SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
December 01, 2012 - New York

"There's one thing I've always wanted to do," Southside Johnny confesses, "and that is to sing." And he has been doing just that for over a third of a century. In a business where success is defined as getting a second single and longevity measured in nano-seconds, just surviving for more than 30 years is a rare accomplishment. But Johnny and the Jukes have not just survived - they have flourished. They've produced over thirty albums, several EPs and a box set. They've given thousands of live performances around the globe. They boast a legion of dedicated and enthusiastic fans, dozens of classic songs, and a record, Hearts of Stone (1978), that Rolling Stone named one of the Top 100 Albums of the '70s and '80s. In short, they have it all.
