Media Nite Radio welcomes to the airwaves Kevin Chalfant. Music fans know Kevin best from his time as lead singer for the uber popular group, Journey for a limited run.
Chalfant's first national success came when he joined the group 707 in 1982. With Chalfant on lead vocals, the band enjoyed its biggest hit, "Mega Force", which peaked at #12 on Billboard 's Mainstream Rock chart but soon after they disbanded.
In 1984, Chalfant joined the band Steel Breeze. He recorded one album with the band, Heart on the Line, before leaving in 1985.
Chalfant later formed The Storm in 1990 with guitarist Josh Ramos and (former) Journey members Ross Valory (bass), Gregg Rolie (keys), and Steve Smith (drums). Journey, a multi-platinum band that was also no stranger to internal conflict, had undergone several personnel changes over the years. As Journey was splintering, The Storm was brewing.
Released by Interscope Records in late 1991, The Storm hit the album charts and the band's first single, "I’ve Got A Lot To Learn About Love" surged well into the Top 40 of the Hot 100. Faring even better at Mainstream Rock radio, the single peaked at #6 on the national Billboard charts, and its follow-up, "Show Me The Way" went to #22. That spring, the band went on a major US tour with Bryan Adams and opened for Peter Frampton. When the band was ready to release the second album, the label was emerged in the genre of rap. Therefore, when the album was finally released in 1996, the band was no longer viable.
In 1993, Journey came calling but by 1995, Steve Perry decided to return to the band leaving Chalfant out.
After some time off, Chalfant put out his first solo album and now is a member of The Voices of Rock.
Kevin will be at Wheeling Island Hotel, Casino and Racetrack in West Virginia. Get your tickets here:
