Dave Matthews Band - Funny the Way It Is

Dave Matthews Band (DMB), is an American pop-oriented-jam version of the Grateful Dead crossed with elements of jazz, funk, and the worldbeat explorations of Paul Simon and Sting. The band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. Founding members were South African vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, violinist Boyd Tinsley, drummer Carter Beauford, and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. With musicians who each have roots in differing genres, including jazz, classical, soul, rock, bluegrass, and hip-hop, the band has come together to create an eclectic sound which has earned them fans from a variety of quarters.

The band is known for their annual summer-long tours of the US and Europe, featuring lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs, accompanied by elaborate video and lighting and tonight Dave Matthews Band will perform at sold out Arenan here in Stockholm. Im sure it will be a great evening.

Todays tune "Funny the Way It Is" and is the first single from the seventh studio album "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King" which was released on June 2, 2009.

Funny the Way It Is performed by DMB at The Beacon Theater on 6.1.2009

Note :

Dave Matthews Band allows audience members to record most live shows and permits non-profit trading of the recordings. The band cites college students trading these tapes in the early 1990s as a key reason for their current fame. 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.

In recent years it has been common to see several sources per show, sometimes as many as five or more. As microphones and recording equipment have become more inexpensive and of higher quality, the quality of tapings has improved.
