Rhode Island roots rockers John Cafferty And The Beaver Brown Band burst into the public consciousness in the mid-1980s as the real-life songwriter and band behind the fictional, film-based Eddie And The Cruisers. “On The Dark Side,” the lead track from Eddie And The Cruisers: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, held the #1 position on the Billboard Rock chart and the MTV video charts for five consecutive weeks in 1984. The album sold over 3 million copies and was certified triple Platinum by the RIAA.
The title track from the group’s 1985 follow-up album “Tough All Over” became their second #1 single on the Billboard Rock charts and the song “C-I-T-Y” reached the Billboard Top 20. John Cafferty’s solo track “Heart’s on Fire” was featured in the Sylvester Stallone film Rocky IV and he received his second double Platinum soundtrack award. Over the years John Cafferty has placed 35 songs in major motion pictures.
John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band celebrates its 50th anniversary on tour and with its first ever Greatest Hits album, compiling the original recordings of their best-loved soundtrack contributions with hits from the band’s own albums.
