has earned them fans from a variety of quarters. The band is known for their annual summer-long tours of the US and Europe, featuring lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs, ac.panied by an elaborate video and lighting show. This portion of the tour has be.e a stamp of DMB and has grown with the band since Fenton Williams began in the early 1990s. The band’s newest album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King debuted at number one on Billboard 200, giving the band their fifth consecutive number one debut, making them the only band besides Metallica to do so. The band has won one Grammy Award, and was awarded the NAACP Chairman’s Award. According to Julian Bond, "they sell out the largest arenas on Earth, but frequently give their music away." The band released their first live EP, entitled Recently, in 1994. The album’s five tracks were taken from shows performed at The Birchmere, in Alexandria, Virginia, and from Trax, in Charlottesville. Recently was re-released by RCA Records in 1997. On September 20, 1994, DMB released their second album, Under the Table and Dreaming, featuring their first .mercial hits "What Would You Say" (featuring John Popper on harmonica), "Satellite", and "Ants Marching". The album was dedicated "In memory of Anne" for Matthews’ older sister Anne, who was killed by her husband in 1994 in a murder-suicide. Under the Table and Dreaming and its follow-up album, Crash brought the band national attention, culminating in a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "So Much to Say" as well as four other nominations between the years 1996 and 1997. The band also achieved hits with "Crash into Me", "Too Much", and "Tripping Billies". By 1997, DMB reached unparalleled levels of popularity across the United States and, to some degree, the world. On October 28, 1997, the band released their first full length live album, Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95. The album, which was recorded at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, featured popular songs from the band’s first three albums and included longtime collaborator Tim Reynolds on electric guitar. In late 1997, the band returned to the studio with producer Steve Lillywhite and an array of guest collaborators, including Reynolds, banjoist Bela Fleck, vocalist Alanis Morissette, percussionist Aaron Carman, future permanent keyboardist and unofficial sixth band member Butch Taylor, and the Kronos Quartet. They .posed and recorded Before These Crowded Streets, their third album with RCA, which was released on April 28, 1998. The album represented a great change in direction for the band as they did not rely on upbeat hit singles to carry the album. "Stay (Wasting Time)", an uplifting gospel number, and "Crush", a love ballad, became very popular tracks along with the lead single "Don’t Drink the Water". Dave Matthews has .mented that the inspiration for this song came from the treatment of Native Americans by the United States government. On January 19, 1999, Matthews and Reynolds released the live album, Live at Luther College, from a February 6, 1996, acoustic concert played by Matthews and Reynolds at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. The album features songs mostly from DMB’s first two albums, while also featuring the previously unreleased pieces "Deed Is Done" and "Little Thing". Also included on the album is Reynolds’ acoustic virtuoso piece "Stream." During the summer, the band took part in the Woodstock ’99 concert and then released their third live album, Listener Supported, in the fall. The album, a live recording, used a show performed at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey on September 11, 1999 for a PBS television special. The album was also released as the band’s first DVD. The year also provided two more Grammy nominations. Dave Matthews Band will not be touring during 2011 so they can spend time with their families. This is the band’s first time in their twenty years of touring that they will take a year off. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
