The Rolling Stones have long been hailed as The Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band in the World. But before they became the corporate machine that they are sometimes referred to as today, they earned this title by wowing audiences worldwide with some of the most electrifying performances in the history of rock-n-roll. Beginning with the recording of the classic album 'Beggar's Banquet' in the late 60's, the Rolling Stones would enter into what is widely considered to be their most creative period that would continue right up through the release of the album 'Exile On Main St.' You will be amazed at the way The Glimmer Twins are able to recreate the look and feel of The Rolling Stones during this period and beyond.
The Rolling Stones single handedly changed the way rock concerts were presented to large audiences when they kicked off their '69 U.S. Tour which is thoroughly documented in the movie 'Gimme Shelter'. By combining the raw energy of the band with the more sophisticated amplification systems for the times, The Stones were able to connect with their mass audiences in sold-out arenas on a whole new level. The Glimmer Twins will give you a close-up view and feeling of what it was like to be in the audience at one of these historical performances.
By 1972 their live performances were creating such frenzy, that many venues needed to utilize a lottery system in order to fairly distribute tickets because of the overwhelming demand. In subsequent years, the audiences kept increasing in size to the point where The Stones were selling out stadiums across the world. Everyone wanted to experience the sensation of seeing The Rolling Stones perform. What makes The Glimmer Twins such a special attraction is their ability to capture the raw energy of the most electrifying performances throughout The Rolling Stones career, and present it in such a way that audiences are able to experience the same sensation of what it was like to be at a Stones concert in their heyday. Because of the uncanny resemblances to Mick Jagger & Keith Richards in their prime coupled with the special attention given to the minutest details both musically and visually, The Glimmer Twins deliver a Classic Rolling Stones Experience to their audience.
bergenPAC is one of the selected venues to present Rock'n'Blues Fest tour, which features an impressive lineup of veteran artists, including The Johnny Winter Band, The Edgar Winter Band and Vanilla Fudge.
Among the other acts on the tour's bill are founding Rare Earth singer/drummer Peter Rivera and Savoy Brown frontman Kim Simmonds. Edgar Winter and his group have been part of the Rock'n'Blues Fest trek for all three years of its existence, while his brother Johnny's band and Simmonds both previously took part in the inaugural outing.
"I love getting together with the great players on this fantastic concert series," says Johnny Winter in a statement.
Adds Edgar, "My brother, the legendary Johnny Winter, is closing the show again this year. We really missed him last time and it's always a special occasion getting to jam with Johnny."
Vanilla Fudge singer/keyboardist Mark Stein, meanwhile, points out, "The last time Vanilla Fudge played with Johnny Winter was when he jumped up on stage with Janis Joplin and jammed with us at [1969's] West Palm Beach Pop Festival in Florida. I'm looking forward to playing with him and brother, Edgar...two rockin' bands!"
It's been nearly 20 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock 'n' roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock 'n' roll back -- back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins. Full of spit and swagger -- and a "dirty" sense of humor to boot -- Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl's live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract.
