Past Event

Tone, Featuring David Sancious and Ernest ‘Boom’ Carter, Former Members of Springsteen’s E Street Band, and Gerald Carboy

The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University will present An Evening with Tone, featuring David Sancious, Ernest “Boom” Carter, and Gerald Carboy, hosted by Bob Santelli, Founding Executive Director of the Grammy Museum, on Sunday, October 6, at 7 p.m. in the Pollak Theater on the university campus.

The event is free and open to the public.

In 1974 E Street Band keyboards player Sancious and drummer Carter left the group and teamed with Carboy, a Jersey Shore bass player, to form the jazz-fusion band Tone. Acclaimed by critics, Tone’s music expanded the parameters of fusion and featured the extraordinary keyboard work of Sancious. The group’s album, Transformation: The Speed of Love, is an acknowledged fusion classic.

“Tone was one of the great jazz bands from the Jersey Shore,” said Santelli, author of Greetings from E Street: The Story of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. “Critics loved the band, but during the mid-1970’s hype surrounding the release of Born to Run, Tone didn’t get the attention it deserved from Springsteen fans.”

Santelli will interview the musicians about Tone, their years in the Jersey Shore music scene, and the role Sancious and Carter played in the early days of the E Street Band. The night will conclude with a rare performance by the trio.

Additionally, authors Barry Schneier and Chris Phillips will be on site to sign their book, Bruce Springsteen: Rock and Roll Future, published earlier this year. The book features Schneier’s photographs from the legendary performance of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Harvard Square Theatre in 1974. It was that show that was reviewed by future manager Jon Landau, who wrote, “I saw rock and roll future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.” The band line-up for that Boston show included Sancious and Carter.
