On November 25, 1976, The Band called it quits, and they along with a group of iconic friends and musicians, documented their legendary final performance at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco with the help of filmmaker Martin Scorsese. In the spirit of celebrating music and the collaborative spirit of the performance, Mrs. Henry set their sights on paying homage to that historic night, by recreating it their hometown of San Diego. Planning and rehearsing for the event took nearly a year and the stress nearly broke up the band. But for Mrs. Henry, the challenge ignited new purpose and an infectious wave of inspiration. Filmed at the internationally acclaimed Belly Up Tavern, on November 26, 2017 the documentary showcases San Diego’s finest, including guest performances from many of the city’s most respected musicians including Pat Beers of The Schizophonics, Brenden Dellar of Sacri Monti, Jesse Lee of The Paragraphs, Clinton Davis, Noah C. Lekas, Robby Gira, Brian Karscig, Roger Molina, Anna Zinova, Stephen El Rey, Nena Anderson and many more. Mrs. Henry’s “Last Waltz” not only honors the legacy of The Band’s legendary star-studded performance but conveys the kinship and powerful sense of community that exists among the storytellers, artists, and organizers in San Diego.

The show was recorded and released by Blind Owl on multiple formats including a triple vinyl set, mixed by Stephen Kaye (The Growlers, Ziggy Marley), mastered by Joe Bozzi, known for his work with Last Waltz alumni Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, and housed in a high quality LP jacket designed by artist Roy G. Biv. The vinyl package also includes an exclusive bonus 7” featuring studio versions of “The Weight” and “Evangeline.”
The documentary, Mrs. Henry Presents – The Last Waltz, debuted at the Oceanside International Film Festival to rave reviews and will be making its exclusive east coast debut at this event.
The screening will be followed by a musical celebration from Mrs. Henry, a group ignited by a consciousness-changing West Coast tour in 2015, who have spent the last four years on the road building an unrivaled reputation for their brand of intergalactic boogie with a torrent of improvisation, and in turn, a cult following atop their already well-established individual credits (Howlin’ Rain, The Schizophonics, The Silent Comedy). Endurance is their vocation and bringing unapologetically live music into a new era is their mission. Joining the musical festivities are Mrs. Henry’s musical comrades, and a favorite in the New York live music scene, cosmic indie jam band Garcia Peoples.
