It has been more than forty years since this legendary concert by The Band. If you missed it in 1976 then this is as close as you’ll get to experiencing not only the music, but the vibe, man.

An all-star Canadian cast of award-winning blues and roots musicians will perform The Last Waltz: A Musical Celebration of The Band at Hugh’s Room Live.

Under the direction of Juno award winning producer and musical director, Lance Anderson, the November appearances will be the eighth year for this crowd pleasing show which has sold out shows in Ottawa, Peterborough, Orillia, Collingwood, Port Hope, Stratford and at Hugh’s Room in Toronto. And headlined the CNE Bandshell, Southside Shuffle, Wasaga Beach Blues Festival and Kitchener Blues Festivals.

The performance will recreate the atmosphere of The Band’s final concert, which was captured in Martin Scorsese's award-winning concert film, The Last Waltz.

On the American Thanksgiving of 1976 at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom, The Band performed what they called their “Last Waltz,” and invited many of their friends to join in the celebration. These friends included Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Van Morrison, Neil Young and others who performed with The Band on this special night.

In this homage to The Last Waltz, Anderson’s special guests will perform the songs played and sung by these artists at the memorable 1976 concert. These shows have become an annual November tradition in Ontario.

Anderson’s production of The Last Waltz has experienced rave reviews at the many festivals where it has appeared over the past few years and has consistently been referred to as the “best of the festival.”

“It wasn’t just the musicianship, which was second to none; it was the energy – these musicians have brought forth a live music gem that is worthy of any stage I know of and probably more that I don’t,” said P. Rellinger of the Kawartha News after seeing Anderson’s show in Peterborough.
