Dave Matthews Band took the stage at the Susquehanna Bank Center along the waterfront in Camden, NJ for the first of two shows Friday night. This summer tour the band is veering from their usual one, long set and spliting their shows into 2 sets. The first set is being called 'acoustic' and the second set dubbed 'electric,' although with the instrumentation of DMB the two aren't very different.

Acting as their own opening act, the band took the stage for the Acoustic set with a stripped down setup around 7:30. Stefan Lessard exchanged his electric bass for an upright which he played for the first three songs before switching to an acoustic bass guitar for the rest of the set. Tim Reynolds also dropped the electric for an acoustic guitar. Everyone else was carrying their normal instrument. Carter Beauford did opt for a scaled down kit for this set. It only included a kick, snare, high hat, ride, a few congas and bongos, and some cymbals.

The band stood close together towards the front of the stage. There was a back drop right behind them blocking off most stage. It was still somewhat daylight but they did have some retro light fixtures. The whole setup had an intimate feel like we were getting to see the band back in a club or small venue. Hearing songs like "Recently" and "Ants Marching" live and acoustic felt like it was 20 years ago when Remember Two Thing was first released. Bookending the set were also two excellent takes on classics, "Two Step" and "What Would You Say." Sometimes it takes a keen ear to really distinguish the band in 'acoustic' mode vs. what it would be normally. However, Stefan's bass comes through nicely at times, Tim's acoustic arrangements are very crisp, and Carter's percussion was on point.

Set break didn't last too long, the band came back around 9:00. The curtain rose, leaving a see-through screen in the front of the stage. You could see the lighting trusses were configured like a box, up the side walls and along the roof, creating a huge performance space underneath, in stark contrast to the tight space in the first set. The band started to play a spacy jam, and as if to let you know right away this is the 'Electric' set, banks of lasers shot from the back of the stage and onto the screen drawing patterns. When the screen rose the beams spilled out into the pavilion along with the amazing light show and big sound. It was time for a rock concert.

The nearly sold out crowd responded to hits like "So Much to Say," "Too Much," and "Satellite" as well as fan favorites "Proudest Monkey" and "The Song that Jane Likes." "Dancing Nancies" segued into "Warehouse" was a perfect way to end the night before "Tripping Billies" to close the show. After a short break they returned for a solid encore. The evening was all over about 11:00.

The band will be back at the Susquehanna Bank Center again on Saturday night at 7pm. Some tickets are still available.

Tonight's show included guest trumpeter, Matt Cappy, who is a New Jersey native and has played with everyone from The Roots, Elvis Costello, Jill Scott, Maxwel, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Mos Def, Common, Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, etc.
