the band band new hope free pressThe THE BAND Band will pay tribute to The Band and celebrate original Band member Rick Danko’s birthday on Dec. 27. Danko, whose birthday was Dec. 29, passed away in 1999 at age 56.

While iconic 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 the legendary repertoire. This group of veteran musicians showcases the breadth and depth of The Band’s distinctively original Americana music with classics such as 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.

As the premier tribute to The Band, The THE BAND Band celebrates the intricacy and genius of The Band’s harmonies, preserving the spirit of their live performances, often including the addition of a four piece horn section. Drawing their set list from The Band’s seminal period – from Big Pink to The Last Waltz – they bring theses songs to life again.

Rex Fowler of renowned folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step said, “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.”

The THE BAND Band takes the stage at 8 p.m.; doors open 7 p.m. at New Hope Winery, 6123 Lower York Road, in New Hope. Tickets are $25 and can be bought online or call 215-794-2331.
