Atlanta, GA - The Grammy-winning Dave Matthews Band, along with Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule, rocked out the Southside Tuesday night at sold out Aaron’s Amphitheatre. DMB formed out of Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991, founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, drummer Carter Beauford, and saxophonist LeRoi Moore.

Few people were sitting down, especially when the band busted out songs like “Big Eyed Fish” (from 2002’s Busted Stuff) and “Warehouse” off their 1994 debut, Under the Table and Dreaming. They kept things pretty upbeat considering many of their hits were a bit on the soft side, others nostalgia and taking you back to the first time you heard “Crash into Me.”

"I'm really excited about playing this year and not having a real plan other than trying to make the most of it and hopefully bring the best we can to the stage. And then next year, you know, hide behind a tree and hope that anyone that's hunting me doesn't find me." Mathew's said. Dave’s expressive, sensual vocals soothed the soul and could make his harshest critics fall head over heels.

The band’s chemistry was impressive. No one missed a beat, every single player had his chance to shine, and they even finished each other’s’ “phrases.” The horns added a distinct brassiness to the music’s high-quality aural textures, the string battles between Dave and violin player Boyd Tinsley were both hilarious and a sight to marvel, and Dave’s finger-picking and rocking out hypnotized.

I give DMB credit where credit is undeniably due — they rocked out and served up a mind-blowing performance that words cannot even describe. The passion of the musicians was evident all throughout, from the smooth rhythmic changes to the lyrical storytelling.

If you have not seen them yet this summer there is still time, however you better hurry because there will not be a 2011 tour as they announced in the spring. The well-deserved break will give him to tinker with some new material and recharge to come back even better than before! This is my second time having the honor of seeing DMB it seems the long hardships of the road have no effect on the band. Always smiling and ready to rock, let’s just say...they will have you on your feet the entire time screaming for more!
