The Last Waltz was a concert by the Canadian-American rock group The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was The Band's "farewell concert appearance" and featured more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton. The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary hailed as one of the greatest concert films ever made.
We invite you to join us 39 years later on Thanksgiving week in Music City, as The Last Waltz Ensemble, a popular tribute band from Atlanta devoted to playing the music of Bob Dylan and The Band, pays homage to The Last Waltz with a special concert event benefiting Musicians Corner and featuring several special guests.
Musicians Corner is proud to present a special holiday concert by Matt Wertz at TPAC's James K. Polk Theater. A portion of ticket sales will benefit Musicians Corner's free music events in Centennial Park.
