Called “Mighty Max Maritime Mondays,” and featuring The Max Weinberg Big Band, the residency previewed Feb. 14, and will become a weekly thing beginning next month with shows scheduled for March 7, 14 and 21.

“I had the pleasure of performing for a very special birthday party at Hiro in December,” Weinberg said in a statement announcing the shows. “A well-known film producer and seven hundred of his closest friends and family were in attendance. The drinks were flowing, the food was fantastic, and the crowd really got into the band. Someone said, ‘Hey. You guys should play here all the time,’ and a light bulb went off.”

The 12-member Max Weinberg Big Band will play two shows each Monday evening at the Hiro. For more information, check out the Maritime Hotel’s website or visit
