    July 3, 2014 – Rock and Roll Over is a flamboyant group who recreates the elaborate KISS live performances, featuring the blood spitting and smoking guitars KISS is famous for! Named after KISS’s fifth studio album, Rock and Roll Over performed a set of high energy, high intensity music and the Kiss army who made it out to the Rockpile East on this Thursday night were treated a special show.

    After a few technical difficulties, a somewhat familiar KISS intro was heard… ‘You wanted the best — you got the best — the hottest KISS tribute band in the world’ – Rock and Roll Over was announced and a huge backdrop with a big KISS logo dramatically dropped to the floor and the band started their set with the traditional KISS concert opener “Deuce”.

    On this special night we were treated to a multitude of special events. Drummer Deen Castronovo (drummer of Journey) made a special guest appearance and gave us a drum solo that was to be marveled at.

    My money is on Rock and Roll Over becoming the premier KISS tribute band in Canada. This show delivered EXACTLY what I expected. A high energy set of classic KISS anthems and party type atmosphere! These guys will quickly become the benchmark for other KISS tribute bands! I would strongly recommend going to the next Rock and Roll Over show at the Rockpile east scheduled for September 13, 2014. You will not be disappointed.
