ASBURY PARK - Some Bruce Springsteen fans got a great surprise Saturday night when the musician jumped on stage at a bar in Asbury Park.

The Boss performed an impromptu 15 song set that lasted two hours at the Wonder Bar.

He joined Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers  as he rocked out to some favorites like "Darkness on the Edge of Town," "Atlantic City," and "The Promised Land."

The New Jersey native has been known to do drop-in sets in Asbury Park from time to time, but he hasn't done one in a few years.
