Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce joins Jersey Shore legends Sonny Kenn & The Wild Ideas on stage at the Monmouth County Fair. Performing with The Starfires in 1965, Sonny Kenn even opened for Jerry Lee Lewis. At the time, however, Kenn was working in a musical instrument store in Red Bank by day, before playing with The Wild Ideas in various Shore bars and clubs at night. Before jumping on stage, Bruce watched events at the County Fair, wearing blue jeans, a flannel shirt, and a CAT baseball cap. Songs performed include "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Land Of 1000 Dances". Not long after this performance, Springsteen wrote and recorded "County Fair", perhaps, in part, inspired by this evening.
