Artists: Frontiers - A Tribute to Journey
Frontiers | The Journey Tribute is THE national full-time touring tribute to Journey. Performing over 150 shows yearly at some of the most prestigious music venues, halls, and theatres in the country, Frontiers has become one of the most sought after tribute acts in the nation. The band regularly headlines sold out shows at House of Blues venues throughout the country. In addition to their extensive work with Live Nation, Frontiers has become a festival favorite, with a demanding schedule that keeps them on the road four to five days weekly throughout the entire year. The key to the band’s success is an unparalleled ability to live and breathe the music of Journey onstage – and a unique back-story that blurs the line between tribute and reality...
In May of 2007, Frontiers vocalist Jeremey Hunsicker attracted the attention of Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain and founding member and guitarist Neal Schon. In short order, Hunsicker found himself in San Francisco, writing songs and rehearsing the Journey catalog with the band, meeting with music legend Irving Azoff (manager of Christina Aguilera, The Eagles, Journey), and discussing an offer to move forward as the new vocalist of Journey. As the summer drew on, however, it became clear that the band was on a different timetable, and with the birth of his first child imminent, Hunsicker asked the band to consider other alternatives.
His time with the band proved fruitful, however, as Hunsicker received RIAA Platinum Sales certification for his contribution to the Revelation CD. As word of Hunsicker’s brief brush with fame spread, demand for Frontiers continued to grow, and in June of 2008, the band became a full time endeavor, staying on the road for days at a time, and doing the sometimes grueling groundwork of breaking the band to a national audience.
In addition to Jeremey Hunsicker, the band consists of guitarist Stephen Chesney, bass player Greg Eanes, and drummer Chris Castelda, with touring keyboard players Chad Campbell and Billy Jones alternating shows. The band’s positivity, professionalism, and personal relationship with their fans is a testament to their staying power, as generations of Journey fans return to Frontiers’ always evolving performances year after year.
As nostalgia for all things Journey has reached a fever pitch, Frontiers has continued to recreate the music in the spirit of vintage live Journey in a way no others can. Visit Frontiers at www.journeytributeband.com, or www.facebook.com/frontiers.journeytribute.
