E Street Band leader comes to J Street

Max Weinberg of Late Night with Conan O'Brien's Max Weinberg 7 is coming to Sacramento State this fall. His lecture, "E Street to Late Night: Dreams Found, Lost, and Found Again," will be at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 in the University Union Ballroom. Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for Sacramento State students.

The made-for-college, multi-media performance features stories and anecdotes from his days in the limelight with Bruce Springsteen as a member of Springsteen's E Street Band. Weinberg will also present a number of videos that take a behind the scenes look at life as a rock star and as a late night television personality. The audience will also be taken through the highlights and low lights of his entertainment career.

Weinberg has been in the spotlight since his early days with Springsteen's backup ensemble, the E Street Band. Sixteen years and 50 million record sales later, he joined up with Late Night in September of 1993 and has served as the show's music director ever since. In his travels over the industry's landscape, he's played with such musicians as Paul McCartney, Barbara Streisand, Sting, Pete Townsend of the Who and Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones.
