Flash mob in Russia plays Kiss with more than 270 musicians

January 19th, 2021

To honor Kiss’s final tour ever, almost 300 musicians gathered in Gorky Park, Moscow in 2019.

The song choice was “I Was Made For Loving You,” the band’s second Gold single which became a concert staple over the years. There’s hardly anyone who doesn’t know the catchy song, and the track was heavily influenced by the disco style that was popular in the late 1970s all over the United States.

For those of you who’ve always wanted to hear a pure rock version of the song, the group calling themselves Rock-n-Mob made sure to gather hundreds of people to jam like there was no tomorrow.

The Rock-n-mob project can be described as some sort of rock army where a lot of people come together to perform for free. It’s an orchestra of more than 70 musicians which includes drummers, guitarists, keyboardists, vocalists and bass players.

This video shows one of their first performances in Russia.

The group allows anyone to join their team—you can jump onboard even if you don’t play any musical instrument. There’s always the need for photographers, cameramen, editors and coordinators.

Organizing an event like this is much harder than it might seem.

So many people need to come together to rehearse and organizers have to coordinate all the musicians before and after the event. Besides all that, they need to sset up equipment, film everything and edit all the videos.

As this video shows, bringing people together through music is priceless.

The clip begins with footage from the air. So many musicians are together, and the organization is unbelievable. It seems like everyone knows their exact place, and the sight of seeing so many instruments in one place is stunning.

“I Was Made For Loving You” was released by American hard rock band Kiss on their 1979 album Dynasty.

Seeing so many people of all ages being taken over by that catchy rhythm is wonderful. The clip features musicians of all stripes enjoying a song from overseas.

Seeing the drummers playing in unison is the most amazing moment of it all.

Around 4:45, all the drummers lift their drumsticks at the same time and continue to play in perfect coordination. Such a perfect routine sends shivers down the spine! We have to assume that Kiss felt proud of this video—these guys found a perfect way to honor one of the group’s most popular songs.

“I Was Made For Loving You” is more than 40 years old, but the Rock-n-Mob cover brought it back to life, and we loved every moment of it.

Thank you Rock-n-Mob—we can’t wait to see more of this as soon as the pandemic is over!
