The Budos Band is exactly the type of band Dave Matthews is hoping to expose his fans to during his Caravan.

Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Only a couple hundred people - at the most - showed up to hear the 10-piece band, which was a shame because the crowd missed some really good music.

Playing on the Pacific Stage, the Staten Island, N.Y., instrumental group urged the small crowd to dance to the insrumental band's soulful mix of contemporary jazz, African beats courtesy of dual bongo players and funk. Many obliged.

A jam band with horns, the Budos Brothers thoroughly impressed, particularly bassist Daniel Foder, who played his instrument with a rock-star swagger and stood out despite the horns being the focus.

If you missed the Budos, do Dave - and yourself - a favor and download some of their music.
