Jeff Coffin To Join DMB, Sit in with UM, MMJ

Jeff Coffin has confirmed that will join Dave Matthews Band in 2009. The Flecktones

saxophonist started subbing for an injured LeRoi Moore this past June and
has been in talks with the group’s management about signing on in a more
official capacity since Moore’s death this past August. In a message
posted on his site, Coffin says:
_There have been many people asking and, yes, I will be joining Dave
Mattews Band starting in 2009. I am honored to be asked to be part of such
a fantastic group of musicians and people and am looking forward to making
some great music! Thanks to all the many for their support and
encouragement. See you out there._
Coffin will perform with Umphrey’s McGee at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre
this evening. He will also sit in with My Morning Jacket at New York’s
Madison Square Garden on New Year’s eve. As some readers may remember,
Coffin was part of the horn section My Morning Jacket employed for its
four-hour performance at Bonnaroo. Sex Mob’s Steve Bernstein will also be
a part of My Morning Jacket’s horn New Year’s Eve horn section.
