About The Band

Joey Fatale is the creator and owner of Mini Kiss, the Hottest Littlest Band in
the World. Mini Kiss was born on September 1, 1996 when he was moving from one location to another. As he was putting away his Albums/Vinyl he came across his
Non-Opened Alive Kiss album which to this day has the Original Lick on Tattoos
and separate pictures of each member. When he looked at the album he had this
huge thought of having a Little People Kiss Tribute Band.
So his first gig was October 30, 1996 when a friend that he always
worked for, Andy Hirsh, greatest guy and manager of a club called The
Lava Lounge in New York City. Andy said to him, "I need something
different this year." So he told him about his cool idea Mini Kiss, "it's a
tribute band made up of four little people dressed up like Kiss." His
response: "Joey, that's an awesome idea." So Joey had a month to gather
four guys and come up with costumes and make-up. Craig, Mike,
Victor and Joey got all these 80's clothes, ripped some of them up and
threw some paint on our faces. It was corny but the clothes were cool.
They get to the venue; have a couple of drinks before show time to loosen
up. Their first show was lip-synching to a Kiss CD and playing blow-up
guitars like you see at parties. They stood on top of the bar and sung
five songs from the actual Kiss CD. THEY WERE A HIT!! Cops had to
come because the place was mobbed, but they loved us too!! We took
some pictures outside with them. It was so cool.

After that show they got called from people that knew Andy who wanted them
to perform for them. The band didn't even have a set or people, they would just get
who was available. It just kept growing and growing in popularity. I guess
it was because of the hype of being the Ultimate Band in the world. And
BAM Minikiss was born.

At the time when Joey created Minikiss he was in another Little People band
with these Jersey guys, but there were too many chiefs and not enough
Indians. So he left and continued with Minikiss. They even have copy cats
now!! To Joey imitation is the best form of flattery. Joey says "Me imitating the best
band in the world because I love Kiss and so the copy cats must love
Minikiss because they are copying us. What can I say?"
