Roseland Ballroom - New York, N.Y. 2/24/95 (3 CDRs)

DMB Tour Archive 1993: 1993 was a year of change for the Dave Matthews Band. In March, keyboardist Peter Greiser decided that he had had enough of the touring lifestyle and he left the band -- 03.23.93 was his last show. DMB continued to tour, hitting more spots along the east coast, and continuing with its weekly gigs at Trax on Tuesdays, and Flood Zone on Wednesdays. Many people consider 1993 to be the height of the band's improvisation.

DMB Tour Archive 1994: 1994 is most memorable to tapers as The Year of the Death of the Soundboard Patch. DMB's first major label debut, Under the Table and Dreaming was released on RCA on 09.27.94, where it debuted at #34 on the charts. 1994 was what we at the DMBTA consider the band's finest year: they had comfortably adapted to the loss of Peter, and truly came into their own. Their relentless touring schedule precluded much time for Dave to concentrate on his songwriting;
