Southside Johnny at Tropicana
Who Are They: Emerging from the legendary Asbury Park rock 'n' roll scene of the 1970s, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes gained attention in the wake of Bruce Springsteen's 1980s success. They perform tonight at the Tropicana Casino and Resort.
What To Expect: Often referred to as the "world's greatest bar band," the sound of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes is a combination of blues, R&B and rock 'n' roll complete with horns. Southside Johnny performed a concert last month on Long Island, N.Y. His setlist included the songs "I Don't Want To Go Home," "Love On the Wrong Side of Town," "One More Night To Rock" and "Broke Down Piece of Man."
Event Info: The show starts at 9 tonight in the Showroom at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, Atlantic City. Tickets, priced at $20, are available at the Tropicana box office, Ticketmaster and pressofatlanticcity.com/tickets
