Is Dave Matthews a famous person?

This yr marks the 25th anniversary of the discharge of “Beneath the Desk and Dreaming,” the debut album by the Dave Matthews Band, which has offered six million copies.

Since that point, Matthews has offered one other 20 million of so information. What’s extra, he nonetheless can appeal to tens of hundreds of followers to a reside present, as occurred Friday night time, when the Dave Matthews Band was the headlining act on the southernmost of the three most important levels inside Tom Lee Park for the opening night time of this yr’s Memphis in Might Beale Avenue Music Competition.

Regardless of these credentials, Matthews appears extra rock Everyman than rock famous person. Earlier within the day, audiences had seen the lead singer of the Glaswegian band Chvrches take the stage in a pink tutu, whereas the Los Angeles metallic combo In This Second staged a glam witches’ sabbath full with a choreographed revue of horny/scary nuns posing in entrance of satanic pentagrams. However the South African born Matthews, 52, arrived in a charcoal grey T-shirt and darkish slacks. Together with his receding hairline, his shortish beard, his self-consciously comedic Invoice Cosbyesque funky dance strikes and his earnest but jokey demeanor, he may have been one of many suburban dads who appeared to make up an excellent proportion of the viewers.

Even so, that viewers was surprisingly various. The group included different musicians (Guitar Shorty’s backup band hightailed it to the other finish of the park to see Matthews after their very own Blues Tent efficiency ended) and fairly a couple of little youngsters, whose dad and mom might have been stunned when Matthews’ set included a canopy of Prince’s “Horny Mom****er,” with Memphis’ personal Kirk Whalum on saxophone. Launched by Matthews as “a buddy of ours who hearkens from this a part of the world,” Whalum joined the seven-member Dave Matthews Band on three numbers in all, boosting a horn part that already boasted Rashawn Ross on trumpet and Jeff Coffin on sax. (The opposite band members included lead guitarist Tim Reynolds, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer Carter Beauford and the relative newcomer, keyboardist Bobby Sturdy.)

Matthews additionally coated Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” (acknowledging an artist whose vocal fashion and “world beat” preparations are an apparent affect), and allowed considered one of his personal songs to segue into Junior Walker and the All Stars’ “Shotgun.” Largely, nonetheless, he caught to his personal catalog, extending an albums’ price of songs right into a two-hour time slot, because of the quite a few solos of the backup instrumentalists and generally even Matthews himself, whose chiming strum might symbolize pop music’s most “mainstream” adaptation of South Africa’s distinctive guitar sound.

Lots of the numbers grew to become sing-alongs, as viewers members mouthed the phrases to “What Would You Say,” “Ants Marching” and different hits. One important hit was omitted, nonetheless: Matthews exercised his artist’s prerogative and selected to not play what could also be his most well-known tune, “Crash Into Me,” maybe as a result of the creep issue of its Peeping Tom lyrics is difficult to disregard within the #MeToo period. 

By the tip of the two-song encore, the scattered rain drops that had been hardly noticeable throughout the present had been falling with sufficient frequency that the viewers started to match the performer on stage in dampness. “Typically there isn’t any level in dressing properly,” Matthews mentioned, mopping sweat from his face and once more sounding extra like a dad than a rock famous person. “I simply find yourself trying like a moist canine anyway.”
