Terms and Conditions:

**Please note fees include Evanston and Cook County amusement tax.** We want to make sure that all patrons know what to expect when attending events at SPACE. Please note that not all tickets guarantee seats. Seating varies show by show, so please pay attention to the description of the seating level that you select. A "Reserved Table Seat" guarantees one seat at a cabaret table. Every individual in your party needs a ticket in that section in order to sit at your table. Table seats are held until one hour after the start time of the show. Reserved Table Seats and any will-call tickets are non transferable - the name of the person ordering must match the name of the person picking up the tickets. A “GA Limited Seating” ticket guarantees access to the concert, but does not guarantee a seat. Seating is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. If seating is absolutely necessary to you, please purchase a Reserved Table Seat. For certain shows, we will have a "GA Seated" section, which guarantees a chair, but no table. Seats for this section are guaranteed until showtime. A “GA Dance Floor” or “Standing Room” ticket is just that. There is absolutely no seating in either of these sections. Please do not purchase a ticket in these sections if you will be unable to stand for the duration of the show. Doors for concerts open one hour before the start time of the show. SPACE reserves the right to change the start time, or to add performers to a lineup. Ticket buyers will be emailed with any major changes. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Pizzas from Union Pizzeria can be brought into the concert. SPACE has a full bar and cocktail service during shows. Flash photography is not permitted in SPACE. This is a listening room, and it is important to us that performers are able to be heard. Patrons talking during quiet shows may be asked to step outside so others can enjoy the show. SPACE is an all-ages venue, but patrons must be 21 to drink alcoholic beverages. No refunds will be given under any circumstances. By continuing with this purchase, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions stated above.

 I understand and accept these terms.

Additional Information

Performing songs of The Band, THE WEIGHT BAND is keeping the spirit and the music alive that helped define an era.  Members of THE WEIGHT were either actual members in The Band, or are directly and deeply connected to their legacy.  The group features Jim Weider from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band, Marty Grebb, who wrote for The Band and worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, and Albert Rogers, who shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson in The Jim Weider Band.  Michael Bram, the newest member of THE WEIGHT, played with Jason Mraz.  

Prepare for an unforgettable performance and enjoy timeless hits like "The Weight", "Up On Cripple Creek", "Ophelia", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Rag Mama Rag" and so many others.  Hear the most authentic presentation of The Band's music performed on stage, and see why the Chicago Sun Times proclaimed “THE WEIGHT carries on where THE BAND left off.”  Come and take a load off.  

Jim Weider (VOCALS / GUITAR)  
Thirty years ago, Jim replaced Robbie Robertson as lead guitarist, singer and songwriter for The Band.  Featured on Jericho, Jubilation, and High On The Hog albums, Jim toured with the group right up until the end and appeared in numerous Band performance videos and documentary segments.   
Brian Mitchell  (VOCALS / PIANO / B3 / ACCORDION / HARMONICA) 
As a member of The Levon Helm Band, Brian played piano, organ and accordion as well as contributing to vocals.  He now fills those same roles within THE WEIGHT.  Highly regarded within the music industry as the consummate musician, Brian has performed with Bob Dylan, Al Green, BB King and countless others. 
Marty Grebb  (VOCALS / B3 / PIANO / ACCORDION / SAXOPHONE) 
A talented multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, Marty’s connection to The Band runs deep.  He wrote for the Jericho and Jubilation albums and performed on Jubilation, as well as having worked on projects with Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson.  Like the other members of THE WEIGHT, Marty has toured with many great artists, including Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Bonnie Raitt, and Etta James, just to name a few. 
Albert Rogers  (VOCALS / BASS)  
Albert plays bass and shares vocal duties as a member of THE WEIGHT.  He’s shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson in The Jim Weider Band, and has also performed with Sid McGinnis, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmy Vivino, Albert Lee among many others.
Michael Bram  (VOCALS / DRUMS) 
Soulful singer and multi-instrumentalist, Michael "Leroy" Bram has toured with Jason Mraz and recorded tracks with Bob Margolin of The Last Waltz fame.  His connection to The Band comes by way of the extended community who played at Levon Helm Studios in the Chris O'Leary Band, an offshoot of players from Levon's band, The Barnburners.
