TASTE THE PAIN -Red Hot Chilli Peppers Tribute

2nd April @ 9:30 pm - 11:55 pm


Taste The Pain was formed in Cork by four fans who were studying music in college together. We are all lifelong, die-hard fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Having played together in a number of different projects, we made the decision to celebrate our shared love of the Chillies by forming our tribute band.The next step was simple. Live, eat, sleep and breathe Red Hot Chili Peppers. Hours and hours were spent researching, studying and comparing different live versions of their hits, which we felt were more spontaneous and exciting. We studied their equipment (instruments, amps, pedals etc.) and use the same ourselves. We work tirelessly to replicate these songs as closely as possible. We want our shows to be as close as you can get to the real deal, right down to the last note.Our energy, just like the real Chili Peppers, is love, light and fun. We want you to dance, sing along, share our love for, and enjoy the classic songs of one of the most popular bands of all time!
