What to Expect
Audience members can expect an accurate reproduction of the Dave Matthews Band experience. Technical playing combined with a loose "jam band" song structure are paramount to the live performance. Layered musicianship and diverse musical instrumentation create a thick, cohesive overall sound.
Antz Marching was formed when a gathering of like-minded musicians came together with the hopes of recreating the essence of a Dave Matthews Band live performance. DMB has always been a performance-based band giving fans a different experience at each show. They maintain a level of musicianship that is rarely seen in popular music groups today. In order to recreate this performance aspect of DMB, it was necessary to assemble a collection of musicians that could support the same musical instruments and rival the talent level of the original act. The members of Pittsburgh’s own DMB cover band, Antz Marching, have achieved this goal.
Antz Marching is comprised of 6 members, each of which has been involved in the professional musical scene for the majority of their career. Every member of the band is a veteran of the local Pittsburgh music scene and several of the members have even achieved advanced degrees in musical theory and performance. While the members of Antz Marching are in their 30’s and 40’s, they have a combined total of 180 years of playing expertise. This combination of experience, along with each members dedication to his/her craft, has allowed Antz Marching to give fans an experience similar to a live DMB performance but in a much more intimate setting. This talented group dedicates their time, effort, and talents to continuing the Dave Matthews’s legacy and love for music.
