An intimate night with an Arkansas legend.

LEVON HELM: At the Peabody.
  • LEVON HELM: At the Peabody.
Levon Helm, who rose to rock fame as the drummer and singer of The Band, will bring his own band, which includes daughter Amy Helm, to the Peabody Hotel ballroom for a cabaret performance on Saturday, Oct. 1. Showtime is 8:30 p.m., and a trio of singer-songwriters Sean Rock and Jeff Clanton and bassist Roland Gladden, who make up part of the Lookback Marys, will open the show. General admission tickets are $40. VIP tables are available on request. Helm, a native of Turkey Scratch near Marvell in Eastern Arkansas, also played mandolin in The Band and is widely regarded as one of the most important musical artists in the state’s history. His distinctive voice and songwriting brought an authentically Southern perspective to the most Canadian-based Band. His all-star band on Saturday will feature two top guitarists who are renowned among their fellow players: Jimmy Vivino, who plays with the Max Weinberg 7 from the “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” show, and Larry Campbell, a multi-instrumentalist and sideman to Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris and others. Little Sammy Davis, a living legend in the blues genre, will also provide vocals with Amy Helm and dad. Call 399-8006 for tickets.
