Legend has it Elviss Simmons was congealed deep within the mind-bowels of two drunken renegade scientists one night in Las Vegas. Some say they collected Elvis sweat during one of his end-of-career lounge shows and fused his DNA with that of Gene Simmons of KISSand Elviss Simmons was born. When he grew up, he became what many social-misfit, genetic mutants become: a musician. The pompous, oblivious front man is backed by a circus of musicians. Together, they form a cover-band powerhouse playing rockabilly-lounge KISS songs and shredding through Elvis tunes. Warn your uncle that his part-time Elvis-impersonator career is in jeopardy because the best thing since MiniKISS is coming to town.
