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.
Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums): Personally recruited by Levon Helm, Randy shared The Bands vocal and drumming duties alongside Levon. He toured with the group for more than ten years, was featured on "Jericho," "Jubilation" and "High On The Hog" albums and also appeared in many of The Bands live performance videos and archival footage.
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/sax): A talented multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter, Martys connection to The Band runs deep. He wrote and recorded on "Jericho" and performed on "Jericho" and "Jubilation" albums, as well as having worked on Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson projects. Like the other members of THE WEIGHT, Marty has toured with many great artists, including Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, and Etta James.
