The Last Waltz


Lance Anderson’s critically acclaimed performance of
‘The Last Waltz – a Musical Celebration of The BAND – Live’ celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the historic concert in 2021.

POSTPONED- Due to the latest news with COVID19 we are forced to postpone this filming- please stay tuned for a new date once the lock down has lifted.

An all-star Canadian cast of award-winning blues and roots musicians, under the direction of Juno award winning producer and musical director, Lance Anderson, will perform selections from their hit show that recreates the atmosphere of The Band’s final concert, which was captured in Martin Scorcese’s award-winning concert film, The Last Waltz.
2021 will mark the 10th year that The Last Waltz has played for Hugh’s Room Live. Their two Sold Out nights in Nov. became an annual must see for the HRL faithful.
The full stage show has an all-star line-up, featuring 4 guests. For Covid considerations this virtual concert will feature two of those guests, one of the county’s top soul and gospel singers Quisha Wint and Kitchener ON phenom Matt Wei dinger, both members of MATCHEDASH PARISH. This will be an up close and intimate experience of the music of the Canadian Music Hall of fame members The BAND.
This crowd pleasing show, which has thrilled audiences at the CNE Bandshell (Toronto), Mississauga Living Arts Centre, the Shenkman Theatre (Ottawa), Centennial Hall (London ON), Peterborough Music Fest, Orillia Opera House, Huntsville Festival of the Arts (Algonquin Theatre), Victoria Hall Cobourg, Gayety Theatre Collingwood, Peter’s Players in Gravenhurst, and at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, will make any event an extravaganza! They have headlined the Mariposa Folk Festival , Kitchener Blues Fest, Southside Shuffle, Wasaga Beach Blues Festival, Norfolk County Fair (Simcoe) and Orillia Spring Blues Fest to name a few.
On the American Thanksgiving of 1976 at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom,
The BAND invited many of their friends to join in their farewell concert celebration. These friends included Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Van Morrison, Neil Young and others who performed with The Band on this historic night. In this homage to The Last Waltz, Anderson’s special guests will perform a few of the songs played and sung by these guest artists at the memorable 1976 con cert.
Backed by a 9 piece band that includes Jerome Levon Avis (godson of Levon Helm) on drums and vocals, Terry Blersh on guitar, Dennis Pinhorn (Hawks) on bass, Rob Gusevs (Blood, Sweat and Tears) on organ and Anderson (Matchedash Parish) on piano and vocals, this is a group of seasoned veterans who love the music. Anderson’s band also features a stellar four-piece horn sec tion including David Dunlop (Boss Brass) on trumpet, Simon Wallis (Lighthouse) Bari sax, Gord Meyers (Blood, Sweat and Tears) on trombone and tuba, and Chris Murphy (Maple Blues Band) on Tenor sax. Truly an all-star band!
“What makes this performance special is the connection these musicians have to the music,” says Anderson. “They love the music and per form these tunes from the heart.”
Anderson’s production of The Last Waltz has experienced rave reviews at the many festivals where it has appeared over the past few years and has consistently been referred to as the “best of the festival.”
“It wasn’t just the musicianship, which was second to none; it was the energy … these musicians have brought forth a live music gem that is worthy of any stage I know of and probably more that I don’t,” said P. Rellinger of the Kawartha News after seeing Anderson’s show in Peterborough.
The Band is a Canadian national treasure, with four members of the legendary roots music group originally from southern Ontario. In the 1960s, they were initially brought together as ‘The Hawks’ by Ronnie Hawkins and later gained international recognition as Bob Dylan’s band on his groundbreaking electric tours. This one hour intimate tribute performance of The Last Waltz includes a wide se lection of fan favourites, such as The Band’s ‘The Weight’, ’The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down’, ‘Up On Cripple Creek’, ‘Life is a Carnival’, ‘The Shape I’m In’, ‘Rag Mama Rag’, ‘Ophelia’ and more plus music from their special guests.
Don’t miss this opportunity Saturday April 10th. 2021 8PM to join in our celebration of the music of this legendary group on the 45th anniversary year of The Last Waltz.

Dan Hill Live at The El Mocambo

Dan Hill Presented by Hugh’s Room Liveat The El Mocambo
In March of 2020, The Board of Hugh’s Room Live was in long time lease negotiations with the landlord of 2261 Dundas Street West. During this time, The Board anticipated an exit of their long time home and began meeting with various venues in the city of Toronto to ensure all concerts booked had an alternative location.
When COVID19 forced Hugh’s Room Live to pause programming following Ari Hoenig on March 13th, The Staff packed up operations at 2261 Dundas Street west and all concerts were postponed.

Out of this, new relationships were formed including one with The El Mocambo.
We are thrilled to announce Dan Hill will be performing on March 25th with a special VIP Green Room hosted after the show by Jully Black.

Hugh’s Room Live patrons that purchased tickets for Dan Hills concert scheduled in 2020, will have their tickets honoured for this event, with access to the VIP green room and a digital download of Dan Hills new record- On The Other Side of Here.

Digital Concerts

We can’t believe its been almost one year since Ari Hoeing performed on stage at 2261 Dundas Street West as part of international Drum Week.
When The Board of Hugh’s Room Live hit roadblocks in negotiating a long term lease, meetings were held with various venues in the City of Toronto to present our programming calendar- scheduled to start April 2020.
We had no clue that when we turned the lights off on March 13th and moved 20 years of history into storage that we would be writing this post one year later.

We are happy to announce our digital programming, starting with Celebrating The Music of Tina Turner. We loved having this show on stage in January of 2020, and we think you’re going to love it from the comfort of your home. Push the sofa out of the way and kick off your shoes- Quisha will have you dancing!
