Star-Studded Ultimate Jam Night To Pay Tribute To Adrenaline Mob's David Z

This Tuesday (August 1), Ultimate Jam Night, the weekly revue held at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, will present a special tribute to Adrenaline Mob bassist David Z. Doors open at 8:00 and, as always, the show is free. 

A number of special guests, including Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, Sebastian Bach (formerly of Skid Row), Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen), Dug Pinnik (King's X), Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad), Joe Retta (Heaven & Earth), Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot), Richie Kotzen (Winery Dogs), Mike Portnoy (Winery Dogs, Flying Colors), Rikki Rockett (Poison), and many more, are expected to perform.

The Ultimate Jam Night house band featuring Quiet Riot bassist and UJN founder Chuck Wright, drummer Matt Starr (Mr. Big, Ace Frehley), guitarist Mitch Perry (Edgar Winter, MSG) and keyboardist Walter Ino (Survivor) will be on hand to support the musicians. Paulie Z, the brother of David Z, will host the night.

David Zablidowsky, aka David Z, was the bassist for both Adrenaline Mob and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He was tragically killed on July 14 when a tractor-trailer struck Adrenaline Mob’s RV, en route to a gig at the State Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Ultimate Jam Night will celebrate the bassist's life and career. Although the event is free, organizers will be asking for donations for the Official David Z Scholarship Fund to benefit the music school at Brooklyn College. To make a donation, go to

A full house is expected, so fans should get to the Whisky early. For those who can't make it to the Sunset Strip, the entire night will be broadcast on www.zinna. tv.
