BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN PLAYS SURPRISE STONE PONY GIG TO BENEFIT SON'S COLLEGE

10/19/2009

On Saturday night (October 17th) Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa performed a benefit for son Evan's school Boston College at Asbury Park, New Jersey's Stone Pony. The couple, who was joined by Southside Johnny, was backed by Bobby Bandiera's band with a horn section.

Highlights included Springsteen and Scialfa duetting on Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston's classic song "It Takes Two," Scialfa taking the lead on the Exciters' "Tell Him," and the Ad Libs' "The Boy From New York City," the Rolling Stones' "Time Is On My Side," and Springsteen performing a rousing rendition of the Archies' "Sugar Sugar."


Springsteen went on to play such favorites as "Glory Days," "Rendezvous," "Spirit In The Night," "Cadillac Ranch, " "Brilliant Disguise," "Cover Me," "Pink Cadillac," "Dancing In The Dark," and the rarely-performed Human Touch track "Man's Job." Southside Johnny took the lead on a handful of tunes, including the "Boss"-written "The Fever," and Sam Cooke's "Havin A Party," among others.


Springsteen and Scialfa have three children: Evan, 19; Jessica, 17; and Sam, 15.


Patti Scialfa says that having her and Springsteen's teenage kids growing more independent has been beneficial for the creative process: "I think you're always nurturing, but you have more free time. And inside that time, the time allows you more ability to come back and center into yourself again."
