Crimson Nights is a Brisbane based funk rock band that all met through a Bachelor of Music at QUT, and have since developed into one of Brisbane’s best emerging bands. Crimson Nights aim to excite and delight their audiences by playing the very best funk rock music, with a dash of heavy rock and some grunge undertones. Inspired by some of the biggest names in the alternative rock and funk music scene (Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arctic Monkeys and Stevie Nicks), audiences at a Crimson Nights gig can expect to hear a mix of covers as well as some of their own original songs.

Headlining at The Milk Factory pub in West End, Crimson Nights were supported by Kriza & Roy Music and Archogenus. Archogenus delivered a range of relaxed acoustic guitar covers, while Kriza & Roy performed an incredible set of original songs, with piano ballads, electronic pop and acoustic songs included in their setlist.

Crimson Nights kicked things off with their electrifying cover of Franz Ferdinand’s ‘Take Me Out,’ which is always a crowd favourite at their gigs. This was followed by their original song ‘Boys Don’t Marry,’ which featured some incredible guitar licks from guitarist Beau Simpson, and followed by a great cover of the iconic ‘Danny California’ from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Other standout original songs that followed included their soulful rock ballads ‘Fire Water’ and ‘I Still Believe in Love,’ with pulsing punk rock songs ‘City of Love’ and ‘XTC’ featuring dynamic and intense vocals from lead singer Jess Keble. Another standout original song was ‘Charismatic Man,’ which featured intense beats from drummer Saul Saragossi and bassist Mitch McLaurie. Crimson Nights finished the show with an epic, soulful rendition of Muse’s ‘Feeling Good.’

As well as gaining further popularity in the Brisbane music scene, Crimson Nights are also set to release their debut EP in the coming months.
