The Last Waltz



Only one of the most awesome films of all time, (well, we think so, at least), The Last Waltz does not disappoint. If you haven't seen it, you are missing out. The movie (directed by Martin Scorsese) documents The Band's final concert, "The Last Waltz" in 1977 at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. They invited a slew of their friends to join them on stage...Bob Dylan, the Staple Singers, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell.....the list goes on... The interviews with the guys will make you laugh, and the music will make you want to watch it again and again.

Check out some of our favorite sets: The Staple Singers kill it in The Weight (and Rick Danko gets suuuuper into it). Levon Helm on Up On Cripple Creek. And our favorite? Van the Man (who can resist a man in a rhinestone embellished jumpsuit?)
