See New Jersey's own Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes live in concert for their State Theatre debut!
Loaded with the driving sound of the legendary Jukes horn section, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes expound their signature Jersey Shore sound with their high-energy shows and no-holds-barred songs including “I Don’t Wanna Go Home,” “Havin’ a Party,” “Talk to Me,” and “This Time It’s For Real.”
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s, emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as his now legendary contemporary and friend Bruce Springsteen. Southside’s first three albums, I Don’t Want To Go Home, This Time It’s for Real, and Hearts of Stone, were produced by band co-founder Steven Van Zandt (E Street Band, The Sopranos), and largely featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. The Van Zandt-written “I Don’t Want To Go Home” became Southside’s signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.
