Max Weinberg bringing Big Band to Durham in 2011

It's quite a long way away right now, but it's worth noting that as a part of it's 2010-11 Star Series, the Carolina Theatre in Durham will be hosting E Street Band and Late Night/Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien drummer Max Weiberg's big band.

The show will happen on February 4, 2011. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday, July 23 for $48, $38 or $28 here and at the box office.

Weinberg's Big Band features 15 players including himself, with five saxophones, three trombones, four trumpets, bass, drums and piano. There are no vocals or guitar. The group's set will feature songs by Count Basie, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and more. Check out a video of a recent performance below.

It should be a fun night of music. It's unclear whether Weinberg will be joining Conan O'Brien's new late night show on TBS in the fall, but the show will be Monday through Thursday and so far there are no dates that conflict with the TV schedule.
