Bon Jovi tribute band at 'The Fred,' Aug. 28

It could be a long time before Bon Jovi ever takes the stage at “The Fred.” On Aug. 28, local residents will get the next best thing.

Slippery When Wet will be the first of what concert promoter Chris Verdon hopes to be a series of tribute band concerts. A tribute band should sound like the band whose songs they are performing and often have the look as well. Slippery When Wet captures both qualities and if you are a Bon Jovi fan, like Verdon, you will be blown away. You can check them out at www.slipperywhenwetband.com.

Slippery When Wet’s drive, music ability, showmanship and dedication to duplicating the Bon Jovi live experience led them to be officially authorized by Bon Jovi to perform their highly entertaining show. With 14 Billboard Top Ten Bon Jovi hit songs like: “Living on a Prayer,” “Runaway,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Never Say Goodbye,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “It’s My Life,” and “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” just to name a few, “The Fred” is guaranteed to be rocking.
