The Weight Band at Shalin Liu Performance Center
October 5, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
The Weight Band is a continuation of the beloved music of The Band and features former members of The Band. Their performances are composed of Weight Band original songs as well as fan favorites from The Band’s catalog, including classics like “Up On Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”.
The Weight originated in 2013 inside the famed Woodstock, New York barn of Levon Helm when Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante — both former members of The Band — performed “Songs of The Band” with Band founder, Garth Hudson, alongside Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs. Inspired to carry on the legacy of the unforgettable rock group, Weider, Ciarlante and Isaacs began performing fan favorites from The Band catalog to audiences across the country, inviting Marty Grebb and Brian Mitchell to complete their sound. The Weight Band later added Albert Rogers and Michael Bram to make up their current lineup with Weider, Mitchell and Grebb.
Ticket prices are $59, $55, $45 and may be purchased online at www.rockportmusic.org.
