Description

This article is from the Conan O'Brien FAQ, by Joseph Gebis j-gebis@uiuc.edu with numerous contributions by others.

3.2 Who is the band? (Late Night with Conan O'Brien)

The band is "The Max Weinberg 7." The members are:

Max Weinberg: leader/drums
Jimmy Vivino: guitar
Mark "Love Man" Pender: trumpet
La Bamba: trombone
Jerry Vivino: saxophone
Scott Healy: keyboards
Mike Merritt: bass

Max Weinberg is the former drummer of the E Street Band, Bruce
Springsteen's major band. His snare drum from the "Born In The USA" tour,
"The Big Beat," is on display at the Hard Rock Caffe in NYC. Max started up
his own record label and production company in 1990 called Hard Ticket
Entertainment. He produced the albums by Killer Joe on this label. He
recently released an album called "Let There Be Drums," a 3 CD collection
of Max's favorite drum tracks from the 50's to the 70's.

Max recently regrouped with the rest of the E Street Band for Bruce
Springsteen's "Greatest Hits" album. He has done several performances with
Bruce and the band since then, and is featured in the video for "Murder
Incorporated," one of the two new songs on the "Greatest Hits" album. Max
has also appeared with Bruce when he has performed surprise shows at
Jersey shore clubs.

Max also has a one-man show called "Growing Up On E Street" that he
has shown on over 150 college campuses across the country since starting
it in 1986. It contains three films that Max produced, and a question and
answer session. In 1990, he expanded the program to include motivational
seminars.

Max went back to Seton Hall after a 15 year break to receive a B.A.
in communications in 1989. He also received a HERO award from the Big
Brothers/Big Sisters of America for his contributions to the organization
in October, 1990.

Max lives with his wife, Becky, and their two children in Middleton, NJ.

There used to be a incomplete discography of the band members here.
Grace Nall (gracen911@aol.com) has created an expanded discography,
videography, and background information on the members of the band. She
is also working on a web page for the band. You can view the full text of
the discography at Damone's web page or Joe Shaw's FTP site. (See
section 1.24 for both)
