The acclaimed tribute act 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 like 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 renowned 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!”
