Frontiers is the world’s number one tribute to Journey. These five talented, skilled, renowned NYC area musicians recreate the music of Journey to perfection, note for note – every nuance, every iconic riff, all the feels. Frontiers covers all the greatest hits of Journey, taking you back to the late 70’s during Journey’s magical inception with Gregg Rolie and Neal Schon, and to the 80’s with Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain, when Journey’s timeless, chart topping hits such as Open Arms, Separate Ways, Send Her My Love, Faithfully, Stone in Love, Don’t Stop Believing, Who’s Crying Now, Anyway You Want It, and many others ruled the airwaves.

When both Steve Perry and Neal Schon proclaim to the world via Twitter that Frontiers is their favorite Journey tribute band, you know you’re in for an authentic, unmatched, amazing experience.

DAMON MARKS

DAMON MARKS

GUITARIST / VOCALS

While it appears as though an increasing amount of rock guitarists had become “one dimensional” circa the early 21st century, there were exceptions to the rule, such as Damon Marks. To prove this claim, all you have to do is inspect the varied artists he has played with over the years, including R&B/gospel singer Jermaine Paul and rocker Bret Michaels, among others.

Marks has also made it a point to give back to others – beginning in 2010, he founded the Traveling Guitar Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to ensure that school children have access to high-quality musical instruments and instruction during a time when school systems across the country are facing budgetary restraints. Such artists as Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Daryl “DMC” McDaniel, Heart, Melanie Fiona, Leon Thomas III, Ariana Grande, Mike Reid, Victoria Justice, Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton, and Rick Springfield have donated their time to the organization
