With a career spanning 25 years, Dave Matthews Band is one of the most influential bands in rock history. Formed in Charlottesville, VA in 1991, Dave Matthews Band’s infectious and distinctive sound garnered lots of early attention and a die-hard loyal fan base, catapulting the band into one of the most successful touring acts of the past two decades. Vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews decided to put some songs he had written on tape and sought the assistance of drummer Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who were both accomplished jazz musicians in the local music scene. 16-year-old bassist Stefan Lessard and violinist Boyd Tinsley came on board shortly thereafter.
Renowned for its live performances, Dave Matthews Band has sold over 19 million tickets since its inception and ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade. The group’s Bama Works Fund, established in 1999, has raised more than $40 million dollars for humanitarian and environmental initiatives.
