The Band lives! A tribute, exact 40 years after ‘The Last Waltz’

Exactly 40 years after swan song ‘The Last Waltz’ – on 25 November 1976 in The Winterland Ballroom, San Francisco – a Belgian delegation of top musicians – entirely appropriated named Winterland ’76 – comes up with a tribute to The Band. Bob Dylan’s iconic Canadian backing band turned out the inimitable debut ‘Music From Big Pink’ in ’68 and forever changed the face of the country, americana, blues- & roots-rock and soul scene with worldly songs like ‘Tears Of Rage’, ‘Chest Fever’, ‘The Weight’ and ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ (from successor ‘The Band’ from ’69). The legendary band encompassing Levon Helm (drums, vocals), Robbie Robertson (guitar, vocals), Rick Danko (bass, vocals), Garth Hudson (keys) and Richard Manuel (piano, vocals) was a source of inspiration to the world’s greats, folks like Grateful Dead, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Costello, Pink Floyd and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

We kennen natuurlijk de dubbele CD én de legendarische film met elke performance van achter naar voor. Er hing dus wat elektriciteit in de lucht wanneer het podium met het hele instrumentarium wachtte op The Band. Die band catapulteerde ons onmiddellijk en onverschrokken naar de Last Waltz maar dan anno 2016. Wat een power, wat een fun, wat een harmonie. Alles wat The Band eigenlijk uitstraalde zat er spontaan in. Winterland 76 en hun gasten bezorgden mij een onvergetelijke avond, met de ene verrassing na de andere, alles aaneengeregen tot een eindeloze spanningsboog. De CD op mijn 400W speakers blijkt nu een flauw afkooksel te zijn van wat een live concert betekent: zien, horen en voelen, tot op je botten en elke vezel van je lijf. Dankjewel Winterland 76 en gasten, ik kom terug.
