When the Conan O’Brien starts up his new show, "Conan," Nov. 8th on TBS, Max Weinberg won’t be his band leader anymore.

But Conan is keeping it in the family.  According to Arts Beat, Jimmy Vivino will be taking over duties as band leader. 

 

"Of Mr. Weinberg, Mr. Vivino said, "Max has his big band out there that has been his dream all his life, kind of a Buddy Rich band. And there’s a kid in Jersey that works with him occasionally. A singer-songwriter! Some guy that’s got some hope over there!"

 

Vivino is of course referring to Weinberg’s other "Boss," Bruce Springsteen, which might mean there is a future E Street Band tour in the future?  

If so, we will miss Weinberg’s punim on the new show, but we’d be willing to sacrifice.
