About the venue:

The Great Northern Bar, a 200-capacity venue, has been serving up old-fashioned, homegrown, all-purpose rock n' roll for too long to admit. Always believing in local talent, the Northern has been getting ‘em sweaty and wild- eyed on weekends with the best of them. There was one special night in August of 1996, when Bruce Springsteen jumped on stage with the band called “The Fanatics.” Bruce was in town for the wedding of his sound engineer, Toby Scott. He entered the bar late on a Friday night, and after a few taunts from the crowd, jumped on stage, grabbed Marc Moriva’s guitar, and launched into a hot version of Mustang Sally. The night manager claimed the hardest thing he ever had to do was tell Bruce he had to stop because it was closing time. USA Today thought it newsworthy enough to run a story, and we got calls from all across the nation, wondering how often the Boss played at the Northern.
