Music fans at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park. NJ got a once more common surprise last Saturday night (7/18): a guest set by the Bard of Asbury. Bruce Springsteen dropped in on a show by his friends Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers to play 15 songs.

Associated Press reports that Springsteen showed up onstage 20 minutes into the set by the Pittsburgh-based band that are the stylistic blue-collar rock cousins to Bruce and the E Streeters and launched into “Never Be Enough Time.” It follows his joining Brian Wilson for two songs at a concert earlier this month. In past decades such Springsteen sit-ins at music clubs along the Jersey shore were a somewhat regular thing.

By the end of his nearly two-hour set that ended with “Light of Day” word had spread and a crowd had gathered outside the at-capacity club to cheer the Boss on.

In related Springsteen home state news, New Jersey governor and presidential aspirant Chris Christie, known as a rabid Bruce fan who claims to have seen him 126 times, seems to have switched musical parties. At the announcement event for his campaign for the GOP nomination, the music played was by the Garden State’s other classic rock superstar Jon Bon Jovi.
