Featuring members of THE BAND, the LEVON HELM BAND & the RICK DANKO GROUP and performing songs of THE BAND, THE WEIGHT BAND returns to the legendary STONE PONY, where THE BAND actually played on Aug 26, 1994. The members of THE WEIGHT BAND, Jim Weider, Brian Mitchell, Marty Grebb, Albert Rogers and Michael Bram, were either actual members of THE BAND or are directly and deeply connected to their legacy, keeping the spirit and music alive that helped define an era. Also, THE WEIGHT BAND just released their first album of “Woodstock inspired” original music, World Gone Mad.

Prepare for an unforgettable performance and enjoy timeless hits like “The Weight,” “Up On Cripple Creek,” “Ophelia,” “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “Rag Mama Rag” and so many others. Hear the most authentic presentation of The Band’s music performed on stage, and see why the Chicago Sun Times proclaimed, “THE WEIGHT carries on where THE BAND left off.” Come and take a load off.

The group features Jim Weider from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band, Marty Grebb, who wrote for The Band and worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, and Albert Rogers, who shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson in The Jim Weider Band. Michael Bram, the newest member of THE WEIGHT, played with Jason Mraz.

Jim Weider (VOCALS / GUITAR) Thirty years ago, Jim replaced Robbie Robertson as lead guitarist, singer and songwriter for The Band. Featured on Jericho, Jubilation, and High On The Hog albums, Jim toured with the group right up until the end and appeared in numerous Band performance videos and documentary segments.

Brian Mitchell (VOCALS / PIANO / B3 / ACCORDION / HARMONICA) As a member of The Levon Helm Band, Brian played piano, organ and accordion as well as contributing to vocals. He now fills those same roles within THE WEIGHT. Highly regarded within the music industry as the consummate musician, Brian has performed with Bob Dylan, Al Green, BB King and countless others.

Marty Grebb (VOCALS / B3 / PIANO / ACCORDION / SAXOPHONE) A talented multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, Marty’s connection to The Band runs deep. He wrote for the Jericho and Jubilation albums and performed on Jubilation, as well as having worked on projects with Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson. Like the other members of THE WEIGHT, Marty has toured with many great artists, including Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Bonnie Raitt, and Etta James, just to name a few.

Albert Rogers (VOCALS / BASS) Albert plays bass and shares vocal duties as a member of THE WEIGHT. He’s shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson in The Jim Weider Band, and has also performed with Sid McGinnis, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmy Vivino, Albert Lee among many others.

Michael Bram (VOCALS / DRUMS) Soulful singer and multi-instrumentalist, Michael “Leroy” Bram has toured with Jason Mraz and recorded tracks with Bob Margolin of The Last Waltz fame. His connection to The Band comes by way of the extended community who played at Levon Helm Studios in the Chris O’Leary Band, an offshoot of players from Levon’s band, The Barnburners.
