“We are proud to join forces with one of music’s most prolific performing artists to create Dave Matthews Band Radio,” said Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Music Programming for SiriusXM. “The limited-run channel wouldn’t be complete without lots of live concert performances and we’re excited to bring DMB fans across North America a live concert from the band every Friday night in July.”
Dave Matthews Band, whose music can be heard across a wide range of SiriusXM channels, says, “We are thrilled to partner with SiriusXM again to bring our fans a full month of non-stop Dave Matthews Band music. We are especially excited to have the opportunity to broadcast four concerts from our current tour to SiriusXM subscribers.”
