Best Cover Band Orange County 2009 - SPRINGSTEEN! The Premier Tribute to the Boss

Cover bands are ubiquitous in the clubs and bars of our not-so-humble backwater, and there are more than a few excellent tribute bands, including the Rolling Stones' homage, Jumpin' Jack Flash, and the godfather of them all, Wild Child, who have been around far longer than the band they're based on, the Doors. But this Springsteen-tribute band does something a bit different: Rather than focusing on the biggest hits of the Boss, circa "Born In the USA," front man Josh Tanner, who grew up in the same Jersey town as Springsteen, leads his talented band mates through set lists heavy on pre-superstar Boss tunes. Looking like he stepped right off the cover of Born to Run, the scruffy, wiry Tanner prowls his way through such hits as "Jungleland" and "Thunder Road," but its on such catalog stuff as "Saint In the City" and "Lost In the Flood" that he truly channels his muse.

Good day! I'd like to tell you a couple of good words concerning your resource. Being a blogger myself, I give preference to those sites which have something worthy to read and think over. I have found many useful documentaries and videos at rapidshare search engine , but am still in the process of good resources search.

Why see a cover band while Bruce still tours? I mean, what is the point. Shouldn't a true artist focus on their own music and not the music of someone else?

You can't possibly get any closer to a real Bruce concert.This guy looks just like young Bruce and sounds even closer.I saw this band in Las Vegas and was blown away.

Having gone to Freehold Boro with Josh and graduating in the same class I was thrilled to hear he had a band and was playing at the Jersey Shore at the Wonderbar in Asbury Park. Thus I posted the news on Classmates and quite a few Freehold folk showed up. It was a fantastic event and urge anyone who enjoys the sounds of Bruce to see Josh. The entire band takes on the persona of the real thing including Clarence. If you like Bruce go see this band. They are fantastic.

Being from the same hometown as Josh & Bruce (Freehold, NJ), I have been to a few BRUCE shows. Josh and his bandmates do a phenomenal job of re-creating the energy of a real BRUCE show. Whenever I see them perform in SoCal, I am immediately taken back to my "homeland" and thoroughly enjoy their shows! Anyone who loves classic rock-n-roll should not miss them!!

These guys are awesome! It is a real pleasure to listen and watch their tribute to the Boss - this recognition by the Weekly is totally deserved! Rock on!

There is no question that "Springsteen! The Premier Tribute to the Boss" is the ultimate Springsteen tribute band! Professional musicians with years of live and studio experience, the energy on stage of Josh Tanner (Springsteen) and Anthony Terrezza (Miami Steve) (both are originally from New Jersey), Henry Alexander as Clarence, and the unity of the entire band sets them apart! You will want to see them again and again! I have seen them many times - and am always impressed!!! They are available for Private Parties, Concerts and Holiday Parties!

Yes they are indeed phenomenal. I never miss a show when they are in Southern California and I even followed them to New Jersey in July for their East Coast tour. They are a class act! They have a show coming up October 22 at The Renaissance in Dana Point. The place is packed when they play so if you want to catch them book a table so you have a great seat. The food is great there also.
