Journey: Home


Journey performed ballads and scorchers with equal skill and passion led by Neal Schon's remarkable guitar and the soaring vocals of Steve Perry. Formed in San Francisco in 1973, the group was initially a combination of ex-Santana members Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie, and ex- Frumious Bandersnatch members. The band was steeped in the psychedelic and jazz fusion sounds of San Francisco and pushed out into the territory of progressive and hard rock with songs like “Of A Lifetime” and “I’m Gonna Leave You.” In 1977 they found Steve Perry – one of the all-time great rock voices. The band was soon performing in sold out stadiums around the world. Their biggest hit, “Don’t Stop Believin” is a song that has gone beyond its own place and time and has become a cultural anthem. The band continues to tour the world with their new lead singer Arnel Pineda, and their classic hits continue to rock the world.
