THE ROD EXPERIENCE

THE ROD EXPERIENCE

Featuring Rod's Collaborator & Drummer: Carmine Appice

"He was in my band because I found him to be a brilliant drummer. And he wouldn’t have been there if he wasn’t special. People love characters in Rock N Roll, and Carmine was a real character. He still is!!"
— Rod Stewart

“The crowd went wild. Creating an atmosphere of a real Rod Stewart concert. Some believed it was Rod himself.”

— Hard Rock Casino, NM 

“Best Rod Stewart Tribute Show— HANDS DOWN!!!! I’ve received an incredible amount of phone calls congratulating us for bringing in such a high-quality show to our amphitheater, some patrons actually believe they saw Rod Stewart in concert.”

— Zack Martin, CBS-FM New York

ABOUT THE ROD EXPERIENCE

ABOUT CARMINE APPICE AND THE SHOW

For seven years, Rod and Carmine were close collaborators writing, recording and thrilling millions of fans. Rod Stewart was at the very top of his game in terms of chart success, and sheer numbers of tickets sold worldwide. And by his side during those most crucial years was CARMINE APPICE.

After seeing a recent Rod Stewart concert, Carmine said: “I miss playing those songs live.” So he recreated the magic of that classic ROD STEWART show with THE ROD EXPERIENCE, which soon became an acclaimed Rod tribute starring Rick St. James as Rod Stewart. The show is so close to what fans experienced in that period of the late 1970s and early 1980s that the audience feel transported back to a time and place where the magic came alive for the first time.

Carmine has assembled a cracker-jack collection of top level players and even recreated the “All in white” look of Stewart’s stage design from those years. The set list features Rod Stewart’s biggest hits from that era, and the production includes multimedia elements and historical trivia.

Among the classics performed: “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”; “Young Turks” (both co-written with Appice); “Sailing”, “You’re In My Heart,” “”Passion,” “Tonight’s The Night,” “Hot Legs,” “Maggie May,” and many more!

THE ROD EXERIENCE — It’s not a tribute; it’s a trip back in time to the legendary period of Rod Stewart, created and spearheaded by a person who was part of it.

ABOUT RICK ST. JAMES

Generally regarded as the world’s finest performer to play Rod, St James looks the part; plays the part and most importantly, sings the part to a “T.”

“This guy does look me… the giveaway is he is shorter!”

— Rod Stewart, after seeing a photo of Rick on stage
