Nearly 30 local musicians will gather on the stage of The DAI’s Renaissance Auditorium to recreate the historic performances of The Band’s The Last Waltz and celebrate the original concert, which took place November 25, 1976. There will be two performances again in 2017, on Wednesday, November 22 and Friday, November 24.
Such A Night: The Last Waltz Live In Dayton features many of Dayton’s most talented musicians, including a seven-piece horn section. The original film The Last Waltz documented The Band’s final concert, and it featured performances by Dr. John, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan.
Proceeds from the performances benefit member-supported WYSO Public Radio and The Dayton Art Institute. This annual concert always sells out – be sure to buy your tickets early!
