Dave Matthews Band Welcome Tower of Power

As previously reported, Dave Matthews Band will release the new studio album Away from the World on September 11. In addition to DMB touring members Jeff Coffin, Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds, the album features contributions from Tower of Power keyboardist Roger Smith. On Wednesday night, Smith crossed paths with Dave Matthews Band once again when Tower of Power opened for the arena-size band at Tampa, FL’s 1-800-ASK-GARY Amphitheater. During Dave Matthews Band’s set, Smith also sat in on the Away from the World track “If Only.”

Dave Matthews Band are slowly debuting the album’s songs live. Most recently, the band introduced “Belly Belly Nice” in Burgettstown, PA this past Saturday. Tower of Power will open for DMB once again in West Palm Beach, FL this evening.
