Angel Frontman Ready to Rock Poughkeepsie Saturday
Singer Frank Dimino of 1970’s rock band Angel plays The Chance in Poughkeepsie this Saturday, August 4. Showtime 7:30pm.
Angel formed in the mid 1970’s out of Washington, D.C. and were known to all dress in white and were known for their elaborate stage shows. They were signed to Casablanca Records and were label mates with Kiss. Angel was discovered by Gene Simmons of Kiss when they were playing in a nightclub. He eventually signed them to the Casablanca label. In fact, there was talk of Angel touring with Kiss as part of a ‘Heaven and Hell’ Tour which would have gotten the band much needed exposure but that tour never would happen. Unfortunately, due to the lack of exposure, Angel never achieved mass commercial success but they would develop a cult following with a lineup that featured Punky Meadows on guitar, Mickie Jones on bass, Frank DiMino on vocals, Gregg Giuffria on keyboards, Barry Brandt on drums. They released several albums between 1975 and 1981. Check out some classic footage of Angel in concert below.
