‘KISS Cancer Goodbye’ Rock Spectacular on November 16 to Benefit MCW Cancer Research

Oct. 01, 2013 College News - An evening of high energy entertainment from Milwaukee’s KISS tribute band, “Dr. Love,” the regional touring act “Circleswitch” and the acoustic duo “Gabriel v2” will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, at Rooters Nightclub in Waukesha.  A minimum donation of $10 is required for admission to the event, and proceeds from the evening will benefit the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center.  Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend. 

The performances begin at 7 p.m., and a silent auction will be available. 

The evening has been organized by veteran Milwaukee musician David Hartlerode, one of the four members of "Dr. Love."  As a "super-tribute" band, Dr. Love captures the costumes, sound, lights, music and spectacle of a true KISS performance, entertaining both fans and the unindoctrinated.

Circleswitch, which originated in the Midwest in 2007, offers an artistic, melodically driven, and straight-forward brand of hard rock.  Their performance has been described as "dynamic and unleashed."

Gabriel v2 is a guitar / drum duo that consists of Gabriel Sanchez (guitar/lead vocals) and Scott Belhumeur (drums / b-vocals). This duo delivers a high energy show playing mainly classic rock songs from artists such as the Beatles, Tom Petty, Queen, The Rolling Stones & the Eagles.

The evening will also feature a very special appearance by legendary guitarist/producer, Bob Kulick.

Bob co-wrote various KISS songs, and he played on three KISS albums. He also played on Paul Stanley's (of KISS) 1978 solo album and on his 1989 solo tour. In addition to his work with KISS, he has recorded and or toured with Meat Loaf and Michael Bolton.
