Johnny Max Band & The Weber Brothers

Sunday, April 7, 2024 • 7:30 p.m. • Saint Patrick's School auditorium, 160 Hemlock Avenue.
The Johnny Max Band has always been a crowd favourite at any festival, with danceable and well written songs, along with a frontman who is not afraid to jump into the audience and get them going.  The award winning Johnny Max Band has travelled across Canada performing at some of the finest Blues and Roots Festivals over the last 25 years.  The Johnny Max Band is celebrating their 25th Anniversary & with 7 albums, 2 JUNO Award nominations, multiple Maple Blues award nominations and working on two new albums (studio and live), The Johnny Max Band are embarking on another exciting chapter with their new music.  The Johnny Max Band brings together the sounds and influences of New Orleans, Memphis, Toronto R&B, Soul, Blues and Rock’n' Roll!

Ryan and Sam Weber left their Baltimore, MD home one night as teenagers, with the aim of meeting their idol, rockabilly legend Ronnie Hawkins, and ten hours later showed up at his doorstep. “The Hawk”, the elder statesman of rock whose former protégés (Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson) went on to reshape music history as “The Band”, was duly impressed by the pair’s immense raw talent, and promptly invited them to audition for his storied backing band, The Hawks. Mere months later, after surviving the intense musical apprenticeship of his fabled “Rock ‘n’ Roll Boot-camp,” they were in: full-blooded Hawks. By the ages of 18 and 21 they had already performed alongside Kris Kristofferson, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Jeff Healey and the Tragically Hip to name a few.  Over the past 18 years they’ve recorded 15 independent albums and toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.
