The Weight Band originated inside the famed Woodstock, NY barn of Levon Helm, when Jim Weider (guitar, mandolin and vocals) and Randy Ciarlante (drums and vocals) - both former members of The Band - were performing "Songs of The Band" with Garth Hudson, Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs. Weider, Ciarlante and Isaacs began to carry on the tradition of performing songs from The Band, inviting Brian Mitchell (keyboards and vocals) and Marty Grebb (keyboards, saxophone and vocals) to complete their sound. The Weight Band later added Albert Rogers (bass and vocals) and Michael Bram (drums and vocals) to complete their current lineup, alongside Weider, Mitchell and Grebb.
