In the late 1960's the Upstage Club in Asbury Park was one of the first places Bruce Springsteen began to build up a huge reputation as a guitar wizard. The club was started by Tom and Margaret Potter. The Upstage became a place that allowed the musicians to jam together as late as five a.m. Along with Bruce, "Miami" Steve Van Zandt, "Southside" Johnny Lyon, E Street Band members Danny Federici and Garry W. Tallent, and E Street alumnus "Mad Dog" Vini Lopez were among the others jamming in the club.
