Stage Fright - The Concert
The THE BAND Band presents
Saturday, August 27th
8:00 pm Showtime
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. Some of its best-known songs, “The Shape I’m In,” “W.S. Walcott Medicine Show," and “Stage Fright,” became staples at the Canadian-American group’s concerts.
The THE BAND Band is thrilled to bring “Stage Fright - The Concert” back to The Woodstock Playhouse on Saturday, August 27th, presenting authentic, true-to-form interpretations of the 10 album tracks, as well as other classic songs from The Band's extraordinary repertoire. They will be accompanied by the TTBB Horns and fiddler extraordinaire Larry Packer.
The THE BAND Band is the only nationally touring band dedicated exclusively to the accurate reproduction of The Band's music. Gary Solomon, 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, or probably ever will.”
Solomon adds that he has been wanting to present a live performance of Stage Fright with The THE BAND Band for years. “Back in 1970, The Band wanted to record the album as a live concert, but after The Woodstock festival the previous year, the town turned them down. I thought, why don’t we do it now?” After last year’s successful pandemic-delayed 50th anniversary concert, it’s destined to become an annual event.
