Funky Monks~9pm

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, we’ve had the privilege of playing at venues all across the U.S. as well as internationally. From bar gigs to college fraternity parties and campus events to private parties to city festivals, Funky Monks have traveled all around to entertain fellow Peppers fans.

We are fans playing for fans, and every show is a celebration. While offering selections from a growing catalog 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 of 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, Frusciante and Klinghoffer together all in one show…you won’t find a more accurate tribute to the Red Hot Chili Peppers!

Wayland w/ On My Six, Faith in Vain and 99 Proof Devils~ Doors at 7pm

Over the last few years the genre of rock has been pulled in so many different directions, leaving timeless vocal melodies and guitars to become far and few between. Wayland naturally possesses these qualities and more. Formed in 2010, The band was soon signed to Kiefer Sutherland’s Iron Works Records by hit singer/ song writer/ producer Jude Cole. Managed by Jesse James Dupree, Wayland released their first single “Welcome To My Head” which experienced high ranking on Mainstream and Active Rock charts. The follow up charting single “Reno” began to showcase Wayland’s diverse influences, from huge vocal harmony reminiscent of classic rock icons like Journey and Queen, and thick crunchy guitar riffs and pounding drums leaning on the hard rock side of the spectrum. With the release of 2014s “Get A Little” the band’s music video for the song went viral online bringing in massive social media and YouTube numbers, causing the song to hit #6 on ITunes Rock charts. 2016 brought the Active Rock radio hit single “Bloody Sunrise” taking the band into almost 5 straight years of non-stop touring, boasting 250+ shows a year. There’s no signs of Wayland slowing down any time soon. A full length album is expected in 2017 followed by a full tour in support of the release.
