On Thanksgiving Day in 1976, iconic Canadian rock group, The Band, gave their final concert, a milestone event Martin Scorsese captured on film in The Last Waltz.

Nearly forty years later, former Fort Wayne musician Bill Mallers commemorates the concert -- and The Band's musical legacy -- with his own tribute performance. It's called "Such a Night -- Recreating The Music of The Last Waltz".

The show is on its way to Fort Wayne, and WBOI's Julia Meek called Mallers at his Indianapolis studio to discuss the project's scope and impact.
