PHOTO (select to view enlarged photo)

The RockShow brings you right back to the big hair, wild colors and the golden era of rock and roll through the entire catalogue of Journey's music. Tommy K (lead singer/keyboard) will make you think Steve Perry just stepped out on stage while Michael Hawkes (guitars/vocals) brings the energy complete with killer guitar riffs and leg kicks. Levi Goodwin (bass/vocals) and Chris Bartnikowski (drums/vocals) round out the Journey Tribute. If you want to get closest to the real deal, The RockShow: Ultimate Tribute to Journey is the show for you.

A Michigan based band, The RockShow, has performed all over the country including appearances in Las Vegas, numerous festivals, and more than a few nightclubs. 

In honor of 9/11, a percentage of the proceeds from this concert will benefit the Barry Township Fire Departments.
