Website: journeytribute.com

E5C4P3 was formed in June of 1993. From that year through 1999 E5C4P3 traveled nationwide and paid tribute to one of rock history’s most beloved bands performing for tens of thousands of fans. E5C4P3 is still known today as the original and best Journey tribute band to ever exist. In 1999 E5C4P3 went on hiatus and the world was suddenly filled with multiple Journey tributes trying to fill the void that E5C4P3 left behind. In 2008, E5C4P3 was reformed to recreate the magic of a Journey concert like no one else can. The band covers the music with a note-for-note accuracy that is second to none and performs each show with the high-energy excitement of a real Journey concert as well as visually recreating the essence of early 80’s Journey! Focusing on the ‘Steve Perry era’, E5C4P3 covers all the hits from ‘Lights’ and ‘Wheel In The Sky’ to ‘Separate Ways’ and ‘Be Good To Yourself’ including occasional surprises for all the die-hard Journey fans.

For all of the countless fans that have never stopped believing, we’re back!!! And we welcome you “into the presence of Journey” with E5C4P3 – THE Journey Tribute!!!

the spazmatics

The Spazmatics When: Sat, Sept 1 @ 9:00pm
Website: spazmatics.org

In the Oktoberfest Bier Garten, the beer and food are German as ever, but the music… well, let’s just say we could also call it a Rock Garden.

In terms of celebrating German heritage, to their credit, all the members of the Spazmatics drive VW bugs – or at the least they look like renegades from the Geek Squad.

Don’t be fooled, however, these nerds can play, and regularly pack houses like Winking Lizard, Vosh, Scoundrels, and The Hard Rock Cafe. It may have been a while since you’ve heard the likes of The Buggles, Dead or Alive, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, or the wistful crooning of Howard Jones. Surely, someone always is to blame, but it’s not the Spazmatics! They’ll have you rockin’ to The Clash, The Cars, and The Cure, so put on your best sweater vest, pocket protector and clip on tie, and come out and join the fun!

Bruce In the USA: The World’s #1 Tribute to Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band

Bruce In The USA is much more than just another tribute… This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E St. Band show.

Matt Ryan, from the World Famous “Legends In Concert” cast, began playing the Springsteen character in 2000, in Legends “full scale” Las Vegas show.

The show has hosted musicians from such acts/bands as Queen/Paul Rogers, Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall and Oats, Joe Cocker, The Ojays, Aretha Franklin, David Cassidy, The Temptations, Slash… and so many more.This high end, powerhouse, band has taken this genre of performance art to a whole new level, making it the World’s #1 Tribute to the E Street Band’s musical legacy.

To millions of diehard fans around the world, it’s Springsteen’s marathon, party-like performances that have elevated him to hero status. Bruce’s legendary concerts (in the largest arenas) sell-out within hours of their announced sale. For those even lucky enough to get a ticket, there was nothing that could fill the aching void in between Bruce’s long-awaited tours…until now….

The Bruce In The USA show was born on the Las Vegas Strip in the winter of 2004, with its debut at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, in the majestic “V Theatre”. The show assaulted the senses in a fun-filled and exciting party atmosphere on the Vegas Strip, while suspending disbelief for even the toughest skeptics. They’ve been met with critical acclaim, from the Stone Pony, large theaters, and Performance Art Centers across the country, as well as corporate events spanning across the globe for over a decade. Sell out crowds are on their feet from the first song to the last.
