The charitable arm of the Dave Matthews Band, Bama Works, has donated $100,000 to the West, Texas Disaster Relief Fund.

Since 1999, the Charlottesville, Va.-based fund has made more than 800 donations totaling $15 million to both national and international causes.

The Dave Matthews Band, who performs Saturday in Dallas, isn't the only musician to make a contribution to the devastated town.  On Tuesday, it was announced that Texan Willie Nelson donated $121,000 to recovery efforts -- $81,000 directly to the West Volunteer Fire Department and another $40,000 to his hometown of Abbott, which had a truck destroyed in the blast.
