All Wood and Stones
Acoustic Guitars and Rolling Stones Songs by John Batdorf & James Lee Stanley
Friday, May 16, noon - 1 p.m.
Lloyd D. George United States Courthouse inside the Jury Assembly Room- 333 Las Vegas Blvd South


Fans of Crosby Stills & Nash, Buffalo Springfield, Rubber Soul, the Eagles, or classic Beach Boys harmonies are in for a real treat.

Can you imagine what the Rolling Stones songs would have sounded like if Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were California boys with acoustic guitars? Would Satisfaction, Ruby Tuesday, or Last Time have been as powerful if they had been played on acoustic guitars and filled with vocal harmonies? Curious?

So were James Lee Stanley and John Batdorf, purveyors of acoustic rock music for decades. They took 21 Rolling Stones classics and turned them into something totally unheard of. You don't have to live in California or play acoustic guitar to be enchanted by "All Wood and Stones" ... an amazing collection of Rolling Stones tunes played on acoustic guitars and brimming with joyous vocal harmonies.
