Stenade Rullarna (Stoned Rollers) are Swedens longest going Stonescoverband, and even if most members changed over all the years, their long, and true loveaffair with the Stones is still the same. If you get the chance, go see them. A good time is had by all, rest assured.

Jazzhuset was crowded, and when the band went on, they let everybody know who was in charge of the evening. A hard as a rock version of SFM opened, followed by Keith´s signature tune, Happy. By that time I was already completly lost in the music, and many with me. Sway followed, wich is a tune the Stones themselfs dusted off for their current tour.
First chance to breathe came with a excellent version of Wild Horses, followed by Not Fade Away, Paint It Black (such a crowdpleaser) and , Carol, wich sent people dancing. The set was rounded of with Sympathy For The Devil, wich is where I think Stefan Bellnäs, the bassplayer really drives the song, together with drummer Dan. The engine room, as Keith would say.


After a short break, the honorary guest of the evening, legendary swedish rocker, Mats Ronander entered the stage. For those who don´t know who he is, let´s just say, he used to tour with ABBA. He played his mean , signature bluesharmonica on some tunes, and guitar on some. Highlights for me during his set was to hear Till The Next Goodbye, and Midnight Rambler. Other excellent ones were Rooster, Dead Flowers, and Queenie.

After a short break, were Mats had to say goodbye, the band was exhausted, but decided to do a third, final set, with only ballads! Bold move, but it worked really good, the audience needed to calm down before going home. Very nice to hear Backstreet Girl, a nice surprise, and so was Losing My Touch.

Overall, I must say, I am most impressed with the sound of the band, it sounds rough and dirty. Special mention to Magnus Hartelius, whom with Kent performs a lethal Taylor/Richards-sound not heard since 1973. All the band deserves mentioning, 5 excellent musicians.
