The band has mostly stayed with original music, though a handful of covers like Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The Years” and Dick Dale’s “Pipeline” slipped into the mix. The band also busted out a cover of Beastie Boys’ instrumental track “Groove Holmes” in the middle of set one, night two, played for the first time in over 300 shows!UM continues to bring some of the most energetic shows around, and with the Colorado crowd in attendance, the band is truly doing it right.

Once they got going, the band started to take flight. With Pennal Johnson on bass, and Dee Mill, the guitarist and vocalist from the Peoria based band, Art of ILL Fusion, the performance last Friday, May 20th at the Country Club BBQ was smoking.With about every space indoor and outdoor venue occupied, the vibe in the club was high from start to finish, and the capacity crowd was eating it up. The band played two electrifying sets, which included a range of funky covers from The Meters , Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, and KC and The Sunshine Band, and Phish. They also took on high energy versions of Particle’s “Launchpad” and “Metropolis,” as well as two new Marcinek originals, “George” and “Slink,” which will be on Marcinek’s new album.The improv sections of the evening went far into space, and were maxed to their potential by Marcinek and Mill’s soaring guitar work, Molitz’s mastery of his signature jam-tronic sound, and the ever present, funktifiying low end being held down by Pennal Johnson. This show really seemed to catch the vibe of the “sit in” or the super jam and the fans in attendance were all dancing and weaving their way through the musical madness.Highlights of the night included Hann busting out the vocals on KC’s “Boogeyman” and Stevie Wonder’s “Masterblaster”, multiple bass solo break downs, and Marcinek and Mill playing guitar together as if they’d been doing so for years. The extra special guest of the evening was Peoria guitar virtuoso, Roy Ponce from the band Brainchild, who joined the band for a absolutely amazing cover of “Jan Jan” by Grant Green. After the show, the band members expressed their thorough enjoyment for the night of music, and are considering making it a pre-Summer Camp annual tradition. Let’s hope they do! This group needs to play more shows soon.Check out videos, full audio, setlists and more below!

The set included Dead favorites “Scarlet Begonias”, “Uncle John’s Band”, “Shakedown Street” and a heavy-hitting “Terrapin Station” to close things out. Fans were treated to husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi for “Mr. Charlie” and “Sugaree”. You can listen to the full set below, courtesy of taper quinfolk:
Fans of Dave Matthews Band have been reeling since the group wrapped up their summer tour last weekend at The Gorge. What is typically an annual celebration of all things DMB was marked by a sadder, nostalgic tone, as the band is planning a hiatus that will last for a year and presumably throughout all of 2017.Fortunately, for fans longing for some live Dave, there is a solution. Back in May, the band kicked off their summer tour with an extravagant 25th anniversary concert in their hometown of Charlottesville, VA. The concert, which raised over $1 million for local charities, saw the DMB debut three new songs and bust out other big hits for an incredible evening of music.If you missed out, TNT Drama will be airing the performance as part of their State Farm Neighborhood Sessions series, coming to televisions everywhere this Sunday, September 11th, at 10/9c. You can head to the TNT website for more information, and the website will also host a rebroadcast of the special beginning on September 12th.You can also watch a behind-the-scenes video of the DMB members below in anticipation!
