Famous Actor Starts Springsteen-Inspired Band and Tour is Underway

Multi-talented actor Hank Azaria has started a Bruce Springsteen-inspired band and will perform on a minimal tour.

Hank Azaria is an award-winning actor and comedian whose voice is familiar to fans of “The Simpsons.” He has voiced the characters of Apu, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy and others.

He was the star of the critically acclaimed cable series Brockmire. He won a Primetime Emmy for his performance in Tuesdays with Morrie, a Screen Actor’s Guild award for outstanding casting for the film “The Birdcage”, Primetime Emmys for his voice work on “The Simpsons” and a nomination for a Tony Award. He has appeared in countless television series and films in comedic and dramatic roles.

What makes this tribute band so special is the voice and mannerisms that Azaria developed to imitate Bruce. Azaria said in a recent statement announcing the group’s creation that he had been working on his impression of Bruce since he was 15 years old.

Hank Azaria and The EZ Street Band will perform Bruce’s hits and said on Instagram that he has locked down Bruce’s speaking voice and is working hard on the singing and stage mannerisms of one of the most popular artists in the world. New Jersey.

Hank Azaria and the EZ Street Band will perform August 1 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York’s West Village, with additional dates at New Jersey venues to be announced.

If Azaria’s voice, mannerisms and singing are anything like the performances he gives on television, in film and on stage, there may be a serious Bruce Springsteen tribute band added to the mix.

I haven’t attended a performance of the group, but I’m already a fan! Thanks to nj.com for some of the content in this article.
