Jeff Coffin to finish out the tour with Dave Matthews Band
July 8th, 2008
According to Jeff Coffin's official website, he will be filling in for LeRoi Moore for the remainder of the Summer Tour.
Leroi Moore was seriously injured in an ATV accident and is currently reported to be in fair condition and is going to make a full recovery. In a recent article by "The Hook", DMB publicist Ambrosia Healy reports that Leroi remains in the hospital and will be posting updated information about LeRoi's condition on dmband.com, when there is news to report.
Jeff will be with Bela Fleck and The Flecktones for two shows on August 5th & 6th. DMB does have a show in Cincinnati on the 5th and there is currently no word if there will be someone to fill in for Jeff at that show or no one at all. This is currently the only conflict that Jeff has with the remainder of DMB's Summer Tour.
While LeRoi's presence on stage is clearly missed by both the band and the fans, Jeff has stepped up in Roi place. Both Stefan and Rashawn posted blogs about Leroi absence from the stage.
