The veteran groove-rock act Dave Matthews Band, led by singer/guitarist Dave Matthews, hits the Coliseum stage this week as part of a month-long East Coast arena tour. Matthews will be joined on stage by three longtime bandmates — drummer Carter Beauford, bassist Stefan Lessard, and violinist Boyd Tinsley (violin) — along with newly enlisted woodwind player Jeff Coffin and other special guests. The group’s latest record is titled Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (RCA). City Paper contributor Stratton Lawrence has a lot to say about the Charlottesville, Va.-bred quintet in this week’s Music+Clubs section. “I had the Under the Table and Dreaming and Crash fake books, and I could literally play a medley of the entire albums track by track,” he says of his early DMB experiences. “It’s hard to say what changed. Dave Matthews’ music certainly got more electric, beginning with 1998’s Before These Crowded Streets. But it was probably 2001’s Everyday that killed the band for folks like me.” —T. Ballard Lesemann
