YARDLEY BOROUGH >> The B-Street Band, the number one Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band, will perform at Yardley Country Club on Saturday, March 17. The concert includes an Irish dinner buffet to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day starting at 6 p.m. and the live “Bruce Springsteen” tribute show starting at 7 p.m.
Current band member Will Forte formed the B-Street Band in Springsteen’s backyard of Asbury Park in 1980. Since then, the entertaining six-piece group -- known as Backstreets prior to the mid 80s -- has earned the respect and reputation of the music industry. Nearly 5,500 performances and 34 years later, the B-Street Band is still the most renowned tribute band on the circuit, with almost 200 shows per year throughout the country.
Dance or sing along, B-Street delivers the best of Springsteen at every show. Tickets to the buffet dinner and show are $40 with a cash bar. Reservations can be made through March 12 by calling 215-493-4531 ext. 118. Reserve soon because this event is expected to sell out.
Mark your calendars for local rock and roll legends Ernie White and Tom Reock who will perform a free concert at the Yardley Country Club in Alexander’s Pub on March 9 from 6 to 10 p.m. Tom and Ernie’s style can be summed up in one word, “eclectic,” serving up a virtual musical jambalaya combining rock, blues, folk, jazz, R&B and reggae for one wild ride.
In addition to his solo career, Ernie is a sought after singer, songwriter, producer and studio musician. He has produced and performed songs for network television, written for artists such as Richie Sambora and Bon Jovi, and has sung on a major motion picture release. Keyboard player/vocalist Tom Reock fronted the jazz-rock-funk band, Down To Earth, and is a staple on the local club scene. In addition to releasing two national CDs on his own Hug-A-Tree label, Tom also owns Squirrel Ranch Recording Studio in Hamilton, N.J. The performance is free and open to the public.
