Dave Matthews Band - Tripping Billies

DMB001Dave Matthews Band (also known by the acronym DMB) is an American rock band, originally formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991 by singer and guitarist Dave Matthews, saxophonist Leroi Moore, bassist Stefan Lessard, violin player Boyd Tinsley, drummer Carter Beauford, and keyboardist Peter Griesar (who left the band in 1993). All band members met Dave in Charlottesville. Since 1998 the band has performed at most of their shows with keyboardist Butch Taylor, who while not an officially named member of the band, is a fixture on stage. In 2005, the band added trumpet player Rashawn Ross to the stage. Moore, Beauford, Ross, Tinsley and Taylor also perform back up vocals.

In 1994, the DMB released their first LP, Under the Table and Dreaming, with hits "What Would You Say" and "Ants Marching." Under the Table and Dreaming and follow-up album, Crash brought the band national attention, culminating in a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for "So Much To Say," as well as four other nominations between the years 1996 and 1997. The band also achieved smash hits in "Crash Into Me", "Too Much" and a cult hit in "Tripping Billies".DMB002

By 1997, DMB reached amazing levels of popularity across the country and, to some degree, the world. To combat an increasingly profitable bootleg market, the band released a live album, Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95. This album featured popular songs from DMB's three previous albums and included longtime collaborator and guitarist Tim Reynolds. In late 1997, the band returned to the studio with producer Steve Lillywhite and an array of collaborators, including banjoist Béla Fleck, vocalist Alanis Morissette, guitarist Tim Reynolds, keyboardist Butch Taylor, and the Kronos Quartet, to compose and record Before These Crowded Streets, their third album with RCA. Before These Crowded Streets represented a great change in direction. Instead of relying on upbeat hit singles, the album as a whole stunned many with its layers and complexity.

DMB004In 1999 Dave Matthews released a duo live album, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Live at Luther College, from a 1996 acoustic concert played by Matthews and longtime friend guitarist Tim Reynolds, and the band released a live album, Listener Supported, a concert from September 1999 that was also partially shown on PBS. This year also provided two more Grammy nominations.
