We’re delighted to present a celebration of Bruce Springsteen featuring The She Street Band plus Girls on Film DJs.

Following a series of sold out shows across London, the world’s first and only all-female Bruce Springsteen cover band, The She Street Band, are heading out on their very first tour.

The band is made up of players from the UK, Ireland, Sweden and the United States who formed after bassist Jody Orsborn attended Springsteen’s concert at Wembley in 2016. Walking out of the show in awe after truly cementing her love for The Boss, she recruited a group of like-minded musicians, including Calie Hough (drums), Mara Daniele (guitar), Lynn Roberts (keys), Clare McGrath (glockenspiel), Isabel Lysell (lead guitar) and Yasmin Ogilvie (sax).

Since their sold out debut show at The Moth Club in Hackney, they have gone from strength to strength, while whipping up a buzz throughout the music and lifestyle industries. In addition to already being featured in Time Out, NME, Elle Magazine and Grazia, they count members of Springsteen’s own E Street Band amongst their list of supporters (bassist Garry Tallent was papped wearing The She Street Band merch in Nashville this June) and they also feature on the Latitude Festival line-up this summer.

This show-stopping seven-piece promise a night fit for The Boss. Expect to be dancing to all the classic Bruce Springsteen hits like Born To Run, Thunder Road and Dancing in the Dark and a whole heap more… all with a female twist.

‘There is surely only one thing that could make the songs of Bruce Springsteen any better. And that is being covered live by a cool-as-f**k all-female band. Well, ta da! It’s happening’ – Elle Magazine

‘What a show! Springsteen would be proud. These gals can play’ – Greasy Lake
