About the B Street Band
Their claim to fame is being the first band in the world to do a unique tribute to a live performer. Now, the B Street Band says it have paved the way for the estimated 14,000+ tribute bands performing around the world.
They were once known as the "Backstreets" (not to be confused with the Backstreet Boys), and some 5,500 performances and some 34 years and counting, B-Street Band takes pride in being the 'hardest working tribute band on the circuit,' with some 200 shows per year throughout the United States.
No, the B Street Band is not the E Street Band. Still, it's more memorable performances include opening for Bruce Springsteen outside of the old Philadelphia Spectrum for the final four shows at the historic arena before it was torn down. In addition, the band has also performed shows at the likes of MetLife Stadium, the Prudential Center, and the more recently opened Xfinity Live in South Philadelphia (at the sports complex).
You may have seen them play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen" exhibition. Or spotted them performing at President Obama's inauguration in 2009, or at all of the Philadelphia Eagles' home games in 2013. The bottom line is, the B Street Band is known far and wide, and has also performed at hundreds of fundraisers over the years. If you get the chance, grab your B Street Band tickets to see them live!
