On June 17th, Morrison Hotel Gallery will honor Dave Matthews Band's 25th anniversary with an immersive photo exhibit spanning the band's quarter century history. The show will feature the collected work of the band's favorite photographs and photographers. The exhibit will be open to the public from June 17th thru July 10th. All images in the exhibit are available for purchase at www.morrisonhotelgallery.com. During that time, the band will be playing in the region as part of their summer tour, but will be taking a break from touring in 2017.
Dave Matthews Band formed in Charlottesville in early 1991 when vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews sought out a few local musicians - including drummer Carter Beauford, saxophonist LeRoi Moore, bassist Stefan Lessard and violinist Boyd Tinsley - to help him record a demo of some songs he had written. RCA Records signed Dave Matthews Band and released its first studio album, Under The Table and Dreaming, in 1994. Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 - Before These Crowded Streets, Everyday, Busted Stuff, Stand Up, Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King and Away from the World.
The photographers showing in this exhibit will be C. Taylor Crothers, Danny Clinch, Rene Huemer, Sam Erickson, and band member Stefan Lessard.
