RICHMOND, Va. -- Nearly 30 years after Dave Matthews Band formed in Virginia, the musicians -- who came together in Charlottesville and once gigged weekly at the old Flood Zone club in Richmond's Shockoe Bottom -- have been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Pat Benatar, who also performed in Richmond early in her career, was also nominated.
Other nominees include:
The Doobie Brothers
Nine Inch Nails
The Notorious B.I.G.
Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
Voting is taking place online and the inductees will be announced in January.
