Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with The Bruce Springsteen Band the sole act on the bill. A typical Bruce Springsteen Band gig at this club consisted of four 40 minute sets separated by healthy intermissions (2½ hrs total playing time). This was the final-ever Bruce Springsteen Band gig at The Student Prince. Just a day or two following this show Springsteen drove out to California to visit his parents in San Mateo. Bruce drove with Tinker West, who had business matters to attend to and family to visit in California as well. At the time of his departure, Bruce was unsure if he was going to stay in California for several months or only for several weeks. This created an up-in-the-air future for all the other band members. Further gigs were performed at The Student Prince (without Springsteen) on December 24, 25 and 26 (billed as The Sundance Blues Band) and on December 31 (billed as 'Blue Midnight formally Sundance Blues'). As it turned out Springsteen only remained in California for several weeks. Bruce has implied that he performed some solo acoustic gigs while in California, but no specific details or eyewitness accounts have yet emerged. Bruce returned to New Jersey in late January 1972. By this stage, however, both Garry Tallent and David Sancious had moved to Richmond, both having accepted session players jobs at Alpha Sound Studios. The Bruce Springsteen Band was rekindled and due to Sancious-Tallent commitments at Alpha Studios many of the group's February-March 1972 gigs were booked in the Richmond area.
