The Dave Matthews Band formed in 1991 by South African vocalist and guitarist Dave Matthews. Matthews selected performers from Virginia to join him in the jam, with band mates Stefan Lessard as a bassist, Leroi Moore as saxophonist, Boyd Tinsley as a violinist, Carter Beauford as drummer, and keyboardist Peter Griesar. The band was reconfigured in 1993 when Griesar left and again in 2008 when Moore passed away following an ATV accident. Jeff Coffin, of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, joined the band following Moore's death. Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds also joined the band as full time touring members.
