The KISS episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” airs this Sunday, February 21 at 8 pm (EST).
In the spirit of the KISS Army, when the ABC hit show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” told legendary rockers KISS about a family of needy KISS fans in Gainesville, Florida, who started a home-based, non-profit music school while their own home is falling down around them, the band heeded the call and launched the offense during their Tulsa stop on their North American KISS/Alive 35 tour.
The Wagstaff Family, who are huge KISS fans, flew to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to meet the band who played at the BOK Center in Tulsa on December 8 as part of their North American KISS/Alive 35 tour in support of Sonic Boom, their first album in 11 years.
The next morning KISS and The Wagstaff Family, on behalf of Gibson and Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, a non-profit music group, met at the Wilson Middle School in Tulsa to present $100,000 in instruments from Gibson to the school as well as their own school back home in Florida. Some of the students at the school in Tulsa even donned the famous KISS make up to show their support.
