Dave Matthews Band to Launch Limited-Run SiriusXM Channel
 
The rumors were true. The rumblings heard in the parking lots at Camden thanks to the SiriusXM producers interviewing fans has borne fruit. Dave Matthews Band Radio will launch on SiriusXM channel 3 on Monday, July 2 at noon ET. The channel will be a month-long limited run partnership between the band and the satellite radio outfit, now boasting over 32 million subscribers.

The announcement was made during another SiriusXM event; Dave's interview with Howard Stern this morning. Per the press release, the channel will include "songs, demo tracks and musical influences." The latter two might cause you to pull that classic Dave Matthews eyebrow; just how behind-the-scenes this material gets will be interesting to learn.

In addition to the aforementioned content, the channel will also play host to the DMB Friday Night Concert Series. Each Friday night during the channel's limited run, the channel will air a live concert. Looking at the DMB Summer Tour 2018 Calendar, that means that Deer Creek N1, SPAC N1, Raleigh, NC, and WPB N1 will all be live streamed to Dave Matthews Band Radio.

Per the press release, the band stated, “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.” Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Programming for SiriusXM, said "We are proud to join forces with one of music’s most prolific performing artists to create Dave Matthews Band Radio. 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.” SiriusXM’s Dave Matthews Band Radio begins on Monday, July 2 at noon ET via satellite on channel 3 and through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at SiriusXM.com.

This is made twice as cool seeing as I just got a month free when I bought a new car.

I'm guessing they're gonna play just about every LT and DMBLive track in existence.

Very excited about this channel, I didn't have Sirius last time they did this. If anyone hears anything noteworthy (demos?), mention it in here.

I wonder how something like this could effect set lists for the show being live streamed. Especially the N1 shows, you would think that they wouldn't want to have as much duplication in those.

Or because it’s limited they’ll use it as a commercial opportunity and not play as much of that


but i’m super hopeful

Guarantee this news won’t affect the setlists one bit. I doubt Dave or anybody else weighing in on the set lists is like “No! You can’t play #41 tonight because you played it night 1 in a different city a week ago!”

I know you can get 30 day trial memberships, but will there be ways to replay this Friday night shows? Or rip them somehow? It’s pretty cool that we will have 4 professionally recorded live shows coming

They need to do this permanently. That would get me excited.

If they were to offer the four shows as a CD or download, I’d buy all four.

I feel like as a fanbase, we have more available than they will stream through Sirius. Although I don't have Sirius so I might just be justifying that to my own self - ha

ETA: Cool to see they are airing SPAC N1!

Re: Dave Matthews Band to Launch Limited-Run SiriusXM Channel
 
The previous channel description/announcement never mentioned anything about demos so I'm excited for that aspect of it but not holding my breath.

From 2012: "Listeners will hear band members personally introduce each song off the group’s upcoming eighth studio album, Away From the World, scheduled for release September 11, plus hear the band share stories about the songs, each other and their 20-year career. Dave Matthews Band Radio will also feature music from the band’s entire catalog, concert recordings, as well as music from Dave Matthews’ side projects as a solo artist and with Tim Reynolds."

I got XM with my new car a couple months ago. I don't understand this service. The sound quality is poor compared to using Spotify or even youtube via bluetooth, and the signal craps out all over the place. I live 15 miles north of Seattle, and experience drops all around town (not like I live in an irrelevant area or anything).

Normally I'd be excited for this news, but it's useless to me given how terrible XM radio is.

Yep, have you looked at the setlists this year? I think they forgot what a setlist is and hired a third party to write 'em.

As a sirius subscriber I hope the dmb fanbase pushes to make this channel permanent. I think dmb has a strong enough following to merit a full time channel. If you are a sirius subscriber and dmb tell them to keep the channel on.

I'm always for any means to get DMB music out there, but I don't understand Sirius for myself. I get there is a "premium radio" market, but with Spotify and Youtube, why do I need it?

Yeah definitely. I pay for Spotify family ($14.99/month). I guess I don't see the appeal of adding Sirius. I'm seeking someone who enjoys it and thinks it's great to tell me why it's worth the bread.

Because there's content (like Howard Stern interviewing Dave Matthews) that isn't on spotify, YouTube Red, et al.

If that's not enough to get you to sign up, that's fine, it's not enough for me either. But it's a pretty simple explanation haha

At the normal price its kind of outrageous but they offer so many deals as to where you can get a year for $60.

Theres some good channels and its a good option for someone who just wants the convenience of it in their car.

Stern
NPR
Live sports
Jam On
Spectrum
Petty Channel
GD channel
PJ channel
Shade 45


Theres enough there to make it worth $5 a month. Good for discovering new music too.

Thanks, guys. (Listened to Dave on Stern this morning without a subscription, btw)

Steps for free trial of Sirius without having to use a credit card:

1. https://www.siriusxm.com/hsbb30daytrial
2. Enter information, but leave promo code space blank and submit.
3. If it doesn't work, check to make sure it didn't insert a code for you automatically. If so, remove it and resubmit. Eventually it will process and send you an email with your password.
4. Go here and log in: https://player.siriusxm.com/welcome
5. In the rare instance your log in doesn't work, reset your password and the new password they send you should work.

I'm just saying that if they are live streaming these 4 shows, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that Dave would want to try to minimize the amount of songs played multiple times. 4 shows streamed I'm not sure it would make sense to have each one be 80% the same as the other one as seems to be the case this tour.
