After 14 years together, DEPARTURE has become the most respected Journey tribute band in the nation. DEPARTURE replicates the look, sound and feel of the original 80’s rock super group. Each of the five band members are veteran musicians and pride themselves on giving their audience an incredible high-energy, qualitative stage show from start to finish. Featured lead vocalist, Brian Williams, has an amazing singing voice flawlessly matching Steve Perry’s vocal range and movements.
DEPARTURE also highlights the early Journey years, when Gregg Rolie was lead singer, featuring Joel Hayes on keys and lead vocals. DEPARTURE’s performances are designed for the audience as a two-hour concert-styled experience, highlighting all the hit songs that everyone knows and loves as if they are watching a Journey concert during the 70s and 80’s. Their performance is professional, family-friendly and highly engaging for the audience. Everything heard during their performance is live with five vocalists and no pre-recorded tracks used. Performing over one hundred shows annually, DEPARTURE brings the very best of Journey to audiences of all ages.
