The Weight, featuring members of The Band, the Levon Helm Band, and the Rick Danko Group, will be performing songs of The Band live at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Five musical brothers, all with a compelling connection to The Band’s heritage, locked at the hip and passionate in the mission of performing songs of the Band, live in concert.
Replicating the music of The Band is a tall order. But interpreting the music of The Band is an art. 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. A passing wish of Levon Helm was for the music and spirit of The Band to live on, and The Weight does just that, bringing a live performance to fans of The Band. This is the most authentic presentation of The Band that the world is ever going to get.
Come and take a load off and prepare for an unforgettable performance! Fans will hear some of the best known hits by The Band…..”Up on Cripple Creek”, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”, “Life is a Carnival” and many more.
