1972-07-05 Grant's Cinema III Theater, Red Bank, NJ

One show, 5:00pm, with The Bruce Springsteen Band (listed in the Red Bank Register as the Bruce Springsteen Blues Band) the only artist on the bill, a benefit for 1972 Presidential candidate George McGovern. It is not known how long Bruce's performance lasted but the $3.00 donation also included a ticket to see the evening movie, Frogs, starring Ray Milland. The money raised from this event was used to keep the McGovern office in Shrewsbury running and to send delegates to the Democratic convention. Brucebase reader Larry comments: "I was going through a friend's Bruce collection, trying to date his early memorabilia and I found this handmade poster, which came from the Theater's Box Office."
