The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group formed 1964 in Toronto Canada. The lineup was Garth Hudson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm, who originally came together as Ronnie Hawkins' backing band The Hawks. The Band is most widely know as Bob Dylan's long time backing band, but their work with or without Dylan, is superb. Their first three albums are classics: Music From Big Pink, The Band and Stage Fright. Other standouts include Northern Lights Southern Cross and the live albums The Last Waltz and Rock of Ages.
