The Max Temple Band
Friday & Saturday @ 9:30
The Max Temple Band was founded in the fall of 2008 and based on Max’s passion for the Blues and Rock & Roll. The band was quickly noticed due largely to Max’s ability with the guitar as well as the level of music they were able to play. Right out of the gate they were playing music from Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B King, The Allman Brothers and Eric Clapton. The fact that he was doing all this while only being 16 make 8th Street’s story even more remarkable.

The genesis of Max’s desire to have is own band came from being lucky enough to see Walter Trout perform live at Milwaukee’s legendary Shank Hall when he was only 13. After the concert all he had to say was: “I want to do that.” He finally formed the band when he was 16 and they hit the ground running. The most frequent comment heard during or after their performances is: “How does a kid that young know how to sing and play like that?”

Max does does his own arrangements of covers from all these influential artists as well as performing many of their own originals. A few of the cover arrangements that alone are worth the price of admission are Stevie Ray’s Crossfire and Tightrope, Clapton’s Born Under A Bad Sign, B.B. King’s I’m Moving On, a screaming version of Tinsley Ellis’ Pawnbroker, Walter Trout’s Dust My Broom, The Allman Brothers Whipping Post and a little good old Texas Blues from ZZ Tops’ Billy Gibbons.
