#TBT - Meeting Dave Matthews

#TBT - Meeting Dave Matthews
Posted August 14th, 2014 @ 4:32am
If you were not aware, Dave Matthews is one of my favorite musicians ever!!!!!  I have been a member of the Dave Matthews Band fan club since 1995 and have pretty much been to every Dave show that has come to the town I live in since.  To be honest over the past few years "life" has really gotten in the way of my love for Dave.  Dave is coming to town in a few weeks and to be honest I'm not even 100% sure I am going to go this year.  I am turning into a horrible DMB fan.  :(


I have gotten to meet Dave twice.  Both times were up in Nor Cal.  The first time I met Dave was probably at one of the best Dave performances I've ever seen.  I believe it was 2001 and Dave was doing this little solo private performance tour for a handful of radio stations.  Luckily one of those radio stations was one that I worked for in San Jose.  Around 10am a group of radio station employees and listeners took a bus up to San Francisco.  Dave was going to do a show for about 20 of us at the historic Fillmore in SF.  There were so few of us that they set up chairs on stage and we sat and listened to Dave talk about the new album and play us about a half dozen of the songs on his guitar.  So amazing!  I got to meet him in the "green room" before the performance.  I could tell it was a bit early for him and he might have still been a bit drunk from the night before.........


 The second time I met Dave was about a year later when he did a Winter Tour that came to San Jose.  I brought my friend Jeni and we got to go backstage for a meet-and-greet.  I was heartbroken that he didn't remember me from the last time we met and ask me to marry him, but it is still cool to have the pictures...........
