There are tribute bands, and there are tribute bands. In the musical stratosphere, in addition to musical units vying for credibility points based on their original music, there is a subgenre of tribute bands grappling for attention and validation of their own kind of “authenticity” in representation. Satisfaction is the Rolling Stones tribute performance that has garnered enough popularity that, this summer, the band is hosting a Norwegian Cruise line tribute cruise.

In the case of a frontman like Mick Jagger, it’s not enough just to don the attire and learn the riffs. You’ve gotta have some real stage moves, in addition to the iconic voice and looks that have been humorously described as separated at birth from Don Knotts, but sexier. This group has had plenty of time to get the act down, together since 2001 playing more than 1,500 shows. You might not be able to scope out needle marks on this ersatz “Keef’s” arm, but otherwise, it’s hard to tell them from the real thing.

Satisfaction @ The Egyptian Theatre, Jan.7-8, 8 p.m., 328 Main St., Park City, 435- 649-9371
