Rhythm and blues are rolling into Philadelphia when Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes bring their signature Jersey Shore sound to The Event Center!
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. The group was Organized by singer John Lyon, guitarist/songwriter Steve Van Zandt and Richie Rosenberg. The band is well known for high-energy shows and no-holds-barred songs, including “I Don’t Wanna Go Home,” “Havin’ a Party,” “The Fever,” “Talk to Me,” “Trapped Again,” and “This Time It’s For Real.”
In an industry where success can be measured by getting a second single, surviving for 30 plus years is a rare accomplishment. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have survived and flourished, releasing more than 30 albums, several EP’s and a box set, thousands of live performances worldwide, and a release named by Rolling Stone as one of the “top 100 albums of the ‘70s and ‘80s.” With the driving sound of the legendary Jukes horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to expand their signature Jersey Shore sound for audiences everywhere.
September 24th at 8PM at the Rivers Casino Philadelphia Event Center. A full bar will be available. Free parking on-site.
