Craig Knapp - Lead Vocals

Back in 1996, I was taking a night class, Piano I, at Suffolk Community College. After class one night, me and a friend hung out in my old Cutlass, just talking, and listening to the radio. We were talking and singing to every song that came on. Ants Marching came on, and I was singing along. That was the first time that anybody has ever told me that I sound like Dave Matthews. Now, for the record, I don't think that I sound like Dave Matthews. I try my best to emulate and capture his vocal style and timbre, but do I sound like Dave? I don't think so. In any event, it was at that moment in 1996 that I thought it would be cool to sing in a DMB tribute.

Fast forward to the summer of 1998, I had just completed my student teaching for music education, and I went into a local music store. Brian Fort asked me, "Craig, how busy are you?" At the time, I was playing with two bands, and just beginning my career as a public school music educator. A few weeks later, I auditioned with the boys and became the final piece to the puzzle.

The last three years performing with Ants Marching have been incredible. I get the opportunity to celebrate the music of a band that I highly admire, and I have met great people and created lifelong friendships. I have the best of both worlds, I get to teach and enhance the minds of our world's youth through music on Monday-Friday by teaching in public school. I also have the privilege of performing the music of one of my favorite and most respected bands, the Dave Matthews Band, on the weekends.
