Come join us to make this year’s Last Waltz celebration better than ever and to ensure the success of the holiday canned food/desired items drive for the Denver Rescue Mission
The 10th Annual The Last Waltz - Revisited will be held at the historic Fillmore Auditorium. This event showcases members of Polytoxic together with over 40 guest musicians from across Colorado, a full horn section and over 30 songs from The Band’s extensive catalog - recreating their historical performance, The Last Waltz.
The concert has become an annual tradition for many of those involved in the show, as well as for many of the people that come out and see the show year after year – bringing the community together to kick-off the holiday season. To celebrate the last 10 years, they have added special guests and additional songs from years past. In addition, Buck Perigo will be opening the show performing Woody Guthrie’s entire Alice’s Restaurant.
Back in 2005, Denver's number one jam band, Polytoxic, wanted to put on a show that could showcase all the great local musicians they had been playing with for the past few years. They decided to re-enact The Band's The Last Waltz, a concert film by Martin Scorsese from 1978 of The Band's last performance that included all of that era's greatest musicians - Eric Clapton, Dr John, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, etc.
The show was held at Dulcinea's in Denver's Capitol Hill area on May 25, 2005, and Polytoxic planned on it being a fun little show that would garner a little bit of interest. It sold out in minutes, surprising the band and fans alike, and became the biggest show they had ever thrown. So big, in fact, they decided to do it again in 2005, this time on the night before Thanksgiving at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom.
Polytoxic's The Last Waltz - Revisited immediately went from a "fun little" idea at a small venue to one of the biggest events of the year. It has become an annual tradition, playing to sold-out capacity crowds.
The Last Waltz culminates the official Holiday Canned Food and Desired Hygiene Items Drive that benefits the Denver Rescue Mission. With the support of Anthony’s Pizza & Pasta, YellowDog Printing & Graphics, KBCO and Westword, they are again reaching out and seeking to give back to the community by supporting the Denver Rescue Mission. In addition, they will be working with KBCO and the Denver Rescue Mission on a VIP Dinner with the band. There will be a limited number of tickets available for this Dinner with The Band VIP Package.
They will donate a portion of the show’s proceeds to the Denver Rescue Mission and they will give any fan that brings 10 or more canned food items to the venue (on the day of the show) a FREE Special Artwork Poster.
They invite you to share this special night with their musical family and participate in their efforts to collect as many cans of food and desired items as possible for The Denver Rescue Mission to assist needy families during this Holiday Season. Please get your tickets early as the show has sold-out every year in the past!
