Slippery When Wet – A Bon Jovi Tribute at The Mercury Ballroom
Slippery When Wet is indistinguishable from Bon Jovi in appearance and sound. You will have to convince yourself you’re not seeing the real thing! After an incredible first performance last year, Mercury Ballroom had to have them back for another night filled with the best of Bon Jovi. Come see the band for yourself and you tell us if you could tell the difference on Friday, May 20.
Slippery When Wet – The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute was formed in 2003 by Jason Morey after answering many inquiries of “Are you Jon Bon Jovi?”. Most notably comedian Dave Chappelle invited Jason backstage following one of his comedy shows thinking that he was the New Jersey icon. It was then that Jason knew he had to take advantage of the resemblance.
It’s a good thing that Jason grew up on classic albums such as “Slippery When Wet” and “New Jersey”. Not to mention that he was also playing a few Bon Jovi songs in his widely successful tribute to the halcyon days of metal “The White Leppard Crue”.
Slippery When Wet has played to many packed houses throughout the Southeast and has quickly become the top draw at many of their regularly scheduled clubs. The bands shows are the most attended and highest grossing of any Bon Jovi Tribute in the country.In 2007 the band was officially authorized by Bon Jovi to perform their highly entertaining show.
Their drive , musical ability , showmanship and dedication to duplicating the Bon Jovi live experience simply cannot be outdone.
