Midnight Jungle are four guys from across the south of England with a diverse background, who joined forces in early 2015 to form a tribute to the biggest funk rock band in the world, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
For over thirty years, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have had chart topping success and played shows at the biggest venues around the world, resulting in a strong and loyal fan base. They formed in 1983 in Los Angeles and have become one of the best-selling American rock bands of all time with 80 million records sold, winning seven Grammy Awards in the process. Some of the most memorable and influential hits from the extensive catalogue include 'Under The Bridge', 'Aeroplane', and ‘Californication’.
Midnight Jungle reproduces that ultimate funk rock sound, reminding you of the awesome tunes and performances that brought the band international success, while capturing the spirit of the Red Hot Chili Peppers: fun, lively, loving, vibrant and energy filled! We are musicians who grew up heavily influenced by RHCP, with an ability to deliver the explosive performance that everyone expects from an RHCP show.
Midnight Jungle are the amazing Matty on vocals, who sounds and looks like Anthony Kiedis, but without the moustache, Jordan, an extremely talented guitarist, who knows the Red Hot Chili Peppers back catalogue better than John Frusciante, Dave Navarro and Josh Klinghoffer combined, Richard, a busy professional drummer of exceptional quality, and Werner, who idolises Flea, on bass guitar. Original drummer and founding member AJ is recovering from a serious spinal injury.
The name Midnight Jungle is a mishmash of RHCP song titles, "Midnight" from "By The Way" (2002) and "Jungle Man" from "Freaky Styley" (1995).
