Beginning in July of 2017 through spring of 2018, when Springsteen is not touring, Max will hit the road with a four piece rock band - Max Weinberg's Jukebox. With a screen behind Max listing over 100 song titles, Max goes into the crowd and takes requests from the list and then tells short stories about how that song has a connection to him. It's heavy on Beatles, Bruce, Stones, etc. This show is perfect for intimate seated venues with a capacity of 250 - 1000 seats, fairs, festivals, casinos and corporate and private events of all sorts.
The band consists of Glen Burtnik (Styx), Bob Burger and John Merjave.
The three members come from the very popular New York & New Jersey band known as the The Weeklings, who are routinely heard on Little Stevens Underground Garage on Sirius
He rose to success as the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, joining in 1975 after answering a newspaper ad that famously requested "no junior Ginger Bakers". Weinberg's consistent beat gave the E Street Band a solid foundation until Springsteen dissolved it in 1989.
Since the inception of Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 1993, he has been the leader of that show's band, the Max Weinberg Seven. In the show, Weinberg's mellow persona is often a counter balance to Conan's sometimes excited and sarcastic nature. However, in many comedy skits, Weinberg is presented as a twisted character with various sexual fetishes. In the past several years, especially since the departure of Late Night cohost Andy Richter, Max has had less of a presence in the show. Once Springsteen reunited the E Street Band in 1999, Weinberg began taking leaves of absence from the show in order to go out on tour.
Weinberg is the author of The Big Beat: Conversations with Rock's Greatest Drummers (1991), a series of interviews with drummers from all eras, as well as a companion series of CDs released on Rhino Records. The Max Weinberg Seven released a self-titled album in 2000.
