Dave Matthews Band Hint at Butch Taylor Sit In at Charlottesville Concert

Dave Matthews Band return to the stage tonight after their year-long hiatus for a hometown benefit, A Concert for Charlottesville: An Evening of Music and Unity, and a couple of the band members seem to be hinting at a reunion with an old friend and collaborator.

Saxophonist Jeff Coffin posted a photo on his Instagram last night (see above) that appears to feature longtime DMB keyboardist Butch Taylor on stage with the band as they prepare for tonight’s concert. Bassist Stefan Lessard later posted an in-studio photo of the band on his Twitter (see below) which again appears to feature a partially blocked Taylor in the corner.

Taylor was never an official member of the DMB but played with the group on tours and albums from 1998 through 2008 when he parted ways with the members, and he has not taken the stage with them since. The keyboardist now lives in Charlottesville, where tonight’s concert is taking place, and regularly plays at Miller’s Downtown, where DMB famously got their start.

A Concert for Charlottesville will also feature music from Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton, The Roots, Ariana Grande, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Cage the Elephant and more. The event will be available via live stream starting at 5:55pm ET. More information can be found here.
