Departure ATX was formed in 2015 in Austin, Texas by Jesse Monaghan and Joel Godson. The two then went and found Scott Olsen and Mark Ramsey. From there the band auditioned lead singers through trial and error until Mark mentioned a guy by the name of Ryan Holly. Holley Joined the group in late 2015 and took over the lead vocal roles ever since. The Band has since now been playing around the state of Texas on a number of entertainment bills. The is first and foremost about the music. If you don't have a correct respect for the bands you are covering then your cover band career will be short lived. So with that in mind the band rehearses practically non stop when not performing to ensure that they are at the top of their game when they hit the stage.
In May of 2016 the bands production manager introduced the new touring lighting production that has now been seen all over the state. The band prides themselves on bang for the buck so no expense is spared for production. Monaghan and Godson understand the importance of keeping fans so they are constantly working on making the show the best it can be.
For 2019 the band is really turning it up a notch or two. With new tunes and all new production Departure is ready to reach new heights this year!
See you on the road!
