Dave Matthews Band, abbreviated DMB, is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S. in 1991. The group’s lyrical themes focus on topics ranging from God, love, sex, the enjoyment and appreciation of life, to ending racism, and political and anti-war statements. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore.
The band is known for their annual summer-long tours of the US and Europe, featuring lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs, accompanied by an elaborate video and lighting show. This portion of the tour has become a stamp of DMB.
The band has won one Grammy Award, and was awarded the NAACP Chairman’s Award.
Methane Studios has been commissioned to design posters and create special projects for the Dave Matthews Band since 2005. Some of those posters were used for decks of playing cards: 2009 edition, 2010 edition and 2012 edition:
In partnership with Methane Studios – a custom deck of playing cards ( a limited edition run). Each of the 52 cards and 2 jokers in this standard deck feature a different poster from the 2009 tour and on the back you’ll find our twist on the classic Bicycle card backs.
