Ever since the release of Slippery When Wet in 1986, Bon Jovi have stunned audiences around the world with unforgettable live shows and a list of hit singles that most musicians can only dream of. Songs such as ‘Always’, ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’, ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’, ‘It’s My Life’ and (who could forget) ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ have cemented the bands place in the pantheon of rock legends.
Delivering a fitting tribute to such an acclaimed artist is no mean feat, but Wrong Jovi manage to do exactly that. Described as “the best Bon Jovi tribute band in the world”, this 5-piece band has even been personally thanked by former Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora, for the work they do. This band of look-alikes and sound-alikes deliver a concert experience like no other; the passion, enthusiasm and musical dexterity of each member is evident from the opening chord. Wrong Jovi have worked tirelessly to ensure that they are rivaled by no one and continue to delight audiences around the world.
The magnificent Ally Ward, whose soaring lead vocals and spectacular stage presence will transport the audience to the days when Jon Bon Jovi was the greatest front man on the planet, fronts the band. Mark Harding provides the virtuosic fire and passion of Richie Sambora’s superlative guitar and backing vocal skills. Keyboard wizard, Simon Tabert – a classically trained and highly experienced vocalist and pianist, portrays the role of David Bryan. The thunderous rhythm section of Tico Torres and Hugh McDonald is provided by Jon ‘Alex’ Sturgeon (drums) and James Houghton (bass) – two fantastic musicians with a wealth of experience behind them.
Since their formation, Wrong Jovi have taken the tribute circuit by storm and now regularly sell out established music venues and theatres around the country. The band are also regulars on the festival circuit having performed at Tribfest 2016 & 2017, Rock The Park in Wrexham and Zone 52 Festival to name but a few. 2018 will see Wrong Jovi return to many of these festivals as well as Tribfest Bahrain 2018 and Abu Dhabi. The band also appeared on BBC 1’s prime time TV show, ‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ in 2017.
With their attention to detail, stagecraft and natural charisma, Wrong Jovi never fail to make every venue (regardless of size) feel like a stadium or arena. Greatest hits such as ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’, ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’, ‘Always’, ‘Bed Of Roses’ and ‘Bad Medicine’ are mixed with live favourites such as ‘Blood On Blood’ and ‘Raise Your Hands’ to provide a high octane journey through the bands back catalogue. Even the most die-hard fans are catered for with rarities like ‘Dry County’ and ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. There really is something for everyone.
Wrong Jovi guarantee to deliver ‘One Wild Night’ of greatest hits, live favourites and rarities, so don’t miss out on your dose of ‘Bad Medicine’ with “the best Bon Jovi tribute band in the world”. With a hectic 2018 schedule getting busier by the day, Wrong Jovi are most certainly ‘Wanted… Dead or Alive!”
