As the drummer in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and the leader of Conan O'Brien's TV talk-show house band, Max Weinberg has not had a lot of free time over the last decade. His dream to create his own swinging 15-piece Big Band is now a reality.
Building upon his 17 years as the leader of what Tom Shales, famed TV critic of The Washington Post called, "the best band in late night Television," the Max Weinberg Big Band is a bold, swinging 15-piece aggregation that continues the traditions established by Max's musical heroes Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Doc Severinsen, and Maynard Ferguson.
In addition to performing with Springsteen's E Street Band, Max has kept himself busy for nearly four decades performing with the likes of Paul McCartney, Sting, Tom Jones, Ringo Starr and countless more musical icons.
