He's performed with some of the biggest names in music, from Springsteen, to Bon Jovi and Southside Johnny, and today, Bobby Bandiera made a surprise appearance at Big Joe Henry's live broadcast at the Celtic Cottage!

Before we kicked off the 2016 Belmar St. Patrick's Day Parade, the crowd at the Celtic Cottage got to see one of New Jersey's premiere musicians perform live.

Prior to playing a couple songs for the crowd, Big Joe spoke with Bobby for a few minutes and discussed some of the amazing events Bandiera has performed at over the years. Bobby also spoke about some of the notable musicians he has performed with over the years as well. One event in particular, as Bobby recalled, came with a surprise performance from a former president who jumped on stage with them.

Check out the interview below.

What would any performance be at the Celtic Cottage during the Belmar St. Patrick's Day parade without an Irish song mixed in, right? Bobby not only performed the classic Irish song "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," but he turned it into a sing-a-long with the crowd at the bar! See the footage below.

Before Bobby Bandiera wrapped up, he wanted to thank all those amazing musicians he has performed with over the years and sang a very special song for them and for the crowd at the live broadcast. Watch below as he sings the classic hit "Talk to Me."
