Gotham Playboys, The

The Gotham Playboys was New York City based bluegrass/roots band. Springsteen's first involvement with the band was in September 1997, when they performed at his birthday party in Colts Neck. Bruce had heard about the band from Soozie Tyrell, who occasionally played live gigs with them. Bruce allegedly joined in on some songs during the party. A few weeks later, Springsteen would hire several members of the group (Jeremy Chatzky, Sam Bardfeld, Larry Eagle, Mark Clifford, and Charles Giordano) to back him during a November 2nd 1997 recording session at Bruce's home studio undertaken for the purpose of contributing a song for a planned spring 1998 Pete Seeger charity album. This group would eventually become The Sessions Band.
