Slippery When Wet (NJ), The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute Band is a group of seasoned veterans of the New York and New Jersey music scene. Raised on the same mean streets and reared in many of the same bars and nightclubs as Jon and the band, these experienced rockers bring the same energy, enthusiasm, and New Jersey attitude to the stage as the early Bon Jovi, circa 1986!

SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) has been perfecting their show for the past twelve years and are going stronger than ever. Singer Mike Parkes bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Jon Bon Jovi right down to the wardrobe. His vocal range nails all of the highest notes as he brings to life the high-energy stage presence of Jon in his youth. Combined with Bobby Camaro's  rendition of a young Richie Sambora, whose blazing guitar solos nail every note as if you were listening to the original recordings, you get a front line rivaled only by Jon and Richie themselves. Supporting this amazing frontline is the rock solid rhythm section comprised of Paul Morris on keyboards, Ronnie Parkes on bass and Tommy John on drums. Complete with pristine backing vocals this group of Jersey Boys is a force to be reckoned with in any venue!

Since 2001 SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) has toured the USA and the Caribbean and has performed over 500 shows including nightclubs, casinos, large festivals, private parties, and corporate events. These performances include the following Atlantic City casino’s: Harrah’s, The Golden Nugget, Borgata, Bally’s, The Hilton, and The House of Blues. Other venues include Sugar House Casino in Philadelphia, Fantasy Springs Casino in California, The Hard Rock Cafes in Santa Domingo and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, as well as The Hard Rock Cafe in San Juan Puerto Rico, BB King’s in NYC, New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom, The Baker Theater in NJ, The Harry Chapin Amphitheater in NY, New Jersey State Fair at the Meadowlands, New Hampshire’s Palace theatre, as well as many others.

SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) performs all the Bon Jovi classics from the earliest hits like RUNAWAY up through the latest radio singles, and have been known to execute the occasional obscure fan favorite.

SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) is a TRUE Tribute to BON JOVI!
