Journey tribute concert is Saturday at LBWCC

The huge popularity of an Eagles tribute performance last year prompted Covington Arts Council executive director Paula Harr to book a Journey tribute band for the current season.

The group will perform at 7 p.m. this Sat., Jan. 21, in the Dixon Center for the Performing Arts at LBW Community Center.

“This is a wonderful, fantastic Journey tribute for all of our rock and roll fans,” Harr said. “We are hoping everybody will come and rock out with us again.”

Described as a stunningly accurate tribute to the music of Journey, the band recreates the experience of a Journey concert from the band’s most prolific period, employing some of Nashville’s top musicians, many of whom have performed, written or recorded with both Journey and Steve Perry.

The audience is sure to hear the sounds of “Lovin’, Touchin’ Squeezin’,” “Stone in Love,” “Lights,” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” “Feeling That Way,” “Wheel in the Sky,” “Open Arms,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Faithfully,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

“Your audience will feel as if they’ve traveled through a time warp to witness a Journey concert from the 1980s,” one reviewer wrote.

Advance tickets are $18, or two for $30, and $12 for students. They are available at Harold’s Furniture, The Andalusia Star-News, and Young’s Florist.

Tickets are $20 at the door.
