Ace Frehley of KISS on November 18 at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis!

TF

Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley invaded the 8-track machines and cassette decks of millions of teenagers and twenty-somethings as a member of what might be the most colorful — and wildly successful — rock n’ roll band ever.

“Space Ace” will bring four decades of music wherewithal to Rams Head On Stage for a performance at 8 p.m. Nov. 18. Annapolis native Jimi Davies will open the show in support of Frehley.

Frehley’s membership in KISS lasted nine years, from 1973-82. Following his tumultuous departure — he rejoined the band for a reunion tour in the mid-1990s and stayed through 2002 — Frehley continued making hard rock music with Frehley’s Comet, which originally included Anton Fig, then the drummer for the Paul Shaffer-led band on “Late Night with David Letterman.”

“Space Invader” is Frehley’s newest album, released Aug. 19. Fans can expect a healthy dose of songs from the new release, but Frehley will undoubtedly mix in a number of songs from his 30-year solo career.

Davies is best known for the worldwide acclaim garnered by Annapolis-based rock band Jimmie’s Chicken Shack. Davies, the lead singer and guitarist for JCS, has opened for numerous headliners at Rams Head On Stage, including Gary Louris of the Jayhawks. When JCS are not touring or recording, Davies performs with another successful Annapolis-based band Jarflys.

Tickets for the Nov. 18 show are $85 and can be purchased by visiting www.ramsheadonstage.com or calling 410-268-4545.

The Girl at the Rock Show: LIGHTS

I went to see LIGHTS at Rams Head Live on November 1 to witness her tickle a gnarly synth.

Last time I saw her at Rams Head Live, she was opening for Owl City… You go, Glen Coco!

One of my favorite things about a LIGHTS show is her stage presence. She’s very interactive with the crowd and gives a little insight to every other song or so. For example, she has a song called “Banner”, and someone in the audience made a banner with her name in lights, and she waved it around on stage while she sang that song.

The whole show was great! It’s just such a pleasure to watch her perform on the stage… her personality and love for what she does is as vibrant and positive as the music that comes out of her.

To put the cherry on top, my friend and I got to meet her after the show (the first 50 people who bought her CD got a free M&G)! We chatted for a bit about the new music and tour and she signed my poster and CD.

All in all, phenomenal night, and I highly recommend checking her out if you ever have the chance!

Jack Wagner of General Hospital Fame Performing at Rams Head On Stage this Friday, November 14!

JWa

Lightning does not often strike twice, and capturing it in a bottle can be amazingly tough – particularly for anyone who hopes to make an impression on both TV viewers and radio listeners. Jack Wagner is one of the handful of 1980s era actors who managed to successfully reach great heights on the music charts.

Wagner, who found his biggest career role as “Frisco Jones” on the ABC daytime drama “General Hospital,” will make a tour-stop in Annapolis on Friday to play Rams Head Onstage at 8 p.m. Wagner, 55, has put out six albums, most notably his 1984 smash “All I Need,” which hit No. 44 on the Billboard charts thanks to the hit single of the same name, which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s U.S. Adult Contemporary chart.

Wagner was a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” in 2012, and fans of a certain age might remember his roles on “Santa Barbara,” “Bold and the Beautiful,” and “Melrose Place.”

Attendees of Friday’s show at Rams Head On Stage can expect to hear selections from Wagner’s latest album, “On the Porch,” which features the songs “Drivin’ Miss Daisy,” “Right Key,” and “You and Me.” According to www.jackwagnermusic.com, “On the Porch” touches on Wagner’s ability to play “Americana and heartland roots.”

“On the Porch” will be among the merchandise sold before, during and after Wagner’s performance Friday at Rams Head On Stage. The album is also available on iTunes, Amazon and www.jackwagnermusic.com.

Tickets for Friday’s show in Annapolis are available by visiting www.ramsheadonstage.com or by calling the Rams Head box office at 410-268-4545.
