Connecticut Comic Conn at Mohegan Sun just got bigger and better! Today, show promoter Mitch Hallock has announced to the world that KISS Forever, the best KISS tribute band in the land have been added to the three day show starting on August 14th!
"The con that celebrates comics has rock - the Bat Pack, Comedians of the Unknown and KISS Forever." said Hallock from his 'Hall of Justice!'
For me this is a no - brainer...KISS and comic books go hand in hand. As a six year old comic book fan, KISS to me represented a real life musical comic book. I have gotten to know the guys very well and am looking forward to the rest of the world discovering them. Here is our buddy (and Secret Identity alum) Ara to tell us more!
"I'm Ara Asadoorian AKA Starchild of KISS FOREVER: Tribute Band to KISS. Yesterday I was looking for a DVD to watch and came across Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and next to it was Kissology Part 1. I looked at both DVD's and said to myself, these are my two favorite movie and band videos in this whole world. They are uniquely the same in their amazing looks and sounds. KISS first known for it's music, amazing stage performance and later toys, comics and movies makes me feel like we fit right into the comic world. Kiss Forever is so happy to perform this summer at Connecticut's premier Comic Con at Mohegan Suns Cabaret Theater. We will have the most amazing stage and sound performance that you will not want to miss. Our band will be featuring new costumes from the Dynasty & Unmasked era, new songs and a lot more surprises. Our Ace AKA Rob Smith will be mesmerizing the crowd with his authentic recreation of Rock God: Ace Frehley. Our Demon AKA John Saner will be stalking the stage and spitting blood and our Fox AKA Mike Grillo will be high above the stage on our Creatures of the Night: Tank drum riser. I'll be strutting the stage and smashing a guitar or too. Come rock and roll with us all day Saturday from 11-3PM and as always, come and take pictures and autographs with us anytime!"
