Max Weinberg, an American drummer and television personality, most widely known as the longtime drummer for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and as the bandleader for Conan O’Brien on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

Weinberg grew up in suburban New Jersey and began drumming at an early age. He attended college planning to be a lawyer but got his big break in music in 1974 when he won an audition to become the drummer for Springsteen. His powerful but controlled playing on albums such as Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A. stabilized the E Street Band sound and Weinberg became a mainstay of Springsteen’s long concert performances. Springsteen dissolved the band in 1989 and Weinberg spent several years considering a law career and trying the business end of the music industry before deciding he wanted to continue with drumming.

In 1993, Weinberg got the role as bandleader of The Max Weinberg 7 for Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Weinberg’s drums-driven jump blues sound and his role as a comic foil prospered along with the show, giving him a second career. In 1999, Springsteen reformed the E Street Band for a series of tours and albums; Weinberg worked out an arrangement that allowed him to play with both O’Brien and Springsteen. In 2009, Weinberg moved to the short-lived Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien as leader of Max Weinberg and The Tonight Show Band. After that ended, he formed and toured with a new ensemble, the Max Weinberg Big Band, and in 2010 chose not to follow O’Brien to the new Conan show. Weinberg continued playing with Springsteen and in 2014 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band.

Jazz Conceptions Orchestra

“Led by trumpeter Alex Nguyen, the JCO features an amazingly talented group of fantastic players. The arrangements feature wonderfully orchestrated versions of classic jazz material, as well as originals, played by a fine-tuned ensemble with first rate soloists. If their recent gig at New York’s Iridium jazz club was any indication, the response to the JCO has been overwhelmingly supportive and I can see why they are getting rave reviews.” — Danny Gottlieb

The Jazz Conceptions Orchestra , a nine-piece collective of performers, composers and arrangers, devoted to performing a wide spectrum of music within Jazz and beyond.  Rooted in swing, while following the evolution of jazz, their extensive repertoire draws from members’ original compositions, adaptations of masterworks of jazz greats, and new original arrangements of standards.
   
First a testing ground for members’ personal projects, the JCO quickly gained critical acclaim playing to packed houses for regular gigs at Kokopelli’s Jazz Club in Savannah, Georgia. The group’s collaborations with Nashville vocalist Annie Sellick have been highly praised, with Sellick noted as “a perfect complement to the band’s versatile and intricate arrangements.”  In recent years, the band has played concert series, clubs and festivals, including repeat engagements at Iridium Jazz Club, performances which have also been met with cosiderable praise. With the release of the JCO’s self-titled debut album, the group was applauded for its “great arranging, superb solos, and a deep understanding of jazz style.”

“These cats can play! There’s a lot more here than mere flash. I’m certain that you will discover what I discovered: substance.” — Bunky Green

“…a group of young musicians who recreate, reinvent, restructure, and reformulate standards on a high level, resulting in some very interesting ensemble moments that demonstrate subtlety in both arranging and original composition…” — Ivo Martin, Radio Universitaria do Minho – Portugal

“Great arranging, superb solos, and a deep understanding of jazz style … This group proves that jazz is alive and thriving in our next generation of great players.”— Mark Nemoytan, ITG Journal

Vanessa Perea’s voice is strong in the tradition of the masters. With a rare ability to sing diverse styles at the highest degree of authenticity, beautiful sound and sweeping range, Vanessa shows a confidence and poise beyond her years. Miss Perea was born on September 24, 1987 in Glenridge, New Jersey to a Cuban mother and Colombian father. She grew up listening to salsa tunes on her father’s record player and practically learned to dance before she could walk. At 6 she was already singing in the church choir and by high school, piano & voice lessons led to performances in school musicals and choirs. In 2010 she received a BA in Music Education from New Jersey City University. There she studied with Grammy Nominated Jazz Vocalist, Roseanna Vitro, and internationally acclaimed soprano, Donna Zapola-Connolly. 

Vanessa can be seen at her shows throughout New York and New Jersey at distinguished jazz clubs such as Zinc Bar, Smalls, Birdland, Zeb’s, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola and the Hyatt in New Brunswick, NJ. She has shared the stage with musical luminaries including James Moody, Jimmy Heath, Charles McPherson, Randy Brecker, Dwayne Burno, John Lee, Claudio Roditi, and George Cables. Vanessa’s future continues to grow brighter with her upcoming CD release entitled Soulful Days, set to hit the street on ZOHO, July 8th 2014. The line up for the album includes the young cast of Dave Lantz, Dylan Shamat, Evan Sherman, Robert Edwards and special guest Matt Jodrell.
