JOHN CAFFERTY & THE BEAVER BROWN BAND

March 14

$52 – $60

An award-winning songwriter and recording artist with multi platinum albums, John Cafferty could simply be known as “The Man Who Made Eddie Cruise.”

After playing together for over 25 years, from the beachside haunts of their native Rhode Island to concert venues nationwide, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band bring both passion and hard-won perspective to their musical careers. Those years have given Cafferty a story to tell which, like the best rock songwriting, is both personal and universal.

Cafferty and Beaver Brown saxophonist Michael Antunes (who appeared as the saxophonist in the Eddie and the Cruisers movie) know a lot about winning and losing. By 1982, despite their status as one of the strongest club bands in the Northeast, they still had not won a recording contract. So, they took the risk of writing and performing the music for a yet-to-be-released movie. Of course, the film Eddie and the Cruisers became a blockbuster hit, and Cafferty’s rendition of “Tender Years” (which had been a poignant gem in the band’s repertoire for years) and “On the Dark Side” flew to the top of the Billboard Charts.

As both of those tracks became hits, the soundtrack of Eddie and the Cruisers was released by Scotti Bros/CBS in May 1983 and, bolstered by cable play of the film, sold more than 3 million copies, earning triple platinum status.
