After Friday’s River Ranch show,let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
With the ultra-cool Rolling Stones look and sound, The Hollywood Stones will take Tahoe by storm on Friday, Sept. 28 at the River Ranch, three miles north of Tahoe City on Highway 89. It will be the final Renegade show of the summer series at the outdoor venue on the Truckee River. In case of bad weather, the show will be moved to the Sawtooth Ridge Café in Tahoe City.
The Hollywood Stones, formerly called Sticky Fingers, are a completely true live band. The same five-piece lineup has worked closely together for over a dozen years at hundreds of gigs for hardcore Rolling Stones’ fans.
Here’s a look at the Mick Jaggar and Keith Richards characters:
Dick Swagger — A Jagger impersonator without equal. He reproduces studio quality Mick Jagger vocals during his dead-ringer performance with all the legendary Mick moves and costumes.
Keef Riffoff — When you attempt to play like Richards you gotta mean it. Keef is serious about getting it right. From his rolling rhythm guitar, to his stage prowling presence; he is ready to rock. RIffoff — with four F’s — Now, back off.
Harley Watts — A lot of drummers say they can play like Charlie Watts. We know, we auditioned them. Harley is the best we’ve ever heard. He plays the pocket with that subtle, elusive Charlie groove. He’s a gentleman too. — Charlie Watts says so himself.
Rick Taylor — The guitar player’s guitar player. He does a great job covering Brian’s, Mick’s, and Ronnie’s parts. People come just to see him play those great solos! He went to high school with Keef, and they’ve been working on that “two guitar weave” for a long time.
Will Hyman — Teamed with Harley, they recreate that Rolling Stones pulse that gets your feet moving. Will is an extraordinary bass player with a powerful understated manner. The women love him.
