Now in its fifth year, this annual Last Waltz reenactment has officially become a midwinter institution. Whether or not you've seen the infamous Scorcese footage of the Band's star-studded farewell performance is almost irrelevant at this point, as the Big Pink showcase has taken on a life of its own, with familiar local faces filling in for the famous guests who appeared during the Last Waltz show back in 1976. Johnny Herchert, Chad Whittaker, Rob Hilstrom, Pete Sands, and Dave Russ will hold court as the Band, with a smattering of their friends making special appearances throughout the night, including Brandon Scott Sellner as Eric Clapton, Terry Walsh as Van Morrison, Andra Suchy as Joni Mitchell, Dan Israel as Bob Dylan, Nate Dungan as Ronnie Hawkins, and many more. With Pat Hayes, Kent Militzer, Melissa Moser, Mick Sterling, Big George Jackson, Jared Rush, Randy Casey, Katie Gearty, and Larry Fountain.
