“Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes are one of New Jersey’s most iconic rock acts and a favorite of so many fans around the world,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “We are excited to once again present them live and we are looking forward to an amazing show.”
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have previously performed in Union County, with their last appearance being at Union County’s Musicfest concert in 2011 at Oak Ridge Park in Clark.
Playing a classic blend of searing rock, soul, and blues accompanied by a solid guitar sound and a blistering horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have recorded more than 30 albums and toured all over the world during the past five decades. They are, along with close friend and frequent collaborator Bruce Springsteen, and later, Bon Jovi---the creators of the legendary Jersey Shore sound.
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,” and with Springsteen, “It’s been a Long Time.”
