The Weight Band

Featuring members of The Band, Levon Helm Band, & Rick Danko Group performing the songs of THE BAND — also with Jeffrey Halford & The Healers

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 (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Ciarlante and Isaacs began performing fan favorites from The Band catalog to audiences across the country, inviting Marty Grebb (keyboards, organ, horns, vocals) and Brian Mitchell (keyboards, organ, accordion, vocals) to complete their sound.

The Weight Band later added Albert Rogers (bass, vocals) and Michael Bram (drums, vocals) to make up their current lineup with Weider, Mitchell and Grebb. 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.

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.

 

Jeffrey Halford & The Healers
San Francisco singer/songwriter/guitarist Jeffrey Whitmore Halford was surrounded in his youth by the albums of Ray Charles, Dave Brubeck, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, Elvis, and Buffalo Springfield, Halford soaked up the best of American music.

After high school he watched a legendary street band in San Francisco—Jimmy Ventilator and Harry Spider—playing Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Robert Johnson, and the Ventures. Halford convinced them that he should join the band. For more than a year, he cut his guitar chops on the street, playing to crowds in Chinatown and Union Square until the police closed them down.

Based in San Francisco over the last 15 years, he’s been touring the country with his band, the Healers. They’ve played shows with many acclaimed artists and songwriters. His original roots rock ‘n roll songs etch a uniquely American, and specifically California, landscape.
