A prodigious cast of musicians and actors performed a complete re-presentation of The Last Waltz. We recorded every wondrous moment!

THE VISION

We had an idea.

What if we put together a song for song, word for word re-presentation of The Last Waltz? Every song, and every poem, with our favorite musicians. We made that happen, at it's home, in San Francisco.

While the original Winterland venue is no longer with us, San Francisco's historic Warfield Theater filled it's shoes seamlessly as the home of this musical magic. 

THE STORY

Just as hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, the musical storm began inside at the Yellowbirds rehearsal space!

A few months, and many rehearsals later, our group of friends had assembled some of the most talented musicians in America, and The Warfield was filled to the top!

As you can see from the video and pictures (below), the show was an adult dose! Now we need your help to bring it to everyone that missed it!

The Complete Last Waltz .... on film

Brooklyn's Walleye Pictures and Sound has hundreds of hours of live footage, just waiting to be brought to life. We had 11 cameras shooting every note and moment and we're going to deliver that to your home.

Unlike The Last Waltz, The Complete Last Waltz movie is just that, every performance of the night. There will be bonus footage, but our mission is to bring you the night as it was. All three and a half hours.

We are producing the film in multiple formats:

- HD multi camera video download

- DVD format (at a higher cost due to additional licensing fees)

    Do a reading at The Complete Last Waltz! The original Last Waltz had five readings at the beginning of the second set. We did too. Last year it was actors Beth Behrs, Michael Gladis and Tom Everett Scott. This year, so far, we'll have Mike Kelly from House of Cards and hopefully schedules permit Beth, Michael and Tom to join YOU! There is one spot for a female and one for a male at The Capitol Theater. A bound hardcover picture book of your show including pictures of your reading.
