In November of 1976, the Band played a star studded show billed as the Last Waltz at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. Guest performers included Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Neil Young and many more. The concert was filmed by Martin Scorsese and became one of the definitive concert films in music history.

To celebrate the Last Waltz’s 40th anniversary, we’ll recreate the spirit of the original concert experience with an all star cast of artists and musicians from the Shoals and beyond including many who had worked with the Band and its legendary drummer and vocalist Levon Helm. Besides the concerts, various side events will shine a light on the legacy of the band and Levon Helm and his connection to the Muscle Shoals music scene. The show also includes a recreation of the dinner menu of the original Last Waltz.
