Dave Matthews Band 2019

REVERB and Dave Matthews Band have partnered together since 2005 to take action for the planet. In 2019, the band became a founding member of Music Climate Revolution bringing the program (formerly known as unCHANGEit) on tour with REVERB. The band and their fans raised money to put solar panels on low-income housing the band helped build in Charlottesville, VA. Fans also took pledges to reduce their climate footprint in the Eco-Village at every show.
