SANTA BARBARA IS FOR LOVERS: DAVE & TIM

Words by: Forrest Reda :: Images by: Mark Davidson

Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds:: 10.28.06
Santa Barbara Bowl :: Santa Barbara, CA


Dave & Tim :: 10.28 :: Santa Barbara
On a gorgeous autumn night at the Santa Barbara Bowl, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds provided a soundtrack for friends and lovers.

Dave's voice was raspy from a trip to Las Vegas, but this beautiful imperfection fit with the storyteller vibe of the show. Sitting on a chair with long-time collaborator Tim Reynolds, Matthews hand-picked songs from his catalog, and the crowd loved every choice he made and every story he told. Perhaps in a nod to Vegas, the lone cover-song was an interlude into Elvis Presley's "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You."


Dave Matthews :: 10.28 :: Santa Barbara
Dave Matthews debunks the rock star myth with self-deprecating humor, but it's impossible to watch him and not think he's a special artist. He's experienced huge success but tours relentlessly, whether with his band or in a variety of other musical projects. Fans love them all, and this incarnation was a perfect fit with the surprisingly intimate Santa Barbara Bowl – a well-rounded three hours of music from the bottom of his heart. Including the encore, Matthews played straight until the 10pm curfew, taking only a short break while Tim Reynolds showcased his immense guitar skills.

Matthews introduced songs by telling the crowd who they were written about, "I'm a family man," he confessed at one interval. Matthews dedicated songs to his stepfather, grandfather, and during the poignant encore, his "Sister."

DMB standards like "Dodo," "Jimi Thing," "Lie In Our Graves," "Crash Into Me," and "Ants Marching" don't lose anything when performed acoustically. While this is partly due to their structure, Tim Reynolds provides more than just acoustic guitar; he creates a variety of sounds from his instrument, at times mimicking an entire string section.


Dave & Tim :: 10.28 :: Santa Barbara
"Play anything Dave!" was one of the many requests shouted adoringly from the crowd, and so it was. Matthews took listeners on a tour of his strong catalog, providing comic relief between songs. Some stories were priceless, like Matthews talking about adventures in air travel, and others were probably only funny if you were there.

"Don't be afraid. People are trying to make you feel afraid, but don't be" said Matthews. "It's a waste of time."

Dave Matthews is a mischievous devil with a voice from heaven and a finger on the pulse of America. On this night, Matthews played many roles: joker, crooner, songwriter, and social commentator. His music has aged well, and it feels good to know Dave Matthews will be making people laugh and dance for years to come.

Nice article, I've always enjoyed Dave, and I think that there are too many haters when it comes to his music. You gotta give credit where credit is due. Peace

After seeing Dave 7/1/06 (the only reason i went was because of umphrey's) It ruined seeing live music for me..for a while. Dave Matthews is in the top 3 worst shows i have ever seen.

People on this site always rag on dave. I don't think it is well deserved. He is really talented. However, the general crowd at his shows seems to be the antithesis of the jam scene. It is like a fratboy, straightedge, wannabe, dorky crowd. Hard to describe, but it is too bad. I think dave really fits in better with the jam scene, at least the music does. But where do all of these nerdy fans come from? I am not sure how this phenomena started. I like dave shows, but please get some cooler fans...Peace.

You mean DMB isn't a jamband??? What?? sure enough, Shonuff said enough...I too would love to hop back onto the "I hate Dave because he's so damn popular" bandwagon-train that so many of us part-time music snob-bloggers and so called "jamband" music lovers will tend to cling on to (trust me, I used to be one of em' in the 90's)...but I think this time I'll just WON'T GIVE A middle FINGER PICKIN' F*** because really...I mean really...this "I hate Dave" thing was cute n' all after the Grammy's 'n sh** but really...shut the f*** up cuz nobody cares anymore...we get it, DMB is not "jam" music...what a revelation to you...soundin' like an Entertainment Tonight theme song written by a teenage cheerleading version of Ben Gibbard...

Give it up for Dave! Yeah, am I a bigger fan of bands like WSP, UM, KDTU, etc. But because of Dave's success he has been able to open the rest of the worlds eyes to bands like UM, Bela Fleck, G. Love, as well as many more.

Plus the ladies love Dave, and I love the ladies!!

Whether you hate him or love him, he is still a talented musician that works harder than most musicians out there. Good to see that most people can see past the bandwagon bullshit. Hopefully dmb's next album will kick them out of their post busted stuff slump.

you want an "umph freakout" try a 17 minute long version of two step with robert randolph, try a 34 minute long version of #41 with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, a 24 minute long version of Lie in Our Graves with Bela and Victor Umphrey's is good, but DMB is soo much more

Sorry but I have to get in on this one now. As a band UM is obviously the holdr of more musical prowess. Please don't argue this, because you can't. Dave is good he's got some shit granted. However. your point radiohead is unvalidated because every "jam" you mentioned was with a special guest. That means in your eyes they have to get a credible "jammer" in order to jam. Oooooooh Busted!

yea he did mention alot of "jammers" alongside the band but thats because he was mentioning some of the greats. listen to any random show in a random city and you will hear crazy jams from leroi moore the on the sax and especially boyd on the violin not to mention the insane drum solos by carter. dave scats in most shows also. i can see your stance when you say dave himself might not have what it takes to be the best jammer but as for the rest of the band the jams that take place are amazing and fit together so well. some jams you listen to are just a bunch of noise, but with dave the simplicity of each members parts in a song is what makes the jams and songs great.

DMB is a group of very talented musicians. It really can't be denied. Dave has done his thing for a long time with a lot of success. It just personally doesn't do it for me. They sound very good and tight live. They just don't rage enough for me. But they seriously don't suck. UM is a completely different thing why battle over two bands that are so different?

permalot it definately doesnt take a guest to make a great dmb jam. take a listen to a 6-21-2006 jam of two step for example. 22 minutes long of some amazing shit. to be honest i dont care if you guys think dmb is a jam band or not. i enjoy the music, if you dont then just dont listen and keep it to yourself

-sorry but Dave Mathews may be a talented musician, but to me his voice sounds like cats making love and the sax sounds like if Kenny G joined a jamband. DMB is the soft rock elevator music of the jam world. and yes, I came on here just to hate on Dave. oh, but how can 10's of thousands of frat boys and sorority sisters be wrong?

pretty funny that people are using an article about a Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds acoustic show to compare DMB and Umphrey's. they sound a lot a like and are very comparable.....seriously. I haven't really listened to Dave much since the late 90s, but I still think he is very good. Also, Tim Reynolds has some great classical guitar stuff out there if your into that kind of stuff.

Man, you guys just don't get it with Dave. He shouldn';t be compared to UM, they are vastly different. dave doesn't try to entice and ask you to come to a "jam" show. I love UM too, but Dave is a different thing. I seriously doubt he hand-picked who listens to his music, and I bet most of you loved it until it became popular among everyone. And you're right Dave can't jam like UM, but UM can't begin to write song lyrics as beautiful as what Dave writes. The shows are amazing and it's not as special now that sooo many people love dave and you can't see him in an intimate venue anymore. Not too many people will give you 3 and a half straight hours of excellent music with no breaks at all. Keep bringing us the soulful stuff Dave.

i admmit that once dave got popular i was a little turned off but i kept listening to his music and realised he is one of the best song writters of our time. even in the trey article trey talks about aquiring the talent that dave has as far as song writing goes. DMB is the best thing thats ever fucking happened to "mainstream" music. you can't deny that.

Dave's music is good and the live show looks awesome on dvd, but I've never been to a dave show. Things that deter me from them is the ticket prices and what I've heard about the fanbase. But I think I might check them out once to see what's up, see if the ticket price is worth it. And the dave hating is getting old. How can you deny good music because its too popular. boggles tha mind

yea busted stuff did suck. if you go to a show pay the extra little bit and sit in the seated section. the lawn is full of all the people that everyone on here talks about (fratboys and little girls) that are more concerned with getting fucked up than to listening to the music. the seats are your best bet. you can hear the music better from there also.

Yea. Tim Reynolds is one of the most talented guitarists I've had the joy to see live, and Dave Matthews is a great poet with a knack for writing great melodies. Also, DMB is not as entrenched in the "jam" sound, I don't think they define themselves by long, epic jams, and that's ok. They're all very talented musicians and though that "Everyday" album did kinda freak me out, Dave's married now, and it's understandable that alot of his music during that period might sound lovey dovey and poppy. That's ok too, he was just writing what he felt at that time. I've never gotten anything but humility, genuity, and soulfulness from Dave Matthews, and there's no accounting for taste. If you don't personally connect to the sound him and his band puts out, that's fine. Music and art isn't a contest, it's a joy to experience and can be a great source of spiritual guidance. Not everyone can connect to a song like "AC\DC Bag". If the existence of Dave Matthews Band really brings you that much distress you should look to trying to accept that some people live simple-minded lives and as long as they're kind, honest, and loving people that shouldn't bother you.

Hey, just wanted to add that Tim Reynolds is sick. I saw him play in my hometown of Greenville, SC at the Handlebar several months ago and he is one weird dude who plays some inventive, trippy jams. I was surprised. I really wasn't that excited to go see him, but went and left in awe. And as for Dave, he and his band will always get slack. DMB's good to go see with your wife or girlfriend. My wife and I went b/c she loves them and we had a ball. I was actually surprised how good they were live. No, they don't compare to UM and a lot of other jam bands, but they are still worth going to check out. By the way, the title of the article is hilarious.

here and now in 2006 the best current songwriter and lyricist is colin meloy of the decemberists. while there are understandably some people who think that such and such is better than the decemberists, you cannot deny that colin meloys ability to churn out an improv timeless tale and/or monograph or pop ditty with great bridges, melodies and harmonys and lyrical deliverence. he can capture any tone or vibe possible to accompany. sorry, but dave matthews is spent. while i acknowledge that they him and his band members are all talented people and can respect them for that, their music just doesn't do it for me. it's about as enjoyable as reading a 900 page book about the history of paperclips. as for tim, i can give him more props but dave has never done much but overshadow him unfortunetly. but seriously listen to one whole decemberists album all the way through and tell me that cloin meloy is at the top of the songwriting game for now.

I would just like to say that a true music fan would have to appreciate both Dave and Tim's musical talent. They're both amazing. Sometimes it pays to look outside the box. WP, UM, etc. are all great bands in their own right, but just because DMB doesn't fit the standard jam formula, doesn't mean they aren't talented.

Tim is a great guitar player and Dave crafts amazing songs. like a previous post-- i've gotten nothing but honesty from him. I think some may be missing the basics--he's not demanding anything from you. mearly writing songs.. --take a situation where it is only a human and a guitar.. nothing else... what would you come up with? what would I come up with? Dave came up with his r'epertoire.. and that goes for any singer/songwriter. as for his dudes and dudette fans--ehh, as said prior-- he didn't choose them. So, lets all keep an open mind about all music.. alright?


oh and, mars volta is overratted
colin isn't the 'best out there'--deffinatly sniff around
and last time I checked Umphreys Mcgee has their own dudes and dudettes--

I'll admit that Dave has some talent and his songs can be fun and catchy but his fans are some of the worst people in the world.
I caught the Alpine Valley show with UM and while the show was decent the vibe was horrible.
Just to list a few:
The guy who urinated in his beer cup and then set it down on the ground, then kicked it over.
The SUV full of tennie boppers who were throwing trash and cans out of their car as we waited to leave.
The people who would just cut in front of the 60 people waiting in line for a restroom.
The perfect outline of vehicles in trash in the lot.

I could go on but I don't want to hijack the threads.

I really enjoy DMB's music, one listen to Two Step and you'll understand, and Tim Reynolds is a superb guitarist. I would reccomend buying some albums by them, but not going to their shows. I'm sure DMB concerts were absolutely amazing during the early years, but nowdays a fantastic band has been killed by overpriced tickets and idiot fans. For example, during the Umphrey's set at Alpine they acted like there wasn't a band playing. Buy Crash and Under the Table and Dreaming, not concert tickets!

Anyone who's bitching about the frat boys is justified. I almot got my ass kicked for dancing at a concert. Of course dude was named Tyler or Timmy or T-bone, hat backwards, tribal armband tat, his girlfriend in pumps on the grass, Tiffiney or Tiff, puking on herself, you know the type. The scene in the seats was just as bad with dude in really white sneakers and his collar up wantin to flex on anyone who blocked his view. The scene is getting worse, time isn't helping, public outrage at the "frat" croud is falling on drunk deaf ears. The pity is how much more Dave's talent really deserves. I really love those quiet tender songs when Dave's on it and some dude screams "YOU ROCK DAVE". Those moments are just priceless, Thanks Tyler and Tiff!

Haha, "Tiff and Tyler" good one trustme ;)
It is true the scene at a DMB show has ruined it for this long time DMB fan. I think I may have attended my last DMB show this last summer and it makes me sad that I've let the people around me ruin my ability to enjoy some great music. Not to say that I haven't met some really cool, down to Earth people at DMB shows, because I have. We can't totally generalize the DMB populace. Not trying to start a war here either, but I think that geographic location somehow relates to the "Tiff and Tyler" levels. I've seen DMB at Alpine and the frat party quotient was through the fucking roof...it was all about the tail-gate party there. Then you take somewhere like the Gorge and people seem a little more "chilled-out." Anyway, that's besides the point. As many have said, you can't deny Dave Matthews’ impact on the music scene over the past 15+ years. Coming from someone who is now totally addicted to UM and other great new bands on the scene, I can say that I might not have been exposed if it weren't for my early DMB lovin' days. DMB acted as the musical "gateway" drug for me, so I am thankful for that.

The crowd is important if it ruins you expierence at the show, if so many people are saying it then it must be true, i've been to to 4 shows of DMB all because i was forced to or had free ticket, I expected nothing i am open to all kinds of music, and the crowd at these concerts is not their for the music they are there to get wasted, and for 50 year old dudes to hit on girls in college. Dave should start screenning his fans because the majority of them that go to his shows, they aren't listening, there to busy talking,and talking durnig the whole show, and when more 75 percent of the crow is like that you just can't enjoy the music because no one else really is, you can talk about how the Dave hating is getting old well it is well desreved and people who haven't gone to a conert deserve to know so they can save thier money and see some one like SCI or UM even though i'm not UM band i would recomend them over a Dave conert anyday of the week

its funny that everyone and thier mom can talk smack but i seen dave back when they were first coming about and they have aged well, if jerry was still alive it would be the same thing. And for everyone that made the comment about dorky fans and fratboy nerds, what do you think america is go see a show out of the country if you dont like the crow!

how can anyone say that dave isnt a jam band? i dont know with bands like phish, blues traveler, xaiver rudd, that they have toured with thats like telling janis on the train tour that the dead isnt a jam band. and UM sucks
