The annual event was started by the local band Polytoxic in 2005. They wanted to host a show that highlighted local talent that they played with in there travels over the last few years. So they put on a event that re-enacted The Band's "The Last Waltz," a concert film by Martin Scorsese from 1978. It was The Band's last performance and they played with many famous names this night.

This event showcases members of Polytoxic together with 50+ musicians from across Colorado; this show has become an annual tradition, bringing the community together to kick-off the holiday season. The musicians will perform the music of The Band and recreate their historical performance, The Last Waltz. To celebrate the last 13 years, we have added special guests and additional songs from years past, as well as Oakhurst as an opening performer to get the festivities started.
The Last Waltz culminates the official Holiday Canned Food and Desired Hygiene Items Drive that benefits the Denver Rescue Mission. With the support of Anthony’s Pizza & Past, Boyer’s Coffee, YellowDog Printing & Graphics, KBCO and The Westword, we are again reaching out and seeking to give back to the community by supporting the Denver Rescue Mission. In addition, we will be working with Anthony’s Pizza & Pasta, Boyer’s Coffee, KBCO and the Denver Rescue Mission on a Sound-check Dinner with the band, there will be a limited number of tickets available for this Sound-check Dinner with The Band Package.
We will donate a portion of the show’s proceeds to the Denver Rescue Mission and we will give any fan that brings canned food items to the venue (on the day of the show) a FREE Special Artwork Poster.
We invite you to share this special night with our musical family and participate in our efforts to collect as many cans of food and desired items as possible for The Denver Rescue Mission to assist needy families during this Holiday Season. So get out and support the 13th Annual Last Waltz – revisited.
We hope you will join us for the 13th year of a musical event that not only supports a worthy cause but has become a family affair.
Please get your tickets early as the show has sold-out in past years!"
