A Proud MonkeyThe Best Dave Matthews Band Tribute
We’re the most passionate tribute to the music of the Dave Matthews Band that we think you can find on Earth. We strive for the most accurate sonic representations of the music and feel of a Dave Matthews Band show. Many of our stage instruments are visually identical to those used by the actual band throughout the last 25 years and when combined with a dedicated passion for the band’s music as we perform it provides an aesthetic that can only be replicated by the real thing. We dig deep into the band’s catalog, throwing out deep cuts mixed with their best-known numbers, as well as offering our versions of their covers. (Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylanetc).
