Garth Hudson to Join Jim Weider at the Iridium

Garth Hudson and Jim Weider perform in The Band

Through both Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson have been in the press a good deal lately, it has been a while since we’ve heard from the other surviving member of The Band, Garth Hudson. The keyboardist will perform with latter day Band/Helm collaborator Jim Weider at New York’s Iridium Jazz Club on February 17. Jim Weider’s PRoJECT PERCoLAToR will also feature Rodney Holmes (drums), Mitch Stein (guitar), Steve Lucas (bass) and Jason Crosby (keyboards/violin). Additional guests are expected.

It will be great to hear Garth in action again. Anything from the Band’s members is bound to be fun and musically challenging. I was surprised to learn that Robbie Robertson did not intend “The Weight” to have a religious theme. I recently posted on my Rockaeology blog at http://tinyurl.com/4tsgh2g that his Nazareth was a town in PA and the song’s characters — like Fanny and Crazy Chester — were all real folks the group knew. Thanks!
