Members of The Weight Band were either members of The Band or are directly and deeply connected to their legacy.  The group features Jim Weider from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band, Marty Grebb who wrote for The Band and worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, and Albert Rogers who shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson in The Jim Weider Band, along with the newest member, Michael Bram, who played with Jason Mraz.

Prepare for an unforgettable performance and enjoy timeless hits like "The Weight," "Up On Cripple Creek," "Ophelia," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Rag Mama Rag," and so many others.  Hear the most authentic presentation of The Band's music performed on stage, and see why the Chicago Sun Times proclaimed “The Weight carries on where The Band left off." Come and take a load off.
