Slippery When Wet
SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) is made up of five talented, well seasoned musicians who have extensive performing and recording experience. SWW (NJ)has toured the USA and the Caribbean since 2001 and performed over 350 shows ranging from Clubs to large venues, corporate events and casino’s. These performances include HARD ROCK CAFÉ’ (SANTA DOMINGO DR, OLD SAN JUAN PR), BB KING’S NYC, FANTASY SPRINGS CA, STARLAND BALLROOM, BAKER THEATER, STATE FAIR MEADOWLANDS….and the list goes on.
Slippery When Wet Has Been Perfecting Their Craft
SWW (NJ) has been perfecting their craft for over eight years and counting. Mike Parkes has an uncanny resemblance to a young JON BON JOVI — right down to the wardrobe. His vocal range nails any of the highest notes. This combined with Radicci’s blazing guitars hitting all the solos note for note, as on the albums. This backed up with a rock solid rhythm section with Tommy John on drums, Ronnie Parkes on bass
and Sean Faust on keyboards. With amazing backing vocals, SWW (NJ) is unmatched.
These born and raised Jersey boys are the only band to capture the look, sound, and energy of the 80’s performances. There is simply no comparison . At a SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) performance the audience is transported back to the 80’s when hair was big, outfits were loud, and the music was even louder. There is enough energy to propel the entire venue into delirium with hands in the air singing along with the band.
SWW (NJ) performs all the hits from RUNAWAY through the the latest radio singles and remembers the obscure fan favorites, like EDGE OF A BROKEN HEART and SILENT NIGHT.
Slippery When Wet — The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute Band
SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) is a true tribute to BON JOVI!
“WOW!!!! What a show they put on. The energy on stage, the songs, the performance! Everything is just awesome!! I love the band and look forward to seeing them over and over again! It seems like everyone in the band puts 100% into making it as real and great as possible for the audience. The singer and guitar player, the bass player, the keyboard player and the drummer TOTALLY ROCK!!! And you guys look real good too!! You have a new fan for life!!!” ~B
“WOW!! You guys ROCK!! It really seemed there was no difference between SWW and the real Bon Jovi; all of you have every note and every move down cold, and I loved how you get the audience involved. I’ve been a Bon Jovi fan since about age 8, but I was too young to go to concerts during the big-hair era. Seeing you guys was like getting in a time machine and finally getting that chance. I flew 3000 miles to this Expo and I can honestly say I had a BLAST! Thanks for being part of it & thanks for the memories!! oh yeah, I took a lot of pictures during the show & I’ll be sure to send you some after I get the film developed ” ~Alex F
“SWW knows how to work a crowd. The energy level is always up and despite not being the biggest Bon Jovi fan in the world, I was impressed enough the first few times I saw them to drive the 1 1/2 hours to see them. This show was no disappointment. They played everything from the obscure to the overplayed with precision and got the crowd going for just about every song (including me). The singer (Mike) has got great range, he gets extra kudos for hitting the high notes in “Runaway”! The songs were an authentic tribute and for someone like me who is stuck in the 80′s forever, this was a treat. They all looked like they were having fun too which makes it much more fun for the audience. Great job guys! Highly recommended.” ~anon
