Many call them the original tribute band, having followed the developments in Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band for over 30 years.
Others just call them a tireless band from nearby Jersey that happens to do Springsteen, does it well, and totally rocks the house, no matter where they play.
And if you call 570-325-4009, get 2-for-1 tickets – only $25!
Originally known as Backstreets, the band was formed in Asbury Park, New Jersey in May of 1980 by musicians Will Forte and the late Bob Chipak. Since that time, the band has performed from Maine to the Bahamas for well over 3 million people.
Whether it’s opening for Bruce and the E-Street Band at the Philadelphia Spectrum Final Four Shows, entertaining Hard Rock Chairman/CEO James Allen and fans at both the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl, rockin’ Duke University and the graduating classes of Harvard and Princeton, the list goes on and on.
Over the last 30 years, the band has been estimated to have played in over 800 different nightclubs and 200 colleges through 20 different states and is now considered to be the longest running tribute band in the world.
Whatever you may call them, the Opera House calls it a great time for the entire family. Hope to see you!
