Dave Matthews' career in music started off from Charlottesville Premier Bar for musicians in the early nineties. He wrote songs in the morning and worked as a bartender during the night. The talented but hesitant artist just lacked the courage to share his melodies with public and it was with the support of his friend Ross Hoffman that he crawled out of his shell and recorded a demo of his self written songs. He jammed with John D'earth, LeRoi Moore and Carter Beauford, later deciding to form his own band. Matthews along these musicians conducted his first concert at the bar's rooftop as The Dave Matthews Band.
Start of a Successful Journey
Formed in the early nineties, Dave Matthews Band embarked on a successful music journey with the members Carter Beauford, Leroi Moore, Stefan Lessard, Peter Greiser and Boyd Tinsely. Together they worked effortlessly on their first studio album, ‘Remember Two Things' that was released in 1993 and went on to become a huge hit. It debuted on the College Charts as the highest independent entry and earned a Platinum certification in a short span of time. Popularity of their debut release attracted offers from many well known record labels and after fielding a few, DMB signed with RCA Records to release its second album, ‘Under the Table Dreaming'. Declared a hit, it sold four million copies in the US alone. With singles like, ‘What Would You Say', it won Dave Matthews Band a Grammy Award in the category of ‘Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal' and marked the first breakthrough in their career.

The success of their breakthrough release, ‘Under the Table Dreaming' continued till the mid nineties. The band's following album was titled ‘Crash'.
