DMCB Calls it Quits

By Waldo Jaquith
The most well-known Dave Matthews Band cover band, creatively named "Dave Matthews Cover Band," has broken up. Their farewell performance, planned as such, was held last week, at Atlanta's Variety Playhouse. The five-piece Athens-based band toured across the country for 4 years, serving up their own renditions of DMB's music to largely college-aged crowds. With the band's members having established their reputations as solid musicians while playing the music of others, they are now going their own ways to perform their own music . For some background on the group, see Brian Pace's January 2003 interview with them. Thanks to Jonathan Keller for the tip.
