Experience

We've got a whole lot of amigos joining us on the beach (and by the pool!) this year. View the full daily schedule and lineup below.
DAVE MATTHEWS & TIM REYNOLDS

Our hosts, Dave & Tim, met more than 25 years ago in Charlottesville, Virginia and have been collaborating ever since. Their rare performances as an acoustic duo (and even more rare performances on the beach) allow fans to experience their special chemistry up-close, as they strip down each song to its essence and tell stories. Matthews and Reynolds have released three live double-CDs: 1999’s multi-Platinum Live At Luther College, Live At Radio City (2007) and Live In Las Vegas.

Matthews is best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for Dave Matthews Band, which has sold a collective 38 million units (CD and DVD combined) since the 1994 release of its major label debut, Under the Table and Dreaming. In 2003, he released his solo debut, Some Devil, which Reynolds played on. Reynolds founded the breakthrough electric power trio TR3 (Tim Reynolds Trio) and has also released a series of solo albums. He has performed on nearly all of Dave Matthews Band’s albums and has been touring with the band full-time since 2008.

Dave Matthews Band will release Walk Around The Moon – their 10th studio album and the follow-up to their chart-topping 2018 album, Come Tomorrow – on May 19, 2023. Walk Around the Moon took shape during the pandemic and is as much a reflection on the current times as it is an urge to find common ground.

THE WAR & TREATY

Since forming in 2014, The War And Treaty have amassed a following as eclectic as their sound itself, a bluesy but joyful fusion of Southern soul, gospel, country, and rock-and-roll. Known for a live show nearly revival-like in intensity, the husband-and-wife team of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount-Trotter endlessly create an exhilarating exchange of energy with their audience, a dynamic they’ve brought to the stage in opening for the legendary Al Green and touring with the likes of Brandi Carlile and Jason Isbell. So when it came time to choose a title for their forthcoming sophomore album, The War And Treaty quickly landed on Hearts Town—the Nashville duo’s adoring nickname for their ardently devoted fanbase.

MT. JOY

An indie folk-rock outfit with a soulful bent, Mt. Joy take their name from a peak inside a Pennsylvania National Park near where founding members Matt Quinn and Sam Cooper grew up. The band rode a series of self-released singles to viral streaming success in the late 2010s before joining the Dualtone label for their eponymous 2018 debut. Their 2020 follow-up, Rearrange Us, cracked the pop charts, setting the table for their thoughtful, brightly hued third set, 2022's Orange Blood.

SHOVELS & ROPE

Shovels & Rope consists of married singer/songwriters Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst. Like Trent, who also played with the indie rock band the Films, Hearst had spent the years prior pursuing a solo career, utilizing her raw yet melodious and expressive voice to deliver a handful of albums, one of which landed a single, "Hell's Bells," in the 2010 season of True Blood. Inspired by the likes of Woody Guthrie, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, the Cramps, and the soulful harmonies of Johnny Cash and June Carter, the pair provided tour support for like-minded artists such as Justin Townes Earle, Hayes Carll, and the Felice Brothers before heading into the studio to lay down the tracks for their debut. The resulting O' Be Joyful, which channeled country, bluegrass, and blues through a nervy indie rock prism, was released in 2012. The album fared well with critics and roots music fans, and at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards, Shovels & Rope were named Best Emerging Artist.
