The Dave Matthews Band continued a three-night stand at The Gorge in Quincy, WA on Saturday; where for the second show of the run they welcomed a number of guests to share the stage with them at various points of the show as part of their lone DMB Caravan multi-band festival of 2014.

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and folk-rocker Brandi Carlile both sat in on the tour debut of “Spoon” in the middle of the second set. McCready, who’s not only a good friend of DMB bassist Stefan Lessard but also is a member of cover band 1, 2, 3 GO! with him, last appeared at a Dave show on September 7, 2013 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA. Carlile, who opened for Dave and the band, had previously sat in on a version of “Spoon” back on June 22, 2013 at Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN. “Spoon” had been on the shelf for 70 shows prior to Saturday night and was followed by the tour debut of “Out of My Hands.”

Later in the second set, Matthews brought out The Lovely Ladies trio of backing vocalists. Sharon Bryant, Tawatha Agee and Candace Anderson lent their voices to “Save Me,” “Long Black Veil” and “Stay (Wasting Time).” Tonight, the Dave Matthews Band concludes their three-night stand at The Gorge.
