Sold Out – Such a Night: Recreating The Band’s Last Waltz
SUCH A NIGHT: A who’s who of Indianapolis musicians present the music from The Band’s final concert in support of GiGi’s Playhouse Indianapolis.
After the death of The Band’s drummer, Levon Helm, in April of 2012, a small group of Indianapolis musicians decided to get together and play the songs of The Band to honor Mr. Helm’s legacy. As word of their plans began to spread amongst the local music community, the group grew larger and it was decided to recreate The Band’s legendary final show, known as The Last Waltz. That concert, also a brilliant film and soundtrack directed by Martin Scorsese, features The Band as well as several of the biggest musicians of the mid-1970’s.
For Such a Night, the backing “Band,” is comprised of Tad Armstrong, David England, Wade Parish, Bill Mallers, and Johnny Socko alums, Matt Wilson, Josh Silbert, Charlie Krone, and Eric Evans. Throughout the show, guests include Gordon Bonham as Bob Dylan, Brian Deer as Eric Clapton, Stasia Demos as Emmylou Harris, Gary Wasson as Neil Young, Mina Keohane as Joni Mitchell, The Fabulous Jones Sisters as The Staples Singers, Jon Martin as Ronnie Hawkins, Matt Mays as Van Morrison, Dean Metcalf as Michael McClure, Ken Honeywell as Lawrence Ferlinghetti and former Socko vocalist, Mike Wiltrout as Neil Diamond and Paul Butterfield.
The next performance of Such a Night will take place at The Hi-Fi in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis on January 12, 2018.
All profits from the event go to support GiGi’s Playhouse Indianapolis, a Down syndrome achievement center and National 501c3 dedicated to providing life-changing FREE results-driven programs for children, families and the community.
