SCPC Concert:

This evening's Somerset County Park Commission concert will feature The B-Street Band - A Springsteen Tribute.

According to the SCPC 2010 Summer Concert Series:

"The B-Street Band was formed in Asbury Park in 1980. Since then, this entertaining six-piece band has earned its great reputation by setting the standard for tribute/party bands, performing in a wide variety of musical venues. They include a wide selection from Bruce’s early albums through his latest releases. In its recent years, the band has played at one of President Obama’s inauguration parties, at Governor Christie’s inauguration party, and at a recent Superbowl pre-party. They are the longest running tribute band."

In New Jersey Springsteen is known and appreciated as a Jersey boy - born in Long Branch and raised in Freehold - who made good and didn't forget his roots. Some of his best known songs include Born in the USA and Dancing in the Dark.

The SCPC B-Street Band concert runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Duke Island Park on Old York Road in Bridgewater. There is no admission. Bring blankets and chairs.

As the concert is outside, if the weather seems questionable, call (908)722-1200 X 351 to check for cancellation.
