Description

The name says it all: The Dave Matthews Tribute Band. Many go to this band’s live shows with reservations, high expectations and the burning question, “Do these guys sound like the real Dave Matthews Band?” Almost always the answer is, “Yes!” Hailing from Chattanooga, TN, The Dave Matthews Tribute Band is the only nationally touring tribute to the Dave Matthews Band. This 6-piece ensemble strives to pay homage to its famous counterpart by matching the excitement, energy, intensity, and intimacy of a DMB live show.

“We have so much respect for DMB and what they’ve been able to accomplish,” says lead singer Ryan Clifford. “As fans, we love getting together with others to celebrate and give tribute to DMB and their music.” The Dave Matthews Tribute Band has worked hard to bring musical expertise and an energetic stage presence to provide fans with a true DMB experience. “The whole basis of the band is to put on a musical play,” says Clifford. “We try to recreate the experience you may get from the real band.”

While most fans have never experienced a live DMB show before Matthews and crew became the platinum-selling artists they are today, The Dave Matthews Tribute Band prides itself on giving audiences this opportunity at intimate venues across the country. Beyond mastering the DMB sound and the relentless touring, what separates The Dave Matthews Tribute Band from other cover bands is its passion, love, and respect for DMB and its music. That is what makes you come out of one of this band’s shows saying, “Yeah, they really do sound like the real Dave Matthews Band.”
