Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame Drummer Max Weinberg Brings His Band to The Great New York State Fair

One of the greatest rock drummers, Rock N’ Roll Hall of Famer Max Weinberg, brings his band, Max Weinberg’s Jukebox, to the 2022 Great New York State Fair. Weinberg, the drumming power behind Bruce Springsteen’s legendary rock as well as the longtime bandleader for Conan O’Brien’s talk shows, will perform at 6 p.m. Monday, August 29 on the Chevy Court stage. The audience will pick everything the band performs from a list of 200 songs.

State Fair interim Director Sean Hennessey said, “This is big for the Fair’s music fans: You get to see one of the greatest rock drummers of all time and you tell him what to play. When has that ever happened before? This is a unique night and one for the memory books.”
