Right now for me the sound hasn't seemed to "matured" but i'm sure that will happen through time as you guys play together more.

You all need to wear fewer clothes and contort your faces more if you really want to be taken seriously as an RHCP cover band.

Also, if you're going to play covers, maybe think of an original name or one that band insiders would know. I heard a Black Sabbath tribute band called Bit of Finger and it's a great name if you know about Black Sabbath. Another Black Sabbath band is called Pissed At Ringo. Naming yourselves after their most popular album seems too obvious.

Sorry to sound so mean, but as you can tell, I'm not too fond of cover bands, although I do credit you with the 'nads to put yourselves up here for comment. You guys are technically proficient enough to play other stuff - maybe even your own stuff. Do you do any original music at all?

sucks man, its gonna be hard to find someone who can do what anthony does, but then again it was probly pretty hard to find people who can do what Flea, John, and Chad do too... RHCP are an effin' hard band to cover well, cause everybody knows them, and everybody knows how good they are. When I saw them play with the Mars Volta a year and a half ago there well all kinds of people there middle-aged, little kids, teen-agers, young adults, you name it there were there. I wish you luck with this though man...

If your singer wasn't so flat, you guys might have something special.

yeah that is the problem, the singer for me is a bit flat, and Deathmetalconga remember this is a tribute band, not a covers band. there is a big difference, but your right mate........we went with this name because we want to appeal to the masses, as in even people who half like the Chili's............radio fans to hardcore, here's our set list, covers from the beginning to the present

Fouronsix your right and one of the problems is the singer is such a nice bloke and full of drive, he's really kept this going...........I seem to be the only one who thinks the singers voice maybe a concern!!!!

Any other comments, I agree and at at least you guys have been constructive so far, thanks for that

the part that sucks is that he's not that bad, but he's not that good either... It might work with him if he can let loose a little bit more. It seems like he's trying to hard to imitate Anthony and not putting anything of his own on there. He's not going to be Anthony and you aren't going to be Chad. You seem to know that, maybe you should let him in on it?

yeah it seems more technique than anything, if he doesn't have a mic he sings pretty good, get the band blasting then he's pushing his voice to be heard or not letting the mic do the work and that is when it goes to ground..............literally

This kind of thing happens when everyone in the band buys instruments and accessories guaranteed to "cut/punch/blast/slash through the rest of the band." Something has to give and often it's the vocalist.

The RHCP have a lot of finesse as musicians and relied as much on technique and mood as raw volume. You guys need to play together a lot more and discuss your volume balance but you could attain that kind of polish, where you vocalist could concentrate more on singing and less on yelling.
