There’s a moment in “The Last Waltz,” the amazing documentary about the final concert by THE BAND, when Martin Scorsese asks Levon Helm about the musical landscape in his home state of Arkansas. Levon says “bluegrass and country music…if it comes down into that area and if it mixes there with the rhythm and if it dances, then you've got a combination of all that music.” Scorsese asks what that’s called. And Levon simply says “Rock and Roll.”
Come join us as we play Rock and Roll on July 3rd at FitzGerald's American Music Festival, as The Band. For some of us, this is as good as music gets. Deep, deceptively simple grooves, soulful harmony vocals, layered keyboard excellence, great lead guitar, and much more. We’ll draw heavily from the self-titled 2nd album, hit the debut “Music From Big Pink,” and give you a few versions from the Waltz itself. As always, the Fest gives us the chance to pull up some other performers that we don't usually get a chance to have, and this year will be no exception - Robbie Fulks will be joining us, and there may be a few other surprises too! July3 is the final day off the fest, and there are some truly great acts joining us on that day, so come early, and stay late!
Certain bands stand, even decades later, as emblems of the best music can aspire to. Come enjoy The Band with us.
