This high-energy band is sure to play all of your favorites and leave you wanting more!

It would be fair to say any Journey tribute band is only as good as its lead vocalist. Fill a big stage with top notch musicians, add state-of-the-art lighting and audio, and have the band perform a flawless introduction to a classic Journey hit, such as 'Separate Ways'. That's a good start to the evening; however, all the while, Journey fans in the audience will be anxiously awaiting the answer to the only question in their minds: "Can that guy center-stage sing like Steve Perry?" For the many devoted fans who travel for hours and hundreds of miles across state lines to hear Ryan Christopher deliver the goods any time he performs, the answer is a resounding, "Yes!" Ryan spent the past several years fronting the Journey tribute band, 'Chain Reaction-A Tribute to Journey'. On the strength of Ryan's vocals, the band developed a devoted following in the South Eastern part of the United States. The band's outdoor performance at Branson Landing in Branson, Missouri annually entertained tens of thousands of thrilled Journey fans. Now, partnering with keyboardist and avid Journey fan, Vic White, Ryan sets his sights higher with "RESURRECTION-A JOURNEY TRIBUTE". The band is tight, including musicians who have worked directly with Journey. The stage production, including an actual Journey tour drum kit, re-creates the look of Journey shows from the glory days of arena rock. However, all of this would be pure folly were it not for the spectacle of Ryan Christopher's jaw-dropping delivery of the classic Journey songs we all know and love. Come witness the spectacle that is 'Journey Resurrection' and experience the closest thing there is to going back in time to an actual Journey concert from the 'Steve Perry' era!
Concert begins at 8 pm - Don't miss another incredible concert by Resurrection-A Journey Tribute!
