In 2004, the Dave Matthews Band caused a bout of controversy when it came to UF to perform and persuade Gainesville residents to vote against President George W. Bush, according to Alligator archives.
The band performed as a part of the Vote for Change tour organized by MoveOn.org, a liberal political action committee that raised funds to support Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., during his presidential campaign.
