The Greatest Tribute to the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band! The Unauthorized have shared stages with or opened for some of the biggest names in Rock, including The Beach Boys, Elton John, Journey, Molly Hatchet, Pete Best, Taylor Dayne, Gary Wright, Al Stewart, Ambrosia, Chaka Khan, and more.
Frontman and founder Rudy Colombini is widely regarded as the most visually accurate "Mick" in the business and is also an accomplished original artist, having two of his recordings reach top 40 status in the Adult Contemporary category. Watching Rudy Colombini channel the energy and raunchy, on-stage antics of Mick Jagger is exhilarating. For those looking to enjoy the experience of a live Stones concert up close, there is no better entertainer.
But for those who know Rudy as the songwriter, artist, tireless advocate for the arts, and spiritual person that he is, recreating Jagger’s legendary stage swagger is but one aspect of this complex man.
The Unauthorized played the Rolling Stones's 40th Birthday VIP Party, and have performed at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Great American Music Hall, PacBell Park, Hard Rock Cafe, Harrah's Reno, Tahoe, Las Vegas, and have been featured live on KFOX, KFOG, and KRON 4 TV.
They have become something of a legend in their home town of San Francisco. Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown was quoted as saying "I love the Unauthorized Rolling Stones," and former Mayor and current Lt.Governor Gavin Newsom has expressed his love for the band many times.
The Unauthorized won the San Francisco Bay Guardian's pick as Best Local Cover Band. Singer. Producer Rudy Colombini is the owner of Music City SF a musical space and recording studio in San Francisco.
