Big Pink – 9th Annual Tribute to The Last Waltz at the Cabooze

PINME“The way to do it is to put as much life into the song as I can. You can either get it to breathe or you can’t”.-Levon Helm

This is the 9th annual tribute concert to “The Last Waltz “at the Cabooze and the third year I have photographed the show. The Last Waltz was a concert by the rock group The Band, held on American Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as The Band’s “farewell concert appearance”. Martin Scorsese filmed the show and made a documentary about the band. It is considered one of the greatest concert films ever made.

The opening act for the show this year was the Belfast Cowboys.

The Band included members Dave Russ, Jon Herchert, Pete Sands, Rob Hilstrom, and Chad Whittaker.

This year’s guests included Greg Huff  as Ronnie Hawkins, Jared Rush as Dr John, Reed Grimm as Neil Diamond, Boyd Blomberg  as  Neil Young,  Jimi Primetime  as Muddy Waters. Pat Hayes as Paul Butterfield, Chris Castino as Eric Clapton, Tristana Ward as Joni Mitchell,  Jillian Rae  as Emmylou Harris and Terry Walsh as Van Morrison.

The horn section included Jim Hann, Dave Foley and Dan Frankowski.

This show is a crowd favorite, and this year was no exception.  Everyone was dancing and singing along to all the songs.
