Übersicht - Band - Diskografie - The Poor Fools

Das Musikprojekt "Southside Johnny & the Poor Fools" wurde im Herbst 2011 ins Leben gerufen. Johnny Lyon, Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Tommy Byrnes, Soozie Tyrell und ausgewählte Gastmusiker performen während der Konzerte nicht nur Southside Johnny Songs, sondern auch alte Volkslieder aus der Feder Muddy Waters, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, The Band und George Jones.

Southside Johnny and The Poor Fools embark on a stripped down journey through Johnny Lyon's eclectic version of the Great American Songbook. Playing a wide range of music from Dylan, Mose Allison, Muddy Waters, NRBQ, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, The Band, George Jones and more, The Poor Fools will also dive into some of the legendary Asbury Jukes material--revisiting the classics as well as the underperformed deep track.

Southside Johnny says "The Poor Fools tour is a chance for me to try out different material and some Jukes standards in an acoustic-ish form. In this incarnation, Jeff Kazee, John Conte, Tommy Byrnes, Soozie Tyrell and I will all be singing, playing, and having some fun on stage. It will be a loose mix of songs, stories and banter between the musicians and--hopefully--the audience. Just lookin' to have a good time. It'll be a little side trip between the usual Asbury Jukes touring and our next recording."

Am 2. Februar 2013 veröffentlichten "The Foor Fools" ihr erstes Album mit dem Titel "Songs From The Barn".

Die offizielle Pressemeldung:

Twelve songs of life and circumstance through the eyes of Southside Johnny and his roadworn troubadours, The Poor Fools. Tales of lost love at the border (Mexicali Waltz); the celebration of The Good Life from a life of making music (So Good); situational confusion in a seedy hotel room (Blood From A Stone); and a stone cold Chicago Blues treatment of a Dylan Classic (Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues). 

The Poor Fools sing of ramblin' on (Soon I Will Be Gone), dysfunctional family fun (Randy Newman's Old Kentucky Home), the sense of unsaid trouble in paradise (Beneath Still Waters), and also lay down some home-fried swamp Rhythm & Blues (Down Home Girl/Something You Got).

Multi-instrumentalists and singers, all—musically, The Poor Fools ride the Mystery Train to wherever it takes them, and you'll probably wanna jump on for life to join em'.
