Dave Matthews Band to play two shows at Fiddler’s Green
The multi-platinum selling jam band, Dave Matthews Band, released their latest album, Come Tomorrow, landing them an opening spot of number 1 album in the world with its release, on June 22. And now, they are returning to Denver for a two-show stopover at Fiddler’s Green on August 24th and 25th after a six-year hiatus.
According to Billboard, Come Tomorrow is Dave Matthews Band’s seventh straight studio album to debut at No. 1 — making them the only group to see seven consecutive studio albums bow at No. 1. The band’s hot streak dates back to 1998, when Before These Crowded Streets started at No. 1 — marking the group’s first leader.
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.
