Hundreds of die hard Bruce Springsteen fans filled Penn's Peak over the weekend during the return performance of Born in the USA.
Spectators pointed out that the turnout during the show was double that of their last performance.
Band members were Dave McLaurin aka "The Big Man," Matt Ryan aka "The Boss," Matthew Sully aka "Miami Steve," Joey Lunsford on piano, Atticus Finch on organ and keys, Danny Miranda on bass and Jay Nichols on Drums.
Born on the Las Vegas strip in 2004, Bruce in the USA, a popular Springsteen tribute band, debuted at the Aladdin Hotel and Casino's "V-Theatre." The band, which is led by Matt Ryan, who portrays "The Boss", from the world famous "Legends in Concert," served as a note perfect and visually accurate recreation of Bruce Springsteen and the E. Street Band.
E.Street Band members are known to perform favorites such as Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult, Joe Cocker and even the Temptations. The combination of Matt Ryan and the remaining members of Bruce in the USA proved over the weekend how they became the world's number one tribute to the real Bruce Springsteen and the E. Street Band. Clarence Clemons, who joined the band on stage in the past, said," Bruce in the USA is the ultimate celebration of Bruce Springsteen and the E. St. Band's legacy."
