Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes were the second band after Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band to emerge from the New Jersey shore scene, and though they carried over a significant influence (and some key personnel) from their predecessors, they were a more generic white R&B horn band in the Memphis Stax Records tradition. The group was organized in 1974 by singer John Lyon (b. December 4, 1948, Neptune, NJ) and guitarist/songwriter "Miami" Steve Van Zandt (b. November 22, 1950, Boston). Van Zandt decamped for the E Street Band in 1975, but he continued to direct the Jukes, managing them, writing their songs, and producing their records. The original Jukes lineup was: Billy Rush (b. August 26, 1952) (guitar); Kevin Kavanaugh (b. August 27, 1951) (keyboards); Al Berger (b. November 8, 1949) (bass); Kenny Pentifallo (b. December 30, 1940) (drums); Carlo Novi (b. August 7, 1949, Mexico City) (tenor sax); Eddie Manion (b. February 28, 1952) (baritone sax); Tony Palligrosi (b. May 9, 1954) (trumpet); Ricky Gazda (b. June 18, 1952) (trumpet); and Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg (trombone). The group signed to Epic Records and released I Don't Want to Go Home (1976), which featured songwriting by Springsteen and cameos by Ronnie Spector and Lee Dorsey. This Time It's for Real (1977) contained more Springsteen tunes and appearances by the Coasters, the Drifters, and the Five Satins. Critical consensus said that the third album, Hearts of Stone (1978), was the Jukes' peak, but they failed to break through to mass success and were dropped by Epic. Moving to Mercury, they made The Jukes (1979), on which all songwriting was handled by Lyon and Rush, and followed with Love Is a Sacrifice (1980) and the live double-LP Reach Up and Touch the Sky (1981). Moving to the Atlantic Records subsidiary Mirage, they worked with producer Nile Rodgers on the uncharacteristic Trash It Up! (1983), then returned to form on In the Heat (1984). The group had suffered personnel shifts all along, but the departure of Billy Rush left Lyon to write much of At Least We Got Shoes (1986), after which he made a "solo" album, Slow Dance (1988). Southside and the Jukes reunited with Springsteen and Van Zandt for Better Days (1991). After a nearly ten year hiatus from the studio, Lyon started his own label, Leroy Records, and released Messin' with the Blues in 2000. Going to Jukesville followed in 2004. Grapefruit Moon: The Songs of Tom Waits appeared in 2008. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

In the early 80's Mark Pender from the jukes would play guest appearances with a rytham and blues and soul band in a small place called the Cellar Door in north jersey. The one night we got there early and see a reserved table in front and after coming out of the bathroom find out Southside is sitting next to us. The place got packed when word got out and it rocked all night. We got to talk to him and his wife all night. He was renting a house in town but never came back to the club only Mark.

Hey Johnny we could use some of your love down here in Palm Coast Fl. Miss seeing you at the Jersey Shore.

Same here. I just same him a short while back in RI with the Jukes. Great pipes, better than 20-30 years ago. Well worth catching if he tours again

I've lost track of how many times I've seen SSJ; I love the fact that no two concerts are the same. Last week in Tarrytown proved he still has it at the age of 63. Rock on, Southside!

I would hope that there is a tribute to Clarence tomorrow night. Love Southside Johnny music. Have seen him twice.

Can't wait for Southside's return performance this Saturday at the Ocean City Music Pier . It's been nearly 2 years since he last rocked the Ocean City New Jersey boardwalk.

We first heard of Southside from good ol' Kid (why wait for the record?) Leo here On WMMS. Fell in love with "I don't want to go home" and "the Fever" before it had even been released. Have seen him many times in concert - next to Bruce, He is one of the best on stage... saw him at the old Painesville Agora with Mitch Ryder and the Detroit wheels as their opening act - The boo'd Ryder offstage but Southside more than made up for it.. Terrific Concert and Terrific Memories... We Love Ya Southside

The Bio failed to mention what a big impact Bob Bandiera - who replaced Billy Rush - has had and continues to have on the band.

The Shore, the houses and the beer. Great way to spend your late teens and early twenties.

Absolutely great live band. Older albums "Hearts of Stone" and newer ones like "Messin with the Blues" are well worth finding.

Saw them for about the 20th time this past Summer at the Jersey Shore, after moving away from Jersey 5 years ago. It WAS AWESOME, and Southside was in Great form even after all these years. Brought me back and did my Soul So Much Good...

So many nights at the shore, listening to this band jam some kick a** tunes.... brings me back home....

Best bar band in the world. You only have to see them live once to understand, preferably on a local boardwalk bar.

Does anyone know what Billy Rush did after he left the Jukes? I can't find anything about him and he wrote a lot of their songs on the Jukes and Love is a Sacrifice albums.

Johnny broke his forarm some years ago and still played on. Made his harmonica a little hard to hold. I also would catch Southside around the end-top of the year. The Miami Horns are magnificent.
