Steve Smith, the drummer and founder of the group started with Journey and hasn't stopped since. Smith has won Modern Drummer Magazine's #1 All Around Drummer award five years in a row and was voted one of the Top 25 Drummers of All Time in a recent Modern Drummer readers poll. Smith was also voted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2002.

Vital Information will perform two sets this evening, one at 8 p.m. and again at 10.
