For Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes - ‘comfortable’ - has never been a word associated with their brand of raucous, roots-tinged rock and bluesy reverie. The band has flourished with more than thirty albums, releasing twelve studio albums since 1976….Rolling Stone named their early release “Hearts of Stone” as one of the “top 100 albums of the 70s and 80s”….thousands of live performances around the globe, a legion of famously-dedicated and enthusiastic fans, and a vibrant legacy of classic songs that have become "hits" to their worldwide fan base.
Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes perform in front of audiences nationwide, touring non-stop all year long, along with live shows in the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Japan, The Netherlands and Denmark on a regular basis.
“With the Jukes, you’re out there every night leading this great rock n’ roll circus, giving it everything you’ve got” says Southside Johnny Lyon, known as The Godfather of "the New Jersey Sound" and who just this past year was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame by close friend Jon Bon Jovi.
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes emerged from the New Jersey shore scene in 1974, and though they carried over a significant influence (and some key personnel) from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Jukes evolved as more of a white R&B horn band in the Memphis Stax Records tradition. Organized by singer John Lyon, guitarist/songwriter Steve Van Zandt (who decamped for the E Street Band in 1975, but continued to produce, manage, and write songs for the Jukes) and Richie Rosenberg, the band is well known for their high-energy live shows and no-holds-barred songs.
