Their performance is composed of Weight Band original songs as well as fan favorites from The Band's catalog, including Up On Cripple Creek, The Weight and The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. After years of touring, The Weight Band has released a new album of original material, packaged for today's vibrant Americana base and capturing The Band's rich musical tradition. Released in February 2018, World Gone Mad is a Roots Rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound. The Weight Band originated in 2013 inside the famed Woodstock, New York barn of Levon Helm when Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante - both former members of The Band - performed Songs of The Band with Band founder, Garth Hudson, alongside Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs. Inspired to carry on the legacy of the unforgettable rock group, Weider, Ciarlante and Isaacs began performing fan favorites from The Band catalog to audiences across the country, inviting Brian Mitchell and Marty Grebb to complete their sound. The Weight Band later added Albert Rogers, Michael Bram and Matt Zeiner to cement their current lineup. With a heavy US tour schedule slated for 2018 and beyond, the concerts blend The Weight Band originals with songs from The Band's treasured catalog including Up On Cripple Creek, The Weight and Dixie - complementing The Band's timeless legacy while pushing forward with new original material off their first record World Gone Mad. Jim Weider (guitar, mandolin & vocals) is a former member of The Band. From 1985 to 2000, Jim replaced Robbie Robertson as their lead guitarist, writing songs and performing on three studio albums, Jericho, High on the Hog and Jubilation. He toured internationally with original Band members Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko for fifteen years and was featured with them on numerous albums, films, videos and in television appearances. Michael Bram (drums & vocals) is a soulful singer and multi-instrumentalist. Michael splits his time drumming for The Weight Band and Jason Mraz. He has been a staple in the New York music scene for almost two decades - other career highlights include working with Willie Nelson and recording tracks with Bob Margolin of The Last Waltz fame. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359025 The Clayton Opera House The Clayton Opera House
