For dozens of customers at The Wonder Bar near the Jersey Shore, Saturday night was supposed to be a casual night of good drinks and music from Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers.
But the evening got a giant dose of rock ‘n’ roll when the one and only Bruce Springsteen showed up to perform more than a few songs.
According to NJ.com, the “Born in the U.S.A.” rocker arrived onstage slightly after 10:30 p.m. where he played a whopping 15 songs. In other words, lucky patrons got to experience a free two-hour show from the superstar performer.
Great show at The Wonder Bar tonight!!!” the business wrote on Facebook Saturday night. “Chris Daniels and The Proof, Billy Walton Band, Joe Grushecky and The HouseRockers and yes…Bruce Springsteen!”
According to Wonder Bar owner Debbie DeLisa, it was a night many attendees didn’t expect and of course will never forget.
“It was thrilling. It was a magical night,” she told CNN. “Even the whole street got completely packed with people. It was insane…He’s just a regular guy.”
A guy who also has a slew of hits including “The Promised Land,” “Because the Night” and “Atlantic City” that he’s willing to play for his hometown fans at a moment’s notice. Guess they don’t call him “The Boss” for nothing
