Marmalade (band)

Marmalade were a Scottish pop group, highly successful during the early 1970s. Their first hit record was a cover of the Beatles' "Ob-la-di", predictably performed in orange suits, which went to #1 in the UK charts. The harmony-based band went on to produce a string of early 1970s hits including "Reflections of My Life" and "Rainbow", using the lead vocals of Dean Ford and the higher harmonies of bass player Graham Knight. They toured extensively and even gave rise to a cocktail - the Marmaladdie. The band was managed by Peter Walsh, a 60s and 70s pop entrepreneur whose portfolio also included artists like the Bay City Rollers, Billy Ocean, the Troggs and Blue Mink.

When pianist Junior Campbell left the band to become a "one hit wonder", Marmalade began a series of line-up changes including the loss of drummer Alan Whitehead and suffered poor publicity from the UK's News of the World. An attempt to fit into the UK's move to "progressive" music met with limited success.

The group still survives today, primarily because of the leadership of Graham Knight.

The group still survives today, primarily because of the leadership of Graham Knight. Matthews and his wife, Ashley Harper, have twin daughters, Stella and Grace, and split their time between Seattle, Washington and Charlottesville. An attempt to fit into the UK's move to "progressive" music met with limited success. Matthews released a solo album in late 2003, Some Devil, which went platinum; its single, "Gravedigger," won a Grammy Award in 2004. When pianist Junior Campbell left the band to become a "one hit wonder", Marmalade began a series of line-up changes including the loss of drummer Alan Whitehead and suffered poor publicity from the UK's News of the World. The band's first performance was on May 11th 1991, at a private rooftop party, held by Lydia Condor at the South Street Warehouse in downtown Charlottesville. The band was managed by Peter Walsh, a 60s and 70s pop entrepreneur whose portfolio also included artists like the Bay City Rollers, Billy Ocean, the Troggs and Blue Mink. Matthews formed The Dave Matthews Band in early 1991 with Boyd Tinsley, Leroi Moore, Carter Beauford and Stefan Lessard while he was working as a bartender at Miller's in Charlottesville.

They toured extensively and even gave rise to a cocktail - the Marmaladdie. After writing his first few songs, including "The Song that Jane Likes" and "Recently", Matthews who had originally envisioned someone else singing his songs, began to consider starting his own band. The harmony-based band went on to produce a string of early 1970s hits including "Reflections of My Life" and "Rainbow", using the lead vocals of Dean Ford and the higher harmonies of bass player Graham Knight. It was in 1990 that he hatched the idea to form his own band. Their first hit record was a cover of the Beatles' "Ob-la-di", predictably performed in orange suits, which went to #1 in the UK charts. His first professional musical performance was at a modern dance performance by the Miki Liszt Dance Company, singing "Sensitive Feelings," composed by John D'earth and Dawn Thompson. Marmalade were a Scottish pop group, highly successful during the early 1970s. Though he also logged time back in South Africa and in Amsterdam, it was in Charlottesville where Matthews—who took piano lessons as a child before picking up the guitar at age nine—became part of the local music community.

The key move for Dave Matthews was when he relocated in 1986 to Charlottesville, Virginia, where his parents had lived before he was born. The family moved back to South Africa in 1980, where Matthews went to a few different schools. Then, in the early 1970s, he moved to Cambridge, England, before returning to New York—where his father died in 1977. At the age of two, Matthews and his family immigrated to Westchester County, New York, where his father, a physicist, went to work for IBM.

Dave Matthews (born January 9, 1967 in Johannesburg, South Africa) is the vocalist and guitarist from Dave Matthews Band.
