Based in Los Angeles, CA, ESCAPE has become the premiere Journey tribute band since its founding over a decade ago.
The band was founded by keyboard/guitar/vocal man Stu Simone, best known as the touring keyboardist for Poison in 1999 and 2000. Lead guitarist Jay Gore has been touring and recording with many top acts such as Lauryn Hill and Mindy Abair but still finds time to play with Escape.
Drummer Gary Ponder and bassist Clark Souter are two of the busiest rock players in LA. Clark toured with Journey opening act John Waite, watching Journey from the wings and chatting with Journey Bassist Ross Valory.
Escape's "Steve Perry" is Dave Alcantar, who is literally booked 7 nights a week between Escape and his impresive one-man-band show. Besides sound like Mr. Perry, Dave dress the part and physically resembles SP.
Together, these five put on a powerful rock concert experience, just like Journey might have played in their prime (1980-83).
With the key players having played together for nearly a decade, Escape can play up to three hours of Journey material. Escape is a seasoned tribute act, having played concerts in California, Nevada, New York, Florida, Canada, Arizona, Oregon, Minnesota, Montana, Utah, Idaho, South Dakota, Washington, and more. If you want the next best thing to seeing Journey in its prime, look no further!
