If you are a Kiss fan, and specifically a Gene Simmons fan, hiring me for your next event you will not leave you disappointed. Perfect for Kiss fans' birthday parties (any age) , wedding receptions or any other event where the "God of Thunder" could add excitement. I have been photographed thousands of times, and been mistaken for Simmons, both in and out of makeup. The first time was at a Kiss concert, by an event staff person! I use the very best makeup available, and I wear a Kiss licensed outfit (Rock the Nation tour) complete with seven inch platform boots. I do not wear a wig, as I have long black hair just like Simmons himself. I have a genuine Gene Simmons Axe Bass, and yes, I do breathe fire (under correct conditions)
I have been emulating Simmons off and on since 1975. If you want the best, I WILL bring it!

Kiss of course, and Kiss tribute bands I have seen. The most influence I've had are my personal fans, who have told me countless times how much I look and sound like Simmons
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 15 - 45 minutes
I will do personal appearances and photo ops: Simmons iconic bass solo complete with drooling "blood"; fire breathing; or a complete show featuring six to seven songs with myself playing bass and singing live using backing tracks (karaoke style) so it sounds like the whole band is there, which lasts 30 to 45 minutes.
Stage or room for my stage, green stage lights, room for breathing fire
If I do a music set with fire breathing, the fire breathing can only be done in perfect conditions, ie if done outside, little or no wind, and if done inside, at least a 10 to 15 foot clearance between myself and your crowd/patrons. Unless using your stage, I will need room in which to set up my equipment, which includes a small p.a. system, as well as amplifiers and mic. Also, I cannot be held liable for getting "blood' on your floor, although every precaution will be taken to avoid it. I will also not be held liable if someone stands too close for the fire breathing portion of the show. If I feel it will be too dangerous for me or a patron, I will reserve the right to cancel that part of the show. I will also need room to set up two green and one white floodlight, which will be below stage level, unless the venue provides such lighting. I will also need a private area in which to change into makeup/costume, preferably with running water and ample lighting,and at least 2 hours to do so.
If doing a show that includes music. I will play some of Simmons' classics, such as "Calling Dr. Love", "Cold Gin" and "God of Thunder", among others
