Happy 20th Anniversary Dave Matthews BandPosted by Jake Vigliotti in Band Brand at 1:54pm on Monday, Mar 14th, 2011
It's hard to believe that until not too long ago, we all thought that the very first Dave Matthews Band show was on that cool date of 4/20 (1991). But now we know the truth.
March 14, 1991, a group of guys that looked more like a bus stop than a band sauntered on stage at the now-legendary (by their own hand) Trax Nightclub and played their first live show. The band had only been playing together for a bit over a month or so when they did play that first gig.
The entirety of the early 1991 shows is a bit of a mystery; we know of this show, the 4/20 show, the first paid gig, and a surprise party for Stefan. We're not even exactly sure when the band started playing their weekly gigs at Eastern Standard.
But it was 20 years ago that Dave Matthews Band got their start. And after 20 years, they, and we, are still here dancing.
