The Godfather of “the New Jersey Sound,” Southside Johnny leads the Asbury Jukes band, a Jersey Shore musical group. They have been recording albums since 1976 and are closely associated with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
“More than 100 musicians can claim to have been members of the Asbury Jukes. In fact, John’s long-time friend Jon Bon Jovi was a member of the Jukes and toured with the band in 1989,” according to an archived version of a page on the band’s website.
Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have become a staple in the New Jersey music scene having released twelve studio albums since 1976 and featuring a rotating group of members such as Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Steve Van Zandt.
