Info & Setlist | Venue

Bruce and Nils Lofgren sit and listen to a few songs by the New Orleans Blues Department, a loose collection of local musicians. After the first set guitarist/vocalist Michael Sklar approaches Springsteen and invites him to join the band during the second set. Bruce accepts, and Sklar drives home and returns with a spare Stratocaster and amp. Springsteen then joins the N.O.B.D on Lowell Fulson's "Reconsider Baby". After a break Nils borrows Sklar's guitar for "Boom Boom" and four other unidentified R&B classics. Springsteen returned to the Maple Leaf Bar in 1992 to play with The Iguanas.
