A prodigious cast of musicians and actors performed a complete re-presentation of The Last Waltz. We recorded every wondrous moment!
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.
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!
Now we need your help to bring this night to you. And this is the only place where you can get these soundboard recordings and pro shot video!
Members of Furthur, Wilco, Cass McCombs, Marco Benevento, Nada Surf, Fruit Bats, Trixie Whitley, Gomez, Ween, Vetiver, Yellowbirds, The Lonely Forest, The Submarines, Antibalas, The Long Winters, Superhuman Happiness, Alecia Chakour, Wolf!, Hello Echo, Fruit Bats, Vetiver, Rob Burger, Michael Gladis, Beth Behrs, Tom Everett Scott.
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.

- HD multi camera video download
