Gather your friends, and get ready to rock with SFO - A Tribute to Journey at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 24, at the Athens Theatre in DeLand.

SFO, a six-pack of top-notch musicians from Florida, Minnesota and Nashville, Tennessee, with decades of touring experience, will transport you back in time by authentically re-creating the music and live concert experience of three of the biggest rock ’n’ roll bands in history: Journey, Foreigner and Kansas.
