Last Friday, Dave Matthews Band headlined a club-size benefit for The China Care Foundation in Greenwich, CT. The China Care Foundation was founded by area-resident Matt Dalio to save the lives of Chinese orphans and to bring young Americans in contact with Chinese culture and children in need. The members of Dave Matthews Band offered an 18-song set that relied heavily on hits like “Ants Marching,” “Funny the Way It Is,” “Crash (Into Me)” and “Stay.” Approximately 90-minutes into Dave Matthews Band’s set, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff joined the group onstage for his songs “Many River to Cross” and “The Harder They Come.” The performance marked the first time Cliff has sat in with Dave Matthews Band.
“The difference tonight will make in so many lives is immeasurable,” Dalio said at the end of the evening. “I am so appreciative for all the support my Foundation has received and that so many people can enjoy this, boaters included!”
Dave Matthews Band will perform in Camden, NJ this evening.
