The THE BAND Band is the most musically satisfying tribute to The Band on the scene today, bringing the music of The Band alive with authentic, true-to-form renditions of their extraordinary repertoire. From hit songs such as "The Weight," "Up On Cripple Creek," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," to deep cuts from their classic albums (Music From Big Pink, The Band, Stage Fright), to their historic collaborations with Bob Dylan, The THE BAND Band delivers with the passion and commitment for which The Band was renowned. Experience the power and excitement of The Band’s legendary concerts, as famously documented in the Martin Scorsese film, The Last Waltz.
The Band - Levon Helm, Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson - were first known for backing up rockabilly star Ronnie Hawkins (as The Hawks) in the early 1960’s, then as Bob Dylan's backup band for his famous 1966 world tour.
In 1968, known simply as The Band, they released their debut album, Music From Big Pink, which was followed by the self-titled The Band (“the brown album”), Stage Fright, Cahoots, and several others. Their legendary live performances are well documented on albums (Rock of Ages, Before The Flood) and in movies (The Last Waltz, Festival Express). Acclaimed by peers and critics alike, they changed the course of American music and influenced a generation of fans and musicians.
