Max Weinberg’s Jukebox, a great band featuring E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg and members of The Weeklings, brought their show to The Landis Theater in Vineland, New Jersey tonight. The show featured a scrolling video screen listing various rock classics to choose from. The audience chose songs from the list and the band played them. Some of my favorite performances of the evening included Jackson Browne’s “Doctor My Eyes”, The Band’s “The Weight”, Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up”, and The Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated”. It was amazing to watch Max switch gears from one song style to the next. His versatility as a drummer never ceases to amaze me.
Max has been offering a Meet & Greet package that includes an autographed drum head and the opportunity to have your picture taken with him. During the Meet & Greet, he was extremely generous with his time, spending at least half an hour talking with a small group of fans, signing autographs, taking pictures, and sharing stories from throughout his career. He went above and beyond making it an experience I’ll never forget. It was an amazing night and I crossed one more item off my bucket list. I have finally met Mighty Max!
Some fans had the opportunity to join Max on stage for the closing number, “Glory Days”. Here’s a brief clip:
