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).


Litz Blitz 2021 recap 

The Stone Temple Posers played our second post-pandemic gig rocking Lits Blitz 2021 in Gardner MA last Saturday night. With the rain, mud, and power issues, this outdoor gig could have been a total disaster, but the diehard crowd went Woodstock, and made the event a blast! Thanks to Chris for organizing LB21, the other great tribute bands for playing (Five Against None, Bullet Called Life, and AD/HD), Bill for wrestling with sound and electrical issues, Sam for the new photographs that have been posted, and of course the crowd for supporting live music.  Our next show is Friday August 20 at Uncle Eddies (Salisbury, MA) where Song Garden: an acoustic tribute to Chris Cornell will also make an appearance. 

Back in the Saddle! 

Great to be back in the saddle again! Thanks go out to all our friends, family, and Plaistownians that hung with us Wednesday night at PARC to kick off the Plaistow Summer Music Series! Tom: thanks for running sound. Jen: thanks for having us once again. Next stop: Lits Blitz in Gardner on July 17!  

May 2021 Update 

The Stone Temple Posers will soon be rockin New England again!  We will be kicking off the Plaistow Summer Music Series June 23 (Wednesday) and will return to Lits Blitz on July 18 (Saturday).  The June date is free, outdoors, family-friendly, and an acoustic night.  For the July show in Gardner, MA, we will be teaming up with tributes to Pearl Jam, System of a Down, and AC/DC.  We have other dates in the works to be announced soon.  We look forward to playing for our STP fans soon.

Jan 2021 Update 

We haven’t provided an update to our website in a while due to COVID. Although we have been on hiatus, we intend to return when COVID allows. We are hopeful that 2021 will see a return of live music, and we intend to be part of the return. We are currently working on lining up shows for this summer. When we have shows lined up, we will provide more information.

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.

A shout out to all the folks who traveled long and short distances to hang out with us last Friday night at Gusto's Bar in Barre, VT.

Our next show will be at the Breakaway in Danvers, MA with All that 90’s (90s cover band).

Smells Like the 90's and Gustos 

We have loaded up some photos from this past weekend’s ‘SMELLS LIKE THE 90s’ show at the Portland House of Music. This show had been postponed from the weekend before due to snow, but we think it was worth the wait! Thanks to all that came out to support live music and enjoy the night of 90s rock that we dedicated to John ‘Yash’ Busta. 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.
