Max Weinberg Big Band

by

No longer content to provide the backing music to the Masturbating Bear (the Conan O’Brien character–not his boss, the Boss), drummer Max Weinberg quit late-night TV last year to continue playing with the E Street band and start the ensemble he’s leading tonight, the Max Weinberg Big Band. What began as an one-off in December–when the 12-piece group played the music of Count Basie and Buddy Rich–has led to a Monday residency at the Hiro Ballroom beginning tonight. Were that not enough, curious fans can also ask for a “Mighty Max cocktail.”
