E Street Band
The E Street Band is an American musical group.
The E Street Band began in October 1972, officially from September 1974. It was inactive between 1989 and 1999, except for a brief reunion in 1995. Its band leader is US rock star Bruce Springsteen . The name of the band arose from the fact that one of the musicians at the time ( David Sancious ; keyboard) grew up on "E Street" in Belmar, New Jersey and the band was occasionally allowed to practice there in their mother's house.
