On American Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, Canadian-American rock group The Band, held their farewell concert dubbed as "The Last Waltz", where an all-star guest line-up was in attendance — Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Bobby Charles, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, and Neil Young. The concert was filmed by director Martin Scorsese, who made it into a documentary of the same title. Hailed as one of the greatest documentary concert films ever made, the press had a field day giving it nothing but rave reviews. The New York Times in 2003 placed the film on its Best 1000 Movies Ever list, while Rolling Stone called it the "Greatest Concert Movie of All Time".
On May 25, 2005, Denver's premiere top jam band Polytoxic had "a fun little idea" to showcase such a momentous concert event on the live stage calling it "Last Waltz – Revisited". Boasting over 70 guest musicians from across Colorado, a full horn section, and a carefully crafted setlist that stays true to over 30 songs culled from The Band's vast discography and played at The Last Waltz concert.
