Dave Matthews Band Favors Warren Haynes Band and Blue Oyster Cult
A classic “Cortez”: Warren Haynes with DMB in Central Park
The middle show of the Dave Matthews Band Caravan at the Gorge Amphitheatre saw some of the day’s performers join the host group. Four members of the Warren Haynes Band took the stage with DMB over the course of the headliner’s set. First up was Haynes, who joined in for “Cortez The Killer,” as he has done on multiple occasions over the years. A bit later, sax player Ron Holloway appeared for “Jimi Thing,” while Alecia Chakour and Nigel Hall guested on “Stay.” The encore saw Dave Matthews Band cover Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear The Reaper,” a song that bassist Stefan Lessard had previously performed with Yukon Kornelius, his side project that also features Adam Gardner (Guster), Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies) and Eric Fawcett (N.E.R.D.).
