Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of Dave Matthews Band‘s first live performance. The band – which at the time found Dave Matthews performing with Carter Beauford, Stefan Lessard and Leroi Moore – kicked off what would turn into a legendary career at Trax in Charlottesville, Virginia on March 14, 1991. To celebrate the occasion, DMB shared audio from their historic debut.
