Resurrection - A Journey Tribute

image2

Setting out to create the most authentic Journey experience anyone  has ever witnessed, Vic, Ryan, and the band spent countless hours  discussing the look, sound, production, and FEEL needed for this Journey  tribute to deliver a live experience that would resonate on the highest  level with the most avid Journey fan. Over two rehearsals, the newly assembled musicians learned eight of  Journey's greatest hits for a promotional video shoot. On March 10,  2014, at Gray's on Main in Franklin, TN, the band struck its first notes  in front of a live audience. The response quickly validated the passion  Vic and Ryan had poured into the project for half a year and cemented  the reality that this was going to be much more than a rehearsal to  cover two shows scheduled for Branson Landing that summer.

The Original Drifters

    Celebrating Sixty Three Years of Magical Music Moments  1953 – 2016 

  THE  LEGACY CONTINUES! 
Music’s Drifters represent more than the story of a single  group’s success.  Changes in personnel and management have led over the  years to the sprouting    of many Drifters permutations, but BILL  PINKNEY used the name / mark THE ORIGINAL DRIFTERS® since the 1950s, and  his legacy continues. Organizer  Clyde McPhatter, BILL PINKNEY  ), and Gerhart and Andrew Thrasher met while singing gospel.  When  Atlantic Records rejected McPhatter’s first offering of singers, these  men joined forces, signed with the company, and established in 1953 the  foundation upon which a music legacy was subsequently built.

Thirty  five years later in 1988, originals MCPHATTER, PINKNEY, GERHART  THRASHER and four later Drifters were inducted into the Rock and Roll  Hall          of Fame, which filmed PINKNEY’s oral history in 2001 for  its Legends Series. 

Music Icon BILL PINKNEY was a Negro  Baseball League sandlot pitcher, a     World War II Presidential  Citation recipient with five Bronze Stars, a Rhythm         & Blues  Foundation Pioneer Award recipient, a member of the United Group Harmony  Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, Beach Music Hall of Fame,  and a  Gospel Hall of Fame Stellar Award recipient.

The Tokens

The Tokens: In 1961 THE TOKENS, four boys from Brooklyn, recorded, "The Lion Sleeps  Tonight" on the RCA label. The song (originally a Zulu folk song called  "M'bube" and Anglicized to "Wimoweh") soared up the charts to become  the number one hit in the nation. To date it has sold over 15 million  copies and is known throughout the world. In a survey conducted by the  National Endowment for the Arts and the Record Industry Association of  America The Tokens' classic recording of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"  placed 159th in the top 365 records of ALL TIME. 


     THE TOKENS' other hits include "Tonight I Fell In Love," "I Hear  Trumpets Blow," and "Portrait of My Love." They have also produced many  number one recordings for groups such as THE CHIFFONS ("He's So Fine"  & "One Fine Day"), THE HAPPENINGS ("See You In September & I Got  Rhythm") and TONY ORLANDO & DAWN ("Candida," "Knock Three Times,"  & " Tie A 


Yellow Ribbon.") True rock pioneers, they were among the  first to successfully use the falsetto lead voice, a sound that later  influence groups from the Four Seasons and the Beach Boys to Led  Zeppelin and Rush. They were also the first group to play their own  instrument tracks for recording sessions.
