Drummer Max Weinberg Brings Unique ‘Jukebox’ Concept to Grunin Center

Oct 31, 2018

Following Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s 2016-17 tour, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame drummer Max Weinberg announced a new concept for the small venue: “Max Weinberg’s Jukebox.” At 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18, Weinberg will present this truly interactive experience at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts, on the Ocean County College campus in Toms River.

“Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four-piece group will play that night,” the college explains. “Guests 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 – and hear the group play them the way they want to hear them played!

“The driving rhythmic force propelling The E Street Band for 43 years,” OCC adds, “Weinberg is also known 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.’”

Tickets to the upcoming concert are $42 to $55, and can be purchased online at grunincenter.org; by phone at 732-255-0500; or in person at the Grunin Center Box Office, Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A Gold Circle VIP Private Meet and Greet is available for $115 per person —J.K.H.
