The Godfather of "the New Jersey Sound," Southside Johnny performs in front of an audience of his biggest fans. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have become a staple in the New Jersey music scene having released twelve studio albums since 1976 and featuring a rotating group of members such as Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Steve Van Zandt.
FRONT AND CENTER showcases a strong mix of performers that will satisfy the traditional music fan while building interest from the younger music audience stations want to cultivate. From 'super groups' featuring Stephen Stills and Joe Bonamassa to British newcomer Jake Bugg; from Southern Soul and Heavy Metal to New Orleans Jazz and Chicago blues; there's something for just about everyone in the lineup of nine concerts recorded live, "front and center," at some of New York City's greatest intimate venues. Many of the artists are touring this fall, giving broadcasts airing in September and October a little extra buzz in those markets.
