John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band Rock the Surflight Theater – My Night on the Darkside

The Surflight Theater on Long Beach Island was shown the “Dark Side” Saturday night when John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band rocked the house.  I hosted the show which also featured “Killer Joe and the Lido Soul Quartet” doing a set that would have made the Blues Brothers proud.

While talking to the audience on stage, I was surprised how deep many of these fans were into this band. They not only knew “Eddie and the Cruisers” intimately but “Eddie and the Cruisers 2” which they had recorded the soundtrack for. Now that’s not Michael Pare singing those songs.  Backstage I was telling John how I used to play “On The Dark Side in Philadelphia urging Eagles fans to switch over to the Giants for just one game ;)   Feel the love. Here’s the video from ‘On the Darkside’ if you’ve never seen it with actor Michael Pare.’

 

The band took the stage and Cafferty wasted no time getting to the point. After the opening song, the lights went low and the piano was tickled to thunderous applause as the audience was over to the “Dark Side”  it was a raucous version that had Cafferty as well as sax player Michael “Tunes” Antunes roaming into the audience. “Tunes” also did a moving solo during “Tender Years” which he dedicated to his friend Clarence Clemons.

My biggest thrill at that was when they each shook hands with my sons Lennon and Albert during the show. The boys were lit as was the rest of the show which included among others “Wild Summer Nights” “Runaround Sue” “Things are Tough All Over’ “ Living in the C I T Y” and a great cover version of “Domino”  .

Here are a couple of photos with me and John Cafferty:

The Surflight Theater www.surflight.org emerged from bankruptcy in 2011 and since then Suzy Yengo, owner of the legendary Catch A Rising Star comedy chain www.catcharisingstar.com has been helping them get on their feet by producing shows there. Last August I performed with Uncle Floyd. Among the acts who performed there this summer were Pat Cooper, Robert Klein, Joe Piscopo, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.
