Kashmir is a collection of experienced musicians who have come together to musically salute one of the greatest rock and roll acts of all time, Led Zeppelin. From the laser and smoke show to the uncanny resemblance of lead singer Jean Violet to Robert Plant, Kashmir has successfully recreated the unique sound and energy of a Led Zeppelin concert at more than 500 performances.

Mr. Speed has made their mark in KISStory for the last 16 years by bringing the music, hair and make-up of KISS to fans all over the Midwest. With full KISS costumes, Marshall Stacks, a 10-piece  Pearl drum set and signature model guitars of KISS themselves, Mr. Speed has kept the classics of KISS alive by bridging the gap from the fans of the ‘70s to the new legions of the KISS army.
