In a business where success is defined as getting a second single; and longevity measured in nano-seconds; just surviving for twenty-five plus years is a rare accomplishment. But Johnny and the Jukes have not just survived,they have flourished. Seventeen albums; thousands of live performances around the globe; a legion of dedicated and enthusiastic fans; dozens of classic songs; a record-Hearts of Stone-that Billboard called one of the top 100 albums of the 70's and 80's, and a new record, GOING TO JUKESVILLE, that many are saying is "even better", and "the best yet".
To Johnny, it's just what he does. "I grew up on music. We listened to Billie Holiday, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters and Big Joe Turner. My parents loved music, the louder the better." Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, Southside's fascination for the club scene started early. "My father played in bands for years, and my mother actually went into labor with me at some seedy New Jersey club. I guess some things were just meant to be." Singing and playing in a number of blues and R&B bands at what is now the legendary Upstage Club, often joined by pals Bruce Springsteen, "Miami Steve" Van Zandt, and Garry Tallent, Johnny worked at making "meant to be" into "is". It wasn't easy. "We played for years on the shore, but it wasn't until Bruce hit with "Born to Run" that these A&R guys would drive to Asbury Park to see what was happening."
