Crystal Garden is a the brainchild of Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley, who spent the last two years searching North America for amazing musicians to bring together and form the band.
On April 12, Crystal Garden played their first show to a sold out crowd at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA. One concert goer said, “Crystal Garden killed it tonight! You would think that they have been playing together for years. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for these guys.”
Tinsley sat in on four songs during the performance, and by the end of the night, the band was getting a standing ovation. Due to the show selling out so quickly, Crystal Garden has announced that they will be retuning to Charlottesville soon for a second show in the near future. See their debut setlist below.
The band’s debut album, Let the Rocks Cry Out was produced by Tinsley and also features guitarist Stanley Jordan. To see the documentary series Tinsley has produced about the forming of Crystal Garden, go to the band’s website.
