Rudy Colombini and the Unauthorized Rolling Stones will bring the songs of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to the South Shore Room this week.
Tuesdays’ performance by the San Francisco band launches a series of Tuesday night tribute shows at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
The shows also include nods to Jimmy Buffet, Santana, David Bowie, the Beatles and Tom Petty.
“The Unauthorized have shared stages with or opened for some of the biggest names in Rock, including The Beach Boys, Elton John, Journey, Sheryl Crow, Molly Hatchet, Pete Best, Taylor Dayne, Gary Wright, Al Stewart, Ambrosia, Chaka Khan, and more,” according to the band’s press kit.
“Frontman and founder Rudy Colombini is widely regarded as the most visually accurate ‘Mick’ in the business and is also an accomplished original artist, having two of his recordings reach top 40 status in the Adult Contemporary category.”
The band has played venues including the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Great American Music Hall, PacBell Park and Hard Rock Cafe.
“They have become something of a legend in their home town of San Francisco,” according to the press materials. “Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown was quoted as saying ‘I love the Unauthorized Rolling Stones,’ and former Mayor and current Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom has expressed his love for the band many times.”
