In June 2016, Departure was founded by a female vocalist who had previously left a local band to break out and create her own brand of live music. A rebirth of a music with a new sound, new musicians, new material, hence the Phoenix Wings in the Departure Logo. With a concentration in Classic Rock, Rock Anthem, Party/Dance Music with a little country thrown in, Departure has something for everyone who attends their shows. With a focus in presenting four part harmonies, killer dueling guitar solo’s and a rhythmic groove all their own, Departure’s goal is to provide a show that will either have you stopping to watch & listen, or join in on the dance floor as you sing along.
