Next year DMB are to celebrate a 20th anniversary. For this purpose a DMB fan and freelance writer Nikki Van Noy is writing a book following the art of the band from their earliest years up to Dave Matthews Band 2010 tour. She’s currently travelling and talking with DMB fans in Europe and wants to make the connection between the band and their fan-base the main focus of her book.
But despite being here for a couple of decades, Dave Matthews Band is no strangers to the new technologies or at least they make the most of them. The latest achievements in 3D technology and precise post production have been provided by Evergreen Films and Integrated Media Technologies for the filming of "Larger Then Life In 3D: Dave Matthews Band."
Emmy-award-winning director and founder of Evergreen Films Pierre de Lespinois helped create a digital 3D movie that will take fans straight onstage and will show them a full 360 degree view of Dave Matthews Band performances. Their 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival appearance is in the centre of the film that will be released in theatres later this year.
Fans shouldn’t miss the band’s latest release, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, dedicated to the late band member saxophonist LeRoi Moore who died following complications from an ATV accident.
Dave Matthews Band is also one of the bands to provide tracks for a free download organized by the Bonnaroo music festival, NeadCount, and the environmental activist group NRDC Action Fund. The Best of Bonnaroo album’s aim is to encourage young people to speak out on climate change and help a future climate change bill pass legislation in the U.S. Senate. Before downloading, an option is available for fans to email their senators or their local newspaper supporting the bill. Even if they decide not to write the email, fans can still download the 17 original performances of DMB ("Rapunzel"), Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, O.A.R., the Decemberists, Guster, Gov't Mule and more.
Another non-profit organization, Farm Aid, whose members are Dave Matthews Band, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp, will celebrate their 25th anniversary. The event will be marked with a fundraising concert but the date, location and lineup are yet to be announced. The theme for the musical fundraiser is "Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America." According to Nelson, the American farmers are the hope for the nation in times of such economic downturn. Buy cheap Dave Matthews Band tickets to enjoy their shows live in your city.
