The Cate Brothers
Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8:00pm
Ernie and Earl Cate, the "Cate Brothers", have been writing and performing their unique style of rock and soul music for more than 20 years.
The link between the Band and the Cate Brothers dates back to 1966, when Levon Helm was their drummer for a few gigs in Arkansas after he had left the Hawks' tour with Bob Dylan. In 1981, five years after The Last Waltz, Levon and the Cates did a series of concerts in Canada and the US. When the Band finally was reunited again in 1983, they started out as an eight-piece ensemble with Levon, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel, plus the following members of the Cate Brothers Band:Earl Cate, guitar, Ernie Cate, keyboardsRon Eoff, bass, Terry Cagle, drums
Band guitarist Jim Weider also played with the Band during this period. The Cates teamed up with the Band again on the beginning of their 1985 tour, but had to leave after a while due to economical problems. Jim Weider instead continued as the guitarist of the Band. The Cate Brothers Band have in the later years done occasional performances with Levon, Garth Hudson, and the Band.
Tickets are $15 in advance.
