Ultimate Jam Night hit new heights with the CeeLo Green band, Jeff Scott Soto, and an impromptu set from multi-platinum recording artists Extreme.
Ultimate Jam Night more than earned their Ultimate moniker, pulling out all the stops with a mini-set from Extreme.
The night began with Kenny Kenowski on vocals for “Everlong” and “Wonton Song,” and then Ultimate Jam Night MC extraordinaire Paulie Z stepped up to the mic for a few tunes. Next up, Matt Starr delivered the goods with a kick ass version of Adam Ant’s “Goody Two Shoes,” complete with horn section, and then American Idol’s Hunter Larsen took the stage for “Chain of Fools.”
This was followed by three members of The Cult, former Cult bassist Chris Wyse, and current members John Tempesta and Damon Fox, joined by Matt Starr on vocals for The Cult’s “Wild Flower.”
Near the end of the first set, Debby Holiday was joined by CeeLo Green’s band for CeeLo’s “F*** You,” and “Crazy,” and damn near blew the roof off of the place.” Then Jeff Scott Soto, who was surprised with a mini-cake for his upcoming birthday, closed the set out with “There’s Only One Way to Rock.”
The second set raised the bar even further. There was a line around the block of people unable to get in to see Extreme join in the jam night festivities. They took the stage a little after 11:30 and blasted through “Decadence Dance,” “Cupid’s Dead,” “Am I Ever Gonna Change,” and “Get the Funk Out,” and then the house band: Chuck Wright, Mitch Perry, Steve Ferlazzo and Barry Pointer, joined Gary Cherone for “Who Are You,” while Nuno Bettencourt sat in on drums! And then Howie Simon and the Dirty Rotten Horns joined in for “Same Old Song and Dance.”
The evening ended on a high note with Joe Retta singing lead on “With a Little Help From My Friends.”
