Dave Matthews Band's Tim Reynolds at Roxy's Pub; Wine Dive Offers Half-Priced Deal

Dave Matthews fever is set to hit Palm Beach County this weekend, and Roxy's Pub is planning on being the hottest place in town for fans of the band.

The Clematis Street pub will host two Dave Matthews parties starring guitarist Tim Reynolds and TR3 performing two live shows, on Thursday, July 18, and Friday, July 19.

Kat McGinley, manager at Roxy's, told Clean Plate Charlie that this is the fifth time Reynolds will play the pub. "Tim loves West Palm Beach, so this is an annual thing for him. He invites all his friends and even gives a shoutout during the concert."

The two shows round out an entire DMB experience, with the Thursday evening show acting as a pre-concert happening, and the Friday show a post-concert experience. The Dave Matthews Band is scheduled to play the Cruzan Amphitheatre on July 19 and July 20.

Reynolds' Thursday show will start around 10 p.m., with the Friday show starting around the same time. Both shows at Roxy's are full-concert length (about two hours). On Friday, the Rob Arenth Experience opens for Reynolds (giving him time to get to the pub), with the guitarist starting his set around 12:30 a.m.

And now for the really big question: Will Dave Matthews show up at Roxy's to support his guitarist? Well, there's no guarantee, but according to McGinley, the rocker has mentioned it onstage more than once, prompting her to believe he's been in the crowd before -- and might show up again. "I actually think he may be in disguise," she confided.

The pub holds around 500 people, so tickets usually sell out for these shows. They're $21 each in advance; $25 at the door (if available) and can be purchased at tickets.roxyspub.com. The shows are open to guests 21 and over only.

In addition to the concert and some good grub, Roxy's' sister restaurant, The Wine Dive, is hosting a special on Dave Matthews' own Dreaming Tree wines, where bottles are half-priced. Also, purchase your tickets in advance and get a free glass of wine at Wine Dive before the Roxy's show, while supplies last.

And if you're coming from the amphitheater to Roxy's, be sure to stop for any stranded bicyclists because you never know if they turn out to be Dave Matthews!
