Tuesday night at the Whisky A Go-Go was more than just 70’s night for The Ultimate Jam, it was also founder Chuck Wright’s (Quiet Riot) Birthday bash.
The show opened on Tuesday with Precious Metal featuring founder and original drummer Susette Andres, original bassist Alex Peterson, vocalist Leslie Knauer, guest keyboards/sax Aviva Maloney & guest guitarist Jeff Mattern, and featuring lead guitarist Janet Robin.
The second opener from Los Angeles, combining elements of both classic, alternative and modern rock with soul, blues and funk was FIRE.
In typical fashion, The Ultimate Jam Night was packed full with talent, energy and excitement. Paulie Z performed along side Wright for a Grand Funk Railroad iconic 70’s song, An American Band.
Another classic from Led Zeppelin and the 70’s rock movement was Dazed and Confused, recreated beautifully by the incredible Debby Holiday. So many fabulous songs from the era were represented, including two Journey classics, Lovin’ Touching’ Squeazin”, and Wheel in the Sky. The night concluded with the biggest hit of the decade, and still a favorite of every rocker, and Eagle’s mega hit, Hotel California.
The Ultimate Jam Night rock stars delivered another knock out evening of pure entertainment.
