The Weight Band’s musical connections to The Band run deep. Replacing Robbie Robertson as a member of The Band, Weider toured internationally with Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko. His tenure included writing for and recording three studio albums with The Band.
The group released their first full-length studio album in February 2018. World Gone Mad is an Americana/Roots Rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound. Recently, The Weight Band was announced as the first headliner for the new Folk & Americana Music Series, a celebration of the genre's rich musical history and influence, at the Boch Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
