Foreigner's Journey

Almost any music fan who came of age in the 1980s will cite Foreigner and Journey

as bands that sound tracked their young life, bands that are forever lodged in their

mind. Back then, the two acts might have been separated by an ocean, but together

they helped define the “magic era” of classic rock.

At one point not too long ago, they toured the world as a one-two combination, but

don’t count on it happening again. Luckily, you can count on Foreigners Journey, a

veritable tribute-band supergroup, to deliver the unforgettable experience of seeing

both bands in one knockout show.

Foreigners Journey comprises veteran members of the music scene, guys who’ve

made it with their own original music. But since 2014 they’ve also dedicated

themselves to something larger, a supergroup intent on bringing the sounds, sights,

and emotional thrills of two of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest bands to eager fans around the

Northeast and beyond.

Featuring American Idol finalist, Rudy Cardenas on Lead Vocals. Keyboardist Paul

Kochanski, Bassist Joe Pettengill and Drummer Art Mambuca (and his sprawling

double kick-drum kit) all played together in the Journey tribute band Captured. And,

rounding out the band is hotshot Guitarist Kevin Alexander Herrera and Adam Tese

on Saxophone.

Their repertoire of classics hits by Foreigner and Journey and a few surprises

provides a crowd-pleasing night of unforgettable music.

From power ballads like “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” “I Want to Know What Love

Is,” and “Faithfully” to anthems like “Jukebox Hero,” “Stone In Love,” “Cold As Ice,”

“Don’t Stop Believin’,” and “Separate Ways,” Foreigners Journey are more than a

tribute band. They’re a time machine, and their energy is infectious.

About Rudy Cardenas:

“With over 18 years in the LA music scene, Rudy Cardenas has made his mark on the industry with gritty, powerful, yet undeniably beautiful vocals reminiscent of a young Steve Perry. Graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Vocal Performance, Rudy has taken his studies in the Rock, Classical, Jazz, and Latin genres to create a sound all his own.

Best known as a season 6 American Idol finalist, Rudy has taken that experience and platform to share his talents nationally. For the last 5 years Rudy has toured with the UK sensation The Classic Rock Show, an all-star classic rock review who have played 33 yearly sold out shows across Europe. Rudy’s solo album “Fly” on record label Frontiers Music, is available now on all platforms.

Now, as the lead singer for FOREIGNERS JOURNEY, Rudy and the band deliver heartwarming power ballads like “Faithfully,” “I Want to Know What Love Is,” to anthems like “Feels Like The First Time,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Cold As Ice” and “Any Way You Want It,” Foreigners Journey with Rudy Cardenas are more than a tribute band. They’re a time machine, and their energy is infectious!”
