Returning after the Covid-19 hiatus of 2020, Frank Muffin is back with another annual full-album tribute performance: The Band’s The Last Waltz.
Originally a live concert event on Thanksgiving Day 1976, The Last Waltz was filmed by Martin Scorsese and released as a documentary film in 1978, as well as a 3-LP album. The concert featured many well-known guests and friends of The Band, including Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Neil Diamond, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Bob Dylan and more. As a slight change of format, Frank Muffin has selected songs from the album, the film, and the concert experience to bring some band and fan favorites to life. As an add-on special, attendees can also hang out with Frank Muffin and some of our guest musicians to watch the original The Last Waltz movie on Sunday, November 28 also at Carnahan Hall.
Proceeds from this year’s charity event will support The Arc of Tippecanoe County
