“Amazing! Magical! The whole evening was absolutely electric!!”
The Last Waltz, the legendary 1976 farewell concert by The Band, featured more than a dozen guest artists including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton and Dr. John, and showcased The Band’s classic hits like "The Weight," "Up On Cripple Creek," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Ophelia," and "It Makes No Difference," to name a few. The THE BAND Band’s spectacular Last Waltz Celebration with the TTBB Horns & Special Guests revisits that 1976 Thanksgiving evening that has become embedded in the heart of the rock and roll lexicon. Re-creating the stage of The Last Waltz, The THE BAND Band acts as backing band for the myriad of talented guest artists representing some of the special guest performances from that night: Eric Clapton’s “Further On Up the Road,” Ronnie Hawkins’ “Who Do You Love,” Van Morrison’s “Caravan,” and many more.
As the only nationally touring group dedicated exclusively to the accurate representation of The Band's music, The THE BAND Band brings the music to life with authentic, true-to-form renditions the extraordinary repertoire. From the hit songs and deep cuts from their classic albums, to the historic collaborations with Bob Dylan, Gary Solomon (bass, vocals), Jack Kraft (keyboards, accordion, mandolin, vocals), Josh Radin (guitar, vocals), Loren Korevec (piano, vocals), and Matt Crawford (drums, vocals) deliver with the passion and commitment for which The Band was renowned. If you like the music of The Band, you’ll love The THE BAND Band!
