Legacy Tribute: A Journey Through Foreigner and Journey

On a crisp Friday night in Schenectady, New York, music aficionados gathered at Frog Alley to witness a tribute to two iconic bands that have left an indelible mark on rock history. Legacy Tribute to Foreigner & Journey took the stage on March 8, 2024, delivering a masterful performance that transported audiences back to the heyday of classic rock.

Fronted by the charismatic crooner Joe Schepis, Legacy Tribute to Foreigner & Journey captivated listeners from the first note to the last. With impeccable control over his voice, Schepis effortlessly navigated between his chest voice, mix voice, and falsetto, infusing each song with nuance and emotion. His dynamic range was truly mesmerizing, drawing listeners in and holding them captive with every word.

Backing Schepis was a band of seasoned musicians who brought the music of Foreigner and Journey to life with precision and passion. Matthew Spataro’s guitar work was nothing short of magical, his fingers dancing across the strings to create melodies that soared and shimmered. Bill Mazzoli on bass and Brian Egan on drums provided the rhythmic foundation that gave each song its pulse, while Daniel Barnum’s keyboards added depth and texture to the band’s sound.

The first set of the evening was dedicated to Journey, and Schepis’s vocals channeled the spirit of Steve Perry with uncanny accuracy. From anthems like “Don’t Stop Believin'” to ballads like “Faithfully,” every song was performed with reverence and authenticity, earning thunderous applause from the crowd.

The second set saw Legacy Tribute to Foreigner & Journey shift gears to pay homage to Foreigner, seamlessly blending hits like “Cold As Ice” and “Urgent” into the setlist. Once again, Schepis’s vocals soared, capturing the essence of Lou Gramm’s iconic voice with ease.

As the night drew to a close, it was clear that Legacy Tribute to Foreigner & Journey had left an indelible impression on everyone in attendance. For fans of classic rock, this was more than just a concert; it was a journey through the timeless hits of two legendary bands.

For those who missed out on the magic of that evening, fear not.
