SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY AND THE ASBURY JUKES MAKE STATE THEATRE DEBUT!

(New Brunswick, NJ) -- State Theatre presents Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 8pm in 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 Dont Wanna Go Home," "Havin' a Party," Talk to Me," and This Time Its For Real." Tickets range from $35-65.


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. Southsides first three albums, I Dont Want To Go Home, This Time Its 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 Dont Want To Go Home" became Southsides signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.
