The Band left behind a timeless legacy of unforgettable music and avast catalog of fabled songs. Band members Garth Hudson, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, Rick Danko and Robbie Robertson embodied a musical alchemy that has been firmly cemented in myth and legend.
Their impact on rock music and culture is permanently etched in the hallowed halls of American history.
ChestFever, a new band from San Diego, CA, is breathing new life into that legacy, in celebration of one of the richest repertoires of Canadian-American popular music. ChestFever is comprised of members of the San Diego Music Award-winning rock band Mrs. Henry, including keyboardist Jody Bagley, guitarist Dan Cervantes, bassist Blake Dean, and drummer Chad Lee.
Each a talented lead vocalist on their own, the group setting gives them a chance to combine their talents in an incendiary celebration of melody and verse. The group also features horn player and arrangerJesse Audelo of Sure Fire Soul Ensemble and Fresh Veggies Micro Brass, echoing the contributions of arrangers John Simon and Allen Toussaintto the bands original music. The seed for Chest Fever was born out of Mrs. Henrys sold-out November 2021 show "Mrs. Henry Presents The Last Waltz" at the BellyUp in Solana Beach, CA. It was there playing alongside legendary musicians such as Eagles collaborator and hit songwriter Jack Tempchin, violinist Scarlet Rivera of Bob Dylans Rolling ThunderRevue, solo artist/Black Crowes member Marc Ford, and local hero Isaiah Mitchell, that the idea took flight. Chest Fever is a melting pot of rock and roll, a deep musical exploration of a vast catalog steeped in storytelling, told through the prism of the American Mythos and the cosmic spirit of the WestCoast.
From The Band and Bob Dylans collaborative home recordings, The Basement Tapes, through music from Big Pink and The Last Waltz. The thread connecting all of this music is a storytelling tradition that runs through all the known corners of an old weird America, as noted by scholar Greil Marcus. Chest Fever is the next step in this tradition, moving the legacy of The Band forward into the 21st century. The stories, legend and community of The Band live on through the passion and magic ofChestFever, newly embodied in the live performance and burning energy they bring to every stage.
