In support of the Ottawa Foodbank, The Bushpilots will be performing The Band’s Last Waltz with a whole truckload of their friends …
Martin Scorsese's landmark film of The Band’s monumental Thanksgiving farewell concert at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom … a show that featured musical guests Ronnie Hawkins, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Dr. John, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield & Van Morrison … still ranks as the greatest rock n roll film ever produced … you’ve probably seen it so we probably don’t even have to tell you that.
A crew of some of Ottawa’s finest musicians … Matthew Chaffey, The Cooper Brothers, Lynne Hanson, Ray Harris, Murray Kinsley, Rocket Rached, Jeff Rogers, Rey Sabatin Jr, Marc Seguin & Shawn Tavenier … are stepping up to help us recreate all those magic moments from 1976 … along with the Cripple Creek Horns, featuring Zeek Gross on saxophone and Rick Rangno on trumpet.
Your hosts for the evening ... Tales From the Turntable's Wendy Daniels and Sandy Sharkey.
All this amazing entertainment for the ridiculously low low price of a TEN dollar donation to the Ottawa Food Bank!
… and once again we are blessed with amazing raffle prizes …
