The Weight Band
August 9 @ 7:30 pm
Featuring members of The Band, Levon Helm Band & Rick Danko Group. Simply stated by the Chicago Sun Times, “The Weight Band carries on where The Band left off”. The Weight Band 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. Inspired to carry on the legacy of the unforgettable rock group, the group 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. The last time these musicians came to town they filled the Opera House. Don’t wait to buy your tickets to this hot summer concert.Advance discounted tickets $28, available directly from the Opera House Box Office at 207-633-5159, beginning May 15. Regularly priced tickets $33, available online and on the day of the performance. Generously sponsored by The Knickerbocker Group.
