SparkPeople Dave Matthews Band Fans Team Messageboard A place for all of us that love the music of DMB. Whether for inspiration, exercise or just love of the music, let's celebrate one of the greatest bands of our times. SparkPeople Dave Matthews Band Fans Team Messageboard Dave Matthews Band Summer Tour 2016 Confirmations in 2/14/16. As opposed to last year, I got all my requests. Due to lack of funds and lack of a concert partner for more concerts---(right now my daughter is my faithful concert partner---she loves DMB but is in college and can only go when the concerts are close and in the summer--the Gorge is out this year)-----I am only going to 3 concerts this year---all close by. Cincinnati is unusually early this year---I hope we have good weather May 20th and then on to Cleveland at Bl... Tue, 16 Feb 2016 07:42:34 EST 2016 Party of one------will be posting as often as I can. Waiting for summer tour dates! Have been to the Gorge three times but money may be a little short this year with my lovely daughter in college (University of Dayton). But if anyone here is thinking about it, I might consider it---it is a great time! Plus I have some tips with experience. Got some sweet DMB items for Christmas ---sterling silver firedancer earrings. A 41 distressed ball cap and a T shirt maroon in color, "sweet You Rock ... Mon, 4 Jan 2016 07:05:56 EST Hola! Just a quick note to see how everyone is doing, it's been a long time! <BR> Wed, 8 Oct 2014 09:57:06 EST Post your dream concert set! I will have to think about this but will attempt to complete it today! My number one show EVER (out of over 40 shows) was last year at Blossom and was sooooooo pleased to see (and hear) it come out on the recent Live Trax! We had such a great time at that venue last year--we are going to go again and we added Pittsburgh this year. I have been there before too---great place to tailgate and extremely wide pavilion rows to dance with wild abandon! Thu, 8 May 2014 08:36:20 EST Thursday May 8 2014 Count down to Summer Tour I always use DMB concerts as motivation for weight loss. Counting down to my first show--Blossom Music Center in Cleveland followed by Pittsburgh the next night (Friday and Saturday--June 27 & 28). Tours starts next Friday in Texas. Anybody going to be there??? Thu, 8 May 2014 08:31:28 EST Warehouse Membership Hello all! <BR> <BR> Do any of you have the Warehouse membership? The perks sound pretty great, so I'm thinking of joining. Will it really be next year when I get the membership package? Fri, 25 Apr 2014 08:59:10 EST Dave Matthews Band Summer Tour 2014 Every year I think, well, I will probably be tired of seeing Dave so many times and at the end of the summer tour I feel satisfied, but 1 month after it is all over, I am sad to think I will have to wait a whole winter to see them!!! Someday I am going to do an international show---I almost did South Africa (I had an au pair from there!). Thank God that band likes touring so much---I always wonder when they will stop but over 20 yrs with such a packed tour is unbelievable! I was going to ... Mon, 27 Jan 2014 07:18:02 EST Close of the summer tour. I am in withdrawal already. Wish I could afford to go to South Africa, Brazil, or Australia! Sat, 14 Sep 2013 22:05:52 EST The Gorge Anyone else wish they were at the Gorge this weekend? <em>39</em> Fri, 30 Aug 2013 17:33:39 EST Thursday August 22nd How are we doing today ladies and gents? I hope well. I wanted to stop by quickly and check in. It's almost the end of the summer in the sense that school is almost back in session. Did anyone do anything wonderful this summer? Any big accomplishments to share? Thu, 22 Aug 2013 18:50:44 EST What is your favorite Dave Matthews Quote? <em>335</em> <em>339</em> <em>432</em> <em>339</em> <em>335</em> <BR> Hi just wondering what your favorite DMB quote is? <BR> <BR> I have several but today it has to be: <BR> "I'll lean on you, and you lean on me, and we'll be okay." - Dave Matthews Band, #34 <BR> <BR> <em>335</em> <em>339</em> <em>432</em> <em>339</em> <em>335</em> Wed, 21 Aug 2013 22:22:38 EST Thursday August 1st So I reviewed Sunday's post. They say you have a much greater chance of attaining your goals if you put it in writing. I am going to have to keep writing!! Today is a new day! Not doing very well with keeping up with the calorie counter, still slipping in minisized candies, but too many of them. Eating lots of fruits and veggies--maybe making that goal. My left foot suddenly started to hurt enough to limp on Tuesday am after an excellent workout on Monday and I have taken a break on Tue... Thu, 1 Aug 2013 00:41:54 EST Sunday July 28th Crunch time, exactly one month until the plane leave to the Gorge. I am so looking forward to this and would like to be 10 lb lighter than I am today. I want to be comfortable in my own skin and have less muffin top and "baby shelf". My baby is 16 now, she'll be going with me and I don't want the shelf to come with me. What a beautiful day today. I hope I can fit in a bike ride but I have a lot of work for work on the computer. Just taking a little break right now to sign in and track fo... Sun, 28 Jul 2013 14:59:02 EST Tuesday July 23rd I wish there were more time in a day. Or that my wake sleep cycles were more stable. I find myself coming home from a long day's work with more work to do at home and feel guilty when I relax just for a little bit after making a little disorganized dinner for my family and end up falling asleep on the couch with my contacts in, waking up at 3 am trying to get the work I needed to get done for the next day, in time to go off to 5:30 am boot camp. Right now my family is asleep, I am here on ... Tue, 23 Jul 2013 03:35:19 EST Sunday July 21st This weekend has been an active one for me. Yesterday did a couple hours weeding and pruning my landscape trying to keep it looking as good as it did for my son's graduation party. Now that the bulk of the work has been done, it just takes a little time for maintenance. Lots of laundry to do after our vacation to Dale Hollow Lake on the KY/TN border. Lots of fun with my family last week--did do some knee boarding but begged out on the slalom skiing and wake boarding---you know I still have... Sun, 21 Jul 2013 20:01:06 EST Thursday July 18th Just back from a wonderful sun and fun vacation! A bit hot but not noticeable when you are cruising on a boat and swimming in the clean wonderful lake of Dale Hollow in Ky/TN. No rain, pure sun and puffy clouds. Did do some work (landscaping for my sister's cabin) and walked in the early morning but did not worry about calories, just tried to eat moderately and head for the healthy summer fruits and veggies/salads. Didn't lose but didn't gain so I think that is a success. Now setting my... Thu, 18 Jul 2013 20:26:54 EST Monday 7/15 Just wanted to stop in and say hi!! I hope all is well and that you are all on track with your different goals! <BR> <BR> Linz Mon, 15 Jul 2013 20:17:29 EST Thurs July 11th Looking forward to the DMB concert at Riversbend tomorrow night! Hope it does not rain because even though I have pavilion seats, we are close the edge on the side that gets drenched!!!! (I've been there before--it was not pretty). Going with my son (coming home from Ohio University summer qtr for the occasion, my daughter, and fellow Spark friend Brad, (BRADMILL2922). We met at Indy and had a blast! Always nice to meet fellow DMB fanatics! <BR> Have been focusing on exercise---I plan o... Thu, 11 Jul 2013 19:48:35 EST Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!! Warm but quite rainy! Looks like my plans of a bike ride on the Little Miami Bike trail are dashed. Guess I will go to Lifetime Fitness. My goal for the rest of this month is daily exercise of some sort 30-60 min (preferably an hour) and a weight loss of 5 lb. Anybody else out there with me? Happy 4th of July! We live with amazing opportunities and freedoms. Thank God for that! Thu, 4 Jul 2013 12:47:47 EST July 2 Trying to get packed to head to Cincy for a few days with the kids. I'm ready for some family time with my Cincy relatives. Hope we have a good weekend! <BR> <BR> Hope you all have a great 4th of July. Stay safe! <BR> <BR> Nikki Tue, 2 Jul 2013 11:49:55 EST Monday, June 24 Hubs and I thought about all of you this weekend. We hated to miss the shows at our favorite venue but it is such a haul for parents with two little ones. Finding sitters and I chronically worry something will happen to both he and I when we are traveling together. I know that's silly but I do. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I hope it was AWESOME!!! <BR> <BR> Love to all! <BR> Nikki <BR> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 10:36:35 EST My Spark Blog Article So my Spark Blog feature posted on Sunday morning! Wow! I am both honored and humbled to be featured in the blog. It is also an honor that the story is in the Success Story section. It is still hard for me to believe at times that I can be considered a success! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>st=fathers_day_success_story_i_want_to<BR>_be_there_for_my_3_kids </link> <BR> <BR> Thank you to Spark for the honor. Thank you to the Spark Community (all of you) for your l... Mon, 17 Jun 2013 00:15:38 EST Thursday June 13, 13 Stayed up late last night thoroughly cleaning my shower so my handyman could caulk it today. Missed early morning boot camp, a kicka** hike up a steep hill off the Little Miami Rive bike trail. Somebody was looking out for me as a deluge from the sky hastened all my friends back to the car about 45 min into the walk. They took solace in that "at least it was warm out". Well, my bed was warm too---****smiling**** I say it's just super-sized cardio. I spent all day spring cleaning, weedi... Thu, 13 Jun 2013 21:06:09 EST Wednesday June 12 Was too busy to linger very long on the computer yesterday but did 72 min of boot camp yesterday and 60 min today. I certainly can feel the difference of a more consistent routine. I just do not get the same toning and soreness with hit or miss 3 or 4 day a week routine. I am hanging out at 173-175--just not tracking which I have to do to lose. Been cheating left and right, can't seem to stop buying and nibbling on sweets. Just have to keep them out of my house and it has been hard to r... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 19:47:25 EST Hi Fellow DMB Loverss I was wonder if you could help me out? <BR> <BR> There is a contest here in the N.E to meet our favorite boys! <BR> <BR><BR>?22 <BR> <BR> if you just go to that link -- thats all it takes to help me meet them! <BR> <BR> You can go everyday and I would appreciate it so much! <BR> <BR> I told others that if they helped me my pledge would be to come onto Spark People everyday for a year!! Please help me out!! thank you!!! Tue, 11 Jun 2013 09:43:17 EST Monday June 10th a rainy morning here This morning, indoor boot camp, 60 min, old school. Lots of sweating on this warm and humid morning. Did lots of "spring cleaning" over the weekend in anticipation for our graduation party. Saturday ate pretty poorly at my nephew's grad party. Too many tempting desserts but could have been worse--didn't no drink any alcohol--just water! <BR> <BR> Eat clean everyone! Mon, 10 Jun 2013 07:01:53 EST Friday June 7th Here is what the Falls of Ohio website describes it as... <BR> <BR> Located on the banks of the Ohio River in Clarksville, Indiana at I-65, exit 0, is the Falls of the Ohio State Park. The 390-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest, naturally exposed, Devonian fossil beds in the world. The park features a spectacular Interpretive Center overlooking the fossil beds containing an exhibit gallery and video presentation. The Interpretive Center is open year round, except Thanksgiving... Fri, 7 Jun 2013 07:59:50 EST Tuesday June 4th the days are getting long-- Lots of daylight!!!!! The Indy weekend will be right on the summer solstice (Sunday the 22nd). This is great for early morning workouts, it is light most the the hour! I love this time of year although fall is my favorite time. September is the best month of the year----warm days, cool nights, blue skies, no humidity. I did 67 min of varied exercise, interval training. Feel good, no weak spots/injuries right now. My old bones are not letting me down! <BR> <BR> Just need to get my eati... Tue, 4 Jun 2013 07:46:58 EST Monday June 3rd Nikki, I thank you for starting this idea for me as far as making a new topic daily. It helps me stay on track. It does not take much time on the computer and even if I have a bad day the day before, it reminds me that everyday is a new day. It is just putting one foot in front of the other, trying to go in the right direction most of the time. If I didn't log into sparkpeople daily, I might spiral out there to somewhere I do not want to be. I want to be healthy and happy with my weight... Mon, 3 Jun 2013 07:30:14 EST Friday May 31st Posting exercise---boot camp Kings High school stadium with Tabata and bleacher runs. Some strength training. Really need to get my eating under control, I need to keep track or I go off. <BR> Stable at 175, would like to push to under 170 by the graduation party. How is everybody else doing? Fri, 31 May 2013 07:57:32 EST Thursday May 30th Posting my exercise from Wednesday and Thursday <BR> Yesterday 60 min at King High School stadium bleacher runs, field drills, jump rope, 100 yd sprints, weighted forward and reverse lunges, banded squats, jumping jacks, reverse pushups, abs. <BR> <BR> Today Little Miami/Miami Bluffs hill climb x2 for 60 min Thu, 30 May 2013 08:46:29 EST Tuesday May 28th a new week though short!

Tue, 28 May 2013 07:22:24 EST Monday May 27th Memorial Day First bike ride accomplished!!!!!! I am so proud of my husband! We did about 9 miles on the Little Miami bike trail, starting slow, since he does not exercise and I don't want him to hate it in the next couple days. It was so beautiful, sunny, cool but warm, no humidity---just perfect weather. I call it heaven weather. I did take some pictures but will have to post them in the near future. We almost ran over a 3 foot juvenile black rat snake that was crossing the trail, he was too quick... Mon, 27 May 2013 15:23:05 EST Sunday May 26th Happy Holiday weekend! Have to work today on the computer---hopefully I can squeeze in a bike ride with my husband, we bought bikes this spring and neither one of us have gone out even once. Hope springs eternal. In between all of this I am doing spring cleaning and weeding the landscape! It is a working holiday in preparation for the big celebration/graduation party for my son Andrew. <BR> <BR> I am also taking time to reflect on those who gave their all for our country and us----especially since it seems tha... Sun, 26 May 2013 13:39:30 EST Friday May 24, 2013 Thursday was a scheduled day off for my hybrid program which meant a little yoga and a little abs. So not really a day off but more like a light day. Also wallked about 75 minutes. Felt good. <BR> <BR> Field day was fun. I got there and it was actually my daughters field day as they had switched the grades around. So I was with them all day and now my son's is today so that should be more fun. It is there last day of school so they are pretty excited! <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a great Fri...

Thu, 23 May 2013 00:55:19 EST Thursday May 23 Wednesday was day 11 of my 100 Day Hybrid Program, Insanity - Plyo Cardio Circuit. The hardest workout of the 11 days so far but felt great! I literally was able to ring out my shirt when I was done! <BR> <BR> I have my son's field day coming up today! He is in 2nd grade so this is the 3rd field day I have gone to with him and I wouldn't miss it for anything. It is a lot of fun watching him run around and do things with the other kids. Supposed to be a really nice day weather wise as well s... Thu, 23 May 2013 00:40:51 EST Thursday May 23rd 2013 Hi guys! While Brad had been ripping it up, I have slacked off. This is an off week for my boot camp and I have had trouble doing it on my own despite getting up early, having all the means to do something and the great weather and patio and 10 acres to do it. No excuses. Thursday is generally my "day off" ---at least I try to choose what kind of work I will do on that day---so I am going to bed now--its 12:08 am --just starting the day--- to get up later this morning to do a good workout... Thu, 23 May 2013 00:13:11 EST Monday May 20th Had a pretty good weekend hanging out with the kids. Took the girls to their end of the school year girl scout banquet and that was pretty nice. Even better was I avoided all of the cake, hamburgers, and chips that I could have had! Awesome! DID NOT eat any of it! <BR> <BR> Weighed in on Friday and had lost 6 lbs in the first 6 days of my 100 Day Hybrid program! More awesome! Only 19 lbs. away from the goal I set for myself about 54 weeks ago! <BR> <BR> Looks like the summer DMB tour is off...

Fri, 17 May 2013 02:35:53 EST Friday May 17th Happy Official Start of The Summer Tour Day! Sure wish I was at the Woodlands today! Saw them there in 2010 and it was fantastic! Best "Two Step" I ever did see!!! <BR> <BR> Glad to see that Spark is back up and working after being offline for like 9 hours! What's up with that? <BR> <BR> Anyways, I did Day 5 of my 100 Day Hybrid yesterday which was Tap Out XT - Plyo XT and P90x2 - X2 Ab Ripper. Quite a workout day for sure! <BR> <BR> Now that Spark is back up, I will resume with my thanki... Fri, 17 May 2013 02:22:15 EST Thursday May 16 I hope everyone is getting back on track! I know how hard it can be and I hate to hear about people struggling to get on track! It is hard but it is worth the sacrifices in the end. One foot in front of the other, one day at a time. I know you all can do it! <BR> <BR> Today I finished day 4 of my 100 Day Hybrid program I made up of the hardest workouts of the programs I have finished already (Insanity, P90x, Tap Out XT, and Les Mills Combat). The first 4 days have gone great and I am enjoyin... Thu, 16 May 2013 02:04:53 EST Tuesday May 14 I come with my head hanging low. Ashamed of my lack of interest in anything exercise or eating correctly. i've already blown today and it is only 8:30, but no sense in continuing down the path so I'll straighten up right this minute. Off to see what Quickfire is. Once I get some adrenaline going perhaps I will straighten myself up!!!! Tue, 14 May 2013 09:26:35 EST Sunday May 12 Happy Mother's Day everyone! Up bright and early on this sunny cool morning, a perfect day to go to church, attend my nephew's baptism and my son's baccalaureate Mass for his graduation from Moeller HS. I might slip in some time for pulling a few weeds in my landscape and planting a few flowers in anticipation of his graduation party. Won't have time for a bike ride most likely, would like to break in my new bike---I bought it more than a month ago and have not had time to ride it at al... Sun, 12 May 2013 09:17:37 EST Warehouse Annual Gift Packet/CD Have been playing my new annual warehouse CD, this time with 10 tracks! Some new and some old songs played in the years 2007-2012 which means it includes Butch Taylor on any songs recorded in 2007 (Butch ditched the band days before the opening of the summer tour in 2008, the same year as LeRoi's accident and untimely death . Rashawn plays on all, I believe he started touring with the band with LeRoi on the summer tour of 2006. Tim started again in 2008, the last time he toured with them wa... Fri, 10 May 2013 19:45:26 EST Friday May 10 Hellloooo? Hi everybody. I need some outside motivation, I am doing well on my diet plan and making progess. I missed my early am bootcamp and would like someone to post their exercise to challenge me to exercise tonight at some point before bed. I would also like to keep it up and make some time this weekend to exercise Saturday and Sunday. I belong to a gym but hardly ever use it, I need to do some cardio and strength. Fri, 10 May 2013 13:38:46 EST Thursday May 9 Sorry guys, have not been on the boards for a few days as everything has been crazy around here----have not posted calorie counts which helps me a lot----it is MOST important when I am doing poorly, it keeps me in check----but lately I have been doing pretty well on eating. I hope to see the scale moving soon. Here I started the May challenge of posting exercise minutes and have not been posting so here goes: Saturday May 4th worked in am, housework in afternoon, traveled an hour to my... Thu, 9 May 2013 07:08:11 EST may 4 Happy Derby Day <BR> <BR> Have friends coming over tonight. It has turned cold and rainy. I made gumbo last night in prep for today's dreary weather. May or may not have more people then the original small quaint group. Seems husband and I enjoyed some bourbon last night and said "sure come to the house and watch the derby" Ironic since hubs works on Saturdays and won't even be here for post. Lol! <BR> <BR> Sigh. Well, I exercised a few times this week. I tried to eat on plan yesterday whic... Sat, 4 May 2013 09:24:48 EST thursday May 2nd Met friends at the Little Miami Bike Trail at Fosters Bridge. Brisk walk for about 1/2 mile, then up a steep hill that always amazes me as to how winded I get no matter how many times I do it, repeat hill climb again, and walk briskly back about 1/2 mile. Sometimes I jog it but not this time. Total time 55 min, 2.87 mi, calories burned 325. Thu, 2 May 2013 09:23:57 EST Tuesday April 30th 60 min of exercise--outside 45 degrees at 5:30--- unbelievably light outside by 6:30---I love exercising outside in the early morning this time of year---it only gets warmer and lighter until the summer solstice. Some weights, lunges, squats, sprints--big variety in boot camp---and I am done! Yeah! Tue, 30 Apr 2013 08:30:12 EST May 2013 Challenge We can start early on these last few days of April but check in on this thread daily if you did 30 minutes of exercise strenuous to raise a sweat (pictures welcome ;-). Tell us what you did and how it made you feel. Or check in even if you did not do the exercise and tell us something good about the day! Sun, 28 Apr 2013 13:48:05 EST Saturday April 27 Rainy and dreary. sparking while on the treadmill which is a challlenge with incline and speed I'm going. Forces me to use core though to stabilize so I can type. <BR> <BR> I haven't gotten my food right yet but I walked a long time Thursday.

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 01:18:56 EST Top DMB Studio Tracks Of All-Time Voted on by members at What do you guys think of this list? <BR> <BR> 25. Rapunzel For all intents and purposes, it’s Pantala Naga Pampa and Rapunzel, since the two are inseparable. There’s a special moment at the end of Rapunzel; Butch Taylor. Butch’s keys at the end give the end jam a bit of funk, and it works so well. Also of note are Tim’s fills during the verse. The song is really well laid out on the album. <BR> <BR> <BR> 24.

I've strayed and I don't want it to get out of town. I totally agree with your comments to last Thursday's post. You are right. For me, Sparkpeople is the reason for my success. My breakfast choice this morning was not good but I logged it and it's time to get back with it! <BR> <BR> I hope all of you are well. I hope we can keep this up and support each other! <BR> <BR> Have a good one. I'm o... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 09:26:20 EST Looking for my daily DMB song! Loving your posts on the daily DMB song!

Toasty warm! <BR> <BR> I'm back and am planning to head to work for 8am tomorrow. I'm hoping to speak with my bosses tomorrow about getting to work early and taking an hour lunch to go to the gym.

Whaaaaa??? <BR> <BR> This isn't the girl I've become. This isn't the girl that is getting ready to go to DMB in a few days and a much anticipated trip in two weeks. <BR> <BR> This isn't me!!!

Wed, 3 Apr 2013 15:32:21 EST Monday April 3 I'm struggling, guys. <BR> <BR> I'll survive. I'll pull myself up. I'm just burned out. I've injured my foot and that is keeping cardio out. It should be better soon though. It's not a bad injury. Honestly, I don't even know what I did to it. <BR> <BR> Dave is in 3 days!!! I have that to hold on to. Limiting Pandora to DMB radio only this week. <BR> <BR> Have a good one everybody. Hope you are all well. Been quite this week Wed, 3 Apr 2013 12:41:33 EST Tuesday 4/2 I did ok yesterday. Two Quickfire sets and walked outside for 45 min. I kept getting interrupted by my son but I got some good cardio in, in spurts but some in nonetheless. Eating showed a slight improvement <BR> <BR> Today I'll give it all a whirl again. Although I doubt I'll get any cardio in. Tuesday and Thursdays we have extra curricular activities and I don't get home until later. It's a rush to do the school night routine in before bed time. <BR> <BR> A team member on a another board... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 06:41:27 EST Monday April 1st Can you believe a quarter of the year is gone already? <BR> I'm in shock. The older I get the faster the years go. <BR> <BR> Yesterday, I did ok considering. I ate only ham and salads at Family Easter. I know the salads had sugar in them but I'm hoping not too much and it was a better option than Mac and cheese casserole, bread, dressing, etc. <BR> <BR> I worked some in the car which I guess was good use of time. <BR> <BR> Have a good day today. I'm off to see what today's QF challenge... Mon, 1 Apr 2013 06:37:44 EST happy easter Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. I was so busy, yet nothing productive. I think I'm just burned out. Burned out on work, juggling work and time with kids and not feeling like either is sufficient, the daily grind. Which means I forgo time for me. <BR> <BR> I was terrible yesterday. I gave into carb cravings. I did little activity, nothing I would count towards "cardio". I did move last week but only twice did I really push myself. <BR> <BR> Now, Easter Sunday, I'm on the treadmill at 5:0... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 06:16:42 EST Daily DMB Song 03.30.13 - "Stolen Away..."

I did all the Quickfires for yesterday which was pushups and I finished the ones that I didn't do on Monday as well - curtsy lunges. <BR> I ran a bit during my treadmill routine and did Coach Nicole's 10 minute crunchless ab workout. I ate on plan. I do need to go log my dinner still but I know I'm ok for the day. <BR> <BR> I'm at work already. I'm an hour and half later then what I wanted to be here, but I'm here.

I only got one set of Quickfires in. <BR> <BR> I'm going to make up for it all today, get back on healthy eating and move on. <BR> <BR> I'm seriously considering packing up my things and working from home today.

I know we won't make it Easter as we go to visit Grandparents and are traveling during church times. <BR> <BR> I wasn't paying attention yesterday and had incline on 5%. That's great but I decided to run. I couldn't figure out why I was so sucking wind so bad. Finally after half a mile I realized.

It's 5:30 and I've already done one return. Ugh! I don't know what I have planned today after work. Other than Grocery, squeeze in some exercise and find something to do with the kids.

You can't go wrong with 3 DMB shows, a Dave & Tim show, plus a bunch of other bands. And the setlist was perfect! If anyone else went, what did you think? Tue, 28 Jun 2011 10:25:47 EST I can't believe there's a DMB group!! I was trying to think "what are some of my favourite things?" and when I plugged in "Dave Matthews Band" I couldn't believe I found one. But should I really be surprised since fans are such supportive and friendly people?! <BR> <BR> I've been going strong on my program with Sparkpeople, which is really just to keep active and aware of my goals and steps. I love this place! It's been the source of a lot of my motivation lately, support and inspiration. <BR> <BR> So, just checking in to ...

From new team member and relatively new to SP My name is Cheri and I live in North Central Texas. I was so tickled to find a Spark Team for DMB fans. I've been a passionate fan for years! No other band has such an awesome collection of musical genius. Sun, 5 Jul 2009 14:54:33 EST New Challenge - Any Takers? Hey DMB sparks- <BR> Last year we ran a challenge in which each participant picked their own goal, tracked it, and reported in weekly how they were doing. I would like to do this again. <BR> <BR> Anyone interested? <BR> <BR> There will be small prizes for top participants (stickers, etc). Hoping we can get the ball rolling again! <BR> <BR> Please post in the thread if you would like to be involved; I will post more information very soon. <BR> <BR> Peace, Love & Big Whiskey! <BR> <BR> ~...

Hi there! I'm a newbie to SP and just starting to get the hang of it. I was browsing through teams and was soooo excited to be a part of this team. I love Dave Matthews & listen to him every day! Just went to see him in Oklahoma City last week & he played with Tim Reynolds. It was AWESOME!!! Sun, 24 Aug 2008 21:40:16 EST DMB Sax player LeRoi Moore has Died I am so very sorry to pass this on.

Tue, 19 Aug 2008 22:33:11 EST Team Member Pat Collins Passed away To the Friends of Pat: <BR> <BR> I was honored to receive a telephone call from Pat's mother this evening who sadly called to inform me of his sudden death August 3 from an apparent heart attack. Pat's mother told me that she knows how much he cared for his Spark friends and how much they meant to him.. It was in her grief and sorrow, that **she** was reaching out to **me** -- to all of us -- concerned that we would worry about Pat. What an incredible woman!!! And just like Pat, I felt like ... Sun, 17 Aug 2008 21:29:46 EST Spark newbie, DMB oldie Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> Just joined today and feeling really hopeful! And how great is find fellow DMB'ers here! Pretty exciting stuff! Sun, 3 Aug 2008 01:19:40 EST DMB fan from KY Hi y'all! I've loved Dave since the 1st time I saw/heard him, on Letterman show singing 'ants go marching'. Those eyebrows! That silly way of dancing he has! My main regret is being so thrifty and buying his stuff on cassette instead of CD, floppy drive wont accept cassettes :( Sat, 2 Aug 2008 23:49:31 EST tickets for sale... I have a set of lawn seats for Alpine Valley, August 10th. I've been unsuccessful at getting rid of them through the warehouse so I thought I'd post them here too. anyone interested? face+fees+shipping <BR> sparkmail or email me at Thu, 24 Jul 2008 11:33:45 EST What are one of your best qualities? We are so much more than our weight but sometimes we don't recognize it within ourselves. So brag a little, and tell me...what is one of your best qualities? <BR> <BR> Mine is positivity. I think we get back what we put into the world, so I try to spread as much light and love as possible to everyone. On those occasions that reality tries to creep in, I remind myself that I get what I give, so if I start letting my bad day spread to others, it's not going to get any better! <BR> <BR> You... Mon, 21 Jul 2008 06:49:52 EST What did you do RIGHT today? You know, we spend so much time talking about how we 'ate wrong' or 'didn't exercise' in the weight-loss process...I thought maybe we could talk about what went right today. <BR> <BR> So tell me...what did you do RIGHT today? I am going to avoid the cookies in the bakery today, I know it's one thing that calls to me that I can do right today. <BR> <BR> ~~best~~ <BR> Diana <em>67</em> Mon, 21 Jul 2008 06:45:04 EST DMB Sax Player Seriously Injured in ATV Ax Dave Matthews' sax player has been seriously injured in an ATV accident. <BR> <BR> 46-year-old LeRoi Moore was on a break between concerts when he was injured riding the rig at his farm outside Charlottesville, VA. He was transported to UVA Medical Center, where he's listed in fair condition. <BR> <BR> A statement on the band's website said "Please join us all in wishing LeRoi a speedy and complete recovery." <BR> <BR> Jeff Coffin, saxophonist of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, will sit in... Tue, 1 Jul 2008 22:56:03 EST Post your city's DMB set list here... I thought we could post our DMB tour stories and share his set lists here for Dave's Summer Tour. So disappointed it's done for me. <BR> <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> I went to see Dave Tuesday and Wednesday night (June 3rd and 4th) and by far Wednesday was the BEST Dave show I have seen. I think he felt bad because it's an ampitheatre so alot of the audience (including me) were outdoors and it poured about halfway through Tuesday's show right up until the end including waiting in the long Ferr...

Fri, 30 May 2008 13:28:44 EST Official June 6 week challenge OK, with Memorial Day, long weekend etc., I figured it may be better to start the next 6 week challenge officially on June first. This will be the thread for team discussion and I will start another thread for posting progress. <BR> <BR> Those of us that were part of the first challenge, we will continue to track our original "healthy habit" that we hopefully developed and will also chose another one to track. <BR> <BR> In the goals and updates thread we will post our progress each day...

Honestly, I could use the money, but I need the music (and with Tim. TIM!, Like a junkie, sadly I am). <... Thu, 22 May 2008 19:20:21 EST NEXT 6 WEEK CHALLENGE??? Hey there Dave Fans. Now that our 6 week challenge is on it's last week, I think we need to plan to stick with it and add our next healthy habit that we want to develop. You pick your new healthy habit and we will continue to track our original habit that we should have developed by now and add a new one. Any takers??? <BR> <BR> Challenge newbies can just climb on board for the first time. Pick their new habit and log it each day, just as we did before. Mon, 19 May 2008 13:06:05 EST Anybody watch SNL the past Sat? So I am told that there was a hysterical impersonation of David in a skit on SNL, as well as Ashton Kutcher doing John Mayor. Did anyone see it? I tried to find a clip on youtube, but only found a pretty lousy one.

Drop by my sparkpage and look at my photos for a pic of my son, father, and someone you may recognize ;) Fri, 4 Apr 2008 13:00:45 EST 2008 Tour Announced!!! I am so excited!!! Impatiently waiting to request tickets for Deer Creek/Verizon in Noblesville on July 25 & 26!! Cannot wait! Where is everyone else going? <em>236</em> Thu, 6 Mar 2008 10:53:21 EST Where to you spend more time? Spark or Warehouse I split time between the two. I do more lurking then anything but can't wait for the tour to be announced so there will be more action on the WH boards. Wed, 30 Jan 2008 21:50:14 EST Were you and your spouse fans of DMB before? Is it something that you had to introduce them to or is that why you met? <BR> <BR> My wife had some of the CD's but wasnt really all the much into it before me. She is into country and shares that aspect with me. So we go to a lot of shows, both country and DMB. She has grown to enjoy the concert but isnt all in yet, she could do without back to back shows. Tue, 22 Jan 2008 13:41:34 EST Do you have a favorite DMB running/working out mix I put together a really good mix for the treadmill of all DMB. I have been running to it for a while and like the fact that I can time how much longer I have by the song that's on, plus I kick it up at certain parts like, when "She feels like kicked out all of the windows and setting fire to this life..." , but I think I want another mix. Who is perfect to ask buy you guys/girls? <BR> <BR> My mix: Warm up: Where are you going <BR> Work out: Rapunzel, Two Step; Grey Street; All Along the W...

I've been going to Dave shows since I was in the 7th grade and I cannot tell you how aggrivating it is that in this city whenever someone mentions DMB the subsequent conversation seems to only be consumed with talk of the ill ...
