Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds
Dave and Tim met more than 25 years ago in Charlottesville, VA and have been collaborating ever since. Their rare performances as an acoustic duo allow fans to experience their special chemistry up-close, as they strip down each song to its essence and tell stories. The duo have released three live double-CDs together: 1999’s multi-Platinum Live At Luther College, Live At Radio City (2007) and Live In Las Vegas, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums charts in 2010. In June 2018, their new Dave Matthews Band album, Come Tomorrow, debuted at No. 1 on US Billboard 200. 2019 marks their third year performing on the beach in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Grammy Award winning artist Warren Haynes has been recognized as a cornerstone of the American music landscape and revered as one of the finest guitar players in the world. Throughout his prolific career as part of three of the greatest live groups in rock history – Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule and the Dead – his virtuosic artistry has led to thousands of unforgettable performances and millions of album and track sales. Despite all of the ground that Haynes has covered on his musical journey, the impressive thing is that he still has many miles to explore.
Childers’ sound — a fusion of folk, bluegrass and country with a raw, emotionally-gripping tinge that’s halfway between a confession and a holler — is born of his life growing up in East Kentucky, a place rich with forgotten stories and people just trying to do the best they can. It was a childhood that now enables him as a songwriter to not glamorize Appalachia (“if you say apple-aychia, I’ll throw an apple-athcha” he jokes from the stovetop), but to capture the beauty in its flaws: the bond between families generations thick; the calloused skin of hard days and harder pasts; the black dust of coal and the white dust of cocaine. Born in Lawrence County, Childers was a red-haired kid who wanted to be a journalist or an English teacher, but that changed once he started playing the guitar. His grandfather — “pawpaw”— bought him his first one, and Childers took to writing.
