Quotes & Highlights

Hear Tramps Like Us at their website.
“If you’re a big Bruce fan, you’ve probably seen tribute bands… and the best of them all is Tramps Like Us.” —Sirius XM’s E Street Radio

Description

Tramps Like Us brings more than two decades of road-tested musicianship to the stage – two decades that have won this band the hard-earned distinction of being the planet’s most revered Bruce Springsteen tribute band.

With a repertoire of more than 100 songs, Tramps Like Us is dedicated to enjoying and sharing Springsteen’s music in a live setting. Unlike other “tribute” bands, who attempt to impersonate or emulate their source in every respect, from looks to clothing and gestures, Tramps Like Us concentrates on the music itself. The group captures the Springsteen sound and the true spirit and energy of the songs, delivering them with the passion and conviction of The Boss.

In keeping with the tradition of a typical Springsteen concert, Tramps prides itself on long and intense concerts, often playing three-and-a-half to four-hour shows, at times without a break. Tramps has been able to cover up to 36 songs on any given night.

February 28, 2013: *Winterland Ballroom December 15, 1978*

Tramps Like Us re-creates Springsteen’s legendary December 15, 1978 concert at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom — a three-and-a-half-hour, 30-song marathon.
