We played really well and we've established a really good flow to the set list. Not only do we play our asses off on stage but we also give that little bit extra once the show is over to make the experience as complete as possible. We began the arduous task of lifting everything from the street down below via an elevator up to the second floor and down the hallway into the venue.

Once the sound check was complete we had a few hours to relax and just take in the time there.

It flowed seemlessly from our guitars as if we had been playing it for years. The modest crowd was appreciative of our efforts and the subsequent meet 'n greet introduced us to some genuinely nice fans from the area.

This weeks show took us once again just outside of Chicago to the cool town of W. Dundee, IL and our first visit to the ROCHAUS. Not too well I might add as they somehow became tangled up with a antiquated light truss and toppled off of the front of the stage. The interview includes concert footage clips as well as a rendition of \"Firehouse\" to close out the video. After a few hours of deliberating, waiting and finally getting things to a point where they seemed to be ironed out we completed our sound check.

This time we made it almost to the very end of "Calling Dr.Love" before the power went out again! Mr. There was nothing to look back on where we failed in regard to performing. We found a way to work through it and left them satisfied with 17 classic KISS tracks that spanned almost the entire catalog. We followed that up with "Calling Dr.Love" and felt good enough to get on with the show. We played well and really laid it all out there. What a thrill it is for us to back our trailer up to this venue and get to work. Once set up was complete we ran through "Tears Are Falling," "Love Her All I Can" and "Hooligan" to get our sound dialed in to our liking. In the end we were very proud of our show overall and the meet & greet that ensued would echo that. This time our stop brought us to Mitchell, Indiana for a Thursday night show. The crew was so gracious and helpful. Our first outdoor show of the year and wouldn't you know it we've got the hottest temperatures of the year in tow! Mitchell hadn't seen a drop of rain in over two months and we were told that we were not allowed to blow fire during the performance. We had to pull the trailer near the curb a good 100 feet away, navigate a curved sidewalk, up a flight of stairs and then onto the stage. Sure, we had a few musical blunders and we even tried out a new song. We never really lost our momentum and we held the crowd up until the very end, showering them with confetti that blew this way and that with the aide of the every changing wind direction. Every piece of gear that entered the building needed to be inspected. The show itself was, by our standards, not one of our best.

We were, as is usually the case early for our work to begin so we did just that. Once that we settled on how we would set up the stage we worked through our sound check trying to yet again get things just right. We're fans too and we need each and every one that comes out to see us and a little extra time makes it all worthwhile. The venue itself is really great. Every seat is a good one and the sound keeps getting better. The opening band experienced numerous power delays and the frustration began settling in not only for them but for us too. MR. We hit the stage running and sure we made it through but we really do try to elevate our game and give our best each time that we get the chance to do so.

There just wasn't enough room for them. We'll take that all day every day. Let's see what the future holds, but remember...all of that gear had to leave the stage the same way that it got there. The weird thing about the crowd on this night was how polite they were. We will hope to rewrite our page in the book of bands that took a drink at the creek celebrating the power of almighty rock 'n roll.

We estimated the crowd at some where around 300 people and the energy in the room was hesitant at first but soon gave way to an organized release as the show wore on. By 5 PM we were finished with our pre-show meal and gathering in the make-shift dressing room, a brewery if you can believe it to morph into our character portrayals for the night. The addition of "Not For The Innocent" is really starting to become one that we look forward to playing with its heavy opening riff and aggressive style. A place where once you walk inside you realize that all of the years of hard work feel as if they've finally paid off.

There was hospitality around every corner and we really felt as if we were a real rock band in the true sense of the word. Great travel (for the most part) a great venue and another enthusiastic show...what could be better? We were working with a local opening band for this show calling themselves Jam Box. I personally felt that "Heavens On Fire" and "Lick It Up" stole the show.

All of our stage effects were working perfectly, the individual solos paid homage to the original members themselves and 3 bell tolls were added to Jim's blood solo, giving it even more of a classic horror feel. The individual solos helped to seal the deal with the moderate crowd that had gathered. We also had an opening act called Hell Came Home from Hartford City that was providing support for us and we wanted to make sure that they had what they needed too. It wasn't the easiest transition in the world but in the end I believe it makes us a better band that we know what needs to be done and we just do it. You might be thinking that selling 307 seats shouldn't be that difficult for any band but there was a guy by the name of Garth Brooks in town performing at Heinz Field for 70,000 fans which could've kept a few people away from our show.

I know I'm getting off track here but for some reason they don't seem to have a problem with this during shows. The stage was more than we could handle but completely accommodating. Inside the stage is perfect size. We did just that at 9:00 PM and replaced "Deuce" with "Detroit Rock City" to open the show. With time it will only get better and that's the exciting thing about having new blood in the band that really gets his instrument.
