Jason Morey might not be a household name, but everywhere he goes, strangers come up to him. They have one question: “Are you Jon Bon Jovi?” Reportedly, even comedian and renowned celebrity detector Dave Chappelle once invited Morey backstage because he confused him with the rock icon. When you’re consistently mistaken for one of People magazine’s Most Beautiful People in the World, and you can sing exactly like him too, it’s only natural to do what Jason Morey did: start a Bon Jovi tribute band.
Since 2003, Slippery When Wet: The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute has been fulfilling the appetites of Bon Jovi fans across the Southeast with their meticulously faithful act. Using live arrangements cribbed from the last five real Bon Jovi tours, Morey and his band fill intimate clubs with enough energy to resound through a sprawling arena. Having mastered a hefty setlist of Bon Jovi bonbons, the band inspires mass sing-alongs with megahits such as “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and “Blaze of Glory.” True-blue Bon Jovi fans applaud the band for digging into deeper cuts such as “Born to Be My Baby,” “Wild in the Streets,” and random dialogue from Moonlight and Valentino.
