If you are anything like this preview writer, you read this event as ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers.’ And, if you are a fan, you were likely to-the-moon excited that the band was coming to the beautiful Akron Civic Theatre. However, this show is, in fact, the Red Hot CHILLI PIPERS — a bagpipe group!
While the Red Hot Chilli Pipers may not have the collection of hits and platinum record stacks like the Chili Peppers, one could argue they are much more unique!
Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show so hot it carries its own health warning.
Since their formation, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers have combined guitars, keyboards, drums and their bagpipes to create ‘bagrock’ sound. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers perform a fusion of traditional pipe tunes and contemporary pieces. Notable covers performed have included “We Will Rock You” by Queen, “Clocks” by Coldplay and “Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple as well as “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey.
