Journey Revisited gets slamming review for "blowing the roof off" again at the Monterey County Fair!

We already know that the guys can blow the roof of venues; the classic sound of Journey is a hit with audiences wherever Journey Revisited plays. But there's nothing like a review like this one, in the Examiner/AXS.com by Seth Metoyer, that makes it clear the band stands head and shoulders above not only tributes, but gives the band it honors a run for the money!
On Saturday night, a large crowd gathered to watch the very impressive Journey tribute band “Journey Revisited”. I’d first seen this band live back in 2013 at the Monterey County Fair. They blew the roof off, which is still off as a matter of fact. The current lineup for Journey Revisited consists of Jeff Salado ( Lead Vocals), Val Popovic (Lead Guitar & vocals) Kevin Jachetta (Keyboards) Keytar (Guitar, & vocals) Michael Gonzales (Bass & vocals) and Dave Hawkes (Drums/Percussion). 
The first thing I noticed about Journey Revisited was how similar singer Jeff Salado moves and sings like original Journey vocalist, Steve Perry. Salado hits all the right notes and has a great stage presence. He’s interactive with the crowd and takes many photos of the crowd and selfies from the stage. I’ve been a fan of the original Journey band for years and it’s almost eerie how similar Journey Revisited is to the original act. The tribute band performed many top Journey hits including "Don't Stop Believin'", "Open Arms", and my favorite Journey song "Wheel in The Sky". 
In recent history, the original Journey band replaced Perry with the amazing vocalist Arnel Pineda. I tell you what though; check out Jeff Salado sometime if you haven’t already. He gives Pineda a run for his money, and I personally think Salado’s vocal style is even closer to Perry’s than Pineda’s is – and that’s saying something. Find Journey Revisited on their official Facebook page here.
The band is stoked. A reaction from frontman Jeff Salado:
Wow. That's just great, we are all grateful and amazed how people accept what we do. It's our pleasure.

Next up are props from another upcoming venue - The Deadwood Mountain Grand Events Center, Deadwood, SD in the Rapid City Journal:
They are hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Journey tribute band in the business,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand Entertainment/Sales & Marketing Director Susan Kightlinger. “Our guests readily rock out to cover bands and just keep asking for more. Journey Revisited delivers on that request.

Armed with the trademark soulfulness and range of Perry’s vocals, Journey Revisited – Reliving the Glory Days of Journey, combines the amazing vocal talents and dynamic instrumentals that separate this band from all other cover/tribute bands.

Founded by Jeff Salado in 2005, this Tribute to Journey takes the audience on a rhythmic ride to an era when rock dominated the radio airwaves. With Salado as Steve Perry and a dedication to providing the best sounding Journey Tribute Show for each and every venue they play and audience they rock, the Journey classics keep coming all night long."
