About Us

Rhyme & Reason is a high energy band delivering the passion of a DMB show to the local scene. Their shows range from wild jams to tight knit acoustic sing-alongs that fans and non dmb fans have grown to love. The love for DMB is what makes this band stand apart from just your average tribute act.  You wont see band members dressing up or acting like DMB members, at a Rhyme & Reason show you will see and feel the love for the music! The energy you feel while dancing to your favorite song will blow you away.

Rob Messina (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar)
Bob Elliott (Drums, Percussion, Backing Vocals)

Rhyme & Reason also serves as an acoustic tribute to Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds. Both Rob Messina and Jimmy Farkas are seasoned musicians with many years of live experience.
On any given night you can expect to hear all the greatest hits of dmb as well as many other b-sides and rarities. Shows range from 2-3 hours but there have been shows that reached the 4 hour mark. A two piece acoustic band that fits in any small venue but also offers the powerful performance fit for the bigger stages.
