The Marcus King Band used the opportunity of performing in Bruce Springsteen’s home base of Asbury Park to cover The Boss’ signature song, “Born To Run.” King and company were aided by E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons during their set on Sunday at the second annual Sea.Hear.Now Festival.

The MKB played an 11-song set on the beach in Asbury Park as part of a day that also included performances from the Dave Matthews Band, Dispatch, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Dropkick Murphys, Jade Bird, The B-52s, Steel Pulse and more. Jake Clemons emerged in the middle of The Marcus King Band’s performance to add to a cover of Gene McDaniels’ “Compared To What.” The current E Street Band saxophonist and nephew of the late Clarence Clemons came back out to help The MKB close out their set with “Born To Run.” Bruce Springsteen originally released “Born To Run” as the title track to his third album in 1975.
