Best Cover Band - 2009
What's the point of a cover band? Have a good time, hold the room past last call and, above all else, get paid. But as St. Louis' only Bruce Springsteen cover band, Asbury Park never comes across as mercenary, never phones it in, unless it's to dial up the socially conscious joy and sing-along release that's always been the point of a Springsteen show. The band doesn't just play the Boss; the six musicians, including Steve Leftridge on poised lead vocals and veteran Spencer Marquart on the Mighty Max smack, seem to live out the songs onstage, whether covering Darkness on the Edge of Town from start to finish or digging up the deep cuts even Bruce may have forgotten about.
Wonderful pick! Asbury Park keeps me sane in between when I can see The Boss in person! If you haven't checked them out you should!
SERIOUSLY AWESOME!! These guys rock!! Another great local cover band is Ticket to The Beatles. best beatles cover band in the country...and Ive seen so many I can't even count em!
Great pick. These guys are awesome. They put on a super fun show, and they are all terrific musicians.
This is the biggest bunch of fixed crap I have ever seen in my life... No credibility at all what so ever..
