Big eyed phish news!!!
So much fun getting to hang out and party with so many DMB fans at our shows. We have really had a blast over the last few weeks and want to again thank everyone who has come out to make the shows such a success.
We have 3 shows coming up! The first is April 19th at the Finger Lakes Casino for our regular performance there! Always a good time at Remedy Club!
Next is a big show for us as we return to Rochester for a show at Nashvilles! The normally country bar in Henrietta is doing some "non-country music" on fridays and we are one of the bands! This is our first show back in the area and possibly one of our last until the summer festival season! If you haven't been to this place, it is awesome! Be sure to come on out!
Then we have a show at a new venue for us out of town - in Eastchester, NY - Mickey Spillane's. We are very excited to be traveling to the area to bring them the best DMB concert experience they will find without going to see the real thing!
Hope to see you all at some shows!
A 2-day show coming up on March 14th and 15th at the Evening Star Concert Hall in Niagara Falls, NY! Come party with us and celebrate the music of DMB as well as St. Pattys Day! A live DMB experience you will NOT want to miss
Calendar is very quickly filling up for 2014! We have some big shows coming up in February at some new venues and new cities! Erie, Pittsburgh, Plattsburgh...can't wait to come give each venue its very own DMB experience! Check out our calendar for venues and locations!

band changes, Casinos and Cortaca and ski resorts oh my!
Some winter bookings are pouring in and we are happy to be bringing our Dave Matthews show experience to some new venues and places in the upcoming months, as well as returning to some of our favorite destinations! We want to continue to thank everyone who helps spread the word for our shows and continues to come out to see us and dance the night away to some great DMB tunes!
Over the last couple of months, there have been some changes in the band:
Chris Brodhecker - longtime bassist for B.E.P - has moved to New Jersey with his girlfriend as well as for a job opportunity. Chris has been replaced by Shawn Rotolo in the band. Shawn has already played a few shows with us and we have heard nothing but great things!
Dan Merkey - longtime sax player for B.E.P - has decided to move on to some new musical projects. Dan was a great asset to us - so we figured what better way to replace him, than to find another professional musician named "Dann"! If a Dan with 1 "n" in his name plays sax well, a Dann with 2 "n"s will surely bring it as well! Dann Brown (who recently got engaged!) has also played a few times with us already and has had some standing ovations. He, like Dan Merkey, bring our sound and stage presence to a whole new level.
Matt Beeman is our new lead guitar player for the band. Matt has played with Brandon for years as a "Dave and Tim" acoustic duo, and has filled in for B.E.P. many times in the past. Matt's attention to the details of Tim's sound is remarkable, and will surely be appreciated by even the best DMB aficionados. Matt has replaced Collin Jones, who is pursing his original music. You can check out Collin's other bands by searching for Haewa and Occupanther.
Karl Thomas - longtime drummer for B.E.P. - is also parting ways to make a run at the big leagues down in NYC around the end of this year. Karl will be with us for a few more months, but will then be replaced by Jimmy Grillo. Jimmy was hand-picked by Karl as his successor, which speaks volumes for Jimmy's ability. As a longtime DMB fan, Jimmy has also studied the intricacies of Carter's playing.
The remaining band members (Brandon, Brian, Mike) - were all made aware of the intentions for these departures many months back - and have been working with past and current members of the band to get everyone up to speed. All departures are on amicable terms and there is no question you may see one or more of them return for a big show, or to sub for a player that can't make it. We do wish all departing members good luck in their future endeavors and have nothing but thanks for the time they have put into making this band what it is. With that said, we are extremely excited about this new lineup - which has most definitely given a breath of freshness to the band. New songs, new jams, new solos, as well as all the old stuff you loved about the band...Big Eyed Phish 2.0 is not something you want to miss!
Cheers and don't forget to eat, drink, and be merry!!!!
Starting of the Rochester Amerks season right!
We are very excited to be playing the pre-game and 1st intermission at the Amerks game on October 4th! This is their season opener, so it is going to be a packed house at the Blue Cross Arena! We can't wait to bring you some great tunes to rock out to as we cheer on Rochester's favorite hockey team! The band starts playing at 5pm and will also play during the first intermission. Needless to say we will be partying and cheering the team on during the game as well!
Great time in Cortland (as always) - Off to troy next weekend!
Thanks as always to Joe and the crew at the Stone Lounge. We always have a blast there. The band is certainly looking forward to coming back in November! Next up we are in Troy at the Riverfront Rocktoberfest! Can't wait to be back in the Capital Region! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

New website is here!
We are working on getting this new website up and running. The old one was really supposed to be a temporary thing, we just haven't had the time to fix it. Hopefully this one will be faster, more user friendly, and allow us to do things much easier such as posting pictures from shows! Stay tuned as there are a lot of changes happening as we continue to bring you the best in live DMB Experience entertainment!!!!
