Trial By Fire Tribute to Journey
Friday, May 5 at 7 p.m.
In 1996, arena rock superstars Journey put the band back together to record their tenth studio album, Trial by Fire. Shortly after the release of this reunion album lead singer and signature voice, Steve Perry injured himself while training for what was to be a high energy road show. With Steve Perry unable to perform, the Trial by Fire tour became “the tour that never happened”. Imagine if Steve Perry had never injured himself on that fateful day. What would the Trial by Fire tour look like?
Flash forward to the present. TRIAL BY FIRE is born out of the hearts of five seasoned North Carolina – based musicians who have decided to answer that question. It is their vision to bring that 1996 tour to Journey fans across the country; to embrace the sound and visuals of the Steve Perry era of Journey.

The Swingin’ Medallions have been based out of the Greenwood South Carolina area, since the early 1960’s. The music most often associated with the band is beach music, frat rock, R&B, or shaggin’ music. Their hit song “Double Shot (of my Baby’s Love) became a million seller in 1966, and has been a party classic for college students for decades.
The members of the Swingin’ Medallions have changed over the past thirty years, but the high energy party style stage performance of the first Medallions has been passed down to the band that performs today.
