Bruce Springsteen tribute - a brotherhood of friends, some with ties that date back nearly two decades Tribute
The Rising

The Rising

The Rising is a brotherhood of friends, some with ties that date back nearly two decades. Much like Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, they take the stage more like a gang, than a band. They collectively roll up their sleeves and go to work, night, after night. They were all cut from the worn denim of blue collar towns, and paid musical dues playing dive bars, and juke joints. What you hear is the musical truth. What you see is the embodiment of friendship, and what you feel is the 'spiritual healing", that can only be supplied by a great rock n roll band.
