Why pay a fortune to see ants in a stadium when for a fraction of the price you can get up close and smell the faking brilliance of the Counterfeit Stones. Their latest shakedown, SATISFiCTION promises another night of pure, unadulterated Xerox-rock.

Now in their 26th year, these pie-eyed pipers continue to deliver the best Rolling Stones’ “rusical ” on the circuit.

Packed with big hits, retro fashion, vintage guitars and a huge dollop of “Spinal Tap” humour, it’s SATISFiCTION guaranteed.

So “Come On”  all you Honky Tonks and Get Yer Doo Dahs Out !

IT’S PHONEY ROCK ‘N’ ROLL  AND YOU’LL LIKE IT!

  

The Counterfeit Stones celebrate over a quarter of a century of master forgery with yet another glam-bake, SATISFICTION.

“The Most Famous Stones Band In England” as quoted by Sir Mick Jagger himself, are touring the UK with a new riff packed show that’s set to leave their fans gasping.

This skilfully mixed cocktail of classic hits, retro costume and humour continues to intoxicate young and old alike – 100% proof that a good shot of copy-rock always hits the target. This is the band to give a huge dose of nostalgia for those who were there and an education for those who weren’t.

 

 

The show is essentially a mockumentary of the Rolling Stones’ colourful history and as well as perfect renditions of their greatest hit songs includes a series of spoof film clips depicting real and imagined events.

2017-stones-5

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus; that famous drug bust with the girl in a rug; the search for Brian Jones’ replacement; being exposed as a scam on TV. These mini-movies have been originally produced and conveniently cover the costume and set changes presenting a visual feast that transcends five decades.

 

 

 

Not only have Nick Dagger, Keef Rickard, Bill
Hymen, Charlie Mott and the Unholy Trinity of Bryon Jones/Mick Tailor-Made/Ronnie B. Goode been thrilling sold-out crowds around the globe for 25 years
but are regularly invited to play post tour parties (Oasis, Motorhead, Phil Collins); support spots (Barry Manilow, Iggy Pop, ZZ Top,); posh dos (Bill Clinton, Prince Edward, Sir Tim Rice); corporate bashes (Microsoft, Vodafone, Jack Daniels) and ironically a function on board an aircraft carrier in San Diego for 6000 lawyers attending a conference on counterfeiting.

Such is the accuracy of the band that they were chosen to play the soundtracks on Stephen Wooley’s feature film STONED and a Channel 4 documentary on the Rolling Stones’ early years with Brian Jones.

Fakin’ brilliance

It’s Phoney Rock ‘n’ Roll but a real bargain!
