outhside Johnny Lyon is part of Jersey Shore’s Holy Trinity, along with Bruce Springsteen and Steve (“Little Steven”) Van Zandt.

Starting in the early 1970s, the three friends started playing in New Jersey-based bands, either with each other or staying in close touch. And as each has grown older and found significant international success as roots-loving Rock & Roll musicians, they haven’t slowed down.

Lyon this year is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes’ first album by touring behind the band’s excellent most recent one, last year’s Soultime!. Read more about Lyon and the band here.


Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes play Saturday at Covington’s Madison Theater. Tickets/more info: madisontheateronline.com.
