The THE BAND Band Comes to City Winery DC this Weekend

To borrow some lyrics from The Band's "Up On Cripple Creek"

When I get off of this mountain
You know where I want to go
Straight down [to City Winery and see The THE BAND Band]


Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me


City Winery DC has played host to an incredible assortment of artists since they opened earlier this spring.  This weekend, the venue will open its doors for an evening that will transport you straight back to the 70s. 

While the iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group, The Band, may be long gone, their sound and spirit is kept alive and well with The THE BAND Band's authentic, true-to-form renditions of the legendary repertoire. 

The THE BAND Band has shared the stage with legendary acts such as Richie Havens, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Aztec Two-Step, and Marshall Crenshaw. ​​​​

Come jam at City Winery DC this coming Saturday, June 2, and witness this band bring a fresh breathe of air into classic songs such as "Up on Cripple Creek", "The Weight", and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." 

See what others have said about The THE BAND Band.

The THE BAND Band really nails it. Their shows recapture the incredible vibe that was unique to The Band.

– George Walsh, radio host, WCWP Radio NY's 'Knockin' on Dylan's Door'

Sadly we’ll never see or hear The Band perform live again, but if you want a close second and want to be transformed by the magic and spirit of their music, The THE BAND Band delivers BIG TIME!

– Rex Fowler, folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step.
