Anthony sits down to his drums, and the excitement begins to mount. He picks up his sticks and poises his body like a crouching Cat about to spring. He watches for a moment. Waits until the tension is ALMOST unbearable. You feel yourself ready for the blow. He raises his arms. It's coming, it's coming. And now... He Strikes! All of the fury of his untamed energy explodes! Anthony is the force that makes you flinch again and again as ALMOST HUMAN plays on. His blows drive the will from his victims, while all the time they want more and more. It's coming, it's coming... Destroyer Rik has been captivated by The Star Child. A destiny spawned out of KISS record covers and magazine articles, Rik became a musician at an early age. Since the early 80’s Rik has fronted such bands as Broken Promises, Take 5, Last Minute, Two Track Mind and Notorious. Rik has played numerous local venues and radio sponsored engagements from the 80’s to the present. The lights go out and this quiet and somewhat reserved musician jumps into character. Never over the top and completely believable, Rik will immediately identify with the audience and engage their attention. When his love for the music and the opportunity to pay tribute to his idol commenced it was ALMOST unbelievable, and with his band mates, Anthony, Ace and Mike, it is Almost Human. Mike has impersonated Gene Simmons since 1991 and has played in such respectable KISS Tribute bands as, "Rock And Roll Over" as well as "ALMOST HUMAN". Mike has toured the United States in this role and has played at over 20 KISS Conventions/Expos. At two of said Conventions, Mike has performed live with Ex KISS Guitarist Vinnie Vincent. In 1995, the real KISS held a series of KISS Conventions and Mike was lucky enough to have performed at one in Boston. The Idea was to have a KISS Tribute Band perform and then the Real KISS would come out and perform an acoustic set. However, KISS had to catch a plane to NY for the rehearsals of the KISS - MTV Unplugged performance and due to time restrictions, KISS went on first and opened up for Mike and his band. Mike's photo can also be seen in the book, KISSTORY (the Hard cover KISS Coffee table book). We dare you to find another impersonator that sounds more like Gene Simmons than Mike $corpio does. Anthony was first introduced to KISS at the age of six. He opened up KISS ALIVE 2 and became a fan for life. Drums were next and soon in High School he started his first band. As time passed, Anthony decided that make a living as a musician. CBGB'S and the Worcester Palladium are two of his favorite venues to play. Anthony has seen Peter Criss, Eric Carr and Eric Singer in concert but it was Peter Criss that got him interested in playing the drums. Between Anthony's vocal abilities and his drumming abilities, you WILL swear that you're watching the real Peter Criss of 1977 performing right before your very eyes. A unique guitarist specializing in the music of KISS. In 1976, a young Robby Mills watched KISS on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special and felt his world change. Robby picked up a cheap guitar and immediately began studying the signature licks of Ace Frehley. For the next 30 years Robby learned the licks, the moves, the facial expressions, everything there was to know of Ace and KISS. "When I'm onstage, I feel as if I'm channeling Ace. I AM Ace for those few hours." Robby became so well known amongst his friends and coworkers as Ace, that in 2000, he had his name legally changed to Ace. Now that's dedication! Ace has played with such KISS Tribute bands as "SIKK", and "Cold Gin" and now brings his unique talents to the forefront of the KISS Tribute industry with ALMOST HUMAN. "I'm playing with 3 of the most talented musicians I've ever witnessed. We not only have the talent but our personalities just jive onstage and that excitement explodes out into the audience like a bolt of lightning." Experience Ace at his best with ALMOST HUMAN!

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Billy Paul began his singing career when he was twelve, appearing on local radio shows. Listening at home to his family's collection of 78's, Billy began developing a vocal style that would eventually incorporate traces of Jazz, R&B and Pop. "That's how I really got indoctrinated into music," recalls Billy. "My mother was always buying and collecting records, and she would buy everything from 'Jazz At The Philharmonic Hall' to Nat King Cole.
As Billy grew, so did his interest in music. Seeking to increase hidden technical skills, Billy attended Temple University, West Philadelphia Music School, and Granoff Music School, for formal training. Before too long, Billy found himself appearing in clubs and college campuses nationally. Switching from Rock to Soul to Pop ballads, he soon became an underground phenomenon in Philadelphia.
The amazing Mr. Paul began getting national recognition, and soon appeared in concert with such artists as Charlie Parker, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, the Impressions, Sammy Davis and Roberta Flack. Nancy Wilson was so impressed with a track off his debut album that she recorded it herself.
Billy formed a trio and cut his first record, "Why Am I" for Jubilee Records before being drafted into the Armed Services. After his release from the service came a quick stop at the New Dawn Label, and a brief stand in for one of the Blue Notes with Harold Melvin. His first Philly album, "Feeling Good At The Cadillac Club" combined Billy Paul and Gamble/Huff produced tunes, and was released on the Gamble Label. This jazz L.P. was followed by one more commercial release "Ebony Woman", released on the Gamble & Huff Neptune label. Still later, Going East, Billy's first album released on the Philadelphia International Label, set him further into the commercial groove. However, it was with his second album that everything broke loose in his career. 360 Degrees Of Billy Paul with the ensuing single "Me And Mrs. Jones" selling over two million copies alone, placed Billy's name on the lips of every couple in love. The gold album and platinum single broke the artist on world charts, including Britain where the single entered the top five.
"Me And Mrs. Jones" went on to win Billy the coveted Grammy Award. In addition to receiving the Grammy, Billy Paul has won multiple Ebby awards (given by the readers of Ebony magazine); has been the recipient of the American Music Award, the NAACP Image Award and numerous proclamations and keys to cities across the United States. He's toured internationally with overwhelming response in the United Kingdom, South America and Latin America.

Element 115 originally formed in 1995 as an all original act in the Phoenix area. Personnel changes occurred shortly after forming, and the new group quickly recognized that the audience was most responsive (and got up and danced) when the classic-rock tunes they loved were played. This newer line-up appreciated that response and began focusing on re-creating the tracks that were popular, but not over-played by the radio stations in the 70s and 80s when those songs were originally released.
Over the years, the position of drummer seemed to be the hardest to keep in place, and the search for an extraordinary beat keeper ensued. While listening to some signals from a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program, the guitar player discovered an intelligent message coming from space. Tracking that signal to its source, Al, a being from a world 40 light-years from Earth, was found to be the originator of that message. Al had been listening to Earths radio signals for some time and heard some rock music from the 70s and 80s. He was immediately motivated to create a drum set and start playing along. He sent a message back to Earth hoping one of these bands would hear him and let him join. Naturally, Al got the position of drummer with the band, and the line-up of Element 115 was solidified. Using a tacheon-beam technology from his home world, Al plays with the Earthers of the band wherever they entertain.
Element 115 is ready with a complete stage, sound reinforcement, and lightshow for any event, large or small. From corporate celebrations to weddings, birthday bashes to high-school reunions, Element 115 has the song list (Boston, Styx, Kansas, Tubes, Steve Miller, Bad Company, Eagles, and dozens more) and ability to get attendees singing, dancing, and having a great time. In fact, the band GUARANTEES a memorable event when they play.
The band is working on its debut CD, "Space Bender" and the disc is expected to be released this year.

Yes, it’s true about who you know in Hollywood but sometimes it's merely fate working her mysterious magic. That’s exactly what happened when five worlds collided. A mutual producer friend spearheaded the initial introduction of ultra-hot European lead singer Dhana and LA local producer/keyboardist Gregg. Shortly after, followed the discovery of drummer Jason, guitarist Matt and bassist Brian.
Named after the bouncy dolls seen in the back of taxicabs, Taxi Doll was formed to bridge the gap between pop-rock and electronic music.
Inspired by a mix of Garbage, Chemical Brothers and Blondie, the band quickly popularized a sound that is often referred to as “Rocktronica”.
“We’ve been so lucky to have all come together so quickly. I know it can take a long time to form a band, but we all love the same bands, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Blondie, No Doubt, Garbage, etc. We used to meet on Melrose to hang out and talk about music, I guess you could say Taxi Doll was formed there.”
Since the inception of Taxi Doll, they have placed numerous songs in TV and Film, with “Waiting” charting 3 on the Billboard Dance Charts and now “Be With You” which is currently moving up the charts.
Their songs can be heard in the following movies and TV shows: "John Tucker Must Die" "Firewall" "Shall We Dance" "Laguna Beach" "The Hills" "CSI: NYC" "Veronica Mars"
