  • DMBLive Madison Sq Garden, New York, NY 10/3/1996
    Item #: DMDD147
    So Much To Say about the band’s first full set performance at the legendary Madison Square Garden! The show, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year could not be more high energy. Fueled by the supportive fans of New York City, DMB delivers powerful versions of every song on the setlist, including the debut of the jam "Anyone Seen the Bridge?” with Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing guesting for an improvised scat over it that gets the crowd screaming. The band follows up with all out versions of Tripping Billies, Drive in Drive Out, and Ants Marching to finish out the set. The encore has a treat in the form of a rare acoustic solo version of All Along the Watchtower.

  • DMBLive Georgia Theatre, Athens, GA 4/6/1994
    Item #: DMDD143
    The Georgia Theatre, formerly an old cinema, was a prominent music venue in Athens, Georgia. It played host to many up and coming acts in the early 90’s including Dave Matthews Band, who performed there 11 times between August 1992 and October 1994.

    A highlight from this show includes a jam that the fans dubbed “Me and Her” and it’s origins are from a soundcheck at the band’s previous show at The Georgia Theatre in February of 1994. This song never reappeared at another concert or on any subsequent recordings.

    Other highlights from this great soundboard recording include an early version of Rhyme & Reason and a high energy rendition of What Would You Say, which both appear later in 1994 on the band’s major record label debut release, Under The Table And Dreaming.

    A special thanks to John Ferguson for this recording.

  • DMBLIVE - Trax 2/22/94
    Item #: DMDD139
    2.22.94 Trax Charlottesville, VA
    After cultivating their local following, the band’s hard work started to pay off as they spent more time performing outside of Charlottesville and the Commonwealth of Virginia. This show marks their last performance at Trax, and the beginning of extensive touring that would take the band across the nation and around the world. The room’s energy is palpable and the musical delivery spot-on in this recording. This 17-song show hits many favorites and sweet spots, including a 13 min+ show-opening “Seek Up.” Only available as a two-track recording, this performance is a perfect companion piece to Live Trax 37 - the band’s first multitrack recording at the same venue a year prior.

  • DMBLive First Union Center, Philadelphia, PA 11-30-1998
    Item #: DMDD137
    This DMBLive from Philadelphia’s First Union Center in 1998 comes from one of the most popular tours in DMB history. The show features all founding members and Tim Reynolds, plus Butch Taylor on keys for all but 5 songs. And Bela Fleck sits in on the killer set opener Last Stop, as well as other songs throughout the show, including a nearly 15 minute Two Step with Bela and Tim masterfully trading licks. Stay (Wasting Time) features LeRoi’s powerful horn -- busting through near the end of this tune to take it home. I’ll Back You Up and a fantastic Warehouse seal the deal in the encore.

    This particular Fall 1998 performance only exists as a two track board mix, but the musical prowess and energy of the evening still shine through. A great sound has been captured. Even 17 years after the last notes of the tour, it’s still one for the books.

  • DMBLive Georgia Theatre, Athens, GA 10/14/1994
    Item #: DMDD130
    On October 14, 1994, DMB played it's 8th and final concert at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. Although this show has been widely circulated as a bootleg, for the first time fans will hear this recording in its entirety with the never before heard Seek Up, a funky and audience-aided Recently, and the night's encore, Halloween, which features a “best of” list like Carter drum solo. LeRoi’s performance is stunning - especially his interplay with Dave on Lover Lay Down and his soaring highs on All Along the Watchtower. Other highlights include an on point version of the short-lived Get In Line and Carter’s incredible pocket and backup vocals on The Song That Jane Likes. This Georgia Theatre show showcases a lot of character and Dave and Carter’s vocals really compliment each other beautifully throughout.

  • DMBLive The Academy, New York, NY 4/5/1995
    Item #: DMDD125
    This special acoustic show, originally aired as a live radio broadcast, has some of the most intimate live versions of now classic Dave Matthews Band material we’ve ever heard. The show starts with a steady moving Recently which flows deftly to Water Into Wine>Lie In Our Graves, but the real highlight comes mid-show as the band runs through the first public performance of #40. The recordings, though missing the first part of Warehouse, deliver such energy that we had to include every bit of it that was available.

  • DMBLive Trax Nightclub, Charlottesville, VA 7/28/1992
    Item #: DMDD117
    This set, the earliest release of the band's career in the DMBLive series, features a very new, but very solid, DMB with all original members including Peter Griesar on keys. It’s obvious the band feels comfortable here at Trax in Charlottesville, VA, their original stomping ground. This can be seen when Dave introduces "Satellite" as a song by Elvis, or when the band members stop to say hello to Dave's sister, Jane, before playing the now classic tune “The Song That Jane Likes.” You can feel the vibrant energy of a band certainly on the rise.

    "The Best of What's Around" starts as a slower, blusier version than its present day form and heads straight into a smoking version of "Help Myself." Early in the set "Jimi Thing" gets the full funk treatment and everyone gets a turn to cut loose - from Boyd on violin, to Peter on keys, to LeRoi “Doctor X” Moore on the saxophone - and closes out with a group singalong vocal. The relatively new and beautifully stripped down "Seek Up," with flourishes from Carter and LeRoi, serves as a nice intro into "Typical Situation." Other highlights in this release include Dave solo on "Drive In, Drive Out," "Lie In Our Graves," and a very rare cover of Led Zeppelin’s "Tangerine."

  • DMBLive J.T. Kingsbury Hall, Salt Lake City, UT, 3/3/1999
    Item #: DMDD112
    3.3.99 J.T. Kingsbury Hall, Salt Lake City, UT

    In January 1999, Dave and Tim embarked on their longest tour - 39 shows spread across the country, largely played in theaters and college auditoriums. Unique versions of older songs, new covers and tracks from Before These Crowded Streets – performed acoustic for the first time – played a prominent role in the tour setlists. For our next DMBLive, we have selected our first show from this tour - a stop at Kingsbury Hall on the University of Utah's campus.

    Highlights of this release include the first Dave and Tim version of The Last Stop (a song that the duo has only played one other time) and Stay (Wasting Time). The Dave and Tim performances of these songs mark the first ever release by the duo! Also included is an early version of Bartender that at this point was beginning to resemble the song that it would become, and Seek Up, which contains the outro that outside of this tour has only been performed during full band shows. Finally, new covers exclusively played during this tour include Lyle Lovett's If I Had a Boat & The Rolling Stones' Wild Horses. Those two songs, along with both of Tim's solos, also make their live release debut. 3.3.99 J.T. Kingsbury Hall, Salt Lake City, UT, has been digitally mastered and is available in its entirety.

  • DMBLive Palace Theatre, Albany, NY 2/8/1995
    Item #: DMDD108
    Dave Matthews Band toured with opening acts Big Head Todd and the Monsters and the Ugly Americans in the winter of 1995. We’ve selected the 2.8.95 show at the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY for our next DMBLive release, a show currently not available in the trading community. The show is classic DMB for the time period, each of the songs a bonafide standard from the band’s catalogue. Highlights include show opener One Sweet World followed by Two Step and Ants Marching, which have been played as show closing songs in more recent years. The sound of this Palace show is great, from the chaotic apex of Dancing Nancies to the intimately playful Pay For What You Get. Additional old school highlights include a jammin’ Jimi Thing, a solid Satellite and the fast and furious Tripping Billies show closer.

  • DMBLive The Revolver Club, Madrid, Spain 3/25/1995
    Item #: DMDD106
    DMBLive 3.25.1995 The Revolver Club, Madrid, Spain

    To continue to bring you previously unheard, recorded material, we have selected Dave Matthews Band’s performance from March of 1995 at The Revolver Club in Madrid, Spain. The band delivers a solid set to the expats and native Spaniards in attendance beginning with a charged Seek Up that works straight into Two Step.

    At an early stage in the band’s popularity in Europe, the crowd in attendance sings along to the songs in this first audience mic recording to be released. Highlights of the show include Lover Lay Down, Tripping Billies and Ants Marching. The crowd begins chanting Ole’ and the band joins in, jamming along and illustrating the great time they were having and the strong connection formed with the fans that night in Madrid. 3.25.1995 The Revolver Club, Madrid Spain has been digitally mastered and is available in its entirety.

    Item #: DMDD105
    Highlights of this show include the first public #41 preceded by #40 and a substantial mini set of Recently>Water into Wine>Lie In Our Graves. This show marks the band's first return to the Southeast after a lengthy time away, touring in Europe and elsewhere around the US. The show is comprised of solid performances from each band member in front of a lively audience. This particular release is a restoration of sorts, being a mix of the soundboard and an incomplete multi-track recording. 4.7.95 Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, NC has been digitally mastered and is available in its entirety.

  • DMBLive Masquerade Nightclub, Tampa, FL 3/2/1994
    Item #: DMDD95
    The 3.2.94 show from The Masquerade Nightclub in Tampa, FL (the historic Rivoli then Ritz Theatre, now the Ritz Ybor) is the band's first performance at the venue during their first tour dates in Florida. DMB received a great reception from the audience.

    Highlights of the show include a classic Warehouse with supporting vocals from Carter and, as always, one-of-a-kind playing from LeRoi. Hard hitters from the show include Tripping Billies, Pay For What You Get and a solid rendition of Help Myself. Minarets features Carter and Dave’s scatting intro and ends with its typical feverish finish with a segue into Typical Situation. What Would You Say is funky and tight and keeps the crowd hollering. Ants ends the show with a rousing finish. The 3.2.94 show has been digitally mastered and is available in its entirety.
