Rolling Stones Tribute Concert by U.S. Stones – April 25 @ Gill Dawg

The U.S. Stones are the only Rolling Stones Tribute Band to have a young, in his prime, Mick Jagger clone with all the moves and signature voice and are configured like the real Stones Touring show. Their Keith Richards is “dead on” and their Ron Wood gets mobbed because he looks just like the real deal. This is like seeing the Stones in the mid-70s – 80s at the height of their career!

U.S. Stones is an 8 piece band with keys, horns and more, just like the real thing, no tracks and as authentic as it gets. It’s an amazing full sounding Rolling Stones event that will blow you away with hit after hit!
