These guys are better than Kiss is now!

I came to see the show at the Sherman Theater with my family on Dec 5th.  We drove 2 hours each way from upstate NY and it was well worth the trip!  You guys do a great job mastering every detail of the Kiss show and each member's persona.  I'm a drummer and a lifelong Kiss fan so I know every nuance of every song on the Alive! album including Paul's banter between the songs. The time and effort you must put in to get every aspect down is daunting. Plus bringing in people from Kiss history.  I certainly appreciated it and would recommend you guys to any Kiss fan.

Great job last night.  I was 4th row center to witness a fantastic performance on every aspect last night.  Sound was great. Ace's guitar was out there right in you face during his solos.  Stage set up and lighting was stellar.  Loved the look of the fog rolling down the drum riser and off the stage.  Live fire breathing was awesome addition to your show.  Nicely done.  Cant wait to see you guys again.  Top-notch performance!

My wife and I saw Alive 75 last Sat at Newton theatre and it was great..  I was 14 years old when I first saw KISS in 1975 at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ. It was amazing to relive that moment.
 — Bob Kalawur via website contact form, 9/22/15

You guys are killing it!  Crowd packed to the ceiling!  Can't wait to see you again.
 — Facebook Fan, 9/21/15

I was in 107 Row A.  Awesome show.  Note for note perfect, blood spitting, smoking guitar, drums levitating, smashing guitar, fog, classic posing and stage antics, simulated fire, cool lights, free after show meet and greet signing autographs and posing for pics.  Can't wait until they come back!

Great show, what a way to top off our weekend in Pa!!!!  Made me realize what a great album Alive was all over again!!
 — Michael Streeter via Facebook post, 3/30/15

Well, I was at the show on Saturday night, and i was a bit hesitant about what to expect.  Well not anymore!!!  You guys brought it - the production was well above what I expected, bravo!!!  Everyone was true to the spirit of Kiss.  It looks like a lot of thought went into this show,not just your average trib band for sure.  I def will be back!  Drove an 1/1/2 hrs to see you guys, and it was def worth it.  Next time I will bring out my crue, to chk you guys out, and it was really great to see my old pal JR again, and his intro was the best!!!
