Meet the Jukes: Interviews with Jeff Kazee, Glenn Alexander and John Isley



Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes perform at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Year’s Eve.

With Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes‘ big New Year’s Eve show coming up at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, I thought people might enjoy taking another look, or their first look, at in-depth interviews I’ve done from December 2016 to December 2017 with three current members of the Jukes: keyboardist and vocalist Jeff Kazee, guitarist Glenn Alexander, and saxophonist John Isley.

Here are links to them, as well as to my most recent interview with Southside.
