Hoffman hoped Matthews could shop the songs in order to find other musicians to perform on some studio work with him. Hoffman encouraged Matthews to approach Carter Beauford, a local drummer on the Charlottesville music scene. .Beauford had been in several bands and was then playing on a jazz show on BET.^ The band recently played what is likely their final full show of 2009 in the Bahamas for the Bud Light Port Paradise Cruise .

Moore's former bandmate, John D'earth, conductor of the University of Virginia Orchestra and local musician, taught music at the Tandem Friends School. Stefan Lessard, a junior bassist at the time, was under his guidance in the student jazz combo, Yabanci Jazzites. On the recommendation of John D’earth, the 16-year-old Lessard was asked to join in the studio to help complete the demo. While the partnership was never intended to continue beyond the studio, the four liked the sound and decided to continue together for live performances as well. Consequently, regular practices began in the basement of Carter Beauford's and Matthews' mother's home.
Peter Griesar was a bartender at Miller's beginning in 1989, and in August 1991, during Miller's annual respite for inventory, Matthews, Beauford, Moore and Lessard used the empty bar for rehearsing. Griesar heard them rehearsing and decided to stop working for a while, pulled out his harmonica, and started playing with them. After a few songs, he was invited to perform with them. He immediately accepted, becoming the band's first keyboardist. Griesar's last show with the band was March 23, 1993.
Boyd Tinsley was the last member to join the band. .Although he had performed on the demo with Matthews, Moore, Beauford and Lessard, he was busy with a couple of other bands at the time (Boyd Tinsley Band and Down Boy Down) and did not want to commit to a group of musicians that were only together in the studio at the time.^ Moore LeRoi Moore, Saxophonist for Dave Matthews Band, Dead at 46 Details of the recent unexpected death of LeRoi Moore, of Dave Matthews Band, and a tribute to his contributions to their work.

He didn't become a full-time member until the middle of 1992. Matthews later admitted,[7] "We had no plans of adding a violinist. We just wanted some fiddle tracked on this one song "Tripping Billies", and Boyd was a friend of Leroi. He came in and it just clicked. That completely solidified the band, gave it a lot more power."[7]

Early years

.The band's first in-studio demo was recorded in February or March 1991, and consisted of "The Song That Jane Likes," "Recently," and "Tripping Billies" prior to Tinsley joining as a full-time bandmember.^ With forty-four full shows released now, Ants Marching has been released the most (34 times, including 27 of the 44 full shows).

Tinsley only performed on "Tripping Billies."[9]
Their first public show was at the city's 1991 Earth Day Festival.[8] Local weekly appearances soon followed, and within a short time word of the band’s sound spread.[10]
They still did not have a name for the band. One name that was thrown around was Dumela (which is the Tswana word for "hello",[11]) but no real enthusiasm was ever felt, and they dropped it.[12] One story is that Moore reportedly telephoned a place they were booked and said to just write 'Dave Matthews.' .The person receiving the call just wrote 'band' after the name, and the name stayed Dave Matthews Band from that point on.^ Dave Matthews Band info .

For a variety reasons, like sensing that the band was on the verge of making it big, not wanting to have his life ruled by the grueling schedule that touring musicians often face, difficulties communicating with Matthews, and maintaining the mortgage on his new home, Peter Griesar decided to leave the band after a show at Trax nightclub on March 23, 1993, a night known as "Big League Chew".[14][15]
.On November 9, 1993, DMB released its first album, Remember Two Things, on its Bama Rags label,[16] later re released by RCA in 1997.[17] Live songs on the album were recorded at The Flood Zone in Richmond, Virginia on August 10, 1993, and The Muse Music Club on Nantucket Island on August 16–18, 1993.[citation needed] The album debuted on college charts as the highest independent entry, and went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA in 2002 [18] — a significant accomplishment for an independent album.^ Remember Two Things lyrics .

This EP featured the first recorded version of Bob Dylan's classic "All Along the Watchtower" and "Halloween." Recently was re-released by RCA Records in 1997.
On September 20, 1994, DMB released their second album, Under the Table and Dreaming, featuring their first commercial hits "What Would You Say" (featuring John Popper on harmonica), "Satellite," and "Ants Marching." The album was dedicated "In memory of Anne" for Matthews' older sister Anne, who was killed by her husband in 1994 in a murder-suicide.
Under the Table and Dreaming and its follow-up album, Crash brought the band national attention, culminating in a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "So Much to Say" as well as four other nominations between the years 1996 and 1997. The band also achieved hits with "Crash into Me," "Too Much," and "Tripping Billies." While the band enjoyed growing commercial success and the devotion of fans, they received comparisons to jam band legends like The Grateful Dead.[19]
By 1997, DMB reached unparalleled levels of popularity across the United States and, to some degree, the world. .On October 28, 1997, the band released their first full length live album, Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95.^ Live At Red Rocks 8/15/95, Disc 2 lyrics .

Heavily influenced by personal conflicts, notably the death of Matthews' uncle from alcoholism, the songs recorded with Lillywhite rank as some of the darkest he has ever written. In the end, the studio sessions were scrapped and the band's seven-year relationship with Lillywhite was over.[citation needed] Some believe DMB was unhappy with the atmosphere of the songs and frustrated with Lillywhite's often perfectionist style of production, while others believe Lillywhite was made into a scapegoat for the band's lack of professionalism during the recording sessions. Or, as Matthews was quoted as saying, he was in a depressive state and BMG kept asking him for happy music.[citation needed]
In October 2000, an energized Matthews began writing with Glen Ballard, most famous for his work with Alanis Morissette. .The rest of DMB (along with special guest Carlos Santana) soon joined Matthews in a Los Angeles studio and quickly recorded Everyday.^ Marching Bands LeRoi Moore of Dave Matthews Band Dies LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of the popular Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly in Los Angeles.

Certain songs such as "What You Are" and "When The World Ends" kept a darker edge to them, and have been more well received by older DMB fans.[citation needed] "Everyday" was also familiar to older DMB fans, as the main guitar lick is derived from that of the song "#36."[citation needed]
In March 2001, the Lillywhite conflict came full circle when the 2000 studio sessions with the producer were leaked over the Internet. The tracks spread quickly over established Internet channels such as Napster. Collectively known as The Lillywhite Sessions, these tracks were lauded by both the fan base and the popular press. After critical comparison of the two simultaneous albums, fans that were less than pleased with Everyday's slicker sound were frustrated with the band's decision to scrap the work in exchange for Everyday.[citation needed]
The Lillywhite Sessions would, however, eventually be officially released. .In response to overwhelming fan support, coupled with a popular and widely publicized online campaign known as the Release Lillywhite Recordings Campaign, DMB returned to the studio in 2002 to record Busted Stuff.^ Busted Stuff (Lillywhite Sessions) lyrics .

Produced by Stephen Harris, the recording engineer who worked under Lillywhite on previous albums, the resulting CD provided new treatments of much of the Lillywhite Sessions' material, along with newly written songs "You Never Know" and the single "Where Are You Going" which was subsequently used in the movie Mr. Deeds. Busted Stuff hit the shelves on July 16, 2002, receiving moderate critical and commercial success, while being generally well-received by the band's fans.[citation needed]

Taping and bootlegs

Dave Matthews Band allows audience members to record most live shows and permits non-profit trading of the recordings.[54] The band cites college students trading these tapes in the early 1990s as a key reason for their current fame.[citation needed] Up until February 23, 1995 the band allowed tapers to plug directly into the soundboard at shows but after profiteering on these often high quality tapings, the taping policy was changed to only include microphones.[54] The band and its management also worked with the US federal government in 1996 to launch a crackdown on for-profit bootleggers, which resulted in large-scale arrests of those responsible for illegally manufacturing and selling copies of DMB material..June 2007" style="white-space:nowrap;">[citation needed] To further combat bootleggers,[citation needed] the band released their first live album, Live at Red Rocks 8.15.95, to satisfy the demand for live recordings.^ Live At Red Rocks 8/15/95, Disc 1 .
