THE LEGEND LIVES ON - Deepest Purple brings you the very best of this
legendary band, performing all the classics from both line-ups on the
same night. Set 1 covers the best of Gillan / Glover era, and Set 2
features the best of Coverdale / Hughes - a unique combination, never
Not only is Deepest Purple faithful to the music, sounds and looks,
but they are also trying to recapture the atmosphere of the time with
instruments and stage costumes that closely resemble the early 70's.
They even include a costume change from Set 1 to Set 2 to illustrate
the transition from 1971/2 Purple to 1974/5.
Deepest Purple promises to be a unique experience for all Purple fans.
And for those who may never have experienced Purple the first time round,
this is a great opportunity to understand the true talent in an often
Wouldn't it be great if you could still see the original
Deep Purple Mkll line-up, featuring Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Ian
Paice, Jon Lord and Roger Glover, belting out their classic hits from
"In Rock", "Machine Head", "Made In Japan",
"Fireball" and more? And what if you could then follow that
with the Coverdale / Hughes line-up, responsible for classic tracks
such as "Burn" and "Mistreated"? On the same night,
at the same gig? The first scenario is pretty unlikely. Both occuring
at the same time is downright impossible. Until now.

GaGa The Ultimate Queen Tribute - GaGa was the first band to receive
permission from Queen's management to record Queen songs onto CD. Queen's
guitarist, Brian May, asked for a copy of their first CD entitled "A
Tribute to Queen" released back in 1995. He later stated that he
thought GaGa were excellent and stylish musicians.
GaGa has played in a diverse catalogue of shows with artists such as
Squeeze, Frank Skinner, Spice Girls, Space, Mike Reid, 911 and Lindisfarne.
The band do not dress up and for this they make no apologies. Those
expecting to see a band where the musicians look and dress like Queen
will leave the show sadly disappointed.
GaGa's two hour performances have built up an excellent reputation
with both fans and critics alike. This year should prove to be no exception.
With a fresh bass player, an even bigger, better light show, a sound
system to match and with audience participation encouraged throughout,
the show promises to be "a kind of magic".

in Signal Corps who heard him jamming at the local Army club. Fisher
then spent 2 years touring Europe with the 84th Army Band followed
by 2 years across the States with the "US Army Rock Band".
After the Army, Daniel received dual degrees in "Music Synthesis"
and "Music Production & Engineering" from Berklee College
in Boston. After spending several years as a Soundware Engineer for
Kurzweil Music Systems, Fisher went on to become the Director of Soundware
Engineering at Sweetwater Sound and headed the creation of over 20
CD-ROMs and synth programs for Kurzweil, Alesis, Korg, E-MU, Yamaha,
and TC Electronic. All Keyboards and Synthesizers used by the four
members of Pink Voyd were purchased from Sweetwater. Daniel Fisher
plays a fully-loaded KURZWEIL K2000VXS for synthesized and atmospheric
realizations. B-3 Organ parts are played on the "ROLAND VK-7".
Solo Synth Leads and Synth Strings performed on the amazing "NORD
MODULAR SYNTHESIZER" (Expanded to 32 Voices) and processed through
a "TC Electronic G-Force". Rhythm Guitar played on a PARKER
NiteFLY through a "LINE 6 POD 2.0" and a "LINE 6 AX212"
Amp with an extra "LINE 6 2x12 cab". Acoustic guitar output

strung right-handed. 1976 Fender Jazz bass. Current Model Jazz Bass
3/4 scale Precision Bass with active EMG electronics. Danelectro "Convertible"6-string
Guitar (Purple Metal Flake!). John plays through a: Boss GT-6B Bass
Processor; Shure Wireless System; Ampeg SVT-III Pro Head; AMPEG SVT
8X10 Cab; Ernie Ball Volume Pedal; Heet E-Bow; Furman RP-8L Power
Conditioner. Pitingolo loves his rig and hopes that someday he'll
figure out how to operate "all this f*@#$%NG gear." John
also creates amazingly cool graphics including most of the graphics
featured on band's web site.
TONY CALIENDO - Tony has been playing drums for most of his life,
and has both performed and taught on a professional level. With his
versatile drumming style and hi-tech equipment knowledge he has played
for bands, theatrical shows, state jazz band competitions and the
"Boston Music Scene". Tony has always loved Pink Floyd and,
with this project, strives to replicate the feel of multiple percussionists
using state-of-the-art equipment and lots of practice. "HIGH
HOPES" and "LEARNING TO FLY" are among Tony's favorite
Pink Floyd songs. He loves to sing and jam with his bandmates at every
practice & performance. He feels that the real challenge of achieving
the "Pink Floyd style" is imitating the sounds of the early
recordings without sacrificing the poetic style of the later music.
Tony's biggest goal is to chew up less "WOOD" at every show...
He's always got too much "sawdust" under his drum kit at
the end of a show... which might concern the "New England Tree
& Horticultural Society"! Tony Plays: Pearl Dual 24 Recording
Kick Drums; Staccato 8",10",13", and 15" custom

A BITE TAKEN OUT OF IT"; Kurzweil K2600 Rackmount Synthesizer

WALTER STICKLE - Walter Stickle is a quintuple threat; he plays guitars,
lap steel, both tenor and alto saxes, keyboards, and he sings. He's
like a packet of: "Instant Pink Floyd Powder" - Just add
Walter... He's spent most of his adult life playing original music
in projects ranging from Pop to Industrial, recording and producing
local bands, and composing Jazz, Classical and Ambient music for soundtracks.
Despite the diversity of these projects, Walter aproached them all
with a focus on the interplay between melody and textural soundscapes
which he attributes to years spent listening to Pink Floyd and the
playing of Dave Gilmour. Walter utilizes his experiences, electronics,
and even random household objects to help Pink Voyd capture not only
the songs, but the textural flavors and moods that make up Pink Floyd.

1998 Byron Jones, co-founder of the Counterfeit Stones
leaves after 7 years. "I had become disillusioned with their lack
of enthusiasm and real feeling for the Stones music. Set lists then
usually only included the basic numbers - for instance I was told that
there was no room for Midnight Rambler." Byron starts auditioning,
filmed by the BBC, for the Stones band of his dreams. After turning
away so many applicants the final line up wholly consists of musicians
recommended to Byron. "It's absolutely essential that every member
of the band is perfect if we are to become the best in the business."
After extensive rehearsals, lasting 6 months, Byron's Dream Team is
ready to roll. "They are all brilliant musicians as well as being
Stones fanatics, and they have the all important feel for the music.
So different from the Counterfeits. I couldn't be happier with this
1999 Rollin' Stoned hit the road and immediately earn
rave reviews. Early gigs include Pinewood Studios and the Theatre Royal
Windsor. Dates all over the UK quickly follow as word gets out that
there is a new band to rival even the original Stones.
2000 - the New Year kicks off with a private gig for
the family of the late Alexis Korner, without whom the Rolling Stones
may never have existed. Some of the Stones appear at the Half Moon,
Putney. Pat Andrews, Brian Jones' girlfriend from his Cheltenham days
and mother of his first son, joins the band on stage at the Worcester
Park Club. Pat is extremely impressed with their authenticity and enthusiasm.
A short visit to Portugal, backed by Carlsberg Lager, is followed by
a triumphant visit to Dartford; home town of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Keith's and Anita Pallenberg's daughter, Angela, is in the audience
and watches spellbound at the front of the stage. France, Belgium and
Germany fall next with a successful spot on German TV. Offers to return
come flooding in. Against all the odds the Stoned find themselves playing
in Windsor, an old haunt of the Rolling Stones, the very same night
as the Counterfeits who are not at all amused. Unconcerned, Rollin Stoned
again play to a full house and as always produce an awesome display.
The place was jumping all night long with no one ever wanting it to
end. Year 2000 winds up with prestigious bookings from Granada TV, Pinewood
Studios and The Times.
2001 - there is a lot of opinion around suggesting that The Stoned
would have cakewalked BBC's Battle of the Tribute Bands. An extremely
successful first booking for Butlins follows. They immediately sign
up the band for more appearances. Keith Richards's daughter, Angela,
sees the band again; this time bringing along Keith's mother, Doris,
who never stops dancing. Keith hears how good The Stoned are and promises
to check them out. A first trip to Ireland is another huge success.
Mel and Sue on BBC's London Live are extremely impressed; favourably
comparing the band to The Stones. A live performance, with interviews,
on Sky TV also goes really well. The Brian Jones 32nd Anniversary Show
at the 100 Club in London is a massive sell out. Connections of The
Stones, including family members, witness a fantastic performance. Numerous
highly favourable comparisons with The Stones are made. The band immediately
head for Europe for another sell out tour of Belgium and Germany. Gigs
continue to be sold out all over the UK. Have you seen The Stoned standing
in the shadows?
2002 - the first big event of the year is a 3 hour stormer. Planned,
in conjunction with the his fan club, Brian Jones 60th Birthday Party
gig at The Scala in London on 28 February is a major success. Carlo
Little, The Stones first choice drummer back in 1962/63, joins in on
Carol and Little Red Rooster. The Stoned perform at the opening night
of legendary photographer Gererd Mankowitz's London exhibition of Rolling
Stones photographs. The band complete a successful tour of Norway amid
demands to return to Germany as well as further requests to visit Canada
and the USA for the first time. In fact the website is being hit from
nearly 40 countries. The band round off 2002 with a brilliant series
of sold out Christmas Shows around the London area. Roll on 2003!
2003 - a very busy year with Stones mania taking place. When the Stones
pulled out of their first Twickenham gig the Stoned got the call to
stand in for the corporate events which the organisers couldn't cancel
at such short notice. Unfortunately the band had recently taken a late
booking for a gig in London that night. The band did do a number of
London gigs during the same period that the Stones were in town. The
highlight was the 100 Club night which was attended by lots of Stones
fans over from the USA who were very complimentary. Another highlight
was a midnight gig in the market square of a village in Belgium attended
by over 500 enthusiastic fans. The Half Moon, Putney residency proved
extremely popular with all nights sold out in advance.
