The Band: A History sits down with Jan Høiberg, the curator and owner of https://theband.hiof.no, the number one resource for all things Band related. Started in 1994, the website grew to become the official website of The Band. As years passed Jan became friendly with Band members Rick Danko, Levon Helm and Garth Hudson, travelling to Woodstock, New York on several occasions.
Høiberg has run the website from Norway for over twenty-seven years, and his obsession as an eighteen year old kid seeing The Last Waltz in 1980 has led to to creating one the finest resources on the web.
