When Journey was in need of searching for a new lead singer once again, they looked everywhere. Jeremey Hunsicker was one of those people, but due to personal issues declined the job. Hunsicker is from Virginia and is the lead singer of the popular Journey cover band “Frontiers”, although he and his band may not sell out arenas and stadiums, they enjoy what they do. People are shocked when he sings these Journey songs simply because he sounds a lot like “the voice” himself, Steve Perry.
Councilmember Tom LaBonge will mark the summer solstice tonight with a sunset hike to the top of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park, together with the consular corps and sister cities of the City of Los Angeles. This international affair, now in its 16th year, combines enjoyment of the longest day of the year with an international potluck that celebrates the incredible diversity of the City of Los Angeles. All are invited to enjoy a beautiful sunset and bring international food. Please meet at the north end of the Griffith Observatory parking lot near the Charlie Turner Trailhead at 6 p.m. TODAY for the gentle 1.5 mile walk up to Mount Hollywood, 1625 feet above sea level. Arrangements will be made for those who need special transportation, with shuttles running every 20 minutes until 7 p.m.
It’s sad to see the owner/booker behave like that. They just like to wield that little bit of power they have. Clearly no one has told them that their premises aren’t in the centre of the universe.
MJ: We don’t practice really. When we learn, or have learned, songs we do our homework, then we apply it during sound check. We work pretty fast at getting it down. Besides, what better place to play it than the stage, since that’s where we will be doing it any way?
A lot of work I do is with the eighties tribute act, the working bands and function work along with original work and recording! Word of mouth works well. You do a gig or work for one band and if you do a good job, you get recommended and the networking works well this way! It has worked well for me and is part of the music business.
The Blind Tiger is kind of a dive bar, but people love it. It’s fairly small, with a few tables and bar seats, pool tables, and a big open floor next to the stage. They have cheap drink specials Monday through Thursday, and a wide variety of live music almost every night. 21 and up.
I know you all experience chills when listening to these, so be prepared. I have never seen these guys in concert, but I plan on it very soon! Great job guys on performing these great classics, you are the real deal.
