Description

The B Street Band, originally known as Backstreets, was formed in Asbury Park, New Jersey in May of 1980 by musicians Will Forte and the late Bob Chipak. Since that time, the top drawing band has performed from Maine to the Bahamas for well over 3 million people.

The B Street Band has performed with legendary E Street Band members Clarence Clemons, Max Weinberg, and Vinnie “Mad Dog” Lopez. They have been invited to play on the Conan O’Brien Show and Howard Stern.

Over the last 28 years, the band has been estimated to have played in over 800 different nightclubs and 200 colleges through 20 different states and is now considered to be the longest running tribute band in the world.
