February 6, 2016, 3 years ago
KISS founder/frontman Paul Stanley performed the first-ever Soul Station concert at The Roxy in West Hollywood last September 11th. His R&B band has three California shows coming up later this month, and in celebration has posted more video from their debut. Check out a performance of the Smokey Robinson & The Miracles classic “Tracks Of My Tears”, below:
Soul Station is a ten piece coalition of some of today’s leading musicians paying tribute to an era of great soul music.
“When I was a boy, before I ever saw The Who or Led Zeppelin, I saw Solomon Burke and Otis Redding. I saw the Temptations. It’s tragic to think that so many people are missing out on experiencing the power of so many great bands, artists and that incredible music,” said Stanley. “That music is part of the foundation of all the music I’ve made and Soul Station is my chance to celebrate it for a night that’s real and live.”
To clarify further he adds, “I don’t play guitar in the band and we don’t do a single KISS song. That’s not what this is about,” Stanley continues. “It’s magical to hear those songs played right and we’re making magic.”

26 - The Coach House - San Juan Capistrano, CA
