Max Weinberg’s Jukebox
Thursday, May 31 at 8 p.m.
96.5 WKLH presents Steve Palec’s Rock ‘n Roll Roots Backstage Stories and Q&A with Max Weinberg. Interspersed with the songs, Steve will host insightful “storyteller” interviews with Max, providing unique insight into the stories behind the songs.
Fresh off Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s hugely successful The River Tour—where the group played 89 concerts in 15 countries, each nearly four hours long—Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Drummer, Max Weinberg presents an entirely new and exciting concept, 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, the audience gets 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!
That’s right—the crowd gets to yell out their choices and Max plays them! 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 you can realize that dream!
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.
