Kevin Chalfant’s Journey Experience features Kevin Chalfant, and features all of the lights, sounds and Journey-esque atmosphere associated with what you expect from a show called the Journey Experience. This is not a cover band but a very talented singer who actually shared the stage with Journey, replacing Steve Perry for a time. He performs all the hits that made Journey famous; one fabulous hit after another. Kevin was also the lead singer for the band The Storm, whose song “I’ve Got A Lot To Learn About Love” was one of the most frequently aired rock radio hits of 1992 and 1993.
Kevin Chalfant joined 707 as lead vocalist back in 1981. The Megaforce album (and subsequent movie soundtrack single) screamed up the Billboard charts and landed the group a Top 20 single. Chalfant and 707 toured with all of the top touring acts including REO Speedwagon, Rainbow, Scorpions, Ted Nugent, Loverboy and many others. Chalfant would later enjoy top 10 success with his band The Storm. After a hiatus from music in the mid-90s, he has remained active in solo and group projects, and has stepped in as temporary lead vocalist for Journey (1994) and The Alan Parsons Live Project (2003). Chalfant has been an added attraction to the Gregg Rolie live show in recent years, as well as a valued participant of Jim Peterik’s World Stage, and most recently with The Voices of Rock Radio. https://www.facebook.com/kevinchalfant
