The original Max Rebo Band, from the left: Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, and Sy Snootles

The Max Rebo Band is a fictional pop music band in George Lucas's science fiction saga Star Wars. The group appeared in the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983) as a trio of aliens who perform for crime lord Jabba the Hutt. It included the blue-skinned Ortolan keyboardist Max Rebo, a plump Kitonak woodwind player named Droopy McCool, and the spindly-legged Pa'lowick lead singer Sy Snootles. Max Rebo and Droopy McCool were portrayed by actors wearing body suits and Sy Snootles was a puppet operated by two puppeteers. For the 1997 Special Edition release of Return of the Jedi, the band was expanded to include nine new characters and the Sy Snootles puppet was replaced with a computer-generated image (CGI).

The band members appear in Star Wars literature as jizz-wailers, a term that refers to a "musician who plays a fast, contemporary, and upbeat style of music."[1] The role of the Max Rebo Band in the Star Wars galaxy is elaborated upon in several short stories and comics. The group begins as the obscure Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers and consists of leader Evar Orbus, Max Rebo, Sy Snootles, and Droopy McCool. After the death of Orbus, the band elects Max as its leader and the group's name changes to the Max Rebo Band. Max secures a contract with crime lord Jabba the Hutt and the band's membership quadruples. When the contract with Jabba expires, the band becomes the Max Rebo Duo, a short-lived ensemble consisting of Max and Sy. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

The Max Rebo Band performs "Jedi Rocks" in the Special Edition version of Return of the Jedi.

The Max Rebo Band first appeared in Star Wars fiction in the 1983 film Return of the Jedi during the scenes set in Jabba the Hutt's palace on the desert planet Tatooine. In the original version the three-member band performs a Huttese language pop song titled "Lapti Nek" ("Work It Out"). The lyrics, sung by lead singer Sy Snootles, are about dancing.[2] The song was replaced in the 1997 Special Edition of Return of the Jedi with "a less dated piece of music" titled "Jedi Rocks" sung by Joh Yowza and Sy Snootles.[3] Image File history File links MaxReboBandSpecialEdition. ...

In both versions, the songs are performed shortly after the arrival of droids C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) and R2-D2 (Kenny Baker), who are sent to the Hutt to deliver a message from Jedi knight Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The band is accompanied by two of Jabba's slave girl dancers: the Twi'lek Oola and the six-breasted Askajian Yarna d'al' Gargan. Later, the band plays an untitled song on Jabba's sail barge en route to the Great Pit of Carkoon, where Jabba plans to execute Luke, Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and the Wookiee Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) in the Sarlacc.

The members of the Max Rebo Band make several appearances in Star Wars Expanded Universe literature. Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, and Sy Snootles are featured in John Gregory Betancourt's short story "And the Band Played On: The Band's Tale", published in the anthology Tales from Jabba's Palace (1995). According to this story, the band arrives on Tatooine in 3 ABY — a year before the events of Return of the Jedi. The band is led by an alien named Evar Orbus and is entitled "Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers". Orbus is killed by Bith musician Figrin D'an, leader of another jizz-wailer band on Tatooine called Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes. Droopy and Sy elect Max the new leader and they secure an audition with Jabba the Hutt. Jabba is pleased with their performance of the piece "Lapti Nek" and offers the band a lifetime contract. A silver translator droid announces to Max: "As you are an Ortolan, and know the value of food, [Jabba] wishes to pay you in that medium—all you and your band can eat in exchange for a lifetime contract."[4] At the Great Pit of Carkoon, the execution descends into chaos and the band flees from the sail barge after witnessing Princess Leia strangle Jabba. Their instruments are destroyed when the sail barge explodes. Droopy wanders into the desert to join other Kitonaks he hears playing in the distance, and Sy and Max form a new band called the Max Rebo Duo. However, at the end of the book, the pair soon split apart, with Snootles trying her hand at being a solo act and failing miserably, while Max falls in with the Rebellion and uses his musical talents to entertain the troops.

Max, Sy, and Droopy appear in two Dark Horse comics. In Dave Cooper's non-canonical "Stop That Jawa!", part of Star Wars Tales 2 (2000), the band is visiting the Mos Eisley cantina when Sy complains about her contract with Jabba and insults him. A droid bounty hunter overhears her remarks and the trio becomes nervous. They leave the cantina and discover that their vehicle and equipment have been "salvaged" by Jawa scavengers, who are pressured by the droid bounty hunter into returning the items. When the Jawas depart, the bounty hunter reveals himself to be a Human musician named Tik Tali Talosh and requests an audition.[5] In the Dark Horse comic titled "A Hot Time in the Cold Town Tonite!"

The Max Rebo band has made minor appearances in other Star Wars media. The unfinished mockumentary Return of the Ewok (1982) by David Tomblin shows the band in Jabba's Palace. The original band appeared in an episode of the animated series Star Wars: Droids titled "The Lost Prince" that aired in 1985. The band is seen performing in Doodnik's Café on the mining planet Tyne's Horky, their last gig before relocating to Tatooine.[7] The band appears in the Star Wars video games Star Wars: Demolition (2000) and Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005). A 2003 issue of the magazine Star Wars Insider gives brief biographies of the band's new members, which was created for the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi in an article called "Jabbapalooza: Who's Who in the Max Rebo Band".[2] Mockumentary (also known as a pseudo-documentary)[1], a portmanteau of mock and documentary, is a film and TV genre, or a single work of the genre. ...

Star Wars creator George Lucas states that the scene in Return of the Jedi featuring the Max Rebo Band was intended to be an elaborate production, but the crew "never really had the time to shoot" it.

The original members of the band—Max Rebo, Sy Snootles, and Droopy McCool—were puppets designed by Phil Tippett of Industrial Light and Magic's (ILM) Creature Shop. The Huttese language lyrics to the song "Lapti Nek" were written and performed by Annie Arbogast, a Lucasfilm engineer and a member of a punk rock band. The song was recorded at Lucasfilm's Sprocket Systems, now Skywalker Sound.[9] Lucas was not entirely pleased with the scene, claiming the puppets were too static and motionless; however, his options were limited.[8] Executive producer Rick McCallum contends that the requirements of the scene were too complex, even for animatronics.[10] Phil Tippett (born 1951) is a movie director and an award-winning Visual effects Supervisor and Producer, who specializes in creature design and character animation. ...

When Return of the Jedi was re-released as a Special Edition in 1997, the Sy Snootles puppet was replaced with a computer-generated image (CGI) and nine new characters were added to the sequence. Visual effects supervisor Dave Carson described the process of creating CGI characters Sy Snootles and Joh Yowza as similar to sculpting models out of clay. Carson claimed that CGI characters are more like puppets than cartoons, and that animators "constantly find limitations": "the characters don't bend right, or their mass isn't right." He also notes that these are the type of problems that confront puppeteers.[11] Besides the additional characters, "Lapti Nek" was replaced with "Jedi Rocks", a blues-inspired piece described by the Star Wars Databank as "less dated."[3][12] Image File history File links SySnootles1. ...

Lucas insists that the revised sequence added more atmosphere and quality to the film.[8] Critic Tom Bissell, however, described it as the "most unspeakable sequence in all the films, almost too depressing to discuss at any length." He was especially bothered by the decision to feature Boba Fett "flirting with the humanoid tarts who make up Jabba's dancing troupe."[13]


Band members

The Star Wars Databank describes the band as both a "diverse ensemble of lively and talented alien musicians"[14] and a "loose ensemble of musicians cobbled from the remains of a band fronted by Evar Orbus."[15] Beginning as an obscure four-member troupe called Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers, the Max Rebo band swells to 12 members before the death of Jabba the Hutt in Return of the Jedi. The band includes singers, wind players, drummers, and a keyboardist from across the galaxy. Below is a list of the members of the Max Rebo Band who appear in the original and Special Edition releases of Return of the Jedi and in Star Wars literature. A wind instrument is a musical instrument that contains some type of resonator (usually a tube), in which a column of air is set into vibration by the player blowing into (or over) a mouthpiece set at the end of the resonator. ...

He plays a chidinkalu horn, an instrument that resembles a clarinet. Droopy McCool is the stage name of the creature most people called "Snit", a name given to him by his owner, Evar Orbus. His Kitonak name is a series of unintelligible, flute-like whistles. Droopy McCool was a slave purchased by Orbus because of his musical talents. Orbus forced him to play in his band, Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers, but upon Orbus's death at the hands of Figrin D'an, McCool is freed and is given his stage name by fellow band member Sy Snootles. Droopy McCool is one of the original members of the Max Rebo Band that finds employment with Jabba the Hutt. When the crime lord is strangled aboard his sail barge, McCool escapes and wanders into the desert searching for other members of his race.

Max was a founding member of the band Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers. Upon the death of leader Evar Orbus fellow band members Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool elect Max the leader. Under Max's leadership, the band acquires a lifetime contract with the crime lord Jabba the Hutt in his desert palace on Tatooine. Max, like other members of his race, is a glutton who agrees to work for Jabba for food, much to the chagrin of Sy Snootles. While at Jabba's Palace, the band expands to 12 members. When Jabba is killed in the Dune Sea, Max and other band members escape the Hutt's sail barge just before it explodes, killing all inside.[20] With their contract with Jabba terminated, the group disbands and Max and Sy Snootles find employment with Mos Eisley crime lord Lady Valarian under the name the Max Rebo Duo. When Sy's business arrangement with Max is finished, Max joins the Rebel Alliance, claiming that the "Rebellion has the best food."[18] After the Galactic Civil War, he opens a successful restaurant.

Sy Snootles

Original Sy Snootles puppet

Sy Snootles is a robust, thin-legged female Pa'lowick alien and lead singer of the Max Rebo Band. Sy Snootles is an original member of Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi. During production, Sy Snootles' nickname was "Ms. Snooty". She was designed by Phil Tippett of Industrial Light and Magic. The character's big ruby lips were suggested by George Lucas, who referred to them as "Mick Jagger lips". In the 1983 film, the character was portrayed by a marionette-like puppet operated by two puppeteers. One puppeteer was positioned on scaffolding and controlled her upper body while puppeteer Tim Rose—concealed beneath the stage—moved her legs. For close-up shots, the puppet's mouth was articulated using a nearly invisible wire connected to a microphone stand. A punk rock band leader named Annie Arbogast provided the character's voice. In the 1997 Special Edition, the puppet was replaced by a computer-generated image.[22][12] Sy Snootles appears in the short stories "Taster's Choice: the Tale of Jabba's Chef" by Barbara Hambly and "Of the Day's Annoyances: Bib Fortuna's Tale" by M.

Sy Snootles was determined to make a name for herself in the galactic music business. Much of her early career remains unknown, but Sy and Max Rebo were co-founders of the band Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers led by Evar Orbus. When Orbus is killed on Tatooine, Max is elected leader of the band. Max negotiates a lifetime contract with crime lord Jabba the Hutt in which the band is paid in food. She tries to renegotiate the contract, but her futile searches for loopholes and escape routes are done discreetly to avoid angering the Hutt. Sy secretly earns credits by working as a spy for Jabba's enemies, particularly the Twi'lek Bib Fortuna. When Jabba the Hutt is killed, she forms a duo with Max called the Max Rebo Duo. Soon after, Sy dissolves her relationship with Max and begins her unsuccessful solo career. She tours the Outer Rim Territories under different stage names.[23][24] Bib Fortuna was a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Ak-rev

Ak-rev is a leathery-faced Weequay drummer from the planet Sriluur, a guard in Jabba the Hutt's skiff fleet, and one of nine characters added to the band in the 1997 Special Edition of Return of the Jedi. He was portrayed by an actor in a latex mask designed after the Weequay characters from the original Return of the Jedi. According to the Star Wars Databank, his drumming is derived from the Japanese art of Taiko drumming.[25] // Ubese are humanoid creatures that are primarily called on as mercenaries or bounty hunters. ... // A dangerous, yet lush world, Ragoon 6 was the location of a Jedi training site. ...

In Sriluur's capital city, Al-Campur, Ak-rev had been a monk in a monastery devoted to the Weequay god of thunder; he played the monastery's sacred drums. While on a trip to Tatooine, Ak-rev brawls with one of Jabba the Hutt's Gamorrean guards. Jabba is impressed by Ak-rev's tenacity and hires him as a skiff guard. Ak-rev accepts since several Weequay are already employed at Jabba's Palace. One day, Jabba hears Ak-rev drumming and insists that he play part-time for Max Rebo's Band. One the day of Luke, Han, and Chewbacca's execution at the Great Pit of Carkoon, Ak-rev and fellow drummer Umpass-stay remain at the palace. Upon hearing of Jabba's demise they flee from the Hutt's enclave. En route to Mos Eisley, the pair is ambushed by Tusken Raiders and Ak-rev is beaten to death.[26] // The Falleen are a scaled, cold-blooded, reptilian humanoid species with pigmentation that varies with mood, known to be as long lived as the Hutts (the Falleen have an average lifespan of 250 Standard Years) who inhabit and originate from the planet Falleen. ...

Navik banned emigration and penalized those who left the planet. Bounty hunters tracked down the Bodonawieedos and killed them. The orphaned ten-year-old Doda held an affinity for classical Rodian music and crime. His connections with the Tatooine underworld lead him to Jabba the Hutt and the Max Rebo Band. Doda remains at Jabba's Palace during the execution at the Sarlacc; when he hears of Jabba's death he steals several valuable statues from the palace and disappears.[27] // A dangerous, yet lush world, Ragoon 6 was the location of a Jedi training site. ...

Determined to make it in the music business, he travels to Tatooine to join Figrin's band. When he arrives on the planet, he discovers that Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes had fled the planet.

Rystáll

Rystáll is a colorful female humanoid singer and dancer. She is one of nine characters added to the Max Rebo Band in the 1997 Special Edition of Return of Jedi. Rystáll was portrayed by dancer Mercedes Ngoh in full-body make-up.[35]

Rystáll is cared for by Ortolan musicians that offer her the chance to performance with them as a dancer. Because of her striking beauty, she draws the attention of a high-ranking lieutenant in the Black Sun criminal organization.

Lando Calrissian comes into possession of the group, winning them from the criminal in a sabacc game. Detesting slavery, Lando frees them and they travel to Tatooine. The Ortolans arrange for Rystáll to perform with the Max Rebo Band in Jabba's Palace as a back-up singer and dancer.

Joh Yowza

Joh Yowza is the stage name of J'ywz'gnk Kchhllbrxcstk Et'nrmdndlcvtbrx, a short, furry alien creature called a Yuzzum from the forest moon of Endor. Joh Yowza is a lead singer in the Max Rebo Band; he is one of the nine characters added to the band in the 1997 Special Edition of Return of the Jedi. The Yuzzum design, however, dates back to the original production of Return of the Jedi. According to the Star Wars Databank, the Ewoks of Endor were planned to have a companion species, but Yuzzums proved too costly to produce in quantity. Only one Yuzzum puppet was made and was used as a barely-visible background creature of Jabba the Hutt's palace. In the Special Edition, the Joh Yowza design was revisited as a computer-generated image. The original Yowza puppet became the Yuzzum character Wam "Blam" Lufba in the Jabba the Hutt sequence of Return of the Jedi.[39][40] // Ubese are humanoid creatures that are primarily called on as mercenaries or bounty hunters. ...

Joh Yowza is considered short for a Yuzzum, standing only 1.4 meters (4.59 feet) tall. On Endor, he is ostracized by other Yuzzums. While the rest of his herd forages for food, he is left to fend for himself. Often, he would sit alone, vocalizing the strange cries that comprised the Yuzzum language. While searching for food, Yowza spotted a star freighter that had landed for repairs. Not knowing anything about modern technology, Yowza boarded the ship looking for food. The ship launches into space and the captain, Roark Garnet, discovers Yowza and calls him "Furball". He keeps the Yuzzum around to help cook, clean, and perform other menial tasks. In return, Yowza is well fed and taught Galactic Basic.[41][19] The fictional universe of Star Wars is a multilingual one, in which it is common to have either a passive or active understanding of many multiple languages from numerous alien races and cultures. ...


During a trip to the Hutt moon Nar Shaddaa, Yowza wanders from the ship and into a cafe where he sees Evar Orbus and His Galactic Jizz-wailers. Impressed by the music of Max Rebo, Sy Snootles and the others, Yowza sings along. Orbus signs the Yuzzum, who performs for food and shelter. The lead singer, Sy Snootles, gives Yowza his stage name. When Evar Orbus is killed on Tatooine and Max Rebo becomes the new leader, Yowzah accompanies the band to audition for Jabba the Hutt. Although the Hutt detests Yuzzums, he is pleased by the vocals of Yowzah. After the death of Jabba, the group disbands and Yowza travels to Mos Eisley. He finds a job on a small passenger liner and performs with the liner's house band in exchange for a free food and passage throughout the Outer Rim.[41] Nar Shaddaa is the largest moon that orbits the planet of Nal Hutta in the fictional Star Wars Expanded Universe. ... In the fictional Star Wars series, the Outer Rim Territories is the outermost part of the Star Wars galaxy. ...
