"I have the Central Park Concert on my iPod but I wanted the DVD for my two year old. I can only hear "Wheels on the Bus" so many times. My husband and I are musicians and our son loves playing instruments. He bangs on the drum pads that go with our Wii (they're nice and quiet!). We have "DMB The Videos 1994-2001" but some of the videos are too creepy for a toddler. I chose this DVD because it only shows the band playing and I just skip over scary sounding songs (Don't Drink the Water). My toddler loves to watch Carter Beauford and will try to imitate him. Or he'll pull out his guitar and try to be Dave. This is definitely not a typical toddler purchase, but it's important to us that he gets exposure to GOOD music."
"you just cannot get enough of this amazing performance. This dvd shows how incredibly talented the entire band is, particularly in that they are able to extend almost every song into a jam session that is so amazing no one could possibly find it boring. "
"If you appreciate musicianship and real talent, you will not find a better band anywhere."
"My husband and I recently got into DMB and we absolutely love them. We first really saw them on Storytellers. Our 1 year old son just can't take his eyes off them. He dances and sings to them. Well that just melted our hearts."
"This concert was not only a milestone for DMB but also for this generation of alternative rock. Very few get the honor of playing in the middle of a baseball diamond in the United States' largest and most famous park. Weather you like DMB or not, you will love this concert and very swiftly place it on your proudest shelf of your concert DVD collection."
"This was one of the finest, most explosive, upbeat, and energizing concerts of recent music history, and it is really all captured by this video! I remember growing up, going through school, experimenting with DMB, and there was a backlash to it because of how quickly popular the band and their music became... but it is clear to me now, and this concert should silence all the critics, that they are truly a musical phenomenon that is unparalelled... No musical group can create the sound that they have imagined and built, for it's uniqueness, their musicianship, and their love for the music... they are legends."
"Let me just start off by saying the Dave Matthews Band is my number one all time favorite band of all time and always will be for the rest of my life. This concert was the best dmb cconcert i have ever seen other than the concert i went to at darien lake in 2005 that was and still is and awlays will be my number one favorite concert that i seen or been to of all time and always will be for the rest of my life!!!!!!!"
ESSENTIAL DMB...in fact, anyone who appreciates their fine musicianship should see and hear this DVD. The Central Park DVD won the Jammy Award for DVD of the year. Be sure to check out Dave's crazy scatting on the second disk; right after Jimi Thing"
"I'm a 40 year old guy who's not afraid of getting older, mostly because I've rocked just as hard as anyone else along the way.
I popped the DMB central park concert into my laptop on a plane last night and almost jumped out of my seat screaming, dancing and smashing things cause it was so f-ing good! I'm glad I used some self control because I'm sure I would have been arrested."
"OMG!!! THIS DVD IS THE BOMB!!! I HAVE BEEN A DMB FAN FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS NOW, AND THIS IS THE BEST WORK I HAVE SEEN FROM THEM. THIS IS JUST AN AMZING EXPERIENCE. THIS PROBABLY WAS A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO SAW IT LIVE, BUT UH....EVEN IF YOU GET THIS DVD, IT IS STILL LIFE-CHANGING IT IS THE MOST AMAZING DISPLAY OF MUSICAL TALENT EVER!!"
