WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The sound of the Jersey Shore comes to The Duncan with more than thirty albums, a box set, thousands of live performances around the globe, dozens of classic songs and a legion of dedicated and enthusiastic fans! Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes commanded the nation's attention in the mid-1970s, emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as his now legendary contemporary and friend Bruce Springsteen. In 1982 Rolling Stone Magazine voted "Hearts of Stone" among the top 100 albums of the 1970s and 1980s. With their classic blend of hard-core R&B and street-level rock, molten grooves, soulful guitar licks and blistering horn section, Johnny and his Jukes continue to put their unique stamp on the Jersey Shore sound, while recalling the glory years of Otis Redding and similar Stax Records titans. The Steve Van Zandt-written "I Don't Want To Go Home" became Southside's signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.
