JUST KEEP BELIEVIN’ IN YOUR JOURNEY
In their 10th year together, DEPARTURE is the most respected JOURNEY tribute band in the nation. DEPARTURE replicates the look (think iconic tuxedo jackets), sound and feel of the original 80’s rock super group, Journey! All five DEPARTURE band members are from the original line-up and have been together from the very beginning. These veteran musicians love what they do and have developed an amazing on-stage chemistry. They pride themselves on giving their audiences an incredible high-energy, qualitative stage show from start to finish. DEPARTURE lead vocalist, Brian Williams, has an amazing singing voice flawlessly matching Steve Perry’s vocal range and on-stage movements. Michael Watkins emulates Smith’s drumming as one of the world’s top skinsmiths and Mark Schwartz matches Schon’s sonic shredding and has a way with melodicism that comes through whether he is totally just letting it rip or tastefully augmenting a ballad. They will be working the crowd with enthusiasm; you may witness flying leaps. Travel down memory lane to high school dances, first kisses and late-night cruises. And who wouldn’t want to relive those moments?
