Max Schang (Solo) Live at the Peter Allen Inn
February 9-6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Coming from Sharon, PA, Max Schang has played all over the area, from Cleveland, to Erie and Pittsburgh and everywhere in between. Don’t miss his first show at the Peter Allen Inn, playing some Blues, Jazz & Gypsy Jazz Standards and many others of your favorite tunes.
When the accordion got traded for guitar, Max Schang found his lifelong companion. Early studies of classical guitar brought him to Cleveland and Spain before forming his own bands, following his love for Blues and Gypsy Jazz.
After a brief stint playing in Atlantic City, he came back to the area and, as a booking agent for the Seafood Express, brought the best Blues acts to Sharon, sharing the stage with Lefty Dizz, Jimmy Thackery, Carey Bell and many others. That’s where he met Eddie Shaw & his Wolf Gang (Howlin Wolf’s bandleader) and got invited to play the Chicago Blues Fest with him and to tour Europe – twice.
Max released a Gypsy Jazz CD and several Blues albums, which got great reviews and airplay. On his gigs he is accompanied by the best musicians who all play with him for a long time. His seemingly endless bag of songs makes every evening different, high energy and fun.
