Dave Matthews Band
Oceans of Fun. Backyard barbecues. Dave Matthews Band at Verizon. These are the elements that make for a quintessential Kansas City summer. DMB hasn’t issued a proper studio album since 2002’s Busted Stuff, but a number of solo releases (including a full-length outing from the group’s namesake) and live projects have kept the quintet in the public eye. And though the fever pitch that once surrounded DMB seems to have subsided in recent years, the group rightfully remains one of the world’s top-drawing live acts, capable of turning 20,000 concertgoers into rabid Dave-otees.
