Seven years is a long time in the music business, but that’s how long “The Last Waltz” concert has been coming back to Denver with incredible local musicians featuring Polytoxic.
In 2005, the popular local jamband wanted to create a show that would feature all their friends in the Denver music scene. They decided to re-enact The Band’s “The Last Waltz”, a 1978 concert film by Martin Scorsese that included greats like Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. That first concert at Dulcinea’s sold out in minutes and the rest is history.
They now play two shows – one at the Boulder Theater (Nov.18) and the other at the Ogden Theatre (Nov. 23). Both concerts are just prior to Thanksgiving and have become a pre-holiday tradition for many. Concert goers have supported the Denver Rescue Mission over the years whether they knew it or not.
This year, you can help feed the hungry and homeless by bringing canned food to the Denver show. Anyone who brings seven cans or non-perishable items will get a free limited edition concert poster. A portion of the show’s proceeds will also benefit the Denver Rescue Mission. It’s a great way to start your Thanksgiving weekend!
