I'm pretty sure that Jon Bon Jovi toured with the Jukes in the summer of 1990. It was a short tour of just a few weeks and it was a crazy time for Jukes fans once word got out that he was in the band. I remember seeing shows at Westbury Music Fair, the Fast Lane, the Chance but I'm sure there had to be a few more.

Gary, I think you're right -- 89 was the Slow Dance tour (I'm pretty sure) and I was doing other stuff in the summers of '91 and '92.

Thanks!

Hey, Peaches. I don't know for sure which summer it was. It was early 90s, I think, maybe 92? Linda T would remember.

sorry!

And former Jukes Little Steven, Soozie Tyrell, Barry Danielian and Patti Scialfa, too!

And Jon Bon Jovi, too, if you count the summer he played with the Jukes. So we're up to 7.

Great to see some former (and maybe future) Jukes on the 12-12-12 beneift concert. The Kingfish, Ed Manion, was there on sax with Bruce - and Bobby Bandiera was there on stage left with Bon Jovi. When Bruce came out to sing with Bon Jovi, he and Bobby shook hands, so Bobby got some good TV time.

This is a bunch of days late and some dollars short but I need to post an appreciation of the boys in the band and their show@BB's on 12/1. After more shows attended since 1978 than I care to or can remember... :lol: ...I need to state that they were on fire, again.

So I walked in with a couple of wishes: Vary the setlist a bit (Loving Cup, thank you Jeff! Just A Dream, Save Me, Angel Eyes, Breakdown>The Fever, Got to Be a Better Way Home). Check. Play Better Days (I'm the one who yelled out for it and thank you, Jeff, for taking the bull by the horns and passing along the suggestion to Uncle Johnny... 8-) ...and what a great and impassioned version it was considering Sandy and its aftermath). Check. Do some "best of" versions of some songs (Passion Street, Walk Away Renee with a massive assist from John Isley on sax, he's really coming into his own as a Juke!). Check.

All these decades elapsed and SSJ still has the fire burning deep within him to come out and to continue to play groundbreaking shows like this one. A young lady turned around to me 'bout mid-way and commented as to how much fun I was having and I responded "how can you not have fun at a Jukes show?" Her smile was all the response I needed to see... :D !

Thank you again to SS and the almighty Jukes for another great night in the heart of NYC. And the same thanks to us fans that make it possible for them to come in and show us for a couple of hours how it should be done. :) And a special shout-out to Joe Prinzo and Pete Fox for everything that they do to make a SSJ & the Jukes show to happen as smoothly as possible. And for being the nice people that they are... ;)

"What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz!" Lyrics from Loving Cup. As sung by Jeff Kazee.

May you all have a great and safe rest of the year and look forward to sharing the floor space again in 2013!

Peace,
Alex from Astoria/Sunnyside.

I"m with you Snafu. This site makes me seasick,and I still can't find the QOW. It took a while, but I finally found the Jive. Happy Belated Birthday, Johnny. :D
I am happy to say that I messed up my calendar for December. But it is fixed now and I am off on the 22nd. Now I have to work on Christmas, but at least I got tickets for Bethlehem. Not quite so happy that they are at three different tables, but at least they are all on the same side of the stage. See ya'll there.

Happy Latkes to All...

By the Way......If anyone is in the vicinity.......Billy Walton's Band will be in New Hope tonight! John and Peters at 9:30.....
I can't make it, but wish I could....Wish I could clone myself on the weekends (but I'm most likely the only one wishing that!)

Methinks the "new" website is too clever by half, with all the sideways and upsy-downsy scrolling, after a few sips of grog you could get a little seasick (not from the grog but from the stale ice [hats off to Mr. WC Fields}) - anyways the Jive is in a horizontally scrolling "News" box. And, more importantly, IS it grog time yet?

That bread was fresh, of course, not as fresh as some of the fans in the front row (whom shall remain nameless...). Really it was...all nutty and spicy...don't ask why but somehow I was reminded of the Lead Singer...and pricey I might add, but I really can't add so who knows.... In any event, it is probably best to bake it really well...then deep fry it just in case...and, whatever you do...don't feed it to the birds, please....

The show at BB King's was fab!!

How great to hear a surprise version of Breakdown!

There was an early celebration of Uncle Southside's 64th Birthday to which the front row gave the musical answer: Yes!

Yes.... to each and every question that Sir Paul poses in his song.
Will you still need me?
Will you still feed me?
Will you still be sending me a Valentine, Birthday Greeting…and, yes a bottle of wine.

One of the reasons for our answer is: That Voice … it soothes, stimulates commiserates, educates and just all around sets things right.

Thank you, Southside here’s to 64 and many more and please keep on rockin’!!

LeRoy's Basement Vol. I Sounds very interesting, indeed.
Just saw Uncle Southside's Jive on the eve of the hurricane. I can only imagine that someone gave him a "unique" Rosetta Stone gift set. Perhaps he will give us an translation this evening at BB King's?

See you real soon.......

It's not an official Jukes show or an official Fools show, but many Jukes and Fools, including Southside, will be there to support the cause.

That's right, Peaches, BB Kings is coming up! That's always a great place to see a Jukes show, especially when the city will be all lit up for the Holidays. If you come into town early that day, I recommend the free ice skating at Bryant Park, 42nd and 6th, about 2 (long) blocks from BB Kings. http://www.bryantpark.org/things-to-do/pond.html

Who's coming into town for BB Kings? Remember, doors open at 6, show at 8 -- gotta get everything done before the disco crowd comes in.

Light Of Day Concert - Niagara Falls

Postby Canadian Fan » November 11th, 2012, 6:17 pm

Thanks to Miss October for posting the setlist from the Niagara Falls (Ontario) Show. Hopefully the organizers have Southside Johnny return for the annual event next year. It was a great night of music. Five hours of music for a ticket price of just $40.. It was great to speak to the Kingpin at the merchandise table. That makes three Southside Johnny concerts (two with the Poor Fools and one with the Jukes) for me within two hours of home this year.
