Weekend in L.A. by George Benson was recorded live in September and October of 1977 in the West Hollywood Roxy Theatre, and released in 1978. It was placed first in the Jazz Albums and R&B Albums list during 1978.

The band gets deep into the four-on-the-floor Funk. Benson's rhythmic instincts on guitar are as sharp as ever. George's voice sounds more throaty and soul-oriented than before. The balance between vocals and instrumentals is even. It was recorded with unusually lively crowds. Weekend in L.A. introduced "On Broadway", an extended stomping version of the Drifters' hit.

The band existed amongst others of Stanley Banks, Jorge Dalto, Ronnie Foster, Harvey Mason and Phil Upchurch.
