TheBuzzEscaped at Jackrabbit Lounge

Journey tribute band to rock Jackrabbit Lounge

Escaped, the amazing new Phoenix-based Journey knockoff band, is set to play Jackrabbit Lounge on Weds., June 27. Doors open at 9pm with Soliloquies featuring Jeordie and Josh Foster (singer-guitarist and songwriter for Manufactured Defects), followed by the 5-piece Escaped (named after one of the classic rock band’s greatest albums). Their lead singer is a dead ringer for Steve Perry and sounds just like him, too. Jackrabbit Lounge, fast becoming downtown Scottsdale’s best live music venue, is at 4280 N. Drinkwater, a block north of Indian School. No cover!
