About Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes were officially formed in 1975. The band would be distilled from New Jersey's music scene that included Bruce Springsteen and "Miami" Steve Van Zandt. The band would be founded by "Southside" Johnny Lyon and Van Zandt as the house band of a new club called The Stone Pony. Although Van Zandt would join Springsteen's E Street Band, he produced much of the Jukes' early repertoire, including the four-song demo that would get the group signed to Epic Records. In the band's early years, Van Zandt and Springsteen would write the majority of the Jukes' material. In 1979, Billy Rush would take over as the main writer when Van Zandt left to dedicate himself to the E Street Band. Rush was replaced in 1985 by Bobby Bandiera.

In its decades-long history, the legendary band has seen over fifty performers, including greats like Max Weinburg, Clarence Clemons, and Jon Bon Jovi. The band's current lineup consists of Johnny Lyon on lead vocals and harmonica, Glenn Alexander on guitar, Chris Anderson on trumpet, John Conte on bass, John Isley on saxophone, Jeff Kazee on piano, Neal Pawley on trombone, and Tom Seguso on drums. Many of the current members are well-established musicians in their own right. Alexander has his own musical project GA3 that includes Seguso. He has taught at Wichita State University and New York's New School and is currently the head of the jazz studies program at Sarah Lawrence College. Anderson helped form the New York Horns. Conte's band the Crown Jewels would be hailed as one of the best unsigned bands of 1998 by Musician Magazine. Kazee is head of kazeedigs, a group that plays whatever is popular on Kazee's iPod. Pawley is one half of the swinging jazz/electro duo 11 Acorn Lane. A number of these members have played with one or more of Springsteen, Bon Jovi and the Allman Brothers.


Previous Hits

With several albums on the Billboard 200 under their belts, the Jukes are no strangers to fame. Their first two albums, I Don't Want to Go Home (1976) and This Time It's for Real (1977) would find reasonable commercial success. This Time It's for Real and their next album, Hearts of Stone (1978), would have the highest critical success on Allmusic, both earning 4.5 out of five stars. Though less commercially successful than their previous albums, the atmospheric and boisterous Hearts of Stone would mark the band's true departure from Springsteen's influence.

The Jukes would continue to develop artistically and technically, eventually producing their best-loved singles. "I'm So Anxious" (1979), "Get Your Body on the Job" (1983), and "Walk Away Renee" (1986) would all make their mark on the Billboard charts.

Recently, the Jukes' album Pills and Ammo (2010) would be critically acclaimed as a demonstration of the band's unfettered creativity (it was released on Lyons' own Leroy label) and a testament to their decades of talent.


Trivia

The Jukes would have a noteworthy cameo in the 1977 movie "Between The Lines." They would appear as themselves and perform the songs "Sweeter Than Honey" and "Having A Party."
