Quincy Mumford and The Reason Why got the surprise of a lifetime when Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa waltz into their soundcheck.
Mumford and the band were performing a soundcheck at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey on Friday. The iconic venue is famous for launching the careers of Springsteen and Bon Jovi.
Springsteen and Scialfa casually strolled into the soundcheck and began to dance. It took Mumford a moment to recognize who had crashed their prep session, but his reaction was priceless. Springsteen and Mumford embrace and shared some brief words.
“It was really cool,” Mumford told USA Today (h/t Rolling Stone). “Patti and Bruce came up to me and said some really nice things to me about my voice. We talked about my pedals and what they do. Patti had me give them a little demo and sing for them.”
Scialfa shared this photo of the lovely couple on Instagram.
“A little blurry, but so were we — stopped in the Stone Pony around 5:30 while Quincy Mumford and the Reason Why were doing a soundcheck,” she wrote. “Two shots of tequila and decided to take a slow dance.”
