Welcome

The Stone Temple Posers are a STP Tribute band based out of Plaistow, New Hampshire, and this is our official website.  Please visit our Facebook page and "like" us and/or join our email list for monthly emails with updates and exclusive content.  We play 100% pure STP!  Although we have enough material to play a whole night, we often will share the night with one or more other great local tribute/original/cover bands.  For smaller and more intimate venues, we can perform a whole unplugged acoustic set of STP.  So if you are a venue in New England, contact us; if you are a fan, come see us.    If you are a venue looking for a demo video, please go to our EPK page; audio is on our Audio page.  We are also on ArtistBomb.com.  Our guitars/basses are expertly serviced by Chris from Black Cat Guitar (blackcatguitar.com).


Shows to be Rescheduled 

As the ‘15 days to stop the spread’ turns into 45, our hearts go out to all those impacted by this virus from China. God bless the doctors, nurses, and emergency response people on the front line. Live music may have been been put on hold to focus on flattening the curve for the moment, but these days of isolation too shall pass. We are rescheduling our April and May shows, and look forward to rockin with you later on this year. You can’t keep the Stone Temple Posers quiet forever.

Next Show: the Vault in New Bedford, MA April 11 

Another fine evening of grunge last Saturday night at Champions Sports Bar in Biddeford ME playing to a near-packed house. Big thanks to our friends from Yellow LedVedder for inviting us; Ben, Jason, Andy, Pete, and Ryan never disappoint with their Pearl Jam show - why go home? Gotta love the grunge-lovin fans of Maine! Thanks to the club for their northern hospitality and Craig for running sound/lights. New photos to be uploaded soon courtesy of Ben. Our next show will be April 11 at the The Vault Music Hall & Pub at Greasy Luck in New Bedford MA.

Our friends Priceless Advice and Yellow LedVedder once again knocked it out of the park. Thanks for all the new FB likes, of course the venue for having us, and Ryan for mixing sound.

It had been over 12 years since the Nerve played together, and time has shown that Alan can still bring it! ... maybe another reunion in 12 more years? Thanks also to Bill Mitchell and Dave Sword for their guest appearances. Bill was a founding member of the Nerve and will soon be out with his latest project “Plan B”. Bassman Dave has played with John and Paul in various bands and nailed Tool’s Sober.
