April 29 / Asbury Park, NJ / The Stone Pony
After a lengthy afternoon soundcheck at the Pony, Bruce Springsteen took the stage in the evening with Bobby Bandiera and his band for another private benefit for the Ranney School. The usual 1-2 song soundcheck was replaced with a 3+ hour rehearsal, beginning at 2:00. Some band members were cramming up until showtime -- last-minute setlist changes had Eddie Manion heading out to his car to retrieve sheet music from his trunk. As for the show itself, Patti Scialfa and Southside Johnny guested once again, and previous school benefits provided a good model, though this year's was weighted away from covers towards Springsteen's own material. From the former category, a major highlight was "Time is on My Side," handled largely by Patti but with Bruce taking the spoken middle part; Southside Johnny led a medley of "Can I Get a Witness" and "Everybody Needs Someone to Love." Originals included "Man's Job" and a bluesy "Pink Cadillac" driven by "Peter Gunn"-style horns. School parents paid $3,000 per couple for this intimate rave-up, receiving a promise at the end of the night that the tradition would continue: "We'll see ya next year!"
