THE WEIGHT (feat. former members of The Band and Levon Helm Band), performing the music of The Band

THE WEIGHT: Songs of THE BAND feat. members of The Band, Levon Helm Band & Rick Danko Group. The Weight performs the music of The Band as no others can. This is the real deal!

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, a five-piece ensemble 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. This is the most authentic presentation of The Band that the world is ever gonna get. Come and take a load off, and prepare for an unforgettable performance.
