Bruce Springsteen surprises Asbury crowd

Last Saturday Joe Grushecky was playing at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park when his old pal Bruce Springsteen showed up and jumped onstage to play for about two hours. The sweaty small club was packed and Bruce delivered a hot performance.

The setlist was pretty much the same as the Light of Day benefit show held last January at the nearby Paramount Theatre, with some Grushecky-penned songs (“Pumping Iron”, “Talking to the King” or “Chain Smokin'”) and a lot of Springsteen’s (including “Adam Raised a Cain”, “Save My Love”, “Racing in the Street ’78”, “Frankie Fell in Love”, “Pink Cadillac” and a great “Because the Night”). E Street Band’s saxman Eddie Manion was part of Joe G’s band.

Joe will be back in Asbury Park in October with a show to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Springsteen-produced album “American Babylon”.

Bruce Springsteen actúa por sorpresa en Asbury Park

La noche del sábado Joe Grushecky actuaba en el Wonder Bar de Asbury Park cuando su amigo Bruce Springsteen apareció por el local y subió al escenario para tocar algunas canciones… durante casi dos horas. El pequeño club, abarrotado de gente, vivió una noche de sudor, emociones y rock’n’roll con una actuación que mostró a un Springsteen en plena forma física y musical.

El concierto fue muy similar al que ofreció con Joe en enero durante el festival Light of Day (celebrado a pocos metros del Wonder Bar), con una mezcla de canciones de Grushecky (“Pumping Iron”, “Talking to the King” o “Chain Smokin'”) y de Springsteen (destacando “Adam Raised a Cain”, “Save My Love”, “Racing in the Street ’78”, “Frankie Fell in Love”, “Pink Cadillac” o una espectacular “Because the Night”). El saxofonista de la E Street Band Eddie Manion formó parte de la banda de Joe para esta actuación.

En octubre Joe volverá a actuar en Asbury Park para celebrar el 20º aniversario de la edición de “American Babylon”, el álbum producido por Bruce Springsteen que le rescató del anonimato.
