Watched Tribute Band Departure Last Night

Postby Aaron » Mon Mar 20, 2017 12:54 pm

I had the pleasure of watching a tribute band called "Departure" in Destin, FL last night.

http://thejourneytributeband.com/

Here's a quick summary:
- they played almost 2.5 hours without stopping
- covered Journey in the original key without stopping
- drummer was capable
- guitarist was capable but needs to learn the correct solos
- bassist was good
- keys guy was good and covered Rolie reasonably well
- The dude singing was a front man, owned the material with confidence
- Singer was PLAYING with the material and range, zero stress, owned it
- He hit every high note and went higher than Perry on many occasions (Perry recorded or Perry live)
- Singer's tonality was a bit piercing and lacked the Perry "Love" IMO (would be a good fit for Judaist Priest or Iron Maiden)
- Overall they we're great, put on a lively show, and covered the material with authority, WELL DONE

Singer is impressive, some of the head banging by the other guys looked a little out of place to me...lol...(AWYWI)
but I can see why you enjoyed them, as you say he looked to have no problem with the high parts and pretty
good tone as well.

Only watched Lights. Nice tenor voice. Who is this guy?

The singer is Brian Williams. Don't know the guy. He was playing with the material range wise. Dude was a good front man but in my opinion lacked the Perry "love" on vocals. They are definitely worth a look for a 15 buck ticket.
