Old and New Friends Take Part in DMB Homecoming
Dave Matthews Band returned to its hometown of Charlottesville, VA over the weekend for two shows at the John Paul Jones Arena. On Saturday, trumpeter John Dearth, an early collaborator of the band, took the stage for a lengthy segment that included Recently, Crush, the new song Spaceman and Cornbread. In addition, Robert Earl Keen banjo player Danny Barnes sat in on both Cornbread and Spaceman both nights and Jimi Thing on Saturday. Barns lends his considerable skills to a number of tracks on the forthcoming Dave Matthews Band album _ Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King_. The groups tour will continue this evening at Pelham, ALs Verizon Wireless Music Center Birmingham.
