Slippery When Wet (Bon Jovi) at Tarara Winery-Summer Concert Series

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 Radicci’s incredible likeness to 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 ofPaul 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!

 

Bring your lawn chair or blanket. Admission is $15. You may bring a cooler/food into the venue, but NO alcohol. They check all containers. Wine is available by the glass or bottle. There is also a food vendor at most concerts with either pizza or BBQ.

The concerts have been getting crowded early and we've had trouble getting our normal meeting place and holding enough space for people. Please get there early (5:00) to help save space. We will post on the site where we set ourselves up when we get situated. But TEXT me if you can't find us at[masked]-0424. If you call, I probably won't be able to hear and won't be able to hear voice mails. Also, once the show starts, I am not going to watch my phone every minute, so I may not respond right away. Although some people seem to never to put theirs down, so usually someone will notice if you post something on the site.

    Ironically enough there is a band out of Atlanta by the same name and the lead singer is a spitting-image of Jon Bon Jovi

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
