The THE BAND Band (THE BAND Tribute Band)

Event Date: 
Friday, February 1, 2013 - 8:00pm

During its eight-year run from 1968 to 1976, Levon Helm, Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel and Garth Hudson, AKA, The Band stood apart from everything else happening in rock 'n' roll at the time. The legendary roots-rock band created a style of Americana that generated numerous classic rock standards and created a whole new wave of bands for decades since.

The THE BAND Band brings the music of The Band alive with authentic, true-to-form renditions of their extraordinary repertoire, including "The Weight", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Up On Cripple Creek", and many deep cuts from all their classic albums. Their goal is to preserve the authenticity of The Band’s sound, their arrangements, and most importantly, the spirit of their live shows. Their musical arrangements are the originals, and even the instrumentation and stage set-up are as The Band performed. The audience response has been tremendous.
