Party this Saturday with Cold Gin
You’ll see many things during the 2020 Dundalk Virtual Heritage Fair. You’ll see pictures of past fairs. You’ll see inspirational messages from people you know. You’ll see Charles Parker’s tongue.
Parker is the frontman for Cold Gin, a KISS tribute band. If you’ve seen this band perform before, you know that they consider every detail when performing as a KISS tribute band. Parker told the Eagle last year that “you have to look and sound like them if you want to do a tribute band right.”
Cold Gin rocked Dundalk all night during the first day of the Dundalk Heritage Fair in 2019. They were listed as headliners for the first day of concerts.
Parker, who went on an extensive search to form a KISS tribute band several years ago, He met three people living in Toronto, and would travel back and forth between Toronto and Buffalo, New York, to meet up with them.
Currently, Parker plays the part of Paul Stanley. Erik Krakau plays the part of Gene Simmons. Randy Eastridge is Ace Frehley and Bobby Taylor plays Peter Criss. Cold Gin has performed its Kiss Tribute Band show for audiences in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and other locations in the United States, according to the band’s official website, www.coldgin. com.
Parker also told the Eagle last year that it takes the band more than two hours to prepare for a show. The bandmates do their own makeup. Their costumes are either handmade or ordered from various costume shops around America.
Cold Gin rocked Dundalk in mid-summer last year, and Dundalkians can party this Saturday while watching a performance by Cold Gin during the 2020 Dundalk Virtual Heritage Fair.
