Ultimate 'Band' Night Comes To Hollywood

Ultimate Jam Night, the free, long-running live music experience staged at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, continues to spice up the weekly gatherings with a variety of musical styles and themes. 

Tonight (June 14), for its 66th edition, the show's organizers are bringing in full bands for what they're calling “Ultimate Band Night.” The program will feature the Chamber Brothers performing their legendary hit “Time,” plus heavy metal titans Attika 7, Southern-flavored The Disreputable Few, Kicking Harold (who recently completed a tour with the Winery Dogs), and many others.

In addition to the bands, special guests expected to sit in include Ratt vocalist Stephen Pearcy,  King’s X's Dug Pinnick, Quiet Riot’s Alex Grossi, and keyboardist Ed Roth of Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats.”

As usual, the Ultimate Jam Night “house band” with bassist Chuck Wright of Quiet Riot, drummer Matt Starr of Mr. Big, guitarist Mitch Perry of MSG, and multi-instrumentalist Walter Ino of Survivor, will be there to back up any of the featured players.

“Ultimate Jam Night built its reputation by giving its audience a unique live music program that enlists a rotation of music’s greatest musicians performing unrehearsed.  That will continue during this show, and we’ll also add full bands to the bill,” founder Chuck Wright explains. “It’s our reward to the community by giving them bands representing multiple genres, for free.”

Held each Tuesday night on the Sunset Strip, Ultimate Jam Night has drawn some of music’s biggest names, including Van Halen's David Lee Roth, Cheap Trick's Robin Zander, and dozens more. Along with weekly jams, the organizers have also sponsored numerous community and charity-based events.
