    Dave Is Life

    Dave Matthews music is the one thing that no matter what he says, or his music makes me feel, I can always relate it to my life in some, way shape or form. I am connected to it. His music touches me and moves me to do things and feel things in life. His concerts are my...

    DMB Saved My Life

    As a child and teenager, I always felt confused about who I was. I was supposed to have favorites-- favorite color, favorite food. I was supposed to know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I developed an eating disorder at 15 which stuck with me for a long time. ...

    I used to be really into the Dave Matthews Band.  Back in the late 90's and into the early 2000's, I was working for an ampitheater where DMB would play every summer.  So, I'd get to see his shows for free. I got to a point where I stopped listening to them for awhile...

    My Love Of DMB

    In 1995 my girlfriend told me to listen to them. I bought Under the Table and Dreaming. Well that was it. It is an addiction that is unexplanable. The music, the band, the songs, the fans, the energy, I have been going to their concerts since

    LeRoi Moore Will Be Missed

    I just saw that LeRoi, the sax player from DMB died.  That is very sad, they were a phenomenal live band and LeRoi was an integral part to their sound.  He will be missed.

    Hypocrite

    I love the DMB, but I always feel like a hypocrite when I listen to it since I work for an oil company.  I always love his boundless hope about making the world better and loving your fellow man.  I guess somewhere I have an inner hippie.
