In typical fashion, The Ultimate Jam Night was packed full with talent, energy and excitement. Paulie Z performed along side Wright for a Grand Funk Railroad iconic 70’s song, An American Band.

Another classic from Led Zeppelin and the 70’s rock movement was Dazed and Confused, recreated beautifully by the incredible Debby Holiday. So many fabulous songs from the era were represented, including  two Journey classics,  Lovin’ Touching’ Squeazin”, and Wheel in the Sky. The night concluded with the biggest hit of the decade, and still a favorite of every rocker, and Eagle’s mega hit, Hotel California.

The Ultimate Jam Night rock stars delivered another knock out evening of pure entertainment.
