Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes grew out of the mid-70’s during the Jersey Shore music scene following on the heels of Bruce Springsteen. Their first 3 albums were hits and they featured songs written by Steven Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen himself. Southside Johnny’s signature song, “I Don’t Want To Go Home,” was born during this time period. Unfortunately, luck was not going their way. Being in the shadows of Bruce Springsteen, they never quite garnered the commercial success they were looking for and, in 1979, they were dropped by their record company. This also meant they lost Van Zandt. Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes did not let this slow them down as they continued to release new albums, even a live album. They were still unable to garner the success they needed to keep going, even though Rolling Stone Magazine voted their 1982 album, Hearts of Stone among the Top 100 albums of the 70’s and 80’s. In 1988, Southside Johnny released his solo record Slow Dance which contained ballads and love songs and the most political song of his career, “Little Calcutta.”
Better Days the 1991 album release re-launched their recording career. Once again, they featured production by Van Zandt and songs by Springsteen, but this time they also had vocal performances by Van Zandt, Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. The Jukes were gaining new energy for a worldwide tour when all of a sudden; their luck went sour again. The record label they were on went bankrupt while the tour was still rolling. Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes did manage to get some good luck in the ‘90’s. They performed the theme song for the 1990’s sitcom “Dave’s World.”
After a decade without a recording contract, Southside Johnny founded his own record label, Leroy Records, in 2001. He began releasing and distributing his new records under his control. Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes continue to perform today, even selling out venues, while still releasing new albums. In 2010 The Juke’s released the album Pills and Ammo with the majority of the songs primarily written by their keyboard player Jeff Kazee. They also recorded a live performance in 2011 for Stevie Van Zandt’s album, Men Without Women.
