Gray The Band Shirt
Before they were The Band, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, and Robbie Robertson originally formed as the Hawks, a backing band for Arkansas-born rock and roller Ronnie Hawkins. Between 1959 and 1963, Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawkins were the hottest tickets in the Canadian rockabilly scene. They parted ways with Hawkins in 1964 and began to tour as Levon and the Hawks and the Canadian Squires. After Bob Dylan caught wind of their reputation, he hired the group in 1965 to back him as he prepared for his first electric tour.
1967 became a pivotal turning point for the Hawks. While Dylan was recuperating from a motorcycle accident in Woodstock, he invited the Hawks to join him which led the group to rent a large pink house close by, dubbed“Big Pink”. Creative jam sessions with Dylan ensued and those recordings would be known as“The Basement Tapes”. By October, the group adopted the name The Band and churned out their first album, Music from Big Pink. Blending elements of country, rock, folk, R&B, and soul, the album was positively received while the song,“The Weight” became a classic hit. The Band had emerged from Woodstock with a new identity and went on to release ten studio albums. They were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1989 and five years later, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
