Subject: Trading Phish for DMB
	At the beginning of last summer a friend of mine from Virginia
told that when I started attending Washington & Lee in Lexington, Va., DMB
would be the biggest band around. Being from New Jersey, I had never heard
of DMB, although my friend told me I would like them because she knew
my musical taste.  Now that I am at W&L, and have seen DMB a few times, I
realize my friend was right.  So what I'd like to do now is get a hold of
some good sounding DMB shows to get an even better feel for the band and
their music.  I do have one really good tape where the first side is a mix
of different songs recoreded live on DAT. The second side is just Dave and
his guitar in the studio? playing some tunes.  Again the sound on both
sides is exellent.  Besides that, I have about 100 hrs of Phish that I'd
be willing to trade for DMB.  So if anyone out thereis interested, drop me
a line.  Thanks for taking the time to read this.  OH! Also, if you are
going to be at Zolleman's in Lexington Va. on the 27th, let me know
because I'll be there too! Thanks again.

Subject: DMB's CD Release Info (fwd)

Here's some more info about the upcoming album that I forgot I had.  Hope
this helps all those wondering about it.

...the release date is now set for November 2! The new disk is titled
"Remember Two Things" and the track listing is as follows:

Ants Marching/Tripping Billies/Recently/Satellite/One Sweet World/The Song
That Jane Likes/Minarets/Seek Up/I'll Back You Up/Christmas Song

The disk was produced by John Alagia and the Dave Matthews Band Sept/Oct
1993, and features both live cuts and studio tracks. It looks like this will
be the band's only independent release b/c a major-label deal is being
finalized as we speak and should be announced in Nov or Dec.

Do us a favor and inquire about the disk with your local record store! Record
retailers can contact the label directly for distribution information:

Subject: Wetlands??

Is anyone going to be there?
Does anyone know what's up w/ Wetlands?
Should we have a net gathering? 8-) just kidding.

Anyway, I'm going to be there taping and I was wondering if anyone else
from minarets was planning on going also.  Maybe we can get together and
do some trading (pref. DAT).  Let me know before next weekend so I can
bring some stuff that might be useful.  I've never been to Wetlands so can
anyone give me any insight into things I should/shouldn't do/bring? 
Hope to see some of you soon.

Has anyone else noticed how much minarets has dyed down since its
announcement last week? 8-)

Do you think I should make another post to Horde.Net,Phish.Net,Fine-Wine,..
about minarets again or should I leave it be?  Don't want to waste more
bandwidth but want people to know it's here. 

By the way, Zollman's IS a private party but...........my brother said it
probably not going to be that hard to get in if you are not part of the
"private party"  BTW, the "private party" consists of 4 W&L frats!  My
brother THINKS that you may still be able to get in for something like $5.
Remeber this is just what my brother THINKS.  He doesn't know for sure and
I wouldn't drive a couple of hours on this assumption.  Check it out
first, I'm just relaying what I found out.

Subject: Dave Matthews Band Updates!

The Dave Mathews Band CD Release Party will be NOV 9, NOT NOV 2,
as previously announced, according to Chris Bowman of TRAX. There
will be a special guest opening on the 9th, but I forgot who. At
midnight, there will be a special appearance/performance at Plan
9 Records in Charlottesville (on Main Street, about two blocks
from TRAX) for the release, and, I presume,  signings, meetings,
etc.

On Nov. 16, GOD STREET WINE will open for the Dave Mathews Band
at TRAX, Charlottesville, VA.

More Nov dates and other info on the way...

Subject: DMB Tree Closed

Sorry for the crossposting, but the minarets.net is just getting
going and there were over 200 requests for this tree.

The tape tree for the Dave Mathews Band at the Bayou, with mucho
fillers, closes at midnight tonight (mon, oct 25.) If your
submission is not dated and timed by then, or if I get it
substantially after that point, then it will be too late.

The tree structure will posted on the horde.net
(horde@world.std.com to post, horde-request@world.std.com to
subscribe) and the minarets.net (minarets@moose.uvm.edu to post,
listproc@moose.uvm.edu to subscribe).  I will also try to forward
a copy to everyone involved, though thats another hour or two of
scripting.

There are over 200 participants in the tree.  There will not be a
DAT branch. Various clusters of folks (esp. within Virginia) are
going to dub among themselves, off the tree, so that the tree
will comprise closer to 130 folks.

The tapes are TWO tapes of 100 minutes, soundboard masters will
fillers from soundboard masters.  The sound grand!!

Subject: Re: MINARETS partial digest 8

The only thing I heard regarding DMB and the Jerry Garcia Band was that
there would not be a Halloween show this year because the band would be
attending the Garcia show at Brendan Byrne Arena in New Jersey.  This comes
from a friend of the band and makes sense since they will be in NYC the
on the 30th for the Wetlands gig.

Subject: minarets and the beatles...

the best explanation for the beginning of minarets is this:
dave matthews.
it's like trying to explain phish language (or trying to explain
fishman).  some other songs that dave likes to combine are:
putting the opening lines of 'dancing in the streets' on the
beginning of recently(7-7-93, 7-14-93) and playing recently
shorter with a few quotes from a rolling stones song that goes
like this: "pretty, pretty girl, lovely, lovely girl, spin my
world around, you got my world turnin'"(same two shows).  also,
stefan once broke into 'the wild side' during the jam session of
jimi thing(3-23-93).  it's just a way of playing songs differently
and livening up the show.

THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND and MINARETS.NET FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FILE.
This FAQ was compiled with the gracious help of Ellis of Lemuria,
Alex Crothers, Rick Thompson, and Gregg Carrier.  Any questions
which you feel should be added to this FAQ should be addressed
to Rick Thompson at stu_rcthomps@vax1.acs.jmu.edu.
 
The main questions in this file are as follows:
Who is the Dave Matthews Band?
What is Minarets.Net and how do I subscribe?
What about this new album?
 
=======================================================================
Who is the Dave Matthews Band?
 
....The Members:
Dave Mathews -- guitar, vocals (amazing voice!)
Carter Beauford -- percussion, vocals  (jam on!)
Stefan Lessard -- bass (thump and grind, and he's 18!!)
LeRoi Moore -- woodwinds (esp saxophone!!, flute), vocals
Boyd Tinsley -- violin (read: FIDDLE!!!), vocals
...
....The Band:
The Dave Mathews Band draws from the distinct talents and styles
of its five members to create a uniquely compelling pop sound
that combines the influences of folk, jazz, rock, world beat, and
reggae.  Some of it seems like a cross between Bob Dylan, Hot
Tuna, and Michael Stipe, parts are remniscent of a funky Miles
Daves, and parts sound like the Seldom Scene and Ziggy Stardust
mixed together. In an unknown show in the spring of 93, Dave
described the song "One Sweet World" as a sort of "Virginia
country funk," which is yet another way of inadequately describing
their unique sound.
....Dave Mathews, the band's namesake and formerly a Charlottes-
ville bartender, began assembling the group in 1991.  A self-
taught guitarist and an inspiring poet from South Africa,
Dave Mathews has said that the goal of his music is "lifting
spirits" and this band reaches that goal.
....Carter Beauford, a past regular on BET (Black Entertainment
Television) and son of a jazz trumpet player, helps tie the band's
various elements together.
....Stefan has played upright bass in clubs  since he was 15, was 16
when DMB was formed, and continues to get more powerful and controlled
every show.
....LeRoi has played with Carter and John D'Earth (amazing trumpet
player!!; catch him on Bruce Hornsby's new disc and on a 60-show
tour with Hornsby this fall) at paying gigs and informal jam sessions
around Charlottesville for years; the man can jam!!
.....Last, but certainly not least, Boyd Tinsley: he doesn't like
to sing (but sounds great when he does), but man can he play that
fiddle!  At three HORDE shows this summer, as well as at the Red
Rocks Amphitheatre, the crowd went NUTS each time Boyd appeared.
Boyd played as wonderfully to that crowd of some 9,000 in July as
he did on a lawn, in the rain, for ten folks sitting in grass
last May.  He's cool-natured and friendly beyond belief; all he
wants is to play, and boy can he!  You ain't heard Watchtower
until you've heard the DMB's arrangement with Boyd's SMOKING
solo!
.....DMB has played ALL over Virginia, but has also played dates
in SC, NC, GA, AL, NY, IL, CO, MD, DC, TN, and I can't begin to
remember where else. You may have seen them or heard about them
playing Feb. 6 at the Ritz (NYC) playing with members of the
Allmans, Widespread, PHISH, Blues Traveler, and I've forgotten
who else.

What is Minarets.Net and how do I subscribe?
 
Alex Crothers writes:
Basically minarets.Net was initially started by myself(Alex Crothers)
with the help of Ellis of Lemuria and Eric Budke.  I got involved with
the DMB through my brother who began booking them when they first
formed and is now their "unofficial" photographer.  The name of the
Net comes from a song that will appear on their forthcoming album
(Nov. 2) and was suggested by Ellis. Originally Sreaming from the
Minarets, the band shorten the name of the song to Minarets.  So the
name of the Net went from Sreaming_From_The_Minarets.Net to Minarets.Net.
I guess we all got lucky. $-)
 
This Net is somewhat different than other musical nets that you may be
familiar with.  To begin with it is not (yet) digestified so whenever you
send a message to Minarets it gets sent to all the subscribers immediately.
Another aspect of this net that is different than other nets is in the way
you subscribe/unsubscribe.
To subscribe send the message "subscribe minarets <Your Name>" to
listproc@moose.uvm.edu.  This mailing list is run through through the
University of Vermont so it is subject to their rules/laws. So far this
is the only way to sign up but I'm working on setting up an alias in the
form minarets-request@moose.uvm.edu like many of the other nets.  But for
now you'll have to do it that way.  Similarily that works with unsubscribe
also.
 
Once you are signed up, to send regular posts to Minarets just send them
to minarets@moose.uvm.edu.  It's as easy as that.
 
Now a little bit about me.  I'm a student at University of Vermont so I do
have other things to do (i.e. tape trading, hiking, skiing, partying,
recording bands that come through the area, and, oh yeah, studying) but
hopeflly this won't take a lot of my time once I get it fine tuned.  It can
pretty much run itself. I hope. $-)  If you have any problems or questions
about the workings of the net, let me know: jcrother@moose.uvm.edu
 
Thanks

Hey All,
There has been a thread on Rec.music.gdead regarding the best
Watchtowers of all time.  IMHO Dave put in his bid for the top
spot last night with a solo version.  It was out of control.  The
real reason I write is to confirm or deny a rumor about DMB at
the Wetlands on Sunday the 31st.  Anyone know anything about
this?

Had the pleasure of driving down to Chicago Sunday
to catch DMB at the Metro with the Samples
what was disssssapointing was the massive
30 minute set
they were allowed to play,
though a truly  excellent 30 minutes including watchtower
the crowd, a Samples crowd no doubt, loved Boyd!!!
i heard things like,  "he's got to be possessed!"
and after ants marching,
"that was INCREDIBLE!"
anyway boyd came out and jammed with the samples and let me tell y'all
the crowd went wild when he first appeared on stage!
nifty!  Dave came out on stage as well...
so we also had the pleasure of talking to LeRoy after the show
nice guy!
anyway he said the cd's release date is the 9th but they'd have
some b/4 then, or something like that.

Subject: taping question and grovel

     What is the band's policy towards taping shows?  Obviously they allow
it, but how does one approach them about it?   Does anyone ever tape directly
to an analog recorder from the soundboard, or is it strictly DAT?

     By the way, if anyone taped Tuesday's (10/26) Trax show, could they
respond to a humble offer for a copy?  It was a great show - the band was
very energetic.  The encores were great too.

Subject: band taping policies

>From my experience, the band is very easy to work with in terms of
taping.  I've taped them several times, from the soundboard, with
mikes, a blend of the two, to dat, analog, and have even seen people
taping to home cassette decks. These guys are easy to get along with,
and actually seem to appreciate the fact that they get taped.

Subject: Bayou shows

To Reid and whomever else is interested...
Ever since a couple months ago, the DMB has been selling out The Bayou FAST!!!
I was there the first time it sold out, but since then it has been happening
earlier and earlier...sometimes as much as 3 hours before the show!
 
My advice: get there early...REAL EARLY
 
Also, even if you are under 21...HAVE AN ID READY!!  They are VERY STRICT about
making sure you are 18 to get in.  School ID's will not work.  They will turn
you down with anything other than a driver's license or some similar ID.
 
I repeat...SCHOOL ID DOES NOT HOLD UP AT THE BAYOU.
 
Overall, I find the Bayou kind of irritating as far as security and crowds
although Dave usually does a good show.  The crowds aren't as bad as at Trax,
but your best bet in my book is the Flood Zone.  See you all later...

Alright, I'm basically committing myself to go down to Wetlands
tomorrow.  I hope to be next to the board taping.  If anyone wants to
say hi feel free to do so.  

Also, does anyone know the street address of Wetlands off hand.  I
just realized I don't know it, but just the area that it is in.

I'm not exactly sure of the address to the wetlands, but its on
Hudson, in soho.  Easiest way to get there is to take the holland
tunnel into new york.  Its on the right, on the corner of hudson and
whatever street runs through the tunnel.

Also, the address is in the back of every Relix magazine... :-)

Subject: SURVEY SAYS......

i'm taking a survey for the lyrics file about the song pay for
what you get.  currently there are about 20 people on the mailing
list(send a request to the address below if you want to subscribe),
and about 1/4 of them say that the line in the second verse about
birds finishes like this:
 
"have you heard, that the bird in hand is much better than,
any number free to wander"
 
which makes more sense in context than:
 
"have you heard, that the bird in hand is much better than,
any number three to wonder"
 
which, IMHO, is a more poetic play on words.
send me your thoughts on the subject.

In answer to the question: why Peter left the band? 
(For those of you who don't know he was the keyboard player, and he left the
band in late March of this year.)  I saw DMB play at Salem College here in
Winston-Salem on April 5, and apparently he had just left.  During the
intermission, I asked Boyd why he left.  He said that since Peter was married
and had just got a house, he was tired of all the traveling and wanted to be at
home with his family. 
Hope that somewhat of answer.

I don't remember the DMB ever having a keyboard player when I've seen
them at Ziggy's in Winston-Salem.  I could've missed him, but I
honestly don't think he was at the shows I saw last fall.  However, I
also think that the songs of theirs that We Are Who We Are (C'vlle
All-Stars) play sound great with a hammond organ, so maybe they should
consider adding the All-Stars organ player :-).

the dave matthews band used to have a keyboard player named Peter
Grieser(sp?) who, as mentioned before, left the band in late March,
93.  he played a pretty straigtforward synthesizer and added a lot
of different touches to a lot of different songs.  probably the most
notable difference to the bands set is the loss of a piano solo in
jimi thing.  i also feel that dangerous hours(help myself), so much
to say, dancing nancies, and cry freedom lost out big time with peter's
leaving, not to mention the fact that they never do lover lay down
anymore.
something else that is not well known is the band used to have a second
percussionist.  i don't really know if he was ever a permanent part of
the band, but he added a real nice touch to the bands overall sound, sort
of like widespread panic's second percussionist.  his name was miguel
valdez and he passed away at the beginning of this year.  if anything
knows any more about miguel, i'd really like to know more about him.
 
as for the hammond organist in c'ville all-stars, he's already playing
(and has been for some time) with indecision, if he's the organist i'm
thinking of.
 
hope this helps...

Personally, I would doubt it.  It would seem to me, if they wanted to
add the keyboards back into the band, it would have been done before
the CD was recorded.
