  • DMB Live Trax Vol. 35: Post-Gazette Pavilion
    Item #: DMDD132
    This June, 2009 show at Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown, PA finds the band mid-support of its new album Big Whiskey And The Groo Grux King, dedicated to the life and legacy of LeRoi Moore. Although this is the first complete tour without the venerable Moore, the band still finds its groove having been on tour throughout the spring.

    The setlist balances both older fan favorites alongside new numbers from Big Whiskey. Every song is delivered well and with a certain element of playfulness. Carter’s drumming is on fire and especially lyrical on Big Whiskey tracks Funny the Way It Is and Why I Am; the crowd is engaged and happily singing along to a nearly 14 minute version of The Stone; Tim Reynolds and Jeff Coffin deliver huge performances while trading licks on Crush; Dave does a great cover of Rye Whiskey, a traditional favorite; and Time Bomb and offer a fiery match made in encore heaven. The band takes masterly command on this now-classic show at one of their most visited venues.

  • DMB Live Trax Vol. 34: Deer Creek Music Center
    Item #: DMDD129

    In 2015 DMB will play their 35th show at Klipsch Music Center, making it their third most visited amphitheatre. We are pleased to announce June 24, 1999 as the 34th volume of the Live Trax series and celebrate this essential Summer Tour stop. This is the first show released from the venue formally called Deer Creek Music Center and closes the three-night run. This is also the first Live Trax release of the 1999 Summer Tour, which featured the still recent Before These Crowded Streets repertoire mixed with deeper cuts from the catalog.

    Opening with an older run of songs highlighted by LeRoi Moore's stunning work on Jimi Thing, The Best of What's Around and Proudest Monkey, the band shift into the dark Daniel Lanois cover For the Beauty of Wynona - one of the last full band versions and released only once before in the Live Trax series. The show's climax begins with a version of Granny with Dave singing unique improvised lyrics before an abruptly-ended Warehouse and set closing Ants Marching. Following an expanded version of Typical Situation, Dave takes Drive In, Drive Out to another level of intensity that just has to be heard; a perfect encore to end a fantastic run at Deer Creek.

    We have selected a third disc of bonus material from June 22 and 23, 1999 at Deer Creek that includes songs that had then been recently reinserted into set lists such as Cry Freedom and #40. The package concludes with a version of The Last Stop that you won't be able turn up loud enough.

    This show, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, marks the beginning of DMB’s powerful onstage presence with noticeable refinement and serious drive. A classic setlist, the 2nd night of this two night stand at Lupo’s opens with the quiet intensity of Seek Up and builds throughout the set as the band moves onto Minarets, Dancing Nancies and Warehouse. To round out this release we’ve added a selection of standouts from the first night of the run including an unreleased gem from the band’s venue soundcheck.

    Please note - Downloads will be available on May 5.

  • 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.

  • Live Trax Vol. 32 CD or Download
    Item #: DMDD122
    Dave Matthews Band performed three shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA on August 22-24, 2014. The Saturday show of the celebrated weekend has been chosen as Live Trax 32 and will be released in its entirety as a 1-DVD / 3-CD set.

    The August 23rd Greek show features never-before-released acoustic material and showcases the band’s intimately cohesive, high-spirited live delivery of their music. Highlights of Live Trax 32 include the tour's acoustic debut of One Sweet World and the first live release of If Only. Rhyme and Reason with Stefan on stand-up bass and Jeff Coffin on flute and the funky, infectious groove of Recently are also noteworthy. Electric set stand-outs include the set opening #41 followed by When the World Ends and Rooftop and an explosive Grey Street which brought the energy of an encore during mid-show. The Lovely Ladies contributed in large part to the Berkeley magic, joining the band for tremendous vocals on Everyday, You and Me and Burning Down the House. The show-closing Rapunzel was a nice surprise ending to a stellar evening with the band.

  • DMB Live Trax Vol. 31: Tweeter Center at the Waterfront
    Item #: DMDD118
    6.23.2001 Tweeter Center at the Waterfront - Camden, NJ

    On the heels of the Everyday album release, Dave Matthews Band embarked on a four and a half month long tour that featured Butch Taylor on keys, the Lovely Ladies on vocals and a run of almost twenty stadium shows. In late June, DMB brought their big stadium sound to the Tweeter Center at the Waterfront in Camden, New Jersey for three shows. We are happy to announce the standout June 23rd show as the next release in the Live Trax series, which includes an additional disc of highlights from the rest of the weekend.

    Highlights of this second night include several rarities. Grace is Gone features the original prelude that had never been heard live and in its entirety by the general public until this night. This release also includes the Live Trax debut of Mother Father as well as a cover of Phish's Waste, and one of the most beautiful solo intros to Satellite that we’ve heard to date.

    In addition, we have carefully selected a number of tracks to highlight the shows on June 22nd and 24th in Camden, NJ. This bonus disc features tour showpieces like the Big Eyed Fish > Bartender suite, fan favorites with a different twist (Minarets with the Lovely Ladies guesting) and hidden gems like Lover Lay Down, which might be the answer to "what was LeRoi's greatest moment on stage.”

    Please note - Live Trax vol. 31 will be released on September 16, 2014. Downloads will be available on September 16.

  • 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."

  • Live Trax Vol. 30: The Muse
    Item #: DMDD114
    The latest Live Trax series installment is drawn from three August '93 shows at The Muse on Nantucket Island. Around this time, the band was starting to multitrack a handful of their live shows with the hope of using the material to create their first album, Remember Two Things (11/9/93). None of the material on this Live Trax release has been released until now!

    The band recorded portions of the three night run at The Muse. However, technical issues prevented the band from capturing all three shows in their entirety. What has been mixed and mastered is representative of a relatively new band bringing its increasingly potent live show to a new brand of listener. It’s easy to imagine the band writing and performing all summer on the island as you listen to spot-on renditions of songs that are now classics.

    This compilation of The Muse shows has it all - from the first notes of Satellite to the last notes of the raging Halloween encore. Lie In Our Graves features LeRoi’s screaming sax solo; Pay For What You Get takes us back to the song’s roots as a Dave and Carter duo. Minarets>Blue Water is a powerful pairing that doesn’t exist much of anywhere in its full form. Hearing the segue here in this environment is a real treat.

    Live Trax 30 is a perfect companion to the reissue of Remember Two Things and takes the listener to a certain place and sound in DMB history. There couldn’t be a more comprehensive picture of what it was to witness the band at this time.

  • Live Trax Vol. 29: Blossom Music Center
    Item #: DMDD113
    For the next installment in our Live Trax series, we have selected one of the standout shows of the early 2013 Summer Tour. On June 1, 2013, the band brought a flawless and especially unique show to the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Highlighted by a mix of newer songs and classics with several performances unique to the tour, it contains the first rebranded performance of Kill the Preacher (improvised in 2012 as an introduction to Why I Am) as well as the first ever performance of the Some Devil song Oh at a full band show.

    The show opens with the classic Dancing Nancies - Warehouse combination - a first in over 15 years. What follows are songs recently returned to the rotation, such as the Idea of You (after its 2012 hiatus) and the setlist rarity Captain, as well as older fan favorites such as Say Goodbye, a late set Big Eyed Fish - Bartender combination and an extended Recently.

    Live Trax 29 is the first live show in the series to feature songs from the Away From the World album, released in 2012. As such, this release includes the debuts of Gaucho, Belly Belly Nice and Rooftop, all in their road-ready forms.

    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.

  • Live Trax Vol. 28: John Paul Jones Arena 3-CD or Download
    Item #: DMDD110
    In May 2010, Dave Matthews Band announced that they would take a break from touring the following year for the first time in 20 years. With the break looming, the last two hometown shows on November 19-20, 2010 at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA became two of the most anticipated in the band's history. Both shows met all expectations! We are proud to release the first night of this epic weekend in its entirety on 3-disc CD, and for the first time in the Live Trax series, on DVD as well. This is the First Live Trax mixed in surround sound.

    Highlights of the first night in Charlottesville include three special guests. Frequent guest Joe Lawlor sits in on electric guitar during #41. Longtime contributor and friend John D'Earth guests on Warehouse and Trombone Shorty joins John and the band on Jimi Thing. Other setlist highlights include rarity Spoon, played for the first time in over two years, and one of only three full band versions spanning late-2003 to Summer Tour 2013. This Spoon is one of the longest and widely considered, most famous versions performed to date. Blackjack is the first full version we have released to-date. The show has a seasonal flavor with performances of Christmas Song and the show-closer and complete surprise - Halloween. Neither song was planned that night.

  • Live Trax Vol. 27: Luna Park
    Item #: DMDD109
    Ahead of Dave Matthews Band's return to South America in December, we're excited to announce their October 14, 2010, show at Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as the 27th volume in the Live Trax series. Luna Park, a covered stadium built in 1932 is one of South America's most famous indoor venues. It has hosted events as diverse as James Brown, Pavarotti, Frank Sinatra, the Pope and several world basketball championships over the years.

    This was just the second time DMB had played in Argentina and their first headlining show there. But the crowd was one of the most energetic the band has ever encountered. Throughout the show, the crowd chanted between nearly every song, giving off the vibe of a football match. Dave even commented: "Y'all do one, we do one, y'all do one, we do one. I like this arrangement." He also remarked that "coming down here and playing for y'all is like getting on a crazy fast motorcycle or riding on a crazy horse." Rashawn and Jeff picked up on the "Olé, Olé, Olé" chants, too, interpolating the melody into Proudest Monkey. The band's setlist consists of a wide range of songs from nearly all of their albums. Highlights include the one-two punch of Big Eyed Fish » Bartender in the beginning of the set, #41 in the middle, and a scorching Two Step to wrap it up.

    A full audio recording of this show has not been available until this release.
