[The] Stone Temple Posers sound exactly like [the] Stone Temple Pilots.”

Stone Temple Posers

The Stone Temple Posers are a Stone Temple Pilots (a.k.a., STP) Tribute band based out of Plaistow, New Hampshire. They were originally formed in the latter half of 2014 and consist of four devoted STP fanatics. With this lineup of committed STP disciples, you can't go wrong with the Stone Temple Posers.

The aim of the Stone Temple Posers is to re-create the awesome music that STP is known for. Our ultimate goal is to play the hits and other gems from each of STP's nine albums. From the early grunge Core and Purple albums, through the glam rock Tiny Music, No. 4 and Thank You albums to the post grunge psychedelic era Shangri-la dee da, 2010, and 2013 albums, and their 2018 and 2019 releases with Jeff Gutt, their catalog rocks!  We also pay homage to Scott's side-project Velvet Revolver and STP's cover of Zepplin's Dancin Days.

Come experience the megaphone intro to Dead and Bloated, the searing guitar solos in Piece of Pie, the harmonies in Sour Girl and Creep, the catchy bass riffs on Interstate Love Song, the slinky slide guitar in Big Empty, and the relentless pounding drums of Down; if you like STP, you'll just love the Stone Temple Posers. We even play songs you will rarely hear STP play live. We can also do a full unplugged acoustic set. If you think you are not familiar with STP's catalog, you will most certainly come to appreciate STP's great song-writing ability and the energy that the Stone Temple Posers bring to each of their live shows.
