Greeata Jendowanian was a female Rodian who worked as a singer and dancer for the Max Rebo Band. During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, she attended a performance of a Mon Calamari opera on the planet Coruscant. Four years after the Battle of Yavin, she and the rest of the Max Rebo Band performed for Jabba the Hutt at his palace on the plant Tatooine. The group played the song Jedi Rocks for the Hutt, who demanded that they repeat the performance, but then dropped his slave dancer Oola into his rancor pit during the repeat performance, causing the band to stop playing. Greeata was visibly shocked when Oola was eaten by the rancor, and then witnessed Princess Leia Organa arrive in the palace disguised as the bounty hunter Boushh with the Wookiee Chewbacca as a prisoner.
