A red hot tribute
Last updated at 14:13, Thursday, 31 May 2012
THE UK’s number one Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band will play a headline set in Ulverston next week.
The cunningly-named Hot Red Chili Peppers are without question the most successful send-up of the Los Angeles funk rock pioneers.
Looking and sounding just like the real thing, the Midlands-based act have played at Glastonbudget and Tribfest – England’s two biggest tribute band festivals – taking to the stage in front of up to 7,000 people.
Next Friday, June 8, they headline at the Coronation Hall where they will be playing a full set featuring the famous hits Californication, Under the Bridge, Scar Tissue and By the Way, as well as material from the American outfit’s recent album I’m With You.
The band comprises of Mic Smith on vocals, brothers Ray and Chris Green on bass and drums, and guitarist, Rob Mills, who used to be in metal outfit Diamond Head, and toured UK arenas with Megadeth in 2005.
Support on the night comes from local carnival drum band The Deatbeats and Torbay-based rock outfit Insonify.
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the venue’s box office.
lNext Thursday, Hot Red Chili Peppers will also be playing a special one-off acoustic show at a charity night in Barrow.
Half the band will make an early trip to Furness to perform a stripped-back set at the night at The Nines, in Dalkeith Street, to raise money for the Bluebell Foundation.
Collie Stewart will also be performing his solo set and there will also be an appearance from acoustic duo Harriet and Joe.
Pete Thompson will host the event, and there will also be a disco, a raffle, a buffet and an auction, with all proceeds going to charity.
Tickets priced £5 are available from the venue or by calling Mark on 01229 343392.
