The B-Street Band:
The B-Street Band first performed as "Backstreets, a Tribute to the Boss" on May 19, 1980 in Asbury Park, NJ for an audience of over 2000 Bruce fans. From the heart of the Jersey shore, "Backstreets" was the first band in the world to do a unique tribute to a live performer. Nearly 5,500 performances and 34 years later, the B-Street Band is still the hardest working tribute band on the circuit, with almost 200 shows per year throughout the country. Notable performances include opening for Bruce outside at the Philadelphia Spectrum for the final 4 shows of the historic arena. The B-Street Band's unprecedented legacy continued as they represented NJ at both inaugurations for President Obama in 2009 and NJ Governor Chris Christie in 2010.
