The THE BAND Band  -  "Music From Big Pink" 50th Anniversary Celebration

The THE BAND Band will be back at Sportsmen’s to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Band’s iconic debut album "Music From Big Pink" featuring some of their best known songs, including "The Weight," "Chest Fever," and "I Shall Be Released."  The album, named for the house in West Saugerties NY where many of the songs were written, established The Band as one of the preeminent bands of their generation and forged a new sound in rock and roll that would come to be known as Americana.  Their musical partnership with Bob Dylan is on full display on the album, which includes three Dylan-penned songs and his painting featured on the cover. The THE BAND Band will perform the songs from the album as well as other classics such as "Up On Cripple Creek," "Ophelia," and "It Makes No Difference."


Tribute to THE BAND  featuring The THE BAND Band

The acclaimed group The THE BAND Band is without a doubt the most musically satisfying tribute to The Band on the scene today.  While The Band may be long gone from the stage, The THE BAND Band is keeping their sound and spirit alive and well with authentic, true-to-form renditions of their legendary repertoire. This group of veteran musicians showcases the astounding breadth and depth of The Band's distinctively original Americana music with classics such as Up on Cripple Creek, The Weight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, as well as deeper cuts from The Band’s vast catalog.

This is not your ordinary tribute band. The THE BAND Band brings the songs to life again with the energy and excitement of The Band’s legendary concerts, earning the praise of critics and audiences alike.  George Walsh of WCWP Radio says, "The THE BAND Band really nails it. Their shows recapture the incredible vibe that was unique to The Band." And Rex Fowler of famed folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step states, "Sadly we'll never see or hear The Band perform live again, but if you want a close second and want to be transformed by the magic and spirit of The Band’s music...The THE BAND Band...delivers BIG TIME".

The THE BAND Band has shared the stage with notables Richie Havens, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Aztec Two-Step, Marshall Crenshaw and more. The individual band members have performed or toured with original Band members Rick Danko and Levon Helm, as well as Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Berry, John Hall, Patti Smith, Keith Richards, Steve Forbert, Paul Butterfield, Mike Bloomfield, Roy Rogers, Roger McGuinn, Robbie Dupree, Max Weinberg, Clarence Clemons, Willie Nile, Maria Muldaur, Genya Ravan, Jimmy Vivino, The Shirelles, and many others.
