LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Watching the Dave Matthews Band moments before they take the stage is like watching a football team bursting out of the locker room before a big game.
They slap hands. Bump fists. Jump up and down, exclaiming "Feel the love, feel the love!" The energy in the air is electric.
And when they walk out on stage, the energy explodes into thousands of shining faces. People dance in the aisles. Others sing every word to every song. A few share funny cigarettes.
For more than three hours, the jubilant atmosphere creates a sense of community between an amphitheater filled with strangers and the ethnically diverse musicians leading the charge on stage.
But then DMB is all about community -- creating its own and giving back. BAMA Works Fund -- the group's charitable foundation -- has handed out $5 million in grants to worthy causes, including schools and victims of Hurricane Katrina. Video

This stupid, spoiled child of privilege and apartheid should go back to South Africa.
Yup. That Dave-Matthews poop 'everywhere', says FReeper.
Former Senator John Edwards (there are “two Americas”, just like for Dave Matthews “there were two South Africas”) reportedly told his pregnant beau that he would marry her and Dave Matthews Band would peform at the wedding. Sounds about right.
What a dolt.
How many black people does he live around? Why isn’t he back in SA helping his fellow countrymen? Why is he in this EVIL CAPITALIST society if it sooooo racist and evil that it elected a black man as POTUS? Oh, as far as health care, taxes, going “green”, etc, we know Dave isn’t worried with his millions; what about the rest of us who are trying to get to that level?
Including my radio, unfortunately.
This guy supports apartheid and he calls the U.S. racist?
This band is sooo overrated. Seriously, I never got what was good about them.
He’s right . Walk down the street in most black neighborhods in the USA and you’ll find out real quick how racist it is .
How many black people go to a Dave Matthews concert?
>> His brainpower matches his songwriting ability.
A big hearty plus one to that.
Mrs. Tick bought one of his albums a few weeks ago. She played in in the car. In my humble opinion, it was bland and lacking in musical talent of any sort. Not so much “terrible” as “pathetic”. I can’t figure out what the fuss is all about with this boy.
Indeed, Dave’s bus, crossing a Chicago River bridge, dumped sewage on tour boat patrons below. It is how I always remember Dave.
Another star opens his mouth and ruins the charade. Don’t quit your day job, Dave.
Amen to that, I have heard better singing talent at my local Mexican restaurant on Friday night. And even better, they don’t feel the need to preach.
Whatever that is .....
lol...what a candy-ass outfit. Nauseatingly bad music, sappy/mindless lyrics, and naive politics. That's the DM Band for ya.
