Listen To The Red Hot Chili Peppers' New Album 'The Getaway' June 17, 2016 17:24

Legendary American funk/rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers have officially released The Getaway, their first studio album in five years.  The band took a bit of a different approach with this album, creating all of the material inside the studio, rather than writing it in advance, with direction of the acclaimed producer Danger Mouse.  This new strategy for the Chili Peppers is undoubtedly creates a unique listening experience for the band's rabid fan base.  Spotify users can stream The Getaway in it's entirety below, while those who aren't premium Spotify users listen to the full album via YouTube.  You can also watch the band's official music video for the album's first single "Dark Necessities" below.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, also sometimes shortened to "The Chili Peppers" or abbreviated as "RHCP", are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. The group's musical style primarily consists of rock with an emphasis on funk, as well as elements from other genres such as punk rock and psychedelic rock. When played live, their music incorporates elements of jam band due to the improvised nature of much of their performances. Currently, the band consists of founding members Anthony Kiedis (vocals) and Flea (bass), longtime drummer Chad Smith; and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who joined in late-2009, replacing John Frusciante.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the best-selling bands of all time with over 80 million records sold worldwide, have been nominated for sixteen Grammy Awards, of which they have won six and are the most successful band in alternative rock radio history currently holding the records for most number one singles (12), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. In 2012, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers Jam with George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, and Zigaboo at Jazz Fest April 26, 2016 09:36

The 2016 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival kicked off in in strong fashion over the weekend, with performances from the likes of Pearl Jam, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Grace Potter, Gov't Mule, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Galactic, Anders Osborne, and so many more.  One performance in particular that caught our attention was the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the Acura Stage late in the afternoon on Sunday.  After nearly two hours of RHCP's greatest hits, bassist Flea invited New Orleans funk legends George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, and Zigaboo Modeliste on stage for one final song, "Give It Away".  Another perfect example of something that will only happen at one event: JazzFest.

Jazz Fest is an annual celebration of the music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. Use of the term "Jazz Fest" can also include the days surrounding the Festival and the many shows at unaffiliated New Orleans nightclubs scheduled during the Festival event weekends.  JazzFest continues throughout this week/weekend, and a full schedule of events and performances can be found by clicking here.
