KISS Frontman Paul Stanley Announces New Soul Station Dates
Stanley launched his first show with the band back in September at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. The new Soul Station dates will begin in San Juan Capistrano at The Coach House on February 26th, followed by Agoura Hills at The Canyon on February 27th and concluding in Pasadena at The Rose on February 28th.
He had the following to say about his reason for launching the project, "We're living in a time of being fed canned pre-programmed backing tracks and lip syncing in place of the electricity and passion of real live R&B
"When I was a boy, before I ever saw the Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw the Temptations and all that music is part of the foundation of the music I've made. Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that's real, live and faithfully recreates the sound with the respect it deserves.
"Whether it's the Stylistics, the Dramatics, the Temptations, Smokey [Robinson] and the Miracles, Blue Magic and on, these songs, arrangements and sound just blow you away. I don't play guitar in the band and we don't do a single Kiss song. That's not what this is about. It's magical to hear those songs played right and we're making magic."
Stanley will be joined by Rafael "Hoffa" Moreira (guitar & backing vocals), Sean Hurley (bass), Alex Alessandroni (keyboards), Ely Rise (keyboards), Eric Singer (drums & backing vocals), Ramon Yslas (percussion), Jon Papenbrook (leading horns), Nelson Beato (backing vocals), Crystal Starr (backing vocals), and Laurhan Beato (backing vocals).
