With a classic blend of hard-core R&B, street-level rock, molten grooves, soulful guitar licks and blistering horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to put their unique stamp on the Jersey Shore sound. The band's career has spanned more than four decades, recording 30-plus albums that have generated a vibrant legacy of classic songs and a large and famously-dedicated fan base.
The band first rose to prominence on the Jersey Shore music scene along with Southside Johnny's legendary contemporaries and friends Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt. Since then, Southside Johnny and his Jukes have continued to deliver their unique brand of soul-searing, raucous blues and R&B to audiences around the globe with popular songs mined from their many albums. Some of their biggest hits include: “I Don’t Want To Go Home,” “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town,” “The Fever,” “This Time It’s For Real,” “Talk To Me” and their definitive fun-time cover of “We’re Having A Party.”
