The Band

The Rambles at Levon’s Barn continue and everyone in attendance on Saturday night was enthralled by the musical creativity, the intimacy of the venue and the homey comfort of seeing a show that feels like you’re in your friend’s living room. Levon Helm Studios are in the Mid-Hudson Valley in Woodstock, NY. The audience is a mix of weekend visitors and locals. The atmosphere is friendly & relaxed.

The final show of 'The Last Waltz Tour' was held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 and featured special guest Robbie Robertson sans Turkey dinner for all. The 2019 tour honored The Band's iconic 1976 Thanksgiving Day farewell concert at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. Robertson, the lead guitarist for The Band, was also the organizer of the original concert.

Legendary songwriter and musician Robbie Robertson’s new holiday song “Happy Holidays” is an irreverent take on the holiday tune tradition, juxtaposing tongue-in-cheek lyrics about the duality of the yuletide season with some beautiful guitar melodies.

“We love Christmas and the holidays, it brings good cheer, and also stress and depression, so I wanted to do a song that celebrates both sides and have a little fun,” says Robertson.

Celebrate The Band's 1971 historic concert, “Rock of Ages” with a special performance by The Weight Band with The Dap King Horns. Along with special guest Willie Nile, The Weight are five musical brothers based in Woodstock, NY featuring Jim Weider of The Band, and members of the Levon Helm Band. They have been performing their album World Gone Mad and The Band's treasured repertoire to fans around the country.

Let’s rewind to November 25, 1976, on Thanksgiving Eve. The iconic group, The Band, were joined by Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Dr. John, to name a few. This was going to be the official “Farewell Show” in San Francisco (Winterland Ballroom) for the Canadian/American quintet: Helm/Danko/Robertson/Hudson/Manuel.

Robbie Robertson, Sebastian Robertson, and Keith Wortman of Blackbird Presents are thrilled to announce the return of the highly acclaimed The Last Waltz Tour. This epic tour captures the excitement of The Band’s historic 1976 Thanksgiving concert at the famed Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco hailed as one of the greatest rock concerts of all time.
