Rock and Roll Over is a Dallas/ Fort Worth based KISS tribute band consisting of Christopher Paul (Paul Stanley/Lead vocals and guitar), Allen Shelley (Ace Frehley/Lead guitar and vocals), Paul Brown (Peter Criss/Drums and vocals), and Dan D.D. Castiel (Gene Simmons/Bass and vocals).
Our mission and promise is to deliver a first class KISS experience, including KISS style guitars, costumes and theatrics, along with the top notch vocals, energy and tight choreography that people from all over Texas, and beyond have come to expect from a KISS tribute band fronted by leading musicians.
Christopher Paul -Paul Stanley. As the musical backbone of Rock and Roll Over, Christopher is always willing to do whatever it takes to transport the audience to the church of rock and roll! With his soaring vocals and stage presence that's never forced, Christopher is a natural born entertainer who has been studying KISS in general and Paul Stanley in particular since the age of seven. Oozing charisma and sexual energy, Christopher is the one that you can't seem to look away from. Christopher belts out the most difficult Paul Stanley songs such as Heaven's On Fire and I Was Made For Loving with conviction and precision.
Allen Shelley- Staggers to life as Ace Frehley. His smoking guitar and fast fingered licks never fail to elicit delight from the audience. Allen is the hardest working member of Rock and Roll Over off of the stage, and goes out of his way to please fans with multiple photos, or a handshake. Although Allen portrays Ace, his demeanor is more reminiscent of Eric Carr, whose enthusiasm and flat out nice guy qualities radiate like a 1,000 watt bulb. Allen's attention to detail on his instrument is evident and appreciated by audience and band members alike.
Paul Brown- Peter Criss. Paul stalks the jungle that is his drum kit with unprecedented power and dexterity. Although new to the tribute scene, Paul is an experienced drummer, having performed in many original and cover bands such as The JC Allstars. Paul has performed with Christopher in various projects for ten years, which has formed a nearly symbiotic bond on stage.
Paul is the youngest member of Rock and Roll Over, which will likely make him the heart throb of the band, but he's been a KISS fan for as long as he can remember. Paul plays the classic Peter Criss drum lines, but when appropriate he also brings the power and skill of the updated stylings of the late great Eric Carr, and current KISS drummer Eric Singer.
Dan D.D. Castiel - Gene Simmons. As a new member of KISS tribute band Rock and Rollover and playing Gene Simmons, Dan (D.D.) comes to the stage with many years of music performance and recording experience. He has played in many national, original, cover and tribute bands, such as Sleepy Hollow, The Dropoutz, Thrillseeker, Jesse Snider (son of Dee Snider of Twisted Sister fame), Saints of Los Angeles, Livewire (Both Motley Crue tributes), Adrenalize (Def Leppard tribute) and others.
