Live Concerts

The The Band Band (Rock Pop Tribute)

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 8:00pm
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. The members of 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 their self-titled album, "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 their peers and critics alike, they changed the course of American music and influenced a generation of fans and musicians. Ticket Prices: $18 ($17 Stu/Sen, $15 members, $9 Child U12)
