DEARBORN – You won’t have to “stop believing” as “Frontiers — The Journey Tribute,” takes center stage at this year’s 32nd Homecoming festival Friday through Sunday.

The band will rock out on the Main Stage at Ford Field Park on at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

Touring all across the United States and performing at venues such as The House of Blues, the group is known as “THE national full-time touring tribute to Journey.”

Featuring vocalist Jeremey Hunsicker, the group caught the attention of Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain and founding member and guitarist Neal Schon.

The band, which became a full-time endeavor in 2008, also features guitarist Stephen Chesney, bass player Greg Eanes, and drummer Chris Castelda. Touring keyboard players Chad Campbell and Billy Jones round out the performances during alternating shows.

Sunday night will feature another performance by a nationally acclaimed cover band, “Hotel California — A Salute to the Eagles,” who will take the Main Stage at 8:30 p.m.

The quintet features members Dicky, Scott, Wade, Steve, and Kenny, who share vocals and musical skills. The members have opened separately for groups such as Boston, The Little River Band and Van Halen.
