Replicating the music of The Band is a tall order, but interpreting the music of The Band is an art. Songs that have reverberated across history for decades continue to speak to millions of us. And THE WEIGHT, 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.
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.
