On November 25th, 1976, one of rock and roll’s most influential groups, The Band, held their final concert. This event was documented by director Martin Scorsese and made into the film “The Last Waltz.” Considered one of the best concert films ever, The Last Waltz also featured performances by Dr. John, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan.
On July 7th, close to thirty local musicians will gather and recreate the amazing performances of The Last Waltz live on the stage at the Southgate House Revival in downtown Newport! Featuring many of Dayton’s most talented musicians, including an 8 piece horn section, and special guests from Cincinnati, this one-night-only event promises to be one of the most unique and talked about concerts of 2013. This show will also feature Billy Alletzhauser & Beth Harris of The Hiders performing a short opening set.
