ROCHESTER - Legendary rockers Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes will grace the stage at the Rochester Opera House on Saturday, March 7.

Southside's contemporaries, friend Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi, all grew from the Jersey Shore music scene. Ardent Southside fan Bon Jovi once said, "I've always wanted to be a Juke...and I still do!"

Springsteen as well as several other E Streeters have played with the band.

Southside's first three albums I Don't Want To Go Home, This Time It's For Real and Hearts of Stone were produced by band co-founder Steven Van Zandt (E Street Band, The Sopranos) and feature songs written by Van Zandt and Springsteen. Southside and the Jukes have produced 30 albums and have performed their classic blend of R&B and rock thousands of times around the globe.

The band, which has been performing since the 1970s, is renowned for its solid brass section and has a star-studded alumnus similar to Tower of Power.
