Meticulously recreating the sound and concert experience of BON JOVI
Talented bunch of musicians who were spot on to all of the Bon Jovi hits! The energy that these guys generated on stage carried into the crowd from the very first song to the last one! Not a soul in thr club that wasn't singing or dancing with them! Bon Jovi would be proud of this tribute band! I can't wait for more fun shows with these guys!
Caught the show Malden Sept 26th and was blown away by this band. My girlfriend was dancing from the moment the band started to the end of the night! The band played flawless and the lights and sound were just awesome!!
Amazing set! Unsurpassed vocals! Both musically and vocally from the first note, total balls out, just an amazing experience! If you closed your eyes you would think you were at a live BJ show!!!
For all you Bonjovi fans Wanted D.O.A is a MUST see cover band! Not only is the lead singer as hot as John Bonjovi but his voice is spot on! The band members rocked, energy was high and the crowd was pumped. The set list was perfectly planed, it felt like a true Bonjovi concert! LOVED IT
Wanted DOA are the best Bon Jovi tribute band! They play all the hits with such perfection, you would think you were watching Bon Jovi themselves. They sound great and are super entertaining -- had the whole crowd up on their feet and singing along. An amazing show! Will definitely go see them again.
Price Range: $3000 and up
Gig Length: 90 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
A true Bon Jovi concert experience
The sentiment of Bon Jovi's music hits home and no matter the age group, their music is iconic and recognizable to masses. As one of history's most successful music acts with over 130 million RIAA certified sales and countless awards, it's no wonder there are countless acts looking to pay tribute to this legendary group. However, there is only one who truly captures the authenticity of what Bon Jovi's music is all about and what their fans demand; Wanted DOA.
This is the part that we are supposed to tell you how great we are, and state all the awesome things we have done individually in the past. Well it's not about us, it is about Bon Jovi! As musicians, we have had varying degrees of success in our careers but the one thing we have in common, and the one thing that makes this tribute act work, is that we love and connect with the music. The group first formed in 2015 with the goal of capturing both the studio and live aspects of the songs and to really hone in on the essence of Bon Jovi. First and foremost it is all about the music. So that means working the vocal harmonies, guitar and keyboard sounds, and most importantly the lead vocals. To be a good Bon Jovi tribute you need to sound as much like Jon as possible! A pretty tough feat....
Next...The live show! Our goal is to put on a performance reminiscent of the rock shows from days long gone. Sound, lights and to engage the crowd, getting them on their feet while screaming for one more. Yes, our lead singer looks a little like Jon, and our guitarist (in a cowboy hat) could pass for Ritchie... But we are not trying look like the band, so you will not see us in wigs, trying to imitate the 80's era group. For us, it is a celebration of the music while, at the same time, trying to deliver an authentic experience to all the other fans of Bon Jovi. Please Join us...
