Experience the songs that have reverberated across history for decades: The Weight, Tears of Rage, Chest Fever, I Shall Be Released, Up on Cripple Creek, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and more.
Five incredible musicians who played with Levon Helm’s The Band, have formed The Weight to keep the music, story-telling and dancing alive. The Weight features The Band’s guitarist Jim Weider and drummer Randy Ciarlante, plus Brian Mitchell and Byron Isaacs — along with Marty Grebb who worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel.
Replicating the music of The Band is a tall order and an art. But this is the real deal.
