Dave Matthews Band Reviews
Todaystheday from Indianapolis, Indiana
Overall, Dave played an energetic and youthful performance along with the rest of the band. I had so much fun and do hope to see them again in 2019!

I've seen DMB a >dozen times at DeerCreek (now Ruoff) and must sadly admit, the band acted like they got into a huge argument before walking on stage. None of Dave's typical stories, not much inter-play between band members, the horn section just stood around talking between themselves when not playing, and Boyd Tinsley was def missed!!! Perhaps it was bc we had Pit Tickets and they oversold / over packed the pit to the point pushing and shoving kept occurring during the show, including a near fight right in front of us. The Pit was waaaay too large. We were 12-15 rows deep and historically, I've sat much closer than that for a lot less money. Ruoff is to blame for that, not DMB. But the sound and stage and behavior of the band was overall very flat. Def my most disappointing experience at DMB in over 10 years. I typically walk out of his shows so pumped I've followed them to other states on their tour. Not this year. We all have off nights....perhaps this was one?

My first DMB concert. Long time fan, and like the last reviewer I have most of the discography, including some Dave and Tim only. Overall, the show was amazing, as expected. The set list favoured the new songs and Under the Table, which I was ok with. With so many songs to choose from it would be easy to say I wish I heard this or that. But that's an unreasonable expectation. I absolutely loved the extended jams, something often missing from studio production. And Tim's electric work was fantastic. My only disappointment was not hearing a few more acoustic tunes mixed in, hence my 4 rating. Maybe too harsh, my apologies.

I LOVE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND BUT WAS ACTUALLY DISSAPOINTED
Saw him in 2016. Have most of his albums, In general I absolutely love him and the bands sound. This was the first time I was to see him live and took by whole family 7 of us on my nickel. It was dissapointing that he played very little of the songs I have come to love. Did a LOT of jams, and by a LOT, I mean a LOT! I will likely continue to buy his albums, but not lay out the kinda cash to see all the jams. Hey tunes don't even have to be A sides, B sides would be fine. I am cool with promoting new material for a new album too, that's just good business, I get it, and support it, but maybe a few less jams and a little more from the portfolio. With respect RM
