Love For Levon Helm

20130205-161610.jpg

Levon Helm, legendary drummer and vocalist for The Band passed away in April 2012. In October last year an amazing group of performers met in New Jersey to pay tribute to Helm. Dubbed “Love For Levon,” the concert raised money to help pay off the mortgage on Levon Helm Studios (home to The Midnight Ramble). In March 19th this very special occasion will make its way to DVD, CD and Blu-Ray.

Speaking of raising money, the official website has the rather sad announcement:

“In an effort to continue to pay off debts, we’ve decided to sell Levon’s RoadTrek vehicle.
This was a very special vehicle to Levon and he used it to enjoy traveling and touring in comfort.”
