Funky Monks is America’s premier Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band, playing all the RHCP radio favorites plus the great punk & funk classics that helped put the multi-Grammy winning Peppers on the map. Since formed in 2003 by bassist Jeff Genualdi (Jefflea), we’ve had the privilege of playing at venues as far as Dominican Republic, Mexico, California, Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Las Vegas. From bar gigs to college fraternity parties and campus activities board events to private parties to city festivals, Funky Monks have traveled all around to entertain fellow RHCP fans. We are fans playing for fans, and every show is a celebration. While offering a growing catalogue of 80+ songs, we focus on giving our audience the same live experience they would expect from a real Peppers concert – stage energy, crowd interaction, funky live jams, random surprise covers and of course all their biggest hits. Our goal is to make everybody in the venue forget for just a moment that they are watching a tribute band. With uncanny Anthony vocals, funky Flea-style bass, Chad’s heavy-hitting rock style to a guitarist who can bring Slovak, Navarro and Frusciante together all in one show….you won’t find a more accurate tribute to the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
