DSB lived up to their distinction of being known as one of “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands” for their live Journey tribute broadcast live from The Roxy on AXS.TV.

Katie Daryl introduced DSB and they proceeded to literally stun the crowd with their spot-on renditions of Journey classics.   And what an all-out, powerful performance they delivered.

These guys have movie star looks and rock star chops.  In addition to wowing the ladies, they truly are world-class musicians.    Everyone in attendance was quite blown away by how incredible DSB sounded.

While rocking out and playing great versions of Journey tunes, their stage presence and the smiles glued to their faces showed that they were having a truly great time.   Their smiles were all contagious and they had no problem making the crowd happy as everyone in attendance sang along to Journey songs.

From start to finish, the place was electric with a celebration and powerful performance of Journey’s music.

Dean Cain was on hand to support his brother, guitar hero Roger Cain, who rocked for a sold hour and played solo after solo.  There’s obviously a strong resemblance between the brothers.

Dean is a big DSB fan AND has been known to attend quite a few DSB gigs. The band says people freak out when they see him there in the crowd enjoying the music. DSC06500

It’s pretty safe to say that Juan Del Castillo has pitch-perfect vocal ability.   His ability to sing Steve Perry’s vocal parts are quite impressive and he kept the crowd going with his strong vocals throughout the set.   He’s a natural.

Scotty Kormos was phenomenal on drums .   He was focused and pulled off some very impressive drumming as well as some fancy stick work.     I watched closely to make sure he nailed the most memorable drum parts in “Separate Ways” and more than did justice to all of the songs, which is no small feat in itself .

Tony Love played great bass parts and really seemed to be enjoying himself.  The crowd was feeding off his energy.

Henry O’Neill did a great job with all the piano and keyboard parts.  He also has some serious vocal power, which made for great back-up vocals.

It’s not possible to pack all of Journey’s best songs into a one hour television show, but their set list was a great representation of the some of their most beloved, timeless classics.

The place started rocking with “Wheel In The Sky”, the crowd got out the glow sticks for “Lights”, they brought back the memories with “Open Arms” and rocked through the more great songs and ended their set with “Don’t Stop Believin’”, which served as the perfect way to close out the telecast.

After they concluded their set, they took time to come out into the crowd.  They met fans, took pictures and celebrated the exciting experience they just shared that few tribute bands will ever have the opportunity to achieve in their careers.  It was an exciting evening for everyone there.  And it was as good to watch on TV as it was live (I just finished the program and it was excellent!)
