STREETFIGHTER Rolling Stones Tribute
...The absolute BEST ROLLING STONES SHOW, PERIOD!
Established in 1978 as Long Island's answer to the Broadway production of BEATLEMANIA, The band was conceived to capture the music, spirit, and look of the world's greatest rock and roll band, replete with period correct clothing, playing songs from three distinctively major evolutions of Rolling Stones music;
1964-68 Chuck Berry & the blues to psychedelic: "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" to "Ruby Tuesday"
1969-73 Revolutionary & the Political: "Street Fighting Man" to "You Can't Always Get What You Want"
1973-present: Still Rockin'! "It's Only Rock and Roll But I Like It"!
Pete VerEecke: Original founding member and JAGGER extraordinaire, Pete thrills the crowd with his energetic aura. If you didn't know otherwise, you'd swear it was Mick on stage singing!
Rev. Elroy P. Jones III: Original founding member, lead/rhythm guitar & vocals. Originally the KEITH of the band, he decided to check into rehab and clean up his act, [just kidding, folks...] Now the Good Reverend is covering the Brian Jones/Mick Taylor/Ron Wood riffs. Elroy once had the distinct honor of playing guitar behind the legendary CHUCK BERRY!
Mark Rothman: Member of the band since the beginning, Mark has taken over the "KEITH" guitar parts, and helps to sonically and visually recreate the Stones' sound and look. An EXPERT on ALL things 'Keith', his meticulous attention to detail extends down to the very guitars played by the legendary rock & roll icon, even BUILT by the same luthier, Mr. Ted Newman Jones.
Brad Singer: Drums. Without his rock solid “Sock-You-In-The-Gut” drumming, there could be no "Ultimate Stones Show". Brad [together with Bob], was a founding member of another legendary L.I. band, FULL HOUSE.
Bob Sole: Bass guitar/vocals. Providing the sonic bottom, Bob expertly arranges the vocal harmonies, and basically keeps it all together! Additionally, as a side note, Bob plays in another great L.I. band (along with Brad, Elroy and Ruth) called ROCKDADDY, currently gigging around the Island.
Ruthy Hopkins: Keyboards. Ruthy finishes up Streetfighter’s incredible sonic realism by recreating every acoustic and electric piano, Hammond organ, and orchestral instrument. Ruthy covers all the instrumentation that makes you feel like you’re listening to the original Rolling Stones records.
