The Band

The Band: Live at the Academy of Music

Airs Friday, October 25 at 10 p.m.  For this hour-long special, The Band co-founder and songwriter Robbie Robertson sits down with host Mike Etchart for a candid, insightful and revealing conversation on the behind-the-scenes history and dynamics of the group, and the inspiration and stories of some of their best known songs, like "The Weight", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and many others that are interspersed throughout the program. Robbie also discusses the original influences of The Band and their music, and why their sound continues to influence contemporary groups like The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons.  Before there was "Americana".......there was The Band.
