This year marks the 42nd Anniversary of the Historic farewell concert of The Band on November 25, 1976 at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, CA. The concert saw the Band joined by an unparalleled lineup of superstars including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton, to name a few. The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary of the same name, released in 1978 which is heralded as one of the greatest concert films ever produced by humankind.
42 years to later, The Blue Note is excited to again present a LIVE recreation of this legendary night in rock history with no detail spared. Starring Sean Canan’s Voodoo Players as “The Band,” the show will include The Funky Butt Horns and feature hand picked guest musicians performing the roles of each legend who joined The Band on stage that night as chronicled by Scorsese in the documentary film. Tickets to this snapshot in music history are $10 in advance and $12 day of show.
“This film should be played loud,” they said…and so we shall, LOUD AND LIVE.
