the last waltz celebration of the band

An all-star Canadian cast of award-winning blues and roots musicians, under the direction of Juno award winning producer and musical director, Lance Anderson, is booking dates 2016 for the 40th Anniversary of THE BAND’s last concert in 1976. This crowd pleasing show, which has thrilled audiences at the CNE Bandshell (Toronto), Norfolk County Fair (Simcoe), the Shenkman Theatre (Ottawa), Peterborough, Orillia, Cobourg, Collingwood, Peter’s Players in Gravenhurst, and at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, will make any event an extravaganza! They have headlined the Southside Shuffle, Wasaga Beach Blues Festival, Orillia Spring and Kitchener Blues Festivals.

This is an all-star line-up, featuring Juno and Maple Blues Lifetime Achievement award winner Chuck Jackson (lead singer of the Downchild Blues Band), Jerome Levon Avis (Levon Helm’s godson) the always entertaining Johnny Max, and other special guest singers. The performance will recreate the atmosphere of The Band’s final concert, which was captured in Martin Scorcese’s award-winning concert film, The Last Waltz.
