A Tribute to The Band: The Last Waltz
Saturday, November 2, 2013 at The Hamilton (Washington, D.C.)
The Last Waltz Tribute returned to The Hamilton after 2012's sold-out extravaganza. The Band’s 1976 historic farewell concert was honored in grand autumnal style, as more than 30 performers joined together to perform iconic songs by The Band, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, & Ronnie Hawkins.
Big Joe Maher, Julia Nixon Jon Carroll, Tom Principato, Mark Wenner, Pete Ragusa, Mike Clem, Ruthie Logsdon, Kirk Philips, Jay Jenc, Forty Dollar Fine, Bill Baker, and many more!
The Band’s enormous influence on popular music has not slowed in the nearly 40 years since the Last Waltz. Numerous popular acts from Wilco and My Morning Jacket to Grace Potter and Mumford & Sons have cited The Band as major influences.
The Last Waltz was The Band's farewell concert, held at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving night. In the spirit of the original, The Hamilton served the unforgettable Turkey Parfait Dinner in a Jar.
