On this date in 1995, the Dave Matthews Band made their debut at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California. The show came just two days after the death of Grateful Dead guitarist/vocalist Jerry Garcia, whom the DMB honored with their first and only “Eyes Of The World” cover.
The lone Dave Matthews Band version of “Eyes” came towards the end of the group’s 13-song main set at The Greek. Matthews handles vocals, while Boyd Tinsley and LeRoi Moore each took solos. Just a few songs later the band would work teases of “Eyes Of The World” into their own “Recently.” DMB ended their Greek debut with an encore that saw Dave come out solo for “Typical Situation” before the rest of the band join in on a cover of “All Along The Watchtower.”
