An Evening with Max Weinberg’s Jukebox (Concert Ticket ONLY!) - 8/23
at City Winery New York City
Fresh off the hugely successful The River Tour 2016-2017 of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band—where the group played 89 concerts nearly four hours long each night in 15 countries amassing $300,000,000 in ticket sales, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Drummer Max Weinberg announces a new touring concept for the small venue—“Max Weinberg’s Jukebox”.
A truly interactive experience, Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four piece group will play that night. Performing songs from the glory days of rock and roll your guests get to choose from a video menu of over 200 songs-- everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits—and hear the group play ‘em the way they want to hear them played!
That’s right—the crowd gets to yell out their choices and Max plays them! This unique approach is fun and satisfying.
How many times have you attended a show where you yearned to hear your favorite performer play your favorite song? With Max Weinberg’s Jukebox your dream will be realized.
Weinberg, the driving rhythmic force propelling The E Street Band for 43 years, is also known to millions of fans for his 17 year stint as the bandleader and comedic foil to talk show host Conan O’Brien and is the only musician in history to make the leap from a starring role in one of the world’s iconic rock groups to leading his eponymous band on NBC’s “Late Night” and “The Tonight Show”.
And if that wasn’t enough Weinberg managed to do both gigs simultaneously from 1999-2009.
Throughout his 50 year professional career Weinberg has played with some of the biggest and most diverse names in music-—James Brown, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, BB King, Tony Bennett, Ringo Starr, John Fogerty, Stevie Winwood, Sheryl Crow—even Isaac Hayes performing his legendary “Shaft” with a 30 piece orchestra Max conducted on the Late Night broadcast.
In 2009 Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band performed the halftime show at Super Bowl 43 to the largest audience ever recorded for that event—over 100,000,000 people.
Weinberg also has the distinction of being the drummer on the two biggest selling rock albums in history—Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The USA” and Meatloaf’s “Bat Out Of Hell”.
While on hiatus from his E Street Band work and in addition to his 4 piece “Jukebox” Max Weinberg also leads a twelve piece rock and soul aggregation featuring 6 lead vocalists, a 3 piece horn section and the grooving-est rhythm section this side of Motown. Perfectly geared for your private event or fundraiser, “Mighty Max’s Rock and Soul Revue” will have your guests up and out their seats from the first downbeat as they dance the night away to hits from the classic era of soul music on up to the soul reinventions of contemporary artists like Bruno Mars. And with all the rock and TV history he has participated in and observed from the best seat in the house Weinberg continues his highly regarded public speaking series begun in 1986 with the publication of his book The Big Beat. Here your audience has the opportunity to take a peek behind the curtain as Max regales them with stories of life on the road, and the big personalities with whom he’s had the pleasure of working. Followed by a comprehensive Q & A with his audience your patrons will leave the venue feeling that they’ve had a true personal interaction with the guy they’ve seen behind the Boss or behind the kit or in a skit on television. Why you might ask is Weinberg busier than ever with these projects after all these years with Springsteen?
He puts it simply—“It’s too late to stop now”.
