SohoJohnny got his satisfaction on at the Ridgefield Playhouse…
If you like stones, you would have enjoyed this show . However, The lead singer was seemingly overacting the part of Mic Jagger . He was jumping up and down like an aerobic instructor on too much caffeine . He cd not hit some of the correct keys of a song BUT did his own impressions. The overall tempo seemed also sped up like playing old Stones records at a high record player speed.
The song list was well picked.
Overall the show was entertaining but if you are a true Stones loyalist you might think it fell short but just a little.
