"What a thrill it was to have Bruce Springsteen perform here with us tonight! Well it might not of looked exactly like Bruce, but it sure did sound exactly like him! Lets hear it for Tramps Like Us!"
- Kevin Cronin - lead vocalist & guitarist for REO Speedwagon - 8/16/12 — at Provident Bank Park, NY

"Up close, Mark Salore doesn't look much like Bruce Springsteen. Except, perhaps, for the stud in his left ear and a wispy bit of beard. But an astonishing transformation takes place, though, when he gets onstage with his tribute band, Tramps Like Us. He punches out the opening riff to "Cadillac Ranch," the group kicks in behind him, the crowd erupts in war cries and air guitar riffs, and it suddenly seems as if Bruce and the E Street Band have commandeered the Vintage Bar in White Plains."

Elizabeth Vicentelli from NY Newsday writes in a featured article on the band- "You would have to be completely allergic to Springsteen to not be won over by the rambunctious atmosphere. Even this reporter, usually impervious to the 'E' Street band's particular brand of magic, started humming along. Tramps Like Us brought Springsteen back to a human scale"

"The #1 Springsteen Tribute Band In The Land" - Matt Zako

Most tribute bands boast that they look and act like the bands they cover, and there are more than a few Bruce Springsteen tribute bands that do just that. But for Tramps Like Us, paying tribute to the Boss and the "E" Street Band has nothing to do with appearances - it's all about the music. Luckily for modern-day Springsteen fans, Tramps Like Us captures some of that magic and energy in its own performances.
- By Jess Kamen / - The Philadelphia Inquirer

No look alike's, impersonators, costumes or gimmicks here... Just a remarkable musical tribute to Springsteen & his "E" Street Band. Great musicianship and a great sound. I've seen several Springsteen tribute bands over the years, all of which seem to focus more on looking, and acting like Springsteen and his band, rather than performing the music as Springsteen and his band would. This is the best sounding Springsteen tribute band of the bunch. If you're a Springsteen fan, like myself, go check out Tramps Like Us... you won't be disappointed.
- Scott Hirsch / Director of Development - VH-1

"Simply put, the best Springsteen cover band! For tribute bands, this is as good as it gets. If you like Springsteen, you'll love Tramps Like Us. Don’t miss this band if you have a chance to see them.
