Dave Matthews Band

Formed in the early '90s by South African vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews, the Dave Matthews Band presented a more pop-oriented version of the Grateful Dead crossed with elements of jazz, funk, and the worldbeat explorations of Paul Simon and Sting.

Another bewildering success story

I give them points for making a pretty successful career off of smarmy, mindless songs.

With this in mind, Dave Matthews Band would be more suitable as studio musicians or fill-ins for more talented artists.
