Taste the Pain – Red Hot Chilli Peppers Tribute

22nd October 2022 @ 9:30 pm - 23rd October 2022 @ 12:30 am


Celebrating the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, spanning twelve studio albums across nearly forty years, Taste The Pain are an exciting and energetic tribute to the titans of LA Funk Rock! Foregoing the studio recordings, and instead taking the Chillies’ legendary live performances and jams as their inspiration, you can expect an energetic and authentic show that reflects the manic musicality and jam-driven sound of the Chillies at their live peak!

Formed by a number of session musicians (and dedicated Chillies fans) in Cork in 2014, Taste The Pain are constantly refining and perfecting their set with passion, and attention to detail.

If you’re a Chillies fan, or a fan of any good, loud, funky rock music, come check out a show! We’ll do our best to rock your socks off…
