The Rollin Stoned
A tribute to The Rolling Stones focusing on the early part of their
career from 1964 – 1969 including ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, ‘Paint It
Black’, ‘Not Fade Away’ and ‘Satisfaction’.
They have been described by The Times as ‘better than the real thing’
and it’s not just enthusiastic fans who rate The Rollin Stoned so
highly, it’s the people in the know and those from the Stones’ inner
circle; even booking the band for a band member’s birthday party..
We hope you’ve got the name and if you’re puzzled by our game, why not
take a look at some of the things that have been said about us, “….
the nearest thing to the real article” was the view of one reviewer
who claims to have seen them all in ‘The Times’, “…. about as true
to the originals as you can get” raved another and “Just like the real
thing” enthused rock star photographer Gered Mankowitz at his recent
private view. Indeed Keith Richards’ own mother, Doris, was kind
enough to describe us as “outstanding” and fit to “stand in for the
Stones” which is about as good an endorsement as any could wish. Well
we could go on, but you get the picture, it’s not just enthusiastic
fans who rate the Rollin’ Stoned so highly, it is the people in the
know and those from the Stones’ inner circle.
With a Rollin’ Stoned show, the costumes are shamelessly camp gaudy
and fab, the instruments genuinely vintage and the wit irreverent.
However while the tongue is never far from the cheek we make sure it
is never to the detriment of the music. This band is not to be
confused with the grotesque parody on parody ‘Stella Street’-Lite
Stones bands that abound, nor a bunch of seasoned old pros,
opportunistically hitched on to the “Tribute Bandwagon” for an easy
ride. What clearly comes across to audiences seeing the band at work
is the passion we all have for the music of what is, cliche or not,
“The Greatest Rock’n’Roll Band” the world has seen.
A typical two hour show includes not only all the classic crowd
pleasing hits, but is spiced with enough eclectic selections from the
deeper recesses of Stones Album archives to satisfy the most demanding
of “Buffs”, all performed with the same vibrantly authentic attack and
raw energy that characterised the original Stones shows in their prime.
For those who witnessed the Stones – Brian Jones et al – in their hey
Day, this is a chance to revisit lost youth, for the rest of you,
now’s your chance to see what all the fuss was about.
