The event creator says

This all-star event pays tribute to The Band’s milestone final concert through unprecedented performances from an extraordinary line up of artists including lead members of The Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, The Radiators, The Meters, Bonerama, and many more.

“Last Waltz New Orleans: A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz” will also serve as a singular memorial to the late Allen Toussaint, showcasing the powerful horn charts the great New Orleans musician created for 1976’s original Last Waltz concert.

“Last Waltz New Orleans: A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz” will star a superband led by musical director Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule, The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead) and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/multi instrumentalist Don Was, keyboard master John Medeski, country superstar Jamey Johnson, The Meters’ pioneering bass player George Porter, Jr., The Radiators’ Dave Malone, monster drummer Terrence Higgins (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, John Scofield’s Piety Street Band), The Bonerama Horns’ Mark Mullins (Galactic, Harry Connick, Jr.), and more still to be announced. As with all Blackbird Presents events, special surprise guests are also expected. Keith Wortman is the event’s Creator and Executive Producer.

Blackbird Presents previously honored NOLA’s iconic musical legacy with its 2015 “Nevilles Forever: A Celebration of The Neville Brothers and Their Music” and with its 2014 “The Musical Mojo of Dr. John: Celebrating Mac and His Music.”
