This weekend was a special occasion for me as I attended my first Dave Matthews Band concert ever. I have been a huge fan for many years buying every cd and dvd the guys release. For one reason or another, I just never had the opportunity to attend a show. First of all, the show was an incredible experience as they played Vanderbilt Stadium on a weather perfect evening in Nashville. Dave worked it like it was going to be his last show ever. What an incredible showman! There was one thing that puzzled me though and that was the addition of Tim Reynolds. I love the acoustic stuff Tim has done with Dave in the past but this rock guitar thing just felt out of place. Tim also looked out of place among the rest of the band. Never thought I would see a Flying V guitar on stage with Dave Matthews. They also featured him way too much. I would rather hear Boyd Tinsley go off on the violin or Dave throw down some acoustic lead than hear Tim Reynolds play out of place sounding rock guitar. I guess there has to be some reason they have added this awkward element to the show? Anyway, glad for the experience and looking forward to the new record!
