Inspired by the response Boggia has received from his ukulele version of "Thunder Road", he has crafted uke arrangements of other Springsteen classics to present in Bruce Off Broadway, Jim's loving tribute to the Bruce Springsteen songbook, performed on ukulele.
This special summer show brings Jim and his huge repertoire of both original and classic rock and pop covers back to the Musical Lairs stage. Get your reservations as soon as the email goes out. This show is always a sell-out!
