On Oct. 22, the Times Events series, sponsored by the York Times, will present an evening titled “The Stone Pony: Then and Beyond” at the legendary Asbury Park nightclub.
The 6:30 p.m. event will include a conversation led by Times reporter Nick Corasaniti and featuring original E Street Band drummer Vini Lopez; former Stone Pony manager (and Springsteen Archives director at Monmouth University in West Long Branch) Eileen Chapman; and current Stone Pony manager Caroline O’Toole. Southside Johnny is listed as the event’s “special musical guest,” and will perform two acoustic songs. He will NOT do a full set or have the full Asbury Jukes band with him.
Upcoming New Jersey shows by Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes include Oct. 13 at the Wilkins Theatre at Kean University in Union; Nov. 10 at Sound Waves at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City; and New Year’s Eve at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank.
