     "Dreamgirl" was filmed over two days earlier this summer by Dave Meyers,
 who besides directing some of DMB's best-known clips has helmed music videos
 for artists such as Outkast, Kanye West, Jay Z and Jennifer Lopez.  Mr. Meyers
 was nominated for 6 MTV video music awards this year alone for his work on
 Missy Elliot's "Lose Control."
     The video was shot in various locations around Brooklyn and Harlem in New
 York City.  A highly conceptual episodic clip, the video features Ms. Roberts
 as the dream girl with the members of Dave Matthews Band inhabiting her
 dreams.  This is Ms. Roberts' first filmed role since the birth of her twins
 last year.
     "Dreamgirl" is not the only place that DMB can be seen on television.  The
 band has also joined with the NFL ON CBS to star in a series of promotional
 spots featuring the album's title track, "Stand Up."  The spots are scheduled
 to debut this weekend during CBS Sports regular programming.
