Meet Rob Smith of KISS FOREVER in Downtown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rob Smith.

Rob, please share your story with us.
2009 John Saner aka Demon, bassist began the band.. shortly his childhood best friend Ara Asadoorian took over as Starchild, lead vocals, Rhythm guitar. They forged the band with the intent to break the mold and limitations that most tribute bands find themselves in, by creating the most realistic show possible. From 2009 to mid-2013, John and Ara had multiple lead guitarists and drummers. Till September 2013, when I was called upon to audition as Ace for lead guitar and thus began the best and most productive 4 years of my musical life. Shortly after in January 2014, Mike Grillo aka Catman would join the band behind the kit and would be the fourth and final piece of what was to become the perfect chemistry between 4 musicians. Fast forwarding to today…the band has never been stronger… The product we deliver never more on point…the impact we bring both sonically and visually is unmatched by any KISS tribute band anywhere

Has it been a smooth road?
In all honesty…the struggles this band faced were before Catman and I joined the band. For years Ara and John had to deal with members who wouldn’t carry their weight. Members who didn’t share the vision.. The passion and were not team players.

The line-up of KISS FOREVER

Is exactly how it was always meant and intended to be. 4 musicians who bring their professionalism and passion and work ethic to one mindset shared by all. And personally, for me, not just 4 musicians, but 4 guys who love each other..4 brothers who protect and defend each other to no limit…and it’s gone beyond the realms of just the band…all the wives and children are equally intertwined into the fabric that makes KISS FOREVER a family unto itself.

So many bands are destroyed from within by the 2 most biggest pitfalls… Ego and Greed… Of which neither has ever existed in this band.
