Come and join us in King's Heath as we celebrate the 52nd Anniversary of The Rolling Stones first ever appearance in Birmingham (UK) at the now sadly burnt down Ritz Ballroom.

Our day long RollKing Stones Fest 2015 will take place on Sunday 20 September starting with an Acoustic Session featuring top local musicians at Fletchers Bar from 3p.m. to 6 p.m and ending with The Stones performing a two hour show at 7.30 p.m. at the Hare & Hounds next door to the old ballroom.

Formed in London in 1962 by Brian Jones after he met up with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards who had been childhood friends, the Rolling Stones started out as a blues group taking their name from the title of a song by Muddy Waters. For the whole of 1962 they played exclusively in the London area. But all that changed on 7 June 1963 after they released their first single a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On". Just a few months later on 14 September 1963 they played one of their first ever gigs outside London and their first ever in Birmingham at King's Heath's Ritz Ballroom. Joining Brian, Mick and Keith on the tiny stage were Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. The day after they returned to London to play at the Great Pop Prom at the Royal Albert Hall! When they next returned to Birmingham they played the much larger Town Hall and Hippodrome before going on to become the world's greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world selling over 200 million albums.

From 3 to 6 pm some fine musicians will perform their interpretations of classic Rolling Stones songs at Fletchers Bar & Eatery. including local hero Rob Peters, roots rockers Mr Apollo, the young and very talented Tim Walkerdine and two groups specially formed for last year's event The Mighty Crawdaddies and Harmonica Bob and Oz who both played storming sets.

From 7.30 to 10.30 pm one of Europe's leading tribute bands The Stones will bring to the stage at the Hare & Hounds all the energy and excitement of a live Rolling Stones concert in a serious tribute to their music in a sensational climax to the One Day Fest.Their repertoire covers songs from all periods of the Rolling Stones career, but the majority of songs are from the 1960's and 70's

" The Rolling Stones, recreated to absolute perfection" (Winding Wheel Theatre, Chesterfield)
