About Dave Matthews

Dave Matthews Band emerged from the jam-band underground of the 1990s to become an enduring American musical institution. Steeped in the progressive, multicultural sounds of the '80s -- they spliced bar-band college rock with the jazz and worldbeat explorations of Paul Simon and Sting -- the group built a following through traded cassettes of live performances. Where the Dead concentrated on psychedelic explorations, DMB was groove based, anchored by fusion drummer Carter Beauford and given slippery life by Matthews, a singer/songwriter who specialized in exuberant exhortations and moody introspection. Between 1994's Under the Table and Dreaming and 2009's Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King, they were mainstays on the adult alternative rock charts. No matter how many hits or changes in lineup they had, DMB remained road warriors, returning to the studio on occasion to release such new albums as 2023's Walk Around the Moon.
