This past Sunday, one local unsigned band from New Jersey won the opportunity of a lifetime – to open a show for hometown heroes Bon Jovi! Hoboken’s very own Hey Tiger won Saturn’s “Have a Nice Gig” competition to open for the rock legends on Tuesday, July 18, 2006 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

After submitting their debut record September to WPLJ-FM, Hey Tiger was chosen to compete against four other unsigned bands at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ. A panel of four judges from the radio station (Theresa Angela, Brad Blanks, Matt Sucich, and Suzanne Schneider) selected them as the winner. Hey Tiger, featuring Christina Alessi on vocals and guitar, Josh Bicknell on drums, Wayne Dorell on guitar and keyboards, Jim Lovegrove on bass and Damien Musto on guitar, couldn’t be more thrilled.

“The whole thing is pretty surreal,” said lead singer Christina Alessi. “We were stunned just to make it into the competition. I can’t even imagine playing in front of 50,000 people.”

After the performance at Giants Stadium, the band is automatically entered into a national pool of regional winners. One will be selected to open for Bon Jovi later in July and receive a recording deal.

“We work so hard on every performance and every song,” added Alessi. “Seeing our efforts recognized is incredible. We are so thankful to everyone at Saturn and WPLJ and especially Bon Jovi for giving us this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Hey Tiger will have the chance to thank WPLJ personally when they appear on The Big Show with Scott Shannon and Todd Pettengill Tuesday, July 18 at 9:00 AM.
