Rare Castiles Poster

Before the E Street Band, the Bruce Springsteen Band, Steel Mill and some lesser-known bands in which Springsteen had performed, there was the Castiles. The Castiles were a Freehold-based rock and roll band that was created by rhythm guitarist and lead-singer George Theiss and included a young Bruce Springsteen on lead-guitar and vocals. They formed in 1965 and played various local coffee houses, parties, social clubs, gyms and other assorted small venues before eventually finding their way to New York City where they played at least thirty shows at the Café Wha? before playing their final show in 1968.
