Info & Setlist | Venue

A rare performance by Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom, a short-lived (summer-fall 1970) four-piece band consisting of Steve Van Zandt ("Funky Dusty"), Garry Tallent, "Southside" Johnny Lyon and drummer Bobby Williams ("The Soul Broom"). Apparently, Springsteen was in attendance and joined in a late evening jam. At this point in mid-1970, both Tallent and Williams were full-time members of Glory Road (along with David Sancious and Billy Chinnock), Van Zandt was a member of Steel Mill and Southside was a free agent, having recently left his former band Maelstrom. The Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom side-project was a catalyst for what became The Big Bad Bobby Williams Band in late 1970 and The Sundance Blues Band in spring 1971. "Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom" were singer Jeannie Clark's backing band at the infamous Clearwater gig on September 11.
