Journey Revisited in Concert with The HOTS @ Citrus Fair Fairgrounds
Sep 28 @ 6:00 pm

Local band, The HOTS go on stage at 6:00 pm. THIS IS NOT YOUR MAMA’S COVER BAND. Think Beatles, followed by Britney Spears, followed by Metallica. Sounds crazy, but it works. The HOTS have gained a following by taking songs their audiences know and love, and making them come alive in a whole new way. No backing tracks here, and no two shows are ever the same. They call it old school rock with new wheels.

The band has had an amazing 2019 already, playing Guy Fieri’s birthday party in January, where they were joined onstage by both Sammy Hagar and Chad Kroeger from Nickelback. Guy Fieri was so taken with the band that he insisted they come down to Disneyland to follow his performance at California Adventure’s Food and Wine Festival in March.

Journey Revisited will go live at approximately 7:30 pm. Since 2011, Journey Revisited has been dedicated to replicating the sound of classic Journey through their spectacular live performances. These exceptional musicians cover all of the fan favorites from Don’t Stop Believin’ and Wheel in the Sky to Any Way You Want It, Lights and many more — and they do it without pre-recorded backing tracks or digital vocal enhancements. Journey Revisited delivers the organic live sound of the album oriented rock era, just the way you remember it.

Two lead vocalists, Frank House and Kevin Jachetta bring the classic Steve Perry- Gregg Rolie sound with their authentic re-creation of Journey’s distinctive vocals. The band has toured throughout the west coast, playing fairs, casinos, festivals, and private parties.
