JULY 18 SLIPPERY WHEN WET
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! Since 2001 SLIPPERY WHEN WET (NJ) has toured the USA and the Caribbean and has performed over 500 shows including nightclubs, casinos, large festivals, private parties, and corporate events. www.ultraartists.com.
JULY 25 AMISH OUTLAWS
The Amish practice a tradition called “Rumspringa” (running around) at 16, when they can live free of the strict Amish code before deciding if they want to be baptized into the Amish church. Surprisingly, virtually all of the youths return. But sometimes they don’t. Four of the original six members of Amish Outlaws were born and raised in Lancaster, PA and had a strict Amish upbringing. This included no electricity from land lines, no alcohol, no musical instruments, but their spirits were too wild for the Amish lifestyle. Once they trampled in the Devil’s Playground, there was no turning back. Since Rumspringa, the Amish Outlaws have become well acclimated to the pleasures and vices of the modern world... music, most of all. From Johnny Cash, JayZ, and Lady Gaga to Bon Jovi and Elvis they will entertain you! www.amishoutlaws.com.
