Max Weinberg’s Jukebox

Drummer extraordinaire Max Weinberg is back in the area with his lively “Jukebox” show. During this interactive concert experience, Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four-piece combo will play that night. Performing tunes from the glory days of rock and roll, audience members get to choose from a menu of over 200 songs — everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits — and hear the group play ‘em the way they want to hear them played. This unique approach brings the audience right into the action for the evening. Every show is different because you — the audience — are choosing the songs.

Friday, Nov. 16, 8 p.m. $65, $53, $48. Landmark on Main Street, Jeanne Rimsky Theater, 232 Main St., Port Washington. (516) 767-6444 or www.landmarkonmainstreet.org.

The Wizards of Winter

The progressive rock ensemble shares their holiday vibe with their theatrical concert show. The group features former members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) and rock veterans from Rainbow, Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent Band, among others. They evoke the festive spirit, weaving a story entirely based on their full-length album, “The Magic Of Winter,” along with new music. The band — showcasing soaring vocal harmonies, precision string instrumentation, powerful percussion, guitar and keyboard work — takes the audience on a music journey covering many genres, from pop to progressive rock. ”We have such an exciting lineup,” says founder and keyboardist Scott Kelly. “We can’t wait to get out there and share the magic with friends, both old and new.”
