Description
TIckets are being sold at the Universal Preservation Hall

Max Weinberg builds upon his celebrated career with The Max Weinberg Big Band tour.  Bruce Springsteen’s long-time E Street Band drummer and Conan O’Brien’s band leader for 17 years leads a bold, swinging 15-piece big band that continues the traditions established by Max’s musical heroes including Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Doc Severinsen, and Maynard Ferguson.

The band is comprised of a three-piece rhythm section — piano, bass and drums — and a horn section consisting of five saxophones, four trumpets and three trombones. Recent concerts this summer include performances at Count Basie Theater and the Newport Beach Summer Jazz Festival.  An intuitive drummer with powerful yet controlled playing, Weinberg showcased his talent with Springsteen and the E Street Band for 36 years. In addition, he has performed with the likes of Paul McCartney, Sting, Tom Jones, Ringo Starr (on Ringo’s drums!), Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bono and Levon Helm. He is a past winner of Playboy’s Pop and Jazz Music Poll as Best Drummer, as well as Rolling Stone Magazine’s Critics Poll as Best Drummer.

The October 15th presentation of the Max Weinberg Big Band is made possible by the generous sponsorship of The Saratogian, Palio Communications, Jim Doyle, New York Long Term Care Brokers, and Laura Farrar.
