JIMMY LEAHEY started guitar at the age 7 with guitar great and father Harry Leahey. His love of all things “guitar” has led him to a wide spectrum of styles. From 1981 to present, he’s played locally in NJ/NY clubs, bars, and theaters with a wide range of musical acts. You can catch him still playing with just about every band he’s ever played with! Jimmy has toured with national acts.12 years with John Waite, Glen Burtnik for a number of years. Currently, Jim is on tour with Styx singer pianist/songwriter Dennis DeYoung. His performances and reputation as a dependable sideman has landed him gigs with Patty Smyth (Scandal) , Martha Davis (The Motels), Chris Cagle (CMT), Anna Nalick (Sony Records, Breath 2a.m.), Dionne Farris (Arrested Development), Jill Rock Jones (Bad Boy South), Gloria Gaynor, Alison Krauss (Union Station.)
AUGUST ZADRA joined Dennis in 2010 on lead guitar and vocals. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that pulled August from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology. His roots are in classic rock and, while raising a family, he chose to focus his musical talents on paying tribute to some of his greatest inspirations. August has been a constant in the Los Angeles music scene for the past 20 years, playing with a variety of bands and is often sought out as a guitarist/singer collaborator for recording projects. His guitar playing was featured nationally on VH-1 in a “You Rock With” segment, and he has performed with members of Boston, The Gin Blossoms, and Poison. August is endorsed by Ernie Ball/Music Man guitars, Splawn Amplification, Line 6, and GHS Strings. When he isn’t living the dream on the road with Dennis DeYoung, August can be found performing with his Journey tribute band, LIGHTS, and spending time with his wife and daughters.
