Journey Revisited takes Windmill Cove by storm - 'the best band we've ever booked here'

There's nothing like setting a new standard for a venue, and the Windmill Cove Resort and Marina in Stockton, CA hosted JR for an evening performance of hits on July 12 that kept the crowd on its feet (and on shore) long after the sun went down.

Journey Revisited lead singer Jeff Salado was surprised at both the turnout and the diligence of the fans, who stayed and danced and sang along. "I really thought we'd lose half of the crowd, since most people at the marina come ashore for the performances by the bands, then pull out in the boats to leave before dark. We came on last, but almost everyone stayed to listen to JR; we really rocked out for them.

Windmill Cove owner Rich Hogan said Journey Revisited was "the best band we've ever booked here -- and it is the largest crowd to date."

Journey Revisited draws record crowd at San Carlos Music in the Park

It was a beautiful summer day at Burton Park in San Carlos, California, and Journey Revisited filled the venue with an enthusiastic crowd for the town's 24th Annual Music in the Park series on July 11.



Record numbers of people came out to relax, dance, and sing along to JR's rendition of the San Francisco-based rock band's classic melodic sounds on the summer evening.

Cell phone video by JR fan Mahmood Saljooqi from the concert below captures the fidelity and quality of JR's delivery that energized the crowd. At the beginning of the vid, watch the slamming solo on the skins by Dave Hawkes and a rousing effort by the band and vocalist Jeff Salado on Don't Stop Believing.

We're live! The new fan-focused, mobile-friendly Journey Revisited web site soft launches

Hello fans and friends,

Journey Revisited has undergone a redesign to allow cell phones & Mac computers to easily view our site. The link is www.JrnyRevisited.com, and it's now "live". The original URL will be restored -- www.JourneyRevisited.com -- so that either brings you to this new web site.

This new format will allow you to keep up to date on JR-related news at all times, and includes links to our Twitter feed, Facebook page as well as our other social media accounts, listings of our upcoming gigs and a fan feedback page. Pardon our dust, it's still a work in progress-- we look forward to hearing from you!

I want to personally thank Pam Spaulding for all her time & knowledge that went into the new site. I also want to thank Silvana Cee for her time spent in making the JR NATION fan Facebook page and for her help in assisting Pam on the JR page. Thank you both for your talents and friendship.

Jeff Salado
Lead singer, Journey Revisited
