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 be played again.[1] 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 was shocked to witness this, and also a bit annoyed about being interrupted. 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.[3] The band then traveled on board Jabba's sail barge to the Great Pit of Carkoon, surviving the explosion and breaking up afterward.[4]
