HUNTINGTON, New York, April 16
BY: Andrew Wroblewski
While the band goes by the name Voyage, it might prefer to take its audience on a journey.
Voyage, a tribute band to classic American rock band Journey, is set to take The Paramount’s stage on April 24.
“Singer Hugo is an absolute dead ringer for Steve Perry both visually and vocally, and has brought the show to critical acclaim through the many sold-out shows and private and corporate events throughout America,” the band’s official website reads.
Performing Journey’s biggest hits, such as “Any Way You Want It,” “Don’t Stop Believin,” and “Open Arms,” Voyage is also made up of New York musicians Robby Hoffman (guitar), Greg Smith (bass), Charlie Zeleny (drums) and Al Spinelli (keys).
The band cites its marquee performance as a show it played before a crowd of 50,000 at the Meadowlands.
“Voyage takes you back to the 80s era when the timeless music of Journey ruled the airwaves,” the website reads. “The talent of these five guys together has brought the meaning of tribute to a whole new level.”
Fellow tribute act, Songs In the Attic will also grace The Paramount’s stage on April 24 as David Clark is set to perform the music of Long Island native and former Huntington resident Billy Joel.
Tickets for the show are available from the box office or at www.paramountny.com from $15-$35. Doors are set to open at 7 p.m. and the bands will take the stage at 8 p.m.
