Slippery When Wet Ireland
Slippery When Wet Ireland - A Bon Jovi tribute band comes to the stage of Kavanaghs in Portlaoise this Saturday, November 24, taking to the stage at 9.30pm.
Slippery When Wet are widely recognised as Ireland's foremost Bon Jovi Tribute band, playing all the hits including, Livin’ on a Prayer, It’s My Life, Always and Wanted Dead or Alive.
The band is comprised of five members who are all fine musicians in their own right, having toured with some celebrated rock bands that gigged in the RDS and SFX with Magnum, Status Quo and they have performed in New York’s famous CBGB’s with Skid Row.
Currently touring Ireland, the band have sold out lots of venues, including Purty Loft Dun Laoghaire, Skylite Venue Warrenpoint and Bogans Venue Omagh, Monroe’s of Galway, the Chalk Venue Swords, and forthcoming events in the Crown Live New Year's Eve and The Royal Theatre Co. Mayo St. Patricks weekend to name just a few, with The Times UK adding, how they "play note perfect renditions" and their front man is "captivating" and "…they are not just talented performers… they are masters of illusion" shedding blood, sweat and tears to fulfil the soulful music of Bon Jovi. So much so that it’s hard to tell where the stage stops and the audience begins, because the audience interaction is so important to the guys.
The lead singer, Collie, believes he’s only an instrument to the audience - guiding them to the crescendo of one of the greatest rock bands on the planet, Bon Jovi.
