Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg (often spelt LaBamba) is a member of the Basic Cable Band (the house band for "Conan" on TBS) and was a member of the Max Weinberg 7 (the house band for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Late Night with Conan O'Brien).
He was born in Philadelphia where he learnt to play the trombone. He made his first big break as a member of the Miami Horns and toured with Bruce Springsteen, Little Steven, Gary U.S. Bonds and Darlene Love. At the time, Max Weinberg was touring with the E-Street band and met La Bamba during these tours. This eventually lead to the creation of the Max Weinberg 7 and La Bamba's spot on the show.
