He’s a legend in New Jersey (and much of the rest of the world) as the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, and a late night TV icon for his long stint as the bandleader on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

But for many small charities around the country, and especially in New Jersey, Max Weinberg is also a staunch supporter they can always turn to for help.

And so, Weinberg will headline two days of performances and appearances March 26 and 27 in support of Seashore Gardens Living Center in Galloway Township.

Weinberg will perform a concert at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey with his band, The Max Weinberg Experience, March 26 and will also appear at the center to help launch a new musical program for patients with Alzheimer’s.

The concert will raise funds to create a “music space” at the center’s Alzheimer’s treatment facility, the Comfort Care residence. Tickets for the 8pm concert at The Stockton Performing Arts Center are $27 and $37. The concert is preceded by a meet and greet with Weinberg at 6:30pm.

Sunday, March 27, Weinberg will be on hand to launch a “drum circle” music program at the Comfort Care Residence. Music, especially percussion, is seen as an effective treatment and enrichment for Alzheimer’s patients.

The dedication will be followed by a conversation with Weinberg at 2pm.

Finally, the center will hold a Mix & Mingle with Max at The Palm Restaurant in Atlantic City at 5pm Sunday. Tickets are $500 for the dinner.

“We are happy to have the talented Max Weinberg as our special guest for this eventful weekend”, says Martin H. Klein, President and CEO of Seashore Gardens Living Center. “Our residents families and friends of Seashore Gardens will look forward to meeting him and getting to enjoy the new Music Space after the memorable Drum Circle Dedication.”

According to the center, Weinberg plans to travel with his biggest fan, his 95-year old mother, who looks forward to being her son's date for their weekend.

For tickets to the concert, call the Stockton box Office at 652-900. For other tickets and information, call 784-4614. All weekend access tickets are also available.
