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).


In the 90s, four iconic voices (Layne, Kurt, Scott, and Eddie) ripped it up with their bands AIC, Nirvana, STP, and Pearl Jam, and they called it GRUNGE.  On July 20th, as part of SMELLS LIKE GRUNGE! and only at the Jewel Music Venue Manchester NH, the Stone Temple Posers will be joined by three other tributes to these legendary bands fronted by some locally iconic and uber-talented frontmen.  SMELLS LIKE GRUNGE! will feature the following tribute bands: Rotten Apple, Priceless Advice, and Yellow LedVedder, along with the Stone Temple Posers.  If you like grunge, you will not want to miss this show.  Get tickets early and save money.

Happy Fourth of July! 

The Stone Temple Posers kicked off the 2019 Plaistow Town Common music series acoustically last Wednesday evening (6/26/19) with a night full of STP hits under sunny skies. It was cool and humbling to receive such a warm response from all those that came out to spend the evening with us, both young and old. We especially loved seeing all the families enjoying themselves on such a great summertime evening out. Thanks to Randy for running sound. If you saw us for the first time last night, we hope you enjoyed the unplugged grunge diversion. If, however, you crave a more raucous STP experience, you’ll have to look for us at SMELLS LIKE GRUNGE! on July 20 at the Jewel Music Venue in Manchester NH, where we will be joined, fully amped, by three other great tribute bands including Yellow Ledvedder, Priceless Advice, and Rotten Apple.  In the mean time: Happy July Fourth!

Dancing Days Summer Tour Announced 

The Stone Temple Posers have released the dates to their Dancing Days Summer Tour including: June 26 at the Plaistow NH Town Common, July 20 at SMELLS LIKE GRUNGE! at the Jewel Music Venue (Manchester, NH), August 24 at the Portland House of Music (Portland, ME), and September 14 at LITS BLITZ at the Lithuanian Beach Club (Gardner, MA).  Hope to see you this summah!
