Who’s Who in the Star Wars Universe? – The Max Rebo Band


Max Rebo was a male Ortolan from Orto and a popular musician who led the Max Rebo Band. He mainly played the red ball jett organ, which he played with his feet; he and his band often performed for criminals and otherwise sleazy clientele.

The Max Rebo Band


The Max Rebo Band was a 12-member band that played at Jabba the Hutt’s palace on the planet Tatooine around four years after the Battle of Yavin. The band played the song “Jedi Rocks” for the Hutt and his court, which Jabba demanded to be played again. During the second performance, however, Jabba interrupted the band by dropping his slave dancer Oola into the Rancor pit below his throne room, where she was devoured. The band then witnessed Leia Organa enter the palace disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh and claim the bounty on the Wookiee Chewbacca. When Organa later freed the smuggler Han Solo from carbonite, several members of the band were present with Jabba in hiding. At least one member of the band, Max Rebo, then travelled on board Jabba’s sail barge to the Great Pit of Carkoon.

The former lover of Ziro the Hutt, she killed him on the behalf of his nephew, Jabba Desilijic Tiure, after he had abandoned her.

He often performed duets with Sy Snootles. Shortly before the Battle of Endor, Yowza and the rest of the band performed at Jabba the Hutt’s palace on the planet Tatooine. Among Jabba’s courtiers, there were many people who disliked Yowza’s voice and dreamed of silencing him brutally. The Hutt, however, appeared to like the Yuzzum singer, and Jabba’s opinion was the only one that mattered in his palace.
