Reviews on Tramps Like Us:

"Tramps Like Us is The GREATEST Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band In The LAND! I've witnessed them on several occasions and their performances are SECOND TO NONE!"
- Mike Appel
Former Springsteen
Producer & Manage

"If you're a big Bruce fan, you've probably seen tribute bands...
and the BEST of them all is TRAMPS LIKE US" - E Street Radio / SIRIUS XM

"Up close, Mark Salore doesn't look much like Bruce Springsteen. Except, perhaps, for the stud in his left ear and a wispy bit of beard. But an astonishing transformation takes place, though, when he gets onstage with his tribute band, Tramps Like Us. He punches out the opening riff to "Cadillac Ranch," the group kicks in behind him, the crowd erupts in war cries and air guitar riffs, and it suddenly seems as if Bruce and the E Street Band have commandeered the Vintage Bar in White Plains."
- by Peter Gerstenzang
NY Times & Rolling Stone Magazine

"Most tribute bands boast that they look and act like the bands they cover, and there are more than a few Bruce Springsteen tribute bands that do just that. But for Tramps Like Us, paying tribute to the Boss and the "E" Street Band has nothing to do with appearances - it's all about the music. Luckily for modern-day Springsteen fans, Tramps Like Us captures some of that magic and energy in its own performances."
- By Jess Kamen
Philadelphia Inquire

"You would have to be completely allergic to Springsteen to not be won over by the rambunctious atmosphere. Even this reporter, usually impervious to the 'E' Street band's particular brand of magic, started humming along. Tramps Like Us brought Springsteen back to a human scale"
- Elizabeth Vicentelli

Tramps Like Us, who Bruce Springsteen's former producer and manager Mike Appel has called: "The GREATEST Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band In The LAND!" and E Street Radio calls "The BEST of all Springsteen tribute bands" is set to re-create what has already been labeled as another legendary and historic Bruce Springsteen concert in their continuing series of classic Springsteen concert re-creations...

It probably hasn’t happened since 1974 or 1975. Bruce Springsteen opened his Tuesday night concert at MetLife Stadium with 11 songs from ’73 or earlier, including tracks from his first two albums (“Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.” and “The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle”) and classic-rock covers “Summertime Blues” and “Pretty Flamingo.” - North

Stan Goldstein, a Springsteen historian, blogger and author who has attended well over 300 Springsteen concerts from as far back as 1976 writes... One of the best ever shows I've seen. Timed in at four hours and 25 seconds...

People always ask me what's the best show I've ever seen, this will definitely be in contention.
Thank you Bruce and the E Street Band for finding the Fountain of Youth and allowing me to drink from it tonight.
What a set list. You never knew what was coming next. We all were hoping he would break the four-hour mark, and he did, making this his longest show ever in the U.S. and second longest show ever.
A friend, who times shows precisely, was timing it and at the end we were both rooting for Bruce to break the four-hour mark. He did.
From the moment Bruce's guitar tech Kevin Buell said to us about 15 minutes before the show "Great set list!" and after hearing an incredible soundcheck, we had a feeling it was going to be a special night.
"Good evening New Jersey," Bruce said as he took the stage at 8:12 p.m. "Are you ready to gamble with the E Street Band? Tonight we're going to play a lot of things we didn't play the last two nights."

The third night in the Meadowlands was a night of epics, of grandeur, of the E Street Band occupying the cavernous expanse of MetLife Stadium with the full range of their talent. It was also a night of hits, of the big songs you remember singing on the radio, the ones everyone remembers the best. And it would be another one for the record books, with Bruce breaking his own U.S. record yet again, with a show that clocked in at 4:01.

Springsteen and the E Street Band’s third and final show on “The River” tour at MetLife Stadium Tuesday night came in at 4 hours, 1 minute, just one minute over the record he set during Thursday night’s show in the Meadowlands. Springsteen did all three shows without an intermission or extended break, although the 66-year-old did take a quick break for a cold drink offered up by an audience member on Tuesday night, according to Amabile. Springsteen aficionado Tom Cunningham, host of the weekly Bruce Brunch program on 105.7 The Hawk said the concert was “a show that people will be talking about for a long time.”

“He really gave his all to New Jersey, but after all, he did say we challenged the E Street Band, and boy did they meet that challenge,” said Amabile, who was at all three concerts and said the third show was different. “I have never been to a Springsteen show like this. For nearly two hours he played selections primarily from the first two albums. You never knew which direction he was going to take, and that is what made the whole night so exciting.”
According to Amabile, the first 12 songs were all from the ’70s, including a guest appearance by Rickie Lee Jones for “Spirit in the Night.” He then broke out five songs in a row from the 1984 album “Born in the USA.” He then hit some songs from the tour’s namesake album.

“It’s nearly impossible to think that every song for the first hour and a half of the show was written prior to 1974. An hour and a half is an ENTIRE show for some acts, these folks were just getting warmed up,” Cunningham said. “The first 11 songs contained all of side two of “The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle” (including the always sought after “Incident On 57th Street/Rosalita (Come Out Tonight”) pairing. It also featured four in a row from “Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ.” Cunningham said the concert also included a “terrific version of the rare “Secret Garden” and off the hinges covers like “Summertime Blues” and “Pretty Flamingo.”
