Dave Matthews Band

June 16, 2010 Verizon Wireless Amphitheater St. Louis – The Dave Matthews Band has become over the past couple of years, one of my favorite shows to shoot. Appreciating the off the chart musicianship, his loyal fans that are a blast to talk to (I met 10 people within handshake distance by the pit, from 10 different cities, 4 different States, and 1 lady who was attending her 101st DMB show on this night), fantastic stage lighting and design, and when photogs get to shoot only the first three songs of any given show, it’s great when those 3 songs average aroundĀ 6 minutes each.

The Great Robert Earl Keen opened the show, and to the surprise of the mostly absent 18, 000 + crowd, Dave strolled casually onto the stage to introduce his long time buddy, while everyone scrambled to snag theirĀ camera phones from their pocket.
