      The Band was one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll. They were Dylan's band when he "went electric" in 1966. Eric Clapton claims that "Music From Big Pink" prompted him to quit Cream. They were the first rock and roll band on the cover of Time magazine. They were at Woodstock and Watkins Glen, on the Festival Express, and at the center of the Last Waltz. They're in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the U.S. and Canada.

      The THE BAND Band is the pre-eminent tribute to The Band. They capture the sounds of The Band perfectly. The arrangements are straight off the recordings. Their harmonies are spot on. In addition to the bass, drums, keyboards, and guitars, they break out the mandolin, accordion, fiddle, and horns, just like The Band did. And in the spirit of The Band's legendary live performances, they play with unfettered passion and conviction.

      As one fan put it, "If you were too young to see The Band play live, these guys can take care of that for you!"
