performed a The Band cover with opening act The Wood Brothers and later dusted off their

The Wood Brothers emerged in the middle of the first set for a take on "The Weight" by The
Band. This marked two guest spots on two The Band covers in two nights following Friday
night's performance of "Up On Cripple Creek" with Keller Williams.
moe. clearly has Levon Helm and The Band on their minds as they prepare to record a
new album at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY.

time since May 13, 1995 in Charlotte, NC to end the second set. Now THAT'S a bust out.
