Boyd Tinsley stepping away from Dave Matthews Band

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Band Member News on 2/2/18 8:58pm

Boyd Tinsley is "stepping away" from the Dave Matthews Band. Tinsley announced via Twitter that he was "wrestling with a decision" regarding his status with the band. Tinsley said, "I need to take a break from the band & touring 2 focus on my family & my health 4 a while. I will miss you guys & my brothers in the band but Iím somewhat worn out & need 2 spend more time with my family & 2 bring more balance to my life. Thanks 4 ur Love"

You can see his tweet in full at the link.

Boyd first appeared with the band as a featured guest in 1991, and then officially joining the band in April 1992. Regardless, Tinsley is regarded as a founding member of the band and a key contributor, including a co-writing credit on the band's first Grammy winning song, So Much To Say. We wish Boyd all the success in his time away; and more importantly, thank you Boyd, for all you've done for DMB and us fans.

Check out Tripping Billies from Mexico

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 7/29/17 4:27pm

As Dave and Tim gear up for another show in in Mexico, the DMB Official YouTube page released a performance of Tripping Billies from the 2017 stay in Cancun.

Those shows were a blast, with rare performances of Rooftop, Dodo, and Raven all done in Dave and Tim style - just to name a few. There are still some packages available, so if you're free January 12-14, it's well worth the trip to brush up on your Espanol and head down to Mexico.

Live Trax 41 is great

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 5/17/17 3:55am

Fans got their ears on Live Trax 41, and they love it. If you haven't picked up a copy, you should consider it strongly. The show, 3.13.99, is a strong Dave and Tim performance featuring some unique performances, including Stay in a 6/8 time signature, and acoustic versions of The Last Stop and Halloween. If you're on the fence with this one, you might consider picking it up - those who've heard it love it. The release is one of the best in the Live Trax series. Seriously.

More Info on the Dave and Tim Mexico Excursion

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 9/13/16 9:24am

The 'year off' thing has begot its first show. Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds are playing in Mexico for 3 days, starting February 23. This 3-day event will be similar to the Dave and Friends island excursion in 2006 (that ended up happening on the boat) so it's not unprecedented.

The concerts will occur in the 'tourist' section of Mexico; the greater Cancun area. If you've never been that way, rest assured that pretty much everyone speaks English there so you won't be at a disadvantage if you don't comprende espanol. The way the packages are set up you really don't even have to leave the all inclusive resort(s) except to see the performance(s). Should you choose to do some adventuring in Mexico, it's a short drive to Xel-ha (pronounced shell-ha) - a wonderful lagoon with true brackish water (the freshwater is cold and the sea water is warm) and oodles of fish to see on a snorkeling adventure. Tulum is another short drive; it is a Mayan village with a small temple to climb if you choose. A bit further is the famed Chichen Itza with its pyramid temple.

The prices aren't for the squeamish; but keep in mind you are getting an all inclusive resort and 3-days of Dave and Tim music. And it's February and unless you live in a warm place like sunny FLA you will be elbow-deep in snow; and Mexico sounds pretty swell when you're shoveling 6 inches of partly cloudy.

Blenheim Vineyards Painted Series Vol 1

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Random Appearances on 7/23/14 5:29pm

Dave's fantastic winery, Blenheim Vineyards, is once again running a Dave and Tim music giveaway. As they've done in the past, if you order $50 worth of wine, they'll throw in the limited edition Painted Edition Vol. 1 EP! This year's tracks are Two Step from 3.14.99, Save Me from 7.15.12, and Old Dirt Hill from 7.15.12. The '12 songs are from a nifty little show from upstate New York, and the Two Step is from a beloved 1999 performance in San Rafael, CA.

The Painted Series EP is nice, but really the wine is worth every penny. If you've missed our heaping praise in the past, here's the tl;dnr version: Wine is fantastic. Buy it. Follow either link to order some wine shipped to your door (if you don't live in one of those freak states that doesn't allow wine shipped out of state), or stop by the winery and pick up some! If you're going to the Bristow, VA show Saturday, it's only a bit over an hour away right down 29. Tell em Ants sent ya!

DMBLive 3.3.99 Dave and Tim!

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 1/14/14 5:19pm

The Last Stop! Dave and Tim! OMFG! AHHHHHH! BEST DAY EVER!! The Last Stop!

OMG! Can't believe it! The Last Stop!

(that means the latest DMBLive release is 3.3.99, from the 1999 Dave and Tim tour. If I Had A Boat, Wild Horses, Halloween, I'll Back You Up, and Stay (in that crazy 6/8 time) are among the notables. I think Last Stop was played too, not too sure... have to double check on that.)

Dave and Tim in New Orleans in 2014

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 9/23/13 1:43pm

The first American dates are announced, but in a twist of sorts it's a Dave and Tim show. The Official Site announced Dave and Tim are playing January 15 & 16 in New Orleans. I'm contractually obligated to say Katrina because I mentioned New Orleans. The shows are at the Saenger Theatre, which re-opened in 2013 after an almost 8 year absence (don't need to say why, already covered it).

Tickets go on sale via The Warehouse September 24. If you're not a member of the Warehouse, well, you are missing out, but I'm tired of telling you this. Just get your tickets from Ticketmaster or from some guy with a sign that says "I need tickets" when clearly he means "I am selling tickets at a marked up price so I can buy booze".

Dave and Tim Sampler Available from Blenheim

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 7/2/13 12:07pm

Dave's good winery, Blenheim is offering up a Dave and Tim sampler with purchases this summer. And you've got a chance to get one signed by Dave himself. With a $50 purchase of their delicious wines, you will get a copy of The Boots; a sampler from the Dave and Tim 2011 show in Charlottesville. The featured songs are Bartender, Sweet, and Lying In The Hands of God. The Hands of God is especially good, but really, all 3 tracks are great. And the wine is fabulous as well, and worth it without even getting the CD. Head on over to the Blenheim Store , grab yourself some wine (I recommend the 2012 Chardonnay) and pop the top (really unscrew it..) and listen to some Dave and Tim!

Live Trax 23 And 24 Now Available!

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 11/9/12 8:10pm

The Warehouse announced the latest in the Live Trax series, and it's a double first. This is the first time a Live Trax show has been a Dave and Tim show, and additionally there is actually 2 releases!

Live Trax 23 is 2.19.96 in Durham, New Hampshire. If you're new to the planet, this show is considered one of the best Dave and Tim shows ever; featuring Hold Me Down and early Don't Drink The Water known as Weight Of The World (called Leave Me Praying on the release, but it doesn't matter, because it's one of the best versions of the song ever), and What Will Become Of Me. Also are the cover songs Angel From Montgomery. Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago, and Tangerine of note.

Live Trax 24 is 2.8.97 in Spartanburg, South Carolina. You'll hear a slightly different What Will Become Of Me from the other release, Dream I Killed God, Little Thing and an early version of Captain known then as Crazy (but called Captain on the release). The rarely played Let You Down is also on Live Trax 24, making both releases a collectors dream! Unless you're a bitter hater, than just take to the boards and complain with the rest of em. You know the drill by now.

Pre-Order begins now. We're not going to tell you to buy this, but it just doesn't get any better than this for those fans looking for multi-track sound board recordings of the rarest stuff out there.

Dave and Tim on Jack Johnson Kokua Festival Best Of Album

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 2/27/12 7:27am

Dave Matthews And Tim Reynolds will have a portion of their 2008 performance in Hawai'i officially released. The duo performed with Kokua Festival host Jack Johnson on Jimmy Buffett's A Pirate Looks At 40, and that is part of a Best Of release benefiting the Kokua Festival charities (and ignore the typo on "Matthews" in the write up). Also featured are Willie Nelson, Eddie Vedder, and Jake Shimabukuro - and if you don't know who he is, you should look him up, he's an awesome ukulele player. The album is available April 17.

A few other news and notes, The Warehouse ticketing window closes February 27 at 10 am, which may have already passed depending on when you're reading this. The public sale is March 9.

Dave And Tim This Weekend

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 11/18/11 9:25am

In case you forgot, Dave and Tim are playing in New York and Connecticut on the 18th and 19th, which quite possibly could be today if you're reading this in a timely fashion. The first show is the 18th in New York, and the 19th is in Connecticut (and don't forget about the pre-party!).

If you've never been to a Dave and Tim show, it's quite the chill atmosphere, or at least it tries to be. Far be it for me to tell you how to act in public, but basically you don't stand for the entire show, and since Dave has stories wound into the set list, so don't be "that guy" and scream "Play a song!" while Dave is telling a funny fable. Also, there are these little sheets of paper called "set lists" that the two come up with prior to a show, so you really don't need to scream "#41" between each song, they pretty much know what they're going to play. Other than that, have fun!

For Saturday, If you can't make it over to the Pre-Party at Westbrook Lobster, at the Oakdale, in the Xfinity Lounge, there is a pre-show buffett from 5:30-7. They'll have wings, sliders, a potato bar, etc. That cost is $30 and you can pick up advanced tickets here. The lounge is hosting an after-party as well (with beer specials!), so if you plan it right, you can hit both, or all 3 festivals, and the Dave and Tim show.

Dave and Tim Shows set for November

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 10/18/11 10:08am

The shows confirmed by numerous sources have finally received a confirmation officially. The Warehouse has two shows listed so far for Dave and Tim, November 18 at the United Palace Theatre in New York, and the following day in Connecticut at Toyota Presents Oakdale (aka the Oakdale Theater) in Wallingford, CT. The shows are not listed in the order page (yet), but in the "show detail" area. As in the recent past with Dave and Tim shows, justgive.org is the facilitating arm for charitable contributions for all proceeds for tickets. So before you start complaining about prices, it's all for charity. So relax.

Expect some more dates to be added (but don't get your hopes up, people of the south), and this isn't a true official announcement from The Warehouse, but more of a soft-notice. So be on the lookout for the big giant announcement from the official site "soon'.

UPDATE: Soon is now. You can officially request tickets for the first two shows now at The Warehouse.

TR3 Facebook Announces Dave & Tim Tour

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 9/16/11 11:36am

The Facebook page for Tim Reynolds other band, TR3 announced, it rather confirmed, there will indeed be a Dave & Tim tour in 2011. Rumblings have been around (if you were listening) that a South America Dave and Tim tour would occur, but speculation was the tour had gone the way of the dodo. Instead, our friends in Brazil are getting Dodo (get it?). That is, of course, if the wording of the Facebook post is insinuating that Dave & Tim and South America are two in the same.

The original rumors put the South America tour in October, but there is no indication of when this real tour will occur, or where for that matter. The distinguished DMB rumor monger will point out that DMB and east coast shows have been rumored too. And let's not short change the Vegas rumors too. So, what does it mean? It means that we will see more fake dates than Jan Brady had with George Glass between now and an official announcement.

UPDATE: TR3 amended their Facebook announcement to leave out the "Dave" part and throw in some "might's". Hope no one got called to the principal's office on that one!

Dave And Tim Sets Added to Governor's and Gorge - Live Trax 20 For Sale

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 8/11/11 10:12pm

Fans were wondering why there were not going to be Dave And Tim sets at the final two Dave Matthews Band Caravan stops. Wonder no more. The official site announced the duo will perform on the Sunday of each stop; that's August 28 and September 4 at Governors Island and The Gorge if you don't feel like looking it up.

Additionally, if you're one of the poor shleps who still hasn't joined The Warehouse, first allow me to mock you yet again. Mock Mock Mock. But fret not, the good people of The Warehouse have made Live Trax 20 available. If you've forgotten, that is a multi-track recording from 1993 of the band performing at the infamous Wetlands Preserve in New York. It's the earliest known multi-track recording of the band. You can pick it up at the DMBLive store.

Dave And Tim To Play Charlottesville

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 7/28/11 10:42am

The Official Site announced that Dave and Tim will perform in Charlottesville August 20. The special show ticket price will be directed to justgive.org, which in turn donates those funds entirely to the charity that you choose. If this sounds familiar, one of the Dave and Tim shows from 2010 functioned in the same way. Which explains the lofty price for tickets ($135 for lower bowl), it is all for charity. Warren Haynes is playing right down the road at the Jefferson Theater after the show, so fans can attend both. Tickets go on sale August 5, and members of The Warehouse can order July 29.

Dave and Tim Winter 'tour' Begins

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 12/6/10 5:54pm

The Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds tour that technically speaking isn't a tour begins in Seattle. The first two of the 'tour' are the special charity shows, where the $135 ticket is exchanged for a voucher to donate $150 to a charity of your choice through justgive.org. Of course, on paper, December 7th will be the last time for the good people of the greater Seattle people to see Dave for a year.

Or so... on November 30, Dave told the Seattle Weekly that the idea of playing The Gorge in 2011 isn't exactly without a doubt not going to happen. And we don't need to rehash the rumors so soon or define exactly what "tour" means or doesn't mean now, after all, we've got a full year of speculation to build up hype.

The Dave and Tim 'tour' wraps up December 11 in Las Vegas.

UPDATE: If some of you are having difficulty figuring out how to donate, use this link and follow the instructions.

Dave and Tim Add 2 December Shows for Charity

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 10/22/10 6:14am

Tickets are available now via The Warehouse, with the window closing November 1. The public sale begins November 6.

Dave And Tim Get A Vinyl Release

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Live Releases on 3/11/10 2:22pm

Dave Matthews And Tim Reynolds are contributing a release to Record Store Day. The release will feature Squirm and Lying In The Hands Of God, according to Radio Active Records, and will be a 7" Vinyl. That's a little record for those not in the know. Both songs were recorded live from the 2009 Dave and Tim Las Vegas shows. The vinyl goes on sale at specific locations (see below) April 17 and should be priced around $3.49 (or so).

Record Store Day is a celebration of independently owned record stores. That means non-chain. To find a local independently owned record store near you, use the Record Store Day search. Please note that not every store listed necessarily will have every release listed above, so contact the store you wish to visit to make sure they have the said vinyl(s) you want to buy. Especially the Dave and Tim one, which will certainly be a collectors item quite quickly.

Dave and Tim in 2010; DMBLive Info

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 12/3/09 9:27pm

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds are slated to play a benefit in 2010. According to an email from The Warehouse, Dave and Tim will perform May 20. 2010 at D.A.R. Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. to benefit Jane Goodall and her Jane Goodall Institute, which does great scientific work in Africa (Click Here for more info)

Tickets are available through The Warehouse beginning December 3 until December 7. The tickets are $95, but don't forget it's a fund-raiser, basically.

Also, you may have noticed that there is a new show in the DMBLive series, 1.27.93. This show has a rich history in the Live Release category. It was slated to be the second live release, after the Red Rocks release. It was eventually scrapped for whatever reason (the most common rumor was it was "too old"), and after briefly considering another show, the ultimate release ended up being Luther College Dave and Tim show. Besides being a hard-to-locate show, the show is also the first official release to feature the band when Peter Greisar was still in the group. If you haven't heard a show with Peter, this DMBLive release is a pretty good example of the typical sound of the band from 1992 to early 1993. Many songs that you're familiar with sound quite different.

Source: Vegas Show Would Be Dave and Tim

Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News on 8/20/09 8:28pm

Updating the earlier Vegas Show story, where The Las Vegas Sun reported on a possible Dave Matthews Band show in The Sin City in "October or November", a source familiar with the tour schedule tells antsmarching.org that the show is not for the Dave Matthews Band, but rather Dave and Tim. Logistically speaking, that makes more sense since the Vegas venue is only a 7000 seat arena, which would be a pretty good size for a Dave and Tim show.

As with everything in life, until the Official Site says something, it hasn't happened. And the leak of info has damaged venues potential shows (especially when they're not booked yet). Add in the fact that concert tours are very much subject to change (often...); however, the important part is that the potential concerts this fall - to some extent - are going to be Dave and Tim shows.
