Dave Matthews @ Fiddlers (BYO GA lawn)
August 23 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm MDT
Another great band big in the 90s is back on tour @ Fiddlers: Dave Matthews Band. Grab a lawn seat for Friday. Doors open @ 6:30 but I’ve posted meet up time for 6 so we can get in line early and grab decent seats. Show starts @ 8. Any who can get in line even earlier to help grab seats it would be great! Tickets went on sale 2/22 and will sell out fast for Friday. Saturday sold out by 4 pm. Check out flash seats for resale closer to the date if you miss out with the original sale. I also have this cross posted with my Denver live music meet up.
The Dave Matthews Band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, in early 1991, when vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews decided to put some songs he had written on tape. Instead of simply recording himself with a guitar, he opted to bring in some instrumental help to give his musical ideas more depth. Dave found assistance in drummer Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who were both accomplished jazz musicians in the local Charlottesville music scene. Based on the recommendation of distinguished local jazz guru John D’earth, 16-year-old musical prodigy Stefan Lessard came on board to play bass. Completing the band was keyboard player Peter Griesar, who left the band after a couple of years, as well as the talented and classically trained violinist, Boyd Tinsley.
