THANK YOU ASBURY PARK
From Backstreets Magazine

With one foot in the teaching world and one foot in the rock music world, Joe Grushecky has been a staple on the Jersey Shore scene for 25 years. Stating that he never wanted to give up his music career, Grushecky admits he doesn't know how he balances it all. "I just do," he laughed. He described Asbury as a "real music town — it's in peoples' DNA".

Calling it his best album yet, Joe highlighted his recently released More Yesterdays Than Tomorrows during the show with an energy that permeated the crowd. The album took about a year and a half to record, Joe's son and bandmate Johnny Grushecky having a heavy hand in the album's production. "That's What Makes Us Great," the album's new protest song that features Bruce Springsteen's vocals on the recording, came out toward the end of the night.

Also among the songs the Houserockers performed were five that Grushecky co-wrote with Springsteen: "Code of Silence," "Another Thin Line," "Homestead," "Dark and Bloody Ground," and "I'm Not Sleeping."

During the set, Joe's preamble to "Work in Progress" stated that he is just getting started, and that there's more to come. His poignant dedication of "Never Be Enough Time" to Bob Benjamin, a longtime friend and the founder of the Light of Day Foundation, allowed the crowd to feel the love and reverence he has for Benjamin. Grushecky credits Light of Day with "keeping Asbury alive." This sold-out crowd was happy — happy to be a part of this celebration of summer and this celebration of life.

Had to make the decision between the Jukes at The Pony or The HR's in Northern Va.....so the Black and the Gold got the nod. Just a solid ass effort from Joe and the boys. I'm really glad I made the drive---what a great way to cap off my vacation. Thanks to the guys for never disappointing.

I've been a fan for many years but never got to see The Houserockers live. I finally got to a show at the beautiful Sellersville Theater on friday the 6th. You guys killed it from the first note to the last. Hopefully this won't be the last time at that venue. Again thanks for a great night of rock n roll.
