Folks at The Press Room on Saturday evening for the musical fundraiser thrown in the name of the recently departed Tony Strollo and his surviving family were blinded by the light careening off the golden soul man at heart that is Bruce Springsteen, who performed a riveting seven-song set, backed by the Boardwalk institution Boccigalupe & The Bad Boys, that included such E Street Band classics as “Rosalita” and “10th Avenue Freeze Out.”

However, there was another local on display in Quincy Mumford, a Beach Comber-Rock maestro that’s 2011 full-length release, Speak, landed at No. 18 on SIMGE’s Top 27 Albums of the Year list, who soothed the assemblage with a series of acoustic six string-led grooves, including The Boss, who requested to commandeer said guitar while he backed Michael Strollo on stage for a five-song set.

Mumford unveiled a brand new tune titled “For You, For You,” which you can scope out below:

Mumford and his band The Reason Why will take The Saint by storm for three shows in two days this weekend while the outfit records its first live album.

On Friday, March 2nd, the collective will commence recording with an 8 p.m. performance for patrons 18-years of age and older, while Saturday will see the group perform an all ages matinee show at 3 p.m. followed by another 8 p.m. start that night.

3-show passes are available for $30 and single show tickets for $12.  You can purchase those entree stubs here, and if you do so by Thursday a free download of the live album will be awarded to you when it drops.
