Red-Hot-Benefit-Comedy-Music-Quinceanera-13

I’ve just uploaded photos of the program from last night’s charity fundraiser, the Red Hot Benefit Concert, Music & & Quinceanera. I’ve added transcripts of the main text too. There’s a photo of RHCP, Anthony Kiedis and Flea are listed on the Silverlake page along with the above picture of Flea and obviously several pages feature Chad Smith since he and Will Ferrell were the hosts of the event. 

The full program with transcript of the main text can be seen HERE

 

The Red Hot Benefit Comedy & Quinceanera

chad-smith-will-ferrell-comedy-music-show-poster

Last night (April 29th 2016) saw the Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music & Quinceanera take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Beneficiaries from the event included Cancer for College and The Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

The evening centered around the drumming talents of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ own Chad Smith and actor Will Ferrell returning to the theme of their drum-off on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ back in 2014 for a re-match.

The Drum-Off Between Chad Smith & Will Ferrell @ the Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music & Quinceanera, April 29th 2016

 

This video starts with some of the pre-show warm up trivia, some interviews and then swaps to footage of the actual 2016 show (about 11 minutes in) which begins with a clip from the original drum off with Jimmy Fallon. The new drum off them takes place with guest appearances by drummers including Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, Stewart Copeland (The Police) and Tommy Lee (from the late, great Motley Crue but who only clapped rather than play the drums). It concluded with Mick Fleetwood playing a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Tusk’ accompanied by a marching band, the USC Trojans (who looked more like Roman centurions than anything Troy related but what does this English girl know?!).

There was also other entertainment including Devo and a brief set by RHCP…

Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music + Quinceanera

As I’ve not posted on this yet and I’m playing catch up from my holiday running around LA and various other places in western USA, here goes…

chad-smith-will-ferrell-comedy-music-show-poster

Chad Smith and Will Ferrell are teaming up again this time to host a “Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music + Quinceanera” (and if you were wondering what a ‘quinceanera’ is as I was, apparently it’s a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in Latin American communities… OK!). It takes place on 29th April, 2016, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Beneficiaries include Cancer for College and The Silverlake Conservatory of Music. It will include a performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Devo has been also been added to the bill along with comedians Jim Gaffigan and Nick Offerman

Cancer for College is a charity started by a friend of Will  Ferrell and as most of you know, The Silverlake Conservatory of Music is a non-profit organisation promoting music education and was the brainchild of RHCP’s very own Flea (with other members of RHCP being involved along the way too).
