Back in autumn 2014 a well-known venue, also promoters of a yearly recurring music festival in the east part of The Netherlands, requested the local famous rock band Huphter days on end. After refusing many proposals the band decided to bite the bullet at one condition; the performance must be outrageous and superlunary. Two of the musicians came up with the battle plan, a tribute to the hottest band in the world: KISS!

A journalist got involved with the idea and wrote a newspaper article about a gig of a mysterious famous band playing the stage of the venue the other night. When the words ‘mysterious’ and ‘KISS’ came together the name KISSTERIOUS was born. The word spread and that night the band made an impression and played a successful performance in a full packed house while an annoyed crowd had to wait outside to get their way in. Many other venues got note of KISSTERIOUS and soon the band played venues all over the country. Although this unexpected and tremendous success, the band had never the aim of being a KISS tributeband, but soon this was going to change. After one of the members joined another KISS tribute for a year, he returned to the nest with the right ingredients . The missing pieces of the puzzle by the contribution of three new band members created the second coming of KISSTERIOUS.

All the KISS classics as DETROIT ROCK CITY, LOVE GUN, ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE and LICK IT UP are on the setlist. But also ALIVE! and ALIVE II classics as I WANT YOU, GOD OF THUNDER, SHOCK ME and I STOLE YOUR LOVE are stables on the setlist. Crowd-favourites like SURE KNOW SOMETHING and I WAS MADE FOR LOVIN’ YOU will not be ignored while requested.

KISSTERIOUS got their focus at musical perfection, to get as close to the nearest stage to the original KISS song. Most of the energy will be consumed by harmonic vocal and instrumental parts. Original KISS music files and video’s will be played in slow motion to capture the right feel and sound. The band is using exactly the same equipment as the original band, inseperatable during the live shows to create the ultimate KISS sound as it is today. Full Marshall stacks and a multi-colour LED flashing drumkit creates the KISS look on stage.
Besides the full regalia, make-up and the nostalgic KISS costumes including the platform boots the shows will always be supported by a flashing KISS logo, smoke streams, flames, halogen spotlight, air raid sirens, confetti, streamers and pyrotechnical bombs and fountains . Also the signature acts as the blood and fire spitting, smoking and smashing guitars are not forgotten.
Return to the days of the glam-hard rock scene of the seventies and experience the nostalgic sound and the amazing show. If you think it is too loud now these days, you’re probably became too old to Rock and Roll all nite and party every day!

Maarten van Schoorl as The Spaceman: Lead guitar, lead and backing vocals
