Yesterday evening, the duo of longtime collaborators Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds closed out the main stage at New Orleans Jazz Fest, and the two guitarist brought out a couple of special guests in Jimmy Buffett and their Dave Matthews Band band mate Rashawn Ross.
After running through a set of DMB staples like “Crush,” “Satellite,” “Jimi Thing” and “Two Step,” Matthews welcomed Buffett to the stage. The collaboration started some stage banter that included Buffett saying “If I stand here long enough next to Tim Reynolds, I hope that I’ll be able to play like him when I leave.” He also referenced the blue skies and addressed the New Orleans audience, saying, “Allen Toussaint brought this weather today.” The trio of guitarists then launched into Buffett’s “A Pirate Looks at 40.”
After Buffett left the stage, Matthews and Reynolds brought out DMB horn player Ross to add trumpet to the set-closing run of “Corn Bread,” “Grey Street” and “Ants Marching,” along with an encore of “What Would You Say.”
