Stage Fright - The Concert

The THE BAND Band presents

Saturday, August 31 2024

8:00 pm Showtime


“Stage Fright – The Concert” returns to The Woodstock Playhouse on Saturday, August 31st, with The THE BAND Band, a tribute to The Band.


The Band is inextricably linked to Woodstock, from a little pink house outside of town to a certain festival bearing its name. In August 1970, they released their third album, Stage Fright, recorded right here on the site of the original Woodstock Playhouse. Now, The THE BAND Band performs the album in its entirety, including the songs “The Shape I’m In,” “W.S. Walcott Medicine Show," and “Stage Fright,” and other classic songs from The Band's extraordinary repertoire. They will be accompanied by the TTBB Horns and Larry Packer on fiddler, who performed with The Band at The Last Waltz in 1976.


The THE BAND Band is the only nationally touring band dedicated exclusively to the accurate reproduction of The Band's music. Gary Solomon, bassist and co-founder of The THE BAND Band, has a personal connection with Stage Fright. "It was my first album. I got it for my 13th birthday when it came out, and I’ve been a huge fan of The Band ever since.” A few years later, a 19-year-old Solomon found himself in the audience at The Last Waltz at San Francisco’s Winterland Arena on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, what he still refers to as “the most incredible musical happening I have ever experienced.” 


Solomon adds that he got the idea to present a live performance of Stage Fright for the 50th anniversary of its release in 2020. “Back in 1970, The Band wanted to record it as a live concert, but after The Woodstock festival the previous year, the town turned them down. So this is the concert they might have played.”  Back at the Playhouse for the 4th year in a row, it’s fast becoming a summer tradition.
