The Dave Matthews Band formed in Charlottesville in 1991.[1] Some sources cite Charlottesville's Earth Day Festival in 1991 as the band's first public performance,[1] while others cite a performance on March 14, 1991 at Trax, a Charlottesville nightclub.[2]

Matthews was a bartender at Miller's on the downtown mall when the band formed.[2]

The Band continues to give back to the community that first supported them through the Bama Works Fund.
