ABOUT THE BANDS …..
The Black in Black tribute band is an incredible, exciting, high energy reproduction of a concert performance of AC/DC. All the members of Back in Black live in Dallas/Fort Worth area and are experienced musicians not only dedicated to the sound and look, but also capturing the power and excitement of AC/DC. We stand above the other AC/DC tributes because we include tribute performances of both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson. Back In Black was formed in late 2000 by former LA bandmates Mike Mroz (Angus) and Darren Caperna (Bon & Brian). Mike had always recognized the potential of this project due to Darren’s uncanny ability to transcend both the spirit of Bon Scott and Brian Johnson into his voice. Ken Schiumo (drums), Scott Lepage (guitar), and Eric Sykes were recruited from other great Dallas bands. They are one of the first tribute bands chosen by Live Nation/CBS Radio to tour all the House of Blues! 2013 they were featured on AXS TV Worlds Greatest Tribute Bands and have performed their first Symphony concert with the Calgary Philharmonic in Oct 2013. They toured major arenas and theaters as part of the Classic Rock Experience in 2008/2009. They Headlined concerts at the Calgary Saddledome and Edmonton Arena. For the forth year in a row they will headline the worlds largest Tribute Festival, Jacks Throwback in Dallas. They also performed to over 36,000 people at the Bone Bash in Ft Worth, and have been recruited by Sony Music, AC/DC’s new record label, to promote catalog sales. 20th Century Fox have chosen Back in Black over all other tribute bands to record AC/DC’s classics “TNT” and “A Long Way to the Top” for two of their movies, Napoleon Dynamite and Garage Days. Back in Black has also performed with Cheap Trick, Foghat, Bad Company, Loverboy, Jackyl, Blue Oyster Cult, Grand Funk Railroad, Head East, Seven Mary Three, Cardboard Vampires, Living Colour, Better than Ezra, Ted Nugent, Warrant, April Wine, Great White, Night Ranger, Kansas, Quiet Riot, Violent Femmes and Vince Neil of Motley Crue.

Infinite Journey is a high-energy, Dallas-based tribute band dedicated to recreating the magic and memories of the timeless hits of Journey. So many things make up Journey – the unmistakable voice of Steve Perry, rich, multi-part vocal harmonies, melodic Neal Schon guitar solos, and dynamic keyboards are reproduced note-for-note. All of the instruments and classic tones are meticulously crafted to faithfully capture that perfect iconic Journey sound. No Journey tribute act is complete without “the voice.” Infinite Journey’s frontman, Donovan Duke, has the pipes to deliver those soulful and soaring soprano lead vocals. Let your own ears be the judge. With more than 30 years of making great music, the Journey fan base is vast and covers multiple generations. Music fans of all ages hold a special place in their hearts for so many of those classic songs. Don’t Stop Believin’….Wheel in the Sky….Any Way You Want It….Separate Ways….the list goes on and on. Who doesn’t remember slow dancing to Faithfully or Open Arms? Singing along to Stone in Love? Playing air guitar to Don’t Stop Believin’?
