Farm Aid Music Monday, Starring Dave Matthews Band

MattThis week’s Music Monday takes us back to the 10th Anniversary Farm Aid concert in 1995 and the first time Dave Matthews (with the Dave Matthews Band) stepped onto the Farm Aid stage. The Dave Matthews Band played at Farm Aid again in 1997 and 1999 before Dave joined the board of directors in 2001 (joining Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, who introduces him in the videos below). He’s played every year since and we look forward to seeing him at Farm Aid 2012 in less than two weeks!

The 1995 concert was held in Louisville, Kentucky at the Cardinal Stadium and took place on October 1. Check out the playlist below, which features the band’s full six-song set, including a cover of “All Along the Watchtower”:
