John Cafferty And The Beaver Brown band

Formed in 1972 in Narragansett, Rhode Island, USA, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band hit its commercial peak in 1984 with the number 7 single ‘On The Dark Side’, a key track in the film Eddie And The Cruisers. The soundtrack album, also recorded by the group, was a Top 10 hit in 1983. The band comprised Cafferty (guitar/vocals), Pat Lupo (bass), Gary Gramolini (guitar), Robert Cotoia (keyboards), Michael Antunes (saxophone) and Kenny Jo Silva (drums). Initially called Beaver Brown, they worked at clubs along the eastern US circuit for a decade, building a large following among college-age fans. Their first single, ‘Tender Years’/‘Wild Summer Nights’, was a local radio favourite and sold 10, 000 copies as an independent release in 1980. The offer to write and record the music for Eddie And The Cruisers came the following year, and although the film was a box-office failure, the soundtrack sold 175, 000 copies. The band was then offered a contract with Scotti Brothers Records, resulting in the success of the single. Their first album under their own name, Tough All Over, reached US number 40 in 1985. The group subsequently relied primarily on placing its songs in films, and did so in Rocky IV, Cobra and the inevitable Eddie And The Cruisers II. A second album, Roadhouse, under their own name, failed to chart.

in the movie Eddie wanted to make something different, something that no one ever heard before. i think they made a good chose in picking John Cafferty and the beaver brown band for the two movies. i love these guys music!

In the early 80's I made sure I was at Toad's Place in New Haven whenever Beaver Brown (as they were known prior to the movie) was playing. They rocked the place!

One of the Best bands I've ever seen live! I've seen them live at the Stone Pony, Asbury Park, NJ.

Probably the best act (maybe tied with NRBQ) to regularly play world famous Toad's Place in New Haven in the early 80's. Outstanding live show.

I grew up watching Eddie in the cruisers. My mom played it for my brother and I constantly. One of the best movies I have seen. My 3 and 2 year old love the music.

My wife and I saw them at a club called Night Town in Destin, FL back in '84 or '85 when we were stationed at Eglin AFB. I remember John introducing Tunes as the star of stage, screen and HBO! Outrageously good live band.

more from Wikipedia:
-
The group's 1985 follow-up album Tough All Over made the top 50. The title track became their second number-one single on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and C-0I-T-Y also received a fair amount of airplay.

- Another song Voice of America's Sons was the featured theme song on Sylvester Stallone's movie Cobra (and on the soundtrack).

Fair to say the boys had a bit of a career after the movie faded from memory.

Get your facts straight next time!

con't

- The movie did not do well in theaters ... in fact it BOMBED.
- The album was the released as the soundtrack to the movie. It didn't sell at first because NOBODY saw the movie in the theaters. Sales picked up when the movie made it's way to CableTV. People ran out to by the record once they heard the music in the movie.

No doubt any reviewer can formulate their own opinion and critique.

My problem here is that the facts aren't even correct.

- As pointed out already a couple of times below, the missing
tapes were A Season in Hell not The Dark Side
- The Beaver Brown Bank was not a hack bar band. Before the movie, they were considered in many circles as the best unsigned band around. The feeling at the time was that they were passed over because they sounded a bit like Springsteen.

This is so smiler to Springsteen, its scary, feels like an unreleased single of his

Eddie Lives! (and John Dougan, the author of this review, is an idiot). Everyone I show these movies to go nuts for them and the music.

I love this band. I fell in love w/ Eddie & the Cruisers in the 80's along w/ everyone else. My mom would play the movie at least 3 times a week. When she passed I inheritited her VHS copy of it & completely wore it out! I now have it on DVD & have had to buy a copy for my 10 yr old nephew who is just as in love w/ it as I was at his age! GREAT MUSIC!

I don't know about his other music, but On the Dark Side sounds like he used the same background music and rhythm as a a few Springsteen songs, and considering it came out a few years past the first Springsteen albums, it sounds like a complete rip-off. It sounds so good because its just a copy of a Springsteen song.

They really need add the Tough All Over album to the mix - it's better than the first soundtrack. I've seen the band several times between 1984 and 2011, always a solid show. Always thought they were trying to sound more like Bon Jovi than the Boss, but that never stopped reviewers from playing the easy Bruce Lite card.

I totally enjoyed both Part 1 & Part 2 of the movies and all of the music. Unless you really knew what to look for, you'd sware that The Cruisers are actually performing the music. The most pivotal character from both movies was the sax player. The stories actually centered around his death even though he never spoke a word. He is the actual sax player from The Beaver Brown Band! His nickname is "Tunes".

We need more Cafferty! His music made the Movies real! I have all the Cafferty I can find and Both movies...My Wife and I watch them all the time!

I saw Cafferty in concert, he was awesome. He high 5'd me, then held his hand out to me to pull him out into the audience to body surf. This was during the playing of "The Dark Side". Very memorable night.

Gee, I don't think that Dougan ever saw the movie! The name of the missing
tapes was "A Season in Hell" not "The Dark Side"!! If you're gonna review,
get your FACTS STRAIGHT! OH, and Don't forget "EDDIE LIVES"!!
What a sequel! Great Music in BOTH movies courtesy of John Cafferty and
the Beaver Brown Band!!
