$45, $39, $35
As much a fixture of the Jersey bar-band scene as longtime buddy Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny is one of those artists who always seems to be locally playing one place or another throughout the calendar year. This of course makes Southside Johnny and his Asbury Jukes one of the music industry’s tightest live acts highlighted by the fact that this crew has a deep and extensive canon to pull from.
