On Saturday, July 22nd, Love Gun (a Kiss Tribute Band) rocked the stage at the Imogene Theatre in Milton, FL.

Members are Russ Stanley, James Simmons, Jr. Criss and Paul Frehley. The band is originally from New Orleans, LA, but half of its line-up resides in Pensacola, FL. The group is the ULTIMATE Kiss tribute band, and their performances feature all the traditional KISS tricks. Jr. hands out roses to all the ladies during “Beth”, James spits blood and (venue permitting) breathes fire, and Paul smashes a guitar on stage.

To keep track of the guys, check out the following links.

Photographer. Music Nerd. Artist.

Hi! I’m Kristina, Kris for short. I’ve pretty much had a camera in my hand since I was old enough to press a shutter, and loved music for as long as I can remember. I always knew I wanted to do something with both art forms, but learned early on that I was absolute trash at playing anything. I can call out what instrument I hear being played, but I have no idea how to create the sound.

Ergo, transition into concert photography. In 2010, I took a leap of faith and put my efforts to work, and wrote my first press request. The first band I ever shot was the Misfits, by a stroke of luck. After about two years, I got lucky again and was asked if I’d like to interview a band as well as cover the show, making Ballyhoo my very first interview. I have had some of the most incredible experiences doing this, including traveling to cover festivals with unheard artists, and bands that I’ve loved my whole life.

I look forward to being able to cover and listen to more incredible bands with The Patchchord News, and I hope you all enjoy the experience as much as I do.
