They definitely got some satisfaction.

Hundreds of hardened Rolling Stones fans rocked and rolled to tributeers Sha Doobie during the season’s final summer concert in Marine Park on Aug. 24.

The band’s Mick Jagger-impersonating front man mirrored the singer’s cock-sure stage presence and even affected Jagger’s Kentish cadences, he said.

“I’m like a Mick Jagger impersonator, so whatever he does, I do,” said John Cadotte of (“Bay Ridge Nights” favorite) Sha Doobie. “I try to get the whole effect in there. I try to perform just like him — try to get it down pat, if he’s got a bit of an English accent in there in some of the songs. I’ve been listening for over 40 years.”

And the show — hosted by state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Marine Park) — was a reunion for two revelers who regularly dance together at the summer concert series, according to Felicia Juliano from Homecrest.

Juliano met rug-cutting pal Neil Zweier from Sheepshead Bay at a previous summer concert shindig when Zweier came up to her and just started shaking his hips, Juliano said.

“We danced all night, he didn’t even ask me, and we kept dancing and dancing and dancing,” she said. “He usually goes if I’m going. He just loves to dance and so do I. We had a good time.”

And since that concert, the happy-feet duo meet up at every show like it’s just another night, said Zweier.

“Felicia, my new lady friend. We just started dancing at the concerts. I enjoyed her company very much,” he said. “It was very good, Rolling Stones are excellent. The concert was great, I enjoyed it very much.”
