Branford Marsalis Joins Dave Matthews Band in Charlotte, NC

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis sat in with Dave Matthews Band at Charlotte, NC’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Charlotte last night. Marsalis, who lives in Charlotte, emerged partway through the group’s set for the Under the Table and Dreaming tracks “Lover Lay Down” and “What Would You Say.” He returned at the end of the set for a third song from the album, “Jimi Thing.” Though Marsalis has never sat in with Dave Matthews Band, he performed with Matthews at Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam in 2006. The show was also notable for the band’s first take on “Minarets” since 2005.
