Bruce in the USA


Led by Matt Ryan, Bruce in the USA is a talented band featuring some simply brilliant musicians. He’s joined up front by Matthew Sully and Dave McLaurin, with Joey Lunsford, Atticus Finch, Danny Miranda and Jay Nichols rounding out the group. (Danny had a scheduling conflict and wasn't on stage for these performances. Mark Kotaska is the bass player here.)

They deliver a powerful… and quite honestly mesmerizing, exhilarating and uplifting… tribute for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. (This is just my opinion, but -- having seen Matt lead this band on several different nights and several different stages -- having heard Dave tear through the phenomenal sax of “Jungleland” -- having seen Sully and Atticus and Joey and Danny and Jay -- it’s hard for me to believe there is another band out there delivering a tribute even remotely close to this. These guys are awesome.)

I would dare to say that the challenge of performing what can best be described as legendary material… some would use adjectives like historic and even sacred… is one of the strengths and motivations for this band. They are quite serious about what they do… and, focusing on some of the most important and well-known material of the past fifty years, they do it very well.

The pictures in this gallery were taken in August and September of 2010.
