Bruce Springsteen took to the stage last night (Sept. 22) with Jackson Browne for a New Jersey jamfest, just in time to celebrate the Boss’ birthday.

While Springsteen turns 66 years-old today, it was the crowd at the Browne show in Red Bank, NJ that received a pretty awesome gift in the form of a Bruce surprise appearance.

The set began with Browne calling for Teresa Williams, his wife, to come to the stage. “I want Teresa on this song,” he said, orchestrating the big reveal. Then came the introduction of the Boss and they dove into into rendition of “Take It Easy,” the Eagles classic, which Browne co-wrote.

Check out the performance below.

The two have a deep respect for one another and a history together. Springsteen recently contributed to Looking Into You: A Tribute To Jackson Browne, reworking “Linda Paloma,” a song from Browne’s 1976 album The Pretender. “Linda Paloma” was produced by Springsteen’s longtime manager, Jon Landau. And in 2004, Springsteen did the speech when Browne was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Browne’s tour continues Thursday night (Sept. 23) at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ, and runs through November. For more information on tour dates check here.
