The Weight Band at Jimmy’s

Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club
135 Congress St
Portsmouth, NH 03801

THE WEIGHT BAND presents a dynamic set of classic Americana that draws upon roadhouse rock, funky swamp pop, blues, country soul and folk music. Composed of band leader, Renowned Guitarist JIM WEIDER (The Band, Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Band, Jim Weider Band), Acclaimed Keyboardist BRIAN MITCHELL (Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Band), Prolific Bassist ALBERT ROGERS (Jim Weider Band, Jimmy Vivino), Drummer MICHAEL BRAM (Jason Mraz) and Keyboardist MATT ZEINER (Dickey Betts), the veteran quintet shares a deep appreciation and knowledge for this music, which Weider describes as the “Woodstock Sound.” The Weight Band’s origins are tied to Woodstock and some of its most famous inhabitants, The Band. Weider, a Woodstock native, served as The Band’s lead guitarist from 1985-2000, following Robbie Robertson’s departure. In the late 00s, he replaced Jimmy Vivino in the Levon Helm Band, which already included Mitchell. The Weight Band is known for their exciting live performances!
