Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center: The Weight Band / Nov 23



Levon Helm’s parting wish was for the iconic music of THE BAND to live on. That wish was and continually is fulfilled through THE WEIGHT BAND, performing live at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 23rd at 8pm.

THE WEIGHT BAND originated in 2013 inside the famed Woodstock, New York barn of Levon Helm when Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante — both former members of The Band — performed “Songs of The Band” with Band founder, Garth Hudson, alongside Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs.

Inspired to carry on the legacy of the unforgettable rock group, Weider, Ciarlante and Isaacs began performing fan favorites from The Band catalog to audiences across the country, inviting Brian Mitchell to complete their sound. The band later added Albert Rogers, Michael Bram and Matt Zeiner to make up their current lineup.

Together, after four years of touring, THE WEIGHT BAND has recorded a new album of original material, capturing The Band’s musical tradition and packaged for today’s vibrant Americana base. Released in February 2018, World Gone Mad is an Americana/Roots Rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound.

All tickets priced at $49. Patrons can save on the show as well as the upcoming performance of BEST OF THE EAGLES on December 29th, by purchasing together online, over the phone or at the box office.
