Are you ready for One Wild Night with the hottest tribute band on the planet? Wrong Jovi promise you exactly that. The band have been described as “the best Bon Jovi tribute band in the world” by Justin Lee Collins – a man who certainly knows his stuff as far as tribute acts are concerned, having filmed a documentary about some of the world’s most esteemed tribute artists. The praise doesn’t stop there! Former Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora, has personally thanked the band for the work they do in ensuring the Bon Jovi legacy remains fresh and exciting today.
Despite a relatively short history, Wrong Jovi have planted themselves firmly onto the tribute circuit. A series of sell out shows at established and respected circuit venues such as MK11 (Milton Keynes), The Trogg Bar (Hull), Hertford Corn Exchange (Hertfordshire) and Club 85 (Hitchin) to name but a few helped make 2016 a year to remember for the band. News of the bands success soon reached the organisers of Tribfest – the biggest tribute festival in the world – who snapped the band up for a debut performance on the VIP Big Top stage in August 2016. The show was so successful that the band were invited on the October Tribfest Mini Cruise and booked in for a main stage appearance at Tribfest 2017. Venues across the country and beyond have been ensuring that they secure Wrong Jovi for a performance in 2017 as the ultimate tribute machine continues to gain momentum.
Wrong Jovi are fronted by the incredible Ally Ward, whose soaring lead vocals and enigmatic stage presence will transport the audience to the days when Jon Bon Jovi was the greatest frontman on the planet. Mark Harding provides the virtuosic fire and passion of Richie Sambora’s superlative guitar and backing vocal skills. The role of David Bryan is taken on by keyboard wizard, Simon Tabert – a classically trained and highly experienced vocalist and pianist. The thunderous rhythm section of Tico Torres and Hugh McDonald is provided by Juan Manzanera (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Alex Sturgeon (drums) who not only sound the part but look it too.
