Southside Johnny first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s as the second act to emerge from the Jersey Shore music scene and be considered part of the Jersey Shore sound, following Bruce Springsteen. Southside's first three albums, I Don't Want To Go Home (1976), This Time It's for Real (1977), and Hearts of Stone (1978), were Stax-influenced R&B arranged and produced by the co-founder of the band and Springsteen confederate Steven Van Zandt and largely featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. The Van Zandt-written "I Don't Want To Go Home" became Southside's signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics.
Southside Johnny & The Poor Fools embark on a stripped down journey through Johnny Lyon's eclectic version of the Great American Songbook. Playing a wide range of music pulled from Dylan, Mose Allison, Muddy Waters, NRBQ, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, The Band, George Jones and more. The Poor Fools will also dive into some of the legendary Asbury Jukes material--revisiting the classics as well as the underperformed deep track.
Southside Johnny says "The Poor Fools tour is a chance for me to try out different material and some Jukes standards in an acoustic-ish form. In this incarnation, Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Tommy Byrnes, Soozie Tyrell and I will all be singing, playing, and having some fun on stage. It will be a loose mix of songs, stories and banter between the musicians and--hopefully--the audience. Just lookin' to have a good time. It'll be a little side trip between the usual Asbury Jukes touring and our next recording."
No rules. No fences. Just a New Jersey legend and his troubadours looking for a little fun on a rare night off. Southside Johnny & The Poor Fools.
