 The Dave Matthews Tribute Band

Dave Matthews Tribute Band  | 8:30 - 10 pm
Their name says it all - The Dave Matthews Tribute Band. Many go to their live shows with reservations, high expectations, and the burning question, "Do these guys sound like the real Dave Matthews Band?" Almost always the answer is, "Yes!" As Rick Grant of Entertaining U in Jacksonville, FL wrote, "The Dave Matthews Tribute Band turned out to exceed its billing as a quality improvisational band that uses Dave Matthews material as themes to improvise. Clearly, this distinguishes them from the other so-called tribute bands. The band is exceptionally tight and produces a solid groove over which the players improvise with hot chops." The Dave Matthews Tribute Band is the only internationally touring tribute to the Dave Matthews Band. This 6-piece ensemble strives to pay homage to their famous counterparts by matching the excitement, energy, intensity and intimacy of a DMB live show. 

 

Dell Foxx Company

Dell Foxx Company | 6:45 - 8 pm
Dell Foxx Company is a high-energy party/dance band known for their unique spin on popular music from today and classic songs from the past. Formed in 2014, they have quickly gained popularity all over Maryland, with monthly residencies at bars from Baltimore's Tin Roof, to the Jetty in Grasonville. Whether it's a classic like Tracy Chapman, or brand new songs from Niall Horan, Dell Foxx Company plays a diverse mix of music sure to get your feet moving and their stage presence is something that can't be missed!
