CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Classic rock fans might have mixed emotions about seeing a Rolling Stones tribute show with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
"Satisfaction: The International Rolling Stones Show" comes to the Clay Center Friday and Saturday night, and Chris LeGrand, vocalist and bandleader for the tribute band, promised a high-energy show that's really the best of both worlds.
"We've got about 15 songs charted to do with the orchestra," the Texan said. "It's a lot of The Rolling Stones' hits, and we do a few songs with just the band and without the orchestra."
There will be enough there to make casual Rolling Stones fan happy.
"But the problem is they had so many songs. There are just some songs you won't hear," he said.
Purists might shake their heads. The music of The Rolling Stones accompanied by a symphony? LeGrand swears it all works.
"A great song is a great song," he said. "Whether you do it on an acoustic guitar or with an 80-piece orchestra."
LeGrand has played them both ways.
