Classic Stones Live
The acclaimed tribute band delivers a classic Stones experience. From the signature saxophone solo in “Brown Sugar” to the unforgettable backing vocals in “Gimme Shelter,” every last detail has been accounted for by this eight-piece band. Classic Stones Live performs all of the songs that are staples of any Rolling Stones show in original tunings. Front man Keith Call has all of the moves and swagger of Mick Jagger, and along with his partner in crime Bernie Bollendorf, who portrays rock and roll outlaw Keith Richards, they complete the duo notoriously hailed as “The Glimmer Twins”. Their resemblance to these two rock and roll icons adds to the overall concert effect, but what truly makes this band stand out is their musical prowess, attention to detail, and the spot on renditions of all of your favorite Rolling Stones classics. The band captures the raw energy of the most electrifying performances throughout The Rolling Stones career, and recreates the Stones in their legendary prime. Playing all of the hits that make up the soundtrack of so many people’s lives, they perform in true Stones style.

Members of the acclaimed chamber orchestra collaborate some of Long Island’s most promising young musicians. The Knights, a collective of adventurous musicians, is dedicated to transforming the orchestral experience and eliminating barriers between audiences and music. Driven by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, they ensemble inspires listeners with vibrant programs that encompass their roots in the classical tradition and passion for artistic discovery. The Knights evolved from late-night chamber music reading parties with friends at the home of violinist Colin Jacobsen and cellist Eric Jacobsen. The Jacobsen brothers, who are also founding members of the string quartet Brooklyn Rider, serve as The Knights’ artistic directors, with Eric Jacobsen as conductor. Committed to creating unusual and adventurous partnerships across disciplines, they perform in traditional concert halls as well as parks, plazas and bars — all in an effort to reach listeners of all backgrounds and invite them into their music making.
