"...I think I lost the button to my trousers..." Crazyfish

Hey, blogspot readers, SouthSide's reviewing rock gods tonight! Well, not actually the real legends of rock who have charted hits such as Angie and Satisfaction. HOWEVER this Italian tribute band came close enough giving this reviewer another rockin' taste of Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones. She has seen the actual Stones themselves perform live as well as other tribute bands (i.e. Beggars Banquet) before. So she was ready to put Crazyfish to the test during their double set performance at the Double Door's Dirtroom. Opening for Mick (wonderfully portrayed with all the right Mick movements and expressionisms by Domenico) were local rockers Steve Stone (www.therealstevestone.com or www.myspace.com/stevestonemusic) and The Black Oil Brothers (www.theblackoilbrothers.com or www.myspace.com/theblackoilbrothers).
…….

SouthSide was somewhat disappointed that the other members of Crazyfish didn't "dress up" as their respective Rolling Stones counterparts. However, blogspot readers, this rockin' Italian tribute band did have all of the thrills, excitement, and enthusiasm (as well as kisses) of a Stones' show. Fans were delighted to hear great hits such as Get Off My Cloud, Dead Flowers, Paint It Black and Sympathy For The Devil ...plus many more to sing and dance along to….

Besides the classic standards, Crazyfish also wowed the audience with soulful renditions of Not Fade Away (a Buddy Holly cover) and Just My Imagination (a Temptations cover) which featured Rodney Johnston of Sticky fingers (another Stones tribute band) joining Mick on vocals. The highlight of the night for SouthSide was when Mick sang As Tears Go By in Italian before closing out the performance with Honky Tonk Women. Though not hearing other classics (and SouthSide's favorites) like Ruby Tuesday, Satisfaction, or Under My Thumb performed tonight, she does highly recommend checking out the Italian sensation known as Crazyfish while they're rockin' across the US! Just don't tell SouthSide's boyfriend that Mick kissed her (twice). For more information and tour dates, visit … www.domenicoscola.com

Bio

Domenico Scola is the only Italian American singer songwriter in Roma.

Inspired mainly by the legends of classic rock, Domenico intertwines the rebellion of the Rolling Stones with the introspective poetry of Bruce Springsteen.

Born and raised in Haddon Heights, New Jersey (USA) (a Stones throw from Philadelphia) Domenico is now based in Roma where he has been captivating the capital’s audiences for over a decade…

Throughout his whole life, Domenico has participated in various musical groups and in 2004 he became the frontman of The Stoners, a legendary Rolling Stones tribute band.
The desire to perform his own tunes on the stage led Domenico to create his own band.

Domenico offers the listener music about life, its ups and downs and the people one meets along the way.
His music is arranged with various musician friends. All the lyrics and melodies come from his own heart.

Scola performs live in various formations but most commonly with Giancarlo Sabatini and Marco Capecelatro on the acoustic guitars. For some live concerts, they also have drums and bass.
