The Band

The Band is one of the most badass and influential bands in music history. They began as the backing band for both Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan, and eventually moved on to writing and performing their own songs. Check out one of my favorites: The last Waltz "up on cripple creek"

Members of The Band include Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, Robbie Robertson, and Levon Helm. Their effortless style consisted of retro suits or flared jeans, always paired with worn in leather boots and the occasional top hat. It is impossible to replicate their style because every piece of clothing they wear seems to have a mysterious nostalgic story behind it.
