Once upon a time in the early 1970’s there was the Blackberry Booze Band- from Neptune New Jersey- which eventually became Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. Back then Steve Van Zandt was known as Miami Steve and he was the guitarist for the Jukes and managed them with the legendary Obie Dziedzic. Legend has it that a friend who knew Ed Scaiky the famous Philadelphia DJ knew a friend who knew a friend whose grandfather was an old world jewelry maker and connected Obie up with him. The old man made an Asbury Jukes button/brooch/pin from bronze and zinc with 2 grip backs by hand and rumor has it that only the band -certain Epic Records personel-and the inner circle were given them.. Recently when Hood was moving boxes around in Leroys Basement we found a handful of these buttons and are offering them to fans only on this website and not available at live gigs. Very limited quantity when they are gone they are history. Grab it while you can!
