Steven Van Zandt and His Wife, Maureen Van Zandt, Were Our Special Guests in 2016
Steven Van Zandt is perhaps best known for being a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band. However, he came into his own and together with his wife, Maureen Van Zandt, he joined us for our throwback to Woodstock in 2016. The pair spent their time talking to the children in our program and helping them through rehearsals to bring back the Age of Aquarius in Lincroft, Brookdale, Middletown, and Red Bank, New Jersey. It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved.

Now in their 70s, the two aren’t showing their age and are still going strong, helping young people realize their dreams in the entertainment industry.
