Dave Matthews Band hosted their annual multi-night run at Saratoga Springs, NY’s Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Saturday and Sunday nights. Galactic opened both shows and, on Sunday night, members of the New Orleans band joined Dave Matthews Band onstage. Near the end of Dave Matthews Band’s show, Galactic saxophonist Ben Ellman and touring Galactic trombonist/Rebirth Brass Band member Corey Henry sat in on “Can’t Stop.” It marked the first time either musician has joined DMB onstage, though both Ellman and Henry have performed with DMB horn players Jeff Coffin and Rashawn Ross in a variety of settings. The evening also featured Dave Matthews Band’s first “JTR” since July 13, 2010 as well as their first take on “Recently” since July 8, 2010.
Dave Matthews Band will perform at Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on Tuesday.
