Music aficionados would undoubtedly agree; if you had to name three groups that were most influential in shaping the modern era of American Rock ‘N Roll, it would be, in no particular order, The Grateful Dead, The Band and The Allman Brothers. Replicating the music of The Band is a tall order, but interpreting the music of The Band is an art. The Weight Band (feat. former members of The Band, Levon Helm Band, Rick Danko Group) carries on where The Band left off. Mark your calendars now.
All of the members of The Weight Band were either actual members in The Band, or are directly and deeply connected to the legacy of The Band and The Weight Band, featuring Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band, Marty Grebb, who wrote and recorded with The Band and worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, and Albert Rogers who played with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson, remains a vehicle through which we can continue to share those stories and dance to those back beats.
Today The Band’s music continues to mark time in the lives of millions of baby boomers around the world and is now being rediscovered by today’s youth. Prepare for an unforgettable performance and enjoy timeless hits with songs like “The Weight”, “Up On Cripple Creek”, “Rag Mama Rag”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and so many others. This is the most authentic presentation of The Band that the world is ever going to get. Come and take a load off.
