The "Ultimate Jam Night" debuted its residency at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday, March 29. Among the participating musicians were Tommy Vext (WESTFIELD MASSACRE, DIVINE HERESY), Ira Black (WESTFIELD MASSACRE, LIZZY BORDEN), Monte Pittman (Madonna), Jerry Montano (DEATH DIVISION, HELLYEAH, DANZIG) and Dio Britto (WESTFIELD MASSACRE) who performed METALLICA's "Master Of Puppets". Heidi Shepherd of the BUTCHER BABIES joined them and performed a heavy duet with Vext, PANTERA's "Fucking Hostile".
"Ultimate Jam Night" features a wide range of music genres, a circus atmosphere, every Tuesday night at the Whisky A Go Go.
Chuck Wright, longtime bassist of QUIET RIOT, started "Ultimate Jam Night" over a year ago at Lucky Strike and has now moved it to the Whisky A Go Go. It remains a no-cover show.
"Ultimate Jam Night" continues to feature its house band of Wright, drummer Matt Starr (MR. BIG), guitarist Mitch Perry (MSG), and MC Paulie Z. (Z-Rock and Z02).
Using a format of unrehearsed tunes integrating music’s best performers, performance art, comedy, and charity giving the show has attracted over 28,000 in-person guests, viewership in excess of two million and worldwide attention. In its first year, the weekly event boasted performances by members of KISS, MOTÖRHEAD, BON JOVI and others.
"We're proud that our show has created not only a following, but an extremely loyal family feel," said Wright. "We're excited that the Whisky allows us to continue our mission of rebuilding the rock music community — only this time on the Sunset Strip in an iconic and historical setting."
