All proceeds go directly to benefit & support Arts Garage programs. No tables, No BYOW – just you and the band! (Standing room only. No outside food or drink admitted.)

A truly interactive experience, Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four piece group will play that night. Performing songs from the glory days of rock and roll– guests get to choose from a video menu of over 200 songs– everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits—and hear the group play ‘em the way you want to hear them played!

That’s right—the crowd yells out their choices and Max plays them! This unique approach makes you feel like you are part of the band. How many times have you attended a show where you yearned to hear your favorite performer play your favorite song? With Max Weinberg’s Jukebox your dream will be realized.

Florida Atlantic University – film screening

Feb. 4 at 2 p.m.

University Theatre, 777 Glades Road

Florida Atlantic University and the Latin American Training Center present the U.S. premiere of the film “Dear Ambassador,” which tells the story of the Brazilian ambassador who saved hundreds of Jews in France during World War II. The film will be presented in Portuguese with English subtitles.

Tickets to the film are $10 and can be purchased at www.fauevents.com or by calling 800-564-9539.

“Dear Ambassador,” which was directed by Luiz Fernando Goulart and produced by Joaquim Vaz Carvalho, tells the extraordinary story of Luiz Martins de Souza Dantas, who served as Brazilian ambassador to Paris during World War II. A largely unsung hero, he defied his own government’s orders by granting hundreds of unauthorized visas to Jews and others facing imminent capture and death. Consisting of re-enactments, interviews with survivors, and archival footage, “Dear Ambassador” commemorates Brazil’s counterpart to Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg, and like them, was awarded posthumously the title of “Righteous among the Nations” at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem. Goulart will introduce the film and also participate in a panel discussion with the audience following the screening.
