Morrison Hotel Gallery Will Celebrate The Grammys and the Legacy of KISS with Career-Spanning Exhibit
Career-Spanning Exhibit and Special Appearances by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley
In celebration of Grammy Week, on Saturday, February 13th from 6 to 8 PM, Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel will honor KISS with a career-spanning photographic exhibit, and debut the first edition pieces from the KISS + UKIYO-E Project. From 6:00 to 6:30 PM, KISS founders and rock n’ roll icons Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will make a very special appearance.
Morrison Hotel Gallery salutes the Grammys and the legacy of the seminal rock band with an exhibition that will feature iconic and revealing images of the group along its journey from fiery upstarts to megastars. The exhibit will also include the debut of the KISS + UKIYO-E Project which showcases a unique selection of stunning multi-colored wood block prints, representative of one of Japan’s most revered traditional genre of art. The KISS Ukiyo-e are first edition prints, limited to only 200, and are signed by the band. The ‘KISS Ukiyo-e’ project started in fall of 2014 as the first of its kind collaboration with a team of Japanese master artisans, and has culminated in these wonderful pieces of fine art being displayed here in their first comprehensive international feature exhibit. Widely popularized during the 1600s in Edo era Japan, Ukiyo-e famously depicted current events and often illustrious entertainment industry figures and scenes, and thus this contemporary collaboration with KISS is the perfect modern day continuation of the Ukiyo-e tradition.

KISS frontman Paul Stanley is taking on a new musical style that might shock some fans of his hard-rock band, but it's one that he insists helped shape the face-paint-wearing, pyrotechnic group, which has been around since 1973.
Teaming up with a dozen other musicians, Stanley, who sings and plays guitar in KISS, is dropping the instrument, makeup and theatrics to sing covers of Motown and soul classics in a new group called Soul Station, which he is bringing to Orange County this month.
"Anything is more toned down than KISS," Stanley said, laughing, of the group made popular by hits like "Rock and Roll All Nite" and "Detroit Rock City."
"As soon as you do something, it's more toned down than what we do, but the power of something like Soul Station can take the top of your head off," he said. "It's very powerful, and I walk off stage drenched. It goes back to something that's stripped down, but by no means is it laid back. It's like a steamroller.
"You can't have a 13-piece band with horns and backup singers and not bowl somebody over. It's big, it's loud and it's fun. You don't usually assemble something like this and play a club. But that's part of what makes this so fun."
The band, which performs hits by groups like The Temptations and Jackson 5, is kicking off a short Southern California tour at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Feb. 26. The group will also play shows in Agoura Hills and Pasadena.
Thanks KISS ARMY South Dakota! We had a great time at the Badlands in Sioux Falls last night.

We have great owners that are legendary performers and the fans love it when they see them at the games to cheer on the team”, said LA KISS CEO, Joe Windham. “We have made some big off season acquisitions and expectations for the football team in its third year are running high.

Get ready to Rock n Roll all night! The legendary band KISS will be performing at Badlands Pawn Thursday night, unmasked and unplugged.
KISS is already in town and KELOLAND News caught up with them this afternoon to talk about a softer side to these hard rockers.
We all see the band members of KISS on stage. But what most of don't see is the generosity hidden behind the makeup and costumes.
The band members, who've been to Sioux Falls many times, talk highly about the Brennan Rock and Roll Academy where they interact with some of the kids from the Boys and Girls Club, who come here after school to learn to play music from volunteers.
