Gimme a KISS

Truro Daily News - - ENTERTAINMENT - SPE­CIAL TO TRURO NEWS

KISS was one of the top hard rock bands of the 1970s and ’80s and their pop­u­lar­ity hasn’t waned much since.

De­stroyer Canada is bring­ing the best of the band to the de­coste Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre Satur­day, Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m.

Flashy cos­tumes, make-up and pow­er­ful per­son­al­i­ties like the mem­o­rable Gene Sim­mons were all trade­marks of the orig­i­nal KISS.

“Trib­ute groups have been very pop­u­lar at the de­coste; De­stroyer Canada will be our sixth so far this year,” said de­coste mar­ket­ing man­ager Jen­nifer Maclennan. “We be­lieve it’s im­por­tant to show­case a wide range of mu­si­cal gen­res. While the rock and roll and heavy metal bands may not be ap­peal­ing to our usual pa­trons, there is an au­di­ence in the area who en­joy this kind of mu­sic, as was proven by the suc­cess of the AC/DC and Pink Floyd trib­ute bands we had here this past sum­mer.”

De­stroyer Canada is based out of Wind­sor, Ont., and is made up of four tal­ented mu­si­cians who have been in the busi­ness for 25 years and have staged over 1,200 per­for­mances. Through­out their show they recre­ate the en­ergy, pow­er­house vo­cals and raw per­for­mance of a ’70s-era KISS show. They’ve per­formed at nu­mer­ous venues over the years and are still one of the most sought af­ter and hard- work­ing KISS trib­ute bands around. They will play some of the clas­sic KISS hits like Shout it Out Loud and Rock and Roll All Nite.

Tick­ets will be avail­able up to the day of the show, or un­til sold out. Con­tact the box of­fice at 902-4858848 or toll free at 1-800-353-5338 or on­line at www. de­coste­cen­tre.ca. Tick­ets are $35 or $30 for any­one who can pro­duce a ticket stub from the Mo­men­tary Lapse con­cert held in Au­gust.
