The Band's not around anymore, but The Weight, featuring former touring members of The Band, Levon Helm Band and the Rick Danko Group are keeping the music alive. Check out that press shot above, they even kind of look like The Band.
Offering themselves as "the most authentic presentation of The Band that the world is ever going to get", I think that if you love their incredible songbook, you'll enjoy seeing The Weight at City Winery on Friday, June 10th.
