The Weight Band
After years of touring, The Weight Band has released a new album of original material, packaged for today’s vibrant Americana base and capturing The Band’s rich musical tradition. Released in February 2018, World Gone Mad is a Roots Rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound.

Featuring legitimate long time members of The Band, The Weight revisits the radio hits and deep tracks from one of America’s most loved and revered musical institutions. Jim Weider replaced Robbie Robertson on lead guitar in 1985, and Randy Ciarlante, who joined The Band as second drummer to Levon Helm in 1991, are keeping the tradition of one of America’s most beloved musical institutions alive.

“The performances have inspired dancing in the aisles, reflecting the continued appeal of favorites like “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Weight.” - New York Times
