E Street Band members visit Sunderland school

Saxophonist Ed Manion, keyboard player Charlie Giordano and percussionist Everett Bradley made an impromptu visit at the Barbara Priestman School and Technology College, and performed a gig in front of pupils.

Teacher Emily Landells is a Springsteen and Southside Johnny fan and contacted Ed Manion: “I had spoken to Ed on many occasions over the years, before and after Southside Johnny gigs around the country and knew he was part of Springsteen’s horn section on the Wrecking Ball Tour. I decided to take a long shot and asked him via email if he or any of the other band members would like to visit our school to give a performance”.

Emily said she was left stunned when she received an email confirming not just Ed’s appearance, but two other fellow E Street stars.
