Shannon Brink- Keith Richards

Shannon’s parents bought him a guitar at age 11, and he was immediately obsessed. He was deeply inspired by the biggest Rock bands of the 70’s. Shannon drew inspiration, not just from the virtuoso guitar playing, but also from the mesmerizing showmanship of bands like KISS and The Rolling Stones.

​By the time he turned 18, Shannon had moved to Las Vegas where his band had a record contract and was supporting a nationally released CD. Since moving to Florida, Shannon has played in several successful bands and in great venues, including the Kravis Center opening for Charlie Daniels with the Emily Brooke Band.

​When you see and hear Shannon perform, you know that he gives 100%. His effervescent performances ensure everyone present has a great time. And now he brings that viral energy to Start Me Up! to embody Keith Richards. As Shannon puts it, “It’s fun playing the Keith Richards part because he really knows how to connect and entertain the audience both sonically and visually.” As do you, Shannon!

Ron Hersey - Ronnie Wood

A Florida native, Ron credits his parents, who were gospel singers, for his love of music. His father, a guitarist, showed him how to play and his mother taught him to harmonize. Hersey began singing in the church choir at an early age.

When he finally settled down, he chose New York, calling it home for twenty-five years and playing four nights a week plus working a professional day job. Guy moved to Florida and is excited to be playing drums for the greatest Stones tribute band – Start Me Up!

Scott Borgmeyer - Bill Wyman

Appearing as bassist Bill Wyman, Scott is a South Florida Native who began taking piano lessons at the age of 5. After dabbling with the piano, drums and lead guitar, Scott realized he has "sausage fingers", and was better suited for the bass guitar.

​By the age of 14, Scott was already performing with a band playing rock, disco and TOP 40 hits. By the Summer of his junior year in high school, he was performing in Night Clubs six days a week. Looking back, Scott wonders how he managed to pull this off with such conservative parents!

​After high school, for many years, Scott primarily focused on his career in Corporate Finance, but ultimately returned to his passion of playing music at Events and Night Clubs with several top South Florida bands. "The Rolling Stones are one of my favorite bands and I'm super excited to be playing along side such a tremendous assemblage of musicians and singers"!
