few fellow musos and i were discussing ideas for a new working band a few years ago.
Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Gunners, CCR, Bee Gees, there's a shedload of tribute bands, some good some terrible.
But NZ doesn't have a Springsteen Tribute band, so about 3 years later, we've started one.

Here's our first clip from our rehearsal space, and we've booked our first gig on the 30th of march.
Will be a pair of tickets up for grabs for nzguitars people closer to the day!



Bloody fun being in such a big band - it means you can dig deep into the song and find all the interesting bits so it's been a lot of fun already.

The version Springsteen does with Pete Seeger is fantastic. On the Sowing the Seeds complication album. I bought just that track not the whole album.

Tom Joad is a fantastic album, just wish Springsteen's vocals were clearer. For me, he tends to slur a bit. But my hearing is rubbish. Love 'The River' and Born in the USA.

Sounds good Ben, all the best for it.

cheers! to be honest, when we started, I only really knew the classic pop tunes, Dancing in the Dark, born the USA, etc, etc. I like those tunes OK, but down't love them. I was happily suprised to explore the Springsteen back catalogue and find dozens of amazing songs from every era. Some absolute gold in there!

Cheers - that's the idea and I hope we can get some good gigs. Band is sounding bloody good, if I do say so myself . . .

I was really stoked with how this sounds. I recorded about 26 channels of audio off our sound console and the band and everyone's tones were so good that it took me about 15 minutes to mix the track. So rad to have a singer who sounds like Bruce! :mental:

I'm trying to convince the lads+lady that we should play both the Electric version of Ghost of Tom Joad and the original acoustic version :-)

Cheers for the kind words, everyone!

Yep, that works. That's my idea of a really good time. Good luck holding that many members together and I mean that genuinely.

Mate, that sounded fantastic! Please pass on compliments to the singer and sax player. You need these two for sure, hang on to them....

I used to car share with a guy a longtime ago who played nothing but springsteen on the hour long journey to and from work. After awhile I wanted to kill him and it put me off springsteen for life. I've heard his entire early discography many times :(

Rock'nRoll is joyous.
If you find the groove, don't matter whose songs you're playing.
