Dave Matthews and his band go platinum with "Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King"

The Dave Matthews Band’s latest CD, “Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King” was just certified platinum.

The album debuted in June and it landed at the top of the record charts.

To celebrate the week, the band will perform on Conan O’Brien on 9/14, on the Ellen show on 9/16 — and the Oct. 3 season premier of “Austin City Limits” will feature the Dave Matthews Band.

Sept. 7 marked the birthday of the DMB’s late sax player Leroi Moore. The band wanted to honor the musician, so¬† Leroi Moore scholarship programs and charitable endowments have been set up.

The fund will supply scholarships and aid groups like Toys For Tots and Habitat for Humanity.
