Charlottesville band Sokoband has a new album coming out, and some unreleased performance from LeRoi Moore are featured. According to jambands.com, facilitated by the great music magazine Relix, Dave and Tim are both also contributing to the instrumental trio.
The album is slated for release March 9, 2010. Sokoband has been around since 1990, previously performing as Soko. Dave is clearly a fan, he even provided a quote on their official site praising the group.
Tim Reynolds was kind enough to grant an interview while in Las Vegas with the Sun-Sentinel, a South Florida based periodical. And writer Mike Rothman was kind enough to loan the interview to us. Tim covers a number of topics, as he often does, and gives a nice history of his band and his playing, including some tid-bits on the Dave and Tim shows. Assisting in the interview is Corey Martignetti, who is a big DMB fan in his own right (hence the DMB focused questions)
Have a read here to find out a little bit more about Tim.
Because of shipping laws, Blenheim can only ship to certain states (California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia, Washington and Washington D.C.). So if you don't live in one of those, you can't get your wine-on. However, if you'd like to purchase an 18x24 poster of the wine label drawn by Dave, you can do that via their store regardless of where you live.
Stefan's side project, Yukon Kornelius, will perform December 11 in Vail, CO, according to an email from The Warehouse. The performance, sponsored by theBud Light Concert Series, is part of the Vail's Snow Daze event.
Also performing are The Barenaked Ladies (which are neither) on December 12 - which feature Ed Robertson (also a YK member) and Robert Randolph and the Family Band on December 13. You can pre-order tickets via The Warehouse now, but in addition to that, they are giving away a great ski weekend package that includes a hotel, round trip airfare, ski tickets, and travel to and from the Denver airport. Check out the Warehouse for more info!
If you're not familiar with Yukon Kornelius, it is a side project featuring Stefan, the aforementioned Robertson of The Barenaked Ladies (which still are neither), Adam Gardner from Guster and drummer Eric Fawcett from N*E*R*D. The shows are fun, action packed shows made up of cover songs from the 70's and 80's mainly, and lucky for YK, their biggest fan is former Twisted Sister front man Dee Snyder. And he loves stopping by for shows and singing a few songs. So basically the shows bring the awesome.
Moore kept the album to the basics; there is no digital at all on the recording. Not even reverb. The goal of the sound is to capture that smokey jazz feel from the 1950's or 1960's, and it sounds like Moore accomplished that. His real goal, however, was just to get Farrell to enjoy her work. "I just want her to love music," Moore said.
LeRoi Moore is the producer of Luminous, now available via iTunes (iTunes link). The horn play laid out by Moore is performed by John D'Earth and Bobby Read, long time jazz musicians from Charlottesville, VA. You can sample some of Farrell's sound via her MySpace page, or you can watch a video of the song Fade Away on YouTube. Additionally, you Facebookers can take a shot at her facebook page.

Three years after its release, Tribe of Heaven's album is practically sold out.
Imagine We Were - the 1989 album featuring Mark Roebuck and Dave Matthews has sold extremely well - considering that it's only available online at CD baby. The initial first printing of that album has almost run its course, with only a few CD's left. So if you'd like to get this collectors edition release, now would be the time to order it.
In case this is your first experience with the internet, or you've been in seclusion for the past 3 years, Tribe Of Heaven is an duo comprised of Dave and Mark Roebuck - who at that time was late of the popular C'ville band The Deal. Dave co-wrote 3 songs on the album - the resurrected-by-DMB Song That Jane Likes, Imagine We Were, and One War. The rest of the songs were written by Roebuck, except a great rendition of U2's In God's Country. Greg Howard's studio was the location for the recording of the album, and he provided keyboards on a few tracks as well.
Use the above link to get your mittens (for those of you in the snowy realm of the East Coast of the US) on the actual album, surely a collectors item and a must have for any DMB fan.

If you don't know Little Feat - first shame on you - they sing the song Dixie Chicken, which Dave has used during the outro for Crash Into Me for years. On the album, Dixie Chicken is performed with Vince Gill and Sonny Landreth.
The album hits stores August 26, but will be available exclusively from iTunes July 1 via this link (the link isn't good until July 1). You can also preview the tracks here from all the artists.
