Mick Adams and the Stones - BAND
THE WORLD'S MOST AUTHENTIC TRIBUTE TO THE ROLLING STONES
Mick Adams as Mick Jagger
Mick Adams' incredible voice, range and power speak for themselves. Born in Columbus, Ohio, Mick began singing at three years old. By the age of eight, he was the only child singing with the local adult church choir. While in high school, he studied voice under Elizabeth Graham and was a featured soloist in the high school choir. Mick continued his vocal education studying voice under Ben Bollinger whose other notable students included Karen and Richard Carpenter.
Not only is Mick Adams a ringer for Mick Jagger, he brings Mick Jagger's intense energy to each performance. As a former lead vocalist for Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods, where he performed for Dick Clark, Mick has toured the country with the likes of Tommy James, The Turtles, The Monkees, The Association, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Buckinghams, Herman's Hermits, Ron Dante, the Rascals and more. Other notables that Mick has performed with include Spencer Davis, Rick Springfield, Johnny Rivers, Neil Sedaka, America, and rock and roll hall-of-famer Sam Moore.
Mick has recorded with Mark Kendall of Great White as well as Ronnie James Dio's guitarist, Tracy G, and has done voice over work for MADD TV. He has also performed on various telethons, including Betty White’s pet telethon, Jerry Lewis’ MS telethon and many others. Mick's band, Mick Adams and The Stones, has performed for everyone from Brad Pitt, Will Ferrell, Leslie Bibb, David Spade, Amy Adams, Flava Flav, Jack McBrayer, Judd Apatow, as well as Mark Cuban. They have been featured on National television multiple times, toured Internationally, and have appeared on and recorded for AXS televisions, The World's Greatest Tribute Bands. They have also been named one of the top ten tributes in the world by Backstage 360 magazine. Mick is endorsed by Mark Cuban, Ryan Seacrest and former President of Atlantic Records, Jerry Greenberg, who signed The Rolling Stones.
Shane Hunter as Keith Richards
Shane began as a drummer at ten years old and played his first bar gig by the time he was fourteen. By sixteen, he had switched to guitar. As soon as Shane graduated high school he was off, making a living playing music, performing in a wide variety of cover bands touring the midwest and and Texas. By the end of the 80’s, Shane decided to stay in Los Angeles and formed a rock and roll band. While playing the clubs on the Sunset Strip, he was lucky enough to catch the ear of world famous producer and engineer, Andy Johns, who recorded The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, and Jimi Hendrix to name a few. Andy gave Shane incredible insight to his favorite rockers especially Keith Richards! Shane spent countless hours with Andy Johns, the man that recorded Exile on Main Street. He absorbed the secrets, the riffs, the guitars, the amps, the settings, the mics and mic placements, the tunings, the story's etc., like a sponge. The time with Andy changed Shane, both as a musician and as a fan. Shane continued in the music business and has been signed by Enigma Records, Capitol Records and Zoo Records and has owned and operated his own studios. He has also recorded and played with countless incredible musicians. Throughout the years Shane has often wondered why he was put in this position to learn all these things first hand from a man that was there with Mick and Keith when the magic happened and is happy to say that now, being a member of Mick Adams and the Stones, it all makes perfect sense.
Vince Lupo as Charlie Watts
Vince Lupo’s (as Charlie Watts) musical experience starts right at the same time of the British Invasion and in particular the beat supplied by Charlie Watts for a new group called The Rolling Stones. Degrees in music and psychology, combined with bringing a sound ‘ear’ to the table, enables him to help shape the rhythmic textures and rocking backbeats of all those Stones classics. It doesn’t hurt that Vince resembles the real Wembley Whammer, either. Many can play but few can actually recreate Charlie’s feel quite like Vince does! Vince has been featured on AXS TV's, The Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands; along with Mick Adams and has recorded for itunes for AXS TV's, The Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands with Mick Adams and The Stones as the World's Greatest Rolling Stones Tribute Band!
Ron Jessurun as Ronnie Wood
Born in Amsterdam, Netherlands and raised in California, Ron developed an early love for music and was born to play! Ron graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology, class of '85 and has played in many bands since that time. He has played on tour with Cirque du Soleil on the DRALION show and has opened for such notables as The Winery Dogs, Michael Schenker Group, Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders as well as Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult. Ron is also a luthier, plays mandolin, recorder and the dulcimer! Ron's skillful guitar playing has quickly earned him the nickname, "Note for Note Ronnie" and has made him and awesome fit for Mick Adams and The Stones.
Marvin Sperling as Bill Wyman
Marvin Sperling is a dynamic bass player who's performed and recorded with a wide range of artists. As a child, Marvin played violin and guitar but due to early influences such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, he soon discovered his true instrument was the bass guitar. Marvin has played, produced and recorded for over forty years with artists such as Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, Kelly Hanson of Foreigner and Heaven and Earth as well as Robert Fleischman of Journey and Paul Shortino of Quiet Rio and King Kobra. You can catch Marvin now emulating one of his favorite bassists, Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones. His passion for Bill's style and sound are quite evident as well as his attention to detail making him a perfect match for Mick Adams and The Stones
