Bruce announced the new line-up for the E Street Band this morning at his official website.

“The expanded lineup for this Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band tour features singers Cindy Mizelle and Curtis King, trombonist Clark Gayton and trumpeter Curt Ramm, all of whom have toured with Bruce Springsteen in the past, along with newcomer Barry Danielian on trumpet. E Street stalwart Eddie Manion and first time tour member Jake Clemons will share the saxophone role,” the announcement read.

One of Jake’s earliest performances was in 1992 as part of the inaugural celebration for President Clinton. At age 18, he toured with the first time as a member of the band The Israelites.

Then in his early 20s he scored a gig hosting the TV show 1Cubed on ABC Family. It ran for five seasons.

Jake has played sax for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chad Hugo for Neptunes and R&B Gospel singer Kirk Franklin.

Bruce Springsteen will start his ‘Wrecking Ball’ tour on March 18 in Atlanta. The week before he will be the keynote speaker at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
