Bruce played a three song set of his own, and guitars in the stellar house band at this venue in another benefit produced by Michael Sansonia last year, a rousing success for all.

Have you ever had the thought, on a wintry Sunday afternoon, "Gee, I wish I could go someplace and hear a legendary folk performer, an award-winning cabaret singer, a couple of Grammy winners, some members of Bruce Springsteen's band, a long-running comedy troupe, a father/son poetry/rap duo, a world-class swing band, several other performers of various styles, AND support a great cause while I'm doing it?" Then, boy, do we have a show for you!
