Hollywood’s iconic Ultimate Jam Night has been a staple, attracting some of rock’s biggest stars. Brought to life by Chuck Wright of Quiet Riot, Ultimate Jam Night has gained such notoriety that it has upgraded from its Lucky Strike residency to the Whisky A Go Go. Wright’s house band drummer Matt Starr (of Mr. Big), guitarist Mitch Perry (of the Edgar Winter Group and MSG), and MC Paulie Z. (of Z-Rock and Z02) are just some of rocks major players that take the stage. Legends such as Nuno Bettencourt, Gilby Clark, Michael Starr and more have all passed thorough.
Last night was no different; Heidi Sheppherd(Butcher Babies), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big), Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth), Ira Black (Lizzy Borden) Sean Mcnabb (Sons of anarchy, RATT) and Mitch Perry (Michael Schenker Group, Edgar Winter). All made an appearance playing famous tunes to a packed house. Mitch Perry was rockin’ some custom made Hollywood leggings last night; onstage with Oni Logan (Lynch Mob) performing The Temptations classic, Shakey Ground. Billy Sheehan of Mr. Big’s fame tore up the stage with the Van Halen Classic, Light up the Sky, followed by Dilana (Supernova) showing that the girls can rock as hard as the boys and bunch of other great performances throughout the night. Ultimate Jam Night has featured over 700 of the worlds top musicians, boasting one of the biggest names in the business and it will continue to grow.
This was the debut for Jam Night at the Whisky and it’s off to a great start and promises a few surprises and curvballs, thanks to its new location. Chuck Wright set up Ultimate Jam Night for a single purpose, to build the rock community back up in Hollywood and it looks like it’s working. We’re glad to say that Hollywood Leggings is a part of that.
