KISS Frontman Paul Stanley Announces Club Show For Side Project

(hennemusic) KISS frontman Paul Stanley will debut his new soul tribute band, Soul Station, at The Roxy in West Hollywood on September 11. Stanley bills the outfit as "a ten piece coalition of some of today's leading musicians paying tribute to an era of great soul music."

"When I was a boy," says Stanley, "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 and the Miracles, Blue Magic and on, these songs, arrangements and sound just blow you away."

Stanley says fans should not expect a night of KISS music at a Soul Station show, even though KISS drummer Eric Singer is in the lineup. "I don't play guitar in the band and we don't do a single KISS song," he explains. "That's not what this is about. It's magical to hear those songs played right and we're making magic.
