Biography

===Early life===Dave is the third of four children born to John and Val Matthews. At age two, Dave's family migrated to Yorktown Heights in Westchester County, New York, where his father, a physicist, started working for IBM.[1] Westchester County is a primarily suburban county with about 940,000 residents located in the U.S. state of New York. ... For other uses, see IBM (disambiguation) and Big Blue. ...


In 1974, the family again moved to Cambridge, England for a year before returning to New York—where his father died from lung cancer in 1977. Nevin Martell argues that his father's death may be an impetus for his "carpe diem" lyrics.[2] The family moved back to South Africa in 1980.


Upon Dave's graduation from St Stithians College high school, he faced a requirement by the South African government to put in two years of compulsory military service. Coming from a devoutly Quaker family, military service was not an option.[3] St Stithians College consists of several private schools within a co-ordinate model and includes a boys college, a girls college, a boys preparatory school and a girls preparatory school. ... The Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers, or Friends, is a religious community founded in England in the 17th century. ...


Dave would move to Charlottesville, Virginia, a town Dave's family had lived in before he was born. It was in Charlottesville that he became part of the local music community.[3] Pursuing various interests, Matthews tried his hand on stage, acting in various local productions. While enthusiastic for music, and a popular bartender at a local watering hole called Miller's, Matthews was intimidated by the quality of the local musicians and largely shied away from performing publicly. But local star (and future collaborator) Tim Reynolds finally goaded Matthews to join him on stage one night, and Matthews stunned the audience with his performance.[4] This eventually led to his first professional musical gig at a modern dance performance by the Miki Liszt Dance Company, singing "Sensitive Feelings," composed by John D'earth and Dawn Thompson. In 1990 he hatched the idea to form his own band. Charlottesville is an independent city located within the confines of Albemarle County in the Commonwealth of Virginia, United States, and named after Sophia Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the queen consort of King George III of the United Kingdom. ...

In 1994, Dave's older sister, Anne, who lived in South Africa, was murdered by her husband who subsequently committed suicide on or around January 27, 1994. [5] - an event that has had a drastic effect on Dave's outlook on life.[6] Immediately following her death, Dave was forced to return to the United States due to unbreakable professional obligations. On January 29, 1994, he performed with Tim Reynolds at Wetlands in New York where he dedicated that performance "to her memory". His later album "Under the Table and Dreaming" would be dedicated to her.

Formation of Dave Matthews Band

Matthews had originally envisioned someone else singing his songs but instead decided to use his own vocals. Yet after writing his first few songs, including "The Song that Jane Likes" and "Recently", he began to consider starting his own band. Matthews formed The Dave Matthews Band in early 1991 with Boyd Tinsley, LeRoi Moore, Carter Beauford, Stefan Lessard, and Peter Griesar (who left the band a short time later) while he was working as a bartender at Miller's in Charlottesville. The band's first show was on April 20, 1991, at the Earth Day Festival in Charlottesville, Virginia.[9] Dave Matthews Band (also known by the acronym DMB) is a United States-based alternative rock band, originally formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1991 by singer, songwriter, and guitarist Dave Matthews. ...

They began booking gigs on local stages even though they did not have a name. They considered "Dumela", the South African word for hello, but no real enthusiasm was ever felt. They dropped the idea. It is reported that someone from the band telephoned a place where they were booked and said to "just write Dave Matthews and a band will show up." The person receiving the call wrote "band" after the name, and consequently it stuck.[citation needed]
