Since 1996 The Rev Tor Band has maintained a powerful presence on the east coast club and festival circuit, performing in venues from Maine to Key West, Florida. In their home stomping grounds of New England, they keep a heavy performance schedule enthusiastically supported by a large following of dedicated fans.
The Last Waltz LIVE is a benefit for Music In Common, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen, empower, and educate communities through the universal language of music. Music in Common (MiC) produces free, publicly accessible concerts, school programs, and multimedia productions with an interest in underserved areas and communities where there is a history of conflict, providing a platform for the exchange of ideas and collaborations that can lead to positive social change. Based in Sheffield, MiC has toured to more than 100 communities across the US, Middle East, and Far East and operates multiple programs locally, nationally, and internationally.
This show is a bit of a homecoming for MiC founder Todd Mack and Rev Tor Band front man Tor Krautter who grew up in Ardsley and Edgemont respectively. Years later both ended up in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts where they met through their involvement in the local scene.
