Performing over 150 shows since April of 2017, Max Weinberg’s Jukebox
continues to barnstorm the country, blasting out the hits!
As Chuck Berry instructed us in his classic “School Days,”…drop the coin right into
the slot” audiences have thoroughly embraced the idea of picking and calling out the
songs the band pays—in real time and in a variety of intimate venues.
From Beatles to Bruce and Stones to Steppenwolf the band infuses these classics
with the respect the songs deserve.
As one fan said, “It’s not a concert—it’s party! The bar was packed!”
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Marc Steczyk, director of the Lincoln
Amphitheater, in Indiana, had to say:
“Max Weinberg’s Jukebox was one of the most interactive, energetic performances
that we’ve ever had at the Lincoln Amphitheater! Max, literally, leaves the stage to
be amongst the crowd—his fans—and lets them pick the set list from a scrolling list
of 300+ songs…and they play it…on the spot…spot on! Max is a pro’s pro, as was his
entire band—tremendously professional to work with and a great asset to our
entire performance series!”

Egyptian Theatre CompanyLive theatrical performances have long been a centerpiece of Park City's culture. In the late 1800's, the ornate Park City Opera House was located near our current site. On a warm June night in 1898, fire roared downhill from the American Hotel and quickly consumed most of the town, including the Opera House. In a Determined effort to restore live theatre to the town, the Dewey Theatre soon opened its doors in 1899 on the site of what is now the Egyptian Theatre. The Dewey remained a popular cultural center until its roof collapsed under a record-breaking snowload in 1916. In 1922 new construction began on the site of the old Dewey Theatre. Influenced by the recent discovery of King Tut's tomb, The Egyptian Theatre opened on Christmas Day, 1926. Supervised by an Egyptologist, The Egyptian Theatre was adorned with lotus leaf motifs, scarabs, hieroglyphics and symbols of life and happiness. Park City was once again flush with a first class showplace, this time for films and live performances. The Theatre operated as a community gathering place from that day forward. The Theatre changed names multiple times, and had minor modifications made each time. The Theatre continued to anchor live performances and film screenings on historic main street. With the rebirth of Park City as a ski and resort town in the 1960's, an increasing population of locals and tourists came to town. The Egyptian - then known as The Silver Wheel Theatre - continued to present live theatre and film, old fashioned "meller dramas" were the most consistent fare. By 1978 the building's architectural integrity was again threatened. Preservation of its distinctive Egyptian features was necessary. Through much local effort, fundraising, and the presence and support of Mrs. Fields Cookies Headquarters, the building was refurbished and became home to Park City Performances in 1981. Live theatre and performances of all genres were again presented on the boards of the theatre. That same year, The US Film and Video Festival - later renamed The Sundance Film Festival moved to Park City with The Egyptian Theatre as the original home. In the mid 1990's, the building was in need of major repair and renovation. Save Our Stage Foundation was formed by a few community-minded individuals who raised funds for a major facelift to restore the building to its former glory. Today, the Mary G. Steiner Egyptian Theatre hosts a variety of theatre, comedy, musical acts, special events, community functions and more. The Egyptian Theatre continues to function as a landmark venue on Park City's Main Street while retaining the distinctive flavor of years gone by, much like Park City itself.(435) 649-9371 BoxOffice@ParkCityShows.com
