Military members get chance to be roadies for KISS

Now members of the Air Force will be part of the KISS army. The legendary rock band KISS is starting a residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in November and has selected three local, active military members to serve as roadies for a week during their stay.

Master Sergeant Jason Borkhuis of Nellis Air Force Base, Sergeant First Class Cory DeMille of the U.S. Army Reserves and Technical Sergeant Richard Reichert of Nellis Air Force Base were chosen by the band to be roadies.

The men will work closely with the KISS crew and be part of the VIP experience. They will also get video and photographs of their days as a roadie for the iconic band. They also get a complimentary hotel stay at the Hard Rock Hotel.

The KISS Rocks Vegas residency will be their band’s third time getting help from members of the military.

KISS Rocks Vegas starts Nov. 5 and lasts through Nov. 23. Tickets are available through the Hard Rock Hotel box office.
