    Ultimate Bon JoviDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Bon Jovi Tribute Band
    Back in a small town at the Jersey shore, Johnny Giovanni was working in a local pizza parlor owned by Nico. Johnny had dreams of forming a Bon Jovi tribute band, something to get out of the small town world, something bigger and better than he was. He had the look, could sing and play the guitar. He just needed the band. One day a guy with a guitar slung across his back came into the pizza place. His name was Ritchie Samborini. A slice and a Coke turned into a dream. Johnny told Ritchie about his dream of a band and how he'd been holding onto it. Ritchie said he was in. Now they needed the other half of the band.

    Nico overheard the conversations and said he's a drummer who had the chops to handle the job. Nico was interested.

    The last piece of the puzzle was the bassist and keyboard player. They needed just the right fit but didn't know who could pull it off until one day Bobby and Danny strolled in for a slice. The were both classically trained and had studied at Juilliard in nearby New York City and came down the shore for the summer.

    That's how Ultimate Bon Jovi became Ultimate Bon Jovi.
