When Han and company walked into Maz's cantina style bar, I was really hoping to see these guys from Episode IV playing:

But sadly, it was a different band - who were they?

  • Well it has been 30 years, I'd guess the boys split up. :/

Visual Dictionary (page 73) covers it in detail:

The band members are Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert "Sticks" Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.

No, I didn't make the names up. Here's proof:

Visual dictionary doesn't offer many (or any :) details on them, except that they don't seem to be a permanent house band.

Side notes:

  • The band you hoping to find was called Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, all 7 members were Bith.

  • In a sweet and delicious symmetry to those of us suffering from the overabundance of OCD, the band from Episode IV had 7 players, while the band from Episode VII had 4 players.

  • According to V.D.'s author, Pablo Hidalgo's twitter, the names are meant to be "blues" invoking and he's quite proud of them.

  • Note: as of yet, according to all I know, the band has no name. Therefore, I'm dubbing them Sound Makers, in honour of XKCD. Jan 7, 2016 at 1:52
  • @randal'thor - TY. Not as good as this or this or this :) Those were my favorite, if you don't count Bingo and Obi1 lies. Jan 7, 2016 at 2:07
  • I should probably nominate some more of yours on my answer to "Best of 4th Quarter 2015" on meta. It's so hard to pick out just a few though!

  • Still not good as good as "Elan Sleazebaggano" the drug dealer.

  • Any chance the Max Rebo band had six players? Nope, those Jizz Wailers were only three in number, although in the special addition there were 12! (2x6, perhaps?) Jan 7, 2016 at 5:48
