Jon Bon Jovi, who does some talent scouting for EMI Records, checked out local rockers Soraia Wednesday night at The Legendary Dobbs (304 South). He hung out at the show with his old pal 93.3 WMMR's Pierre Robert.

The group played its industry showcase for Bon Jovi and producer Obie O'Brien who recorded Soraia's CD "Shed the Skin," and who does A&R work for Universal, as well as entertainment lawyer Michael Guido.

The band has history with Bon Jovi. Soraia opened for the group at the Wells Fargo Center in March 2011 and on at least one other concert in New York the year before. Additionally, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora played on a track on "Shed the Skin."
