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

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

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
