Last Waltz Ensemble Atlanta Holiday Show 11/28


The Last Waltz Ensemble
The Last Waltz Ensemble will celebrate rock-n-roll history, The Band, and the music of Bob Dylan when they perform their Sixth Annual Thanksgiving Holiday Concert Celebration at Smith's Old Bar in Atlanta on November 28.

In the tradition of The Band's 1976 final performance, the group will be joined by musical guests and friends. Expect performances by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band horns of Kevin Harris and Efrem Townes, Charlie Starr from up and coming southern rock super group Blackberry Smoke, John Liebman of The Electromatics, David Fisch of Fish Mouth Fools fame, and Nelson Nolen.

Thanksgiving, 1976: The Band, together with Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, and others, gathered together in Winterland Ballroom to celebrate The Band's final concert. Martin Scorsese filmed the event, and that footage became The Last Waltz, one of the greatest musical documentaries of all time.

Progressively playing the music of The Band and Bob Dylan, The Last Waltz Ensemble executes both traditional and original arrangements in an improvisational jam band format. Their playlist includes renowned favorites such as "Like a Rolling Stone," "Don't Do It," and "The Shape I'm In," as well as tracks from other areas of the featured artists' careers. True to the spirit of The Band, this ensemble presents some of the most polished and timeless music in rock history, reinforcing their sound through vintage equipment, special guest performances, and ever-changing set lists.

Some past guests of The Last Waltz Ensemble have included Sean Costello, Brock Butler, Col. Bruce Hampton, Reverend Jeff Mosier, and Susan Tedeschi.
