Are you ready for One Wild Night with the hottest tribute band on the planet?
Wrong Jovi promise you exactly that. The band have been described as:-
"the best Bon Jovi tribute band in the world" by Justin Lee Collins; a
man who certainly knows his stuff as far as tribute acts are concerned, having
filmed a documentary about some of the world's most esteemed tribute artists.
The praise doesn't stop there! Former Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora, has
personally thanked the band for the work they do in ensuring the Bon Jovi legacy
remains fresh and exciting today.
Despite a relatively short history, Wrong Jovi have planted themselves firmly
onto the tribute circuit. A series of sell out shows at established and
respected circuit venues such as MK11 (Milton Keynes), The Trogg Bar (Hull),
Hertford Corn Exchange (Hertfordshire) and Club 85 (Hitchin) to name but a few
helped make 2016 a year to remember for the band. News of the bands success soon
reached the organisers of Tribfest; the biggest tribute festival in the world;
who snapped the band up for a debut performance on the VIP Big Top stage in
August 2016. The show was so successful that the band were invited on the
October Tribfest Mini Cruise and booked in for a main stage appearance at
Tribfest 2017. Venues across the country and beyond have been ensuring that they
secure Wrong Jovi for a performance in 2017 as the ultimate tribute machine
continues to gain momentum.
Wrong Jovi are fronted by the incredible Ally Ward, whose soaring lead vocals
and enigmatic stage presence will transport the audience to the days when Jon
Bon Jovi was the greatest frontman on the planet. Mark Harding provides the
virtuosic fire and passion of Richie Sambora's superlative guitar and backing
vocal skills. The role of David Bryan is taken on by keyboard wizard, Simon
Tabert; a classically trained and highly experienced vocalist and pianist. The
thunderous rhythm section of Tico Torres and Hugh McDonald is provided by Juan
Manzanera (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Alex Sturgeon (drums) who not
only sound the part but look it too.
A quick glance at a Wrong Jovi set list will show all of the greatest hits, from
Livin' On A Prayer to Wanted Dead Or Alive, Always to You Give Love A Bad Name
and Keep The Faith to Bad Medicine. However, not ones to rest on their laurels,
the band provide live favourites such as Raise Your Hands, Born To Be My Baby
and These Days to name but a few. Still want more??? OK!! To further ensure
their glowing reputation remains intact, the band delve even deeper into the Bon
Jovi catalogue with rarities such as This Ain't A Love Song, One Wild Night and
Dry County ensuring that the die hard Jovi fanatics are pleased in a way that no
other act can offer. With catalogue of songs spanning Bon Jovi's 35 year career,
Wrong Jovi really do have something for everyone. Wrong Jovi are the youngest,
freshest and hottest tribute to Bon Jovi and are constantly ensuring they better
themselves with every show. The band transform venues and clubs into stadiums
and arenas with the ultimate Bon Jovi live experience. A Wrong Jovi show is
rivalled by none so make sure you do not miss out on your dose of the very best
Bad Medicine in 2017 and beyond… Wrong Jovi are Wanted…Dead or Alive!
Local community join
together to help write new 'Police and Crime Plan'
COMMUNITY members, local Council's, voluntary sector
organisations, Police, health professionals and partners, from across the UK
criminal justice sector, have all helped to develop the new 'Police and Crime
Plan' for Lancashire area. The Police and Crime Commissioner's 2016; 2021
plan shapes the way Policing and Justice Services are delivered by setting out
strategic objectives which the Chief Constable and his team, are required to
deliver against. It also shapes the work in communities of community safety
partners and those delivering Criminal Justice Services.
The 4 priorities in the Lancashire Plan are:-
► Protecting local Policing.
► Tackling crime and reoffending.
► Supporting vulnerable people and victims.
► Developing safe and confident communities.
Mr Grunshaw said:- "Our engagement in developing the new plan was really
extensive. I met with literally hundreds of people representing partner
organisations and 1,672 Lancashire residents also completed survey to make sure
I understand the issues that matter to them most. Despite the huge pressures
that our Police and partners are facing, I am confident that by working together
we can keep Lancashire safe. We have had some excellent feedback from all those
involved and as we plan ahead I am sure that combined with these priorities we
will deliver the public's priorities."
Survey findings showed the following results when residents were asked to rank
Policing issues as high, medium or low risk priorities.
In total 1672 public survey responses were received and most said tackling major
crimes such as:- murder, rape and serious assaults (93.6%) were their highest
priority, with protecting children from child sexual exploitation (88.7%) coming
second. Counter terrorism/tackling serious organised crime (75%), and patrolling
neighbourhoods with high crime rates (72.4%) also ranked highly.
Responding to non-emergency calls (12.5%) and patrolling areas with low levels
of crime were only ranked high priority by a small number of people (10%) and
were actually seen as more than half of respondents' lowest priorities when it
came to crime themes.
Mr Grunshaw added:- "These figures show that residents were actively
looking for a response to crime in their area and it's an excellent way of
getting to know what they wanted to tackle. As we re-new the priorities I will
continue to listen to those involved who are assisting to make a difference to
Policing in their area."
Performance against the Police and crime plan is reported to the Police and
Crime Panel at quarterly meetings and also feature in an annual report. You can

Moorside quartet put best foot forward for
A group of running pals from Moorside Park in Crosby have
been inspired to tackle the Virgin Money London Marathon in aid of UK wide
children's charity, Action Medical Research. Jim Hicks, Elizabeth Van
Duyvenbode, Chris Beasley and Sarah Brewster from Moorside Park Run Club will be
joining the country's biggest race on Sunday, 23 April 2017, to raise funds to
save and change the lives of sick and disabled babies and children. The running
quartet is hoping to raise £4,500 with a string of fundraising events including,
a race night, in March. "Being parents, and having friends and
family with children, means that running and raising money for Action Medical
Research was an easy choice for the 4 of us to make. Not only is our aim to
raise as much money as possible, but we also want to inspire people to realise
that anything is possible!" said a spokesperson for the event. For
65 years Action Medical Research has helped pioneer treatments and ways to
prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and across the
world. Research they've funded has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop
ultrasound in pregnancy, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirths. Action
Medical Research is currently funding research into meningitis, Down syndrome,
epilepsy and premature birth, as well as some rare and distressing conditions
that severely affect children. If you'd like to run for a reason and
