Do You Like Dave Matthews?

#49242 3 years, 1 month ago
i'm watching Dave Matthews on Farm Aid, and once again I feel like I want to be liking what I'm hearing a lot more than I am. He seems like such a nice guy, and there's not really anything wrong with the songs or the music, but it just doesn't ever grab me. Am i missing something?

I like Dave Mathews...but I LOVE his band members. The drummer and the fiddle/flute player really make the band so amazing. They are my favorite attribute to the band.

Dave rocks. I have seen him play 7 years in a row in Tampa. This is the first year we wont see him since I moved here. Now I wouldn't follow him around the south like furthur but some people do. All of his band members are awesome. I generally like most music so maybe I am the wrong one to ask. But DMB is the bet thing going other than furthur imo. Should get out and see him. Be sure to get good seats.

I like dmb. I used to love to see him in late 90 early 2000. No going to see him at the shoreline is not so interesting. I fee like all his shows are the same and doesn't bring that energy. I do like the fiddler they have. The best of what's around is a good cd
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

I don't care for him and never felt that vibe I'm looking for in his music. A friend of mine once told me he bashed the Jamband community. I'm not sure exactly what he said. And my friend told me this a few years back....Dave was doing an interview or something and he said he doesn't like playing at the campout music festivals and he talked bad about the people who go there and stuff. I don't really remember but after that he rubbed me even more the wrong way!

I forgot who it was he was with when I seen him in Mansfield, MA at Farm Aid but I thought it was great - just him and another guy on acoustics ...... never really listened to him other then that but that set smoked for sure

I like a few of his songs but overall he doesn't move me. I've seen him live a couple of times and while the musicianship is undeniable, the sound just leaves me a little cold. I did like that solo tour he did a few years back with Trey on lead guitar. That just added a whole new vibe and in that context I thought Dave was pretty great. Did an amazing cover of Tell Me Something Good by Rufus.

Dont know too much about DMB, but I've heard Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds is good.
