Hollywood, Fla. (April 24, 2017) – The Godfather of “the New Jersey Sound,” Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes will perform at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 28, 2017, at 10 a.m. Fans will have access to presale tickets beginning Thursday, April 27, 2017, at 10 a.m. through Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
The iconic Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes released the much anticipated “Soultime!” their first new studio CD of all original material in five years, on Leroy Records in September 2015.
Shortly after its release, “Soultime!” received high praise from music critics, with Music Riot in the UK proclaiming “The more you listen to it the more you realize it is a work of genius. Johnny’s voice is sublime and would melt a heart of stone.”
While critics in the U.S. also raved – “I’ve been waiting for Southside Johnny to make this album for almost 40 years. It’s the best record of his entire career. If you really have soul, no further explanation necessary” said Dave Marsh, SiriusXM Radio’s E Street Channel Host.
“Soul music is not a genre, it is a way of life. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes keep the classic R&B clock spinning hot and forward on ‘Soultime!,’ one of their best records since they first burst out of that New Jersey night,” praised veteran music writer David Fricke.
The CD was written and produced by Jeff Kazee and John Lyon, and was recorded at Lakehouse Recording Studios in the Jukes’ hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey. “Soultime!” celebrates the transformative power of ‘70s soul music and represents a return to – as Southside sings – “just letting the music take us away.” The new disc is available on iTunes, Amazon, at www.southsidejohnny.com and at Asbury Jukes live shows.
“Soultime!” features Southside Johnny on vocals and harmonica, Jeff Kazee on keyboards and vocals, Glenn Alexander on guitar, bassist John Conte, Chris Anderson on trumpet, John Isley on saxophone, Neal Pawley on trombone and drummer Tom Seguso.
New Jersey’s own Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes released their last CD, the live “Men Without Women: Live 7-2-11,” also on Leroy Records, in 2012, which was recorded live on July 2, 2011 at the Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes performance with Little Steven Van Zandt at The Stone Pony. That disc features live versions of the songs from the “Little Steven” and the “Disciples of Soul” 1994 album of the same name, along with three Asbury Jukes bonus tracks.
With a decades-long successful career, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes delivered their soul-searing brand of raucous blues and R&B, recorded more than 20 albums and became known for huge hits, which they will perform at Hard Rock Live, including “I Don’t Want To Go Home,” “Love On The Wrong Side Of Town,” “The Fever,” “This Time It’s For Real” and “Got To Get You Off My Mind.”
