The E Street band
On October 16 New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom hosted a gala affair paying tribute to E Street Band guitarist/actor/garage rock champion/activist Little Steven Van Zandt. Elvis Costello, Southside Johnny and Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello were all on the bill. Bruce Springsteen was not… but very few people were surprised (although everyone in the room was thrilled) when he showed up to present his consigliere with Little Kids Rock’s Big Man Of The Year Award.
This week, E Street Band guitarist Little Steven Van Zandt will be honored by Little Kids Rock with their annual “Big Man Of The Year” award. The nonprofit organization, which works to restore and revitalize music education in disadvantaged public schools, has honored Clarence Clemons, Bernie Williams and Lady Gaga in the past.
The E Street Band’s guitarist will receive the “Big Man Of The Year” award, named after his late bandmate Clarence Clemons, at Little Kids Rock’s annual “Right 2 Rock” event on October 16th at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

They will complete the cycle on Labor Day weekend at the home of the Phillies, capping off what they started back in 1973.
