E1PRESENTS brings KISStory to the Shea Theater this Oct 19th, for an unbelievable performance. KISSTORY is a true tribute to KISS. Starring Vinny Dawson as the DEMON, KISStory has been rocking the USA since 1996.

Vinny may have started out as playing ACE for the first 14 yrs of Kisstory, however, he became very frustrated in trying to find a good DEMON for the band. He thought to himself it would be easier to find a good Ace than a DEMON. . . He then decided he could play it better than anyone else himself, and without a doubt he was right. We were left with the KISSTORY you all know and love today.

Kisstory's band members are all truly amazing artists, they are exact replicas of KISS down to the costume, props, and of course the sound. You have Vinny Dawson as the DEMON, Kevin Conrad as FOX, Dave Bariteau as STARCHILD, and Jason Taft as SPACEMAN. Perfection with this band is all the way down to the makeup taking about 60-90 min for application. Their performance is amazing. All band members are true diehard fans of KISS and all feel a true connection to the person they represent. So much like the real deal right down to spitting out flames, and blood oozing out of the Demon’s mouth! This is a show you won't want to miss. If you love KISS, You will love KISSTORY. It will be like you were back in the 80's rocking it at a KISS concert all over again.
