The Stone Pony, located in the Jersey seaside town of Asbury Park, is one of the most recognized small venues in the world. Many artists have honed their skills here, including Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen.

The Boss has played here nearly 90 times, but except for the occasional children's school fund-raiser, he usually just sits in with another band. Despite public perception to the contrary, Springsteen already had two albums completed when The Stone Pony opened in 1974.

Professional wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow used to work as a bouncer at the Stone Pony before he toured the wrestling circuit.
