Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus Teams With Former Journey, Chicago Bandmembers For New Group

Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts is joining forces with Deen Castronovo of Journey, Jason Scheff of Chicago, and Chris Rodriguez and Tom Yankton to form a new supergroup The Rise Above.

The group is playing a show in Nashville on Oct. 28 at Marathon Music Works to benefit The ACM Lifting Lives COVID Relief Fund.

The band formed in the beginning of 2020 with the intent of bringing ’80s rock and classic music back to life, and has spent the past nine months in the studio working on their debut album, set to release in 2021. The band’s set list reads like your favorite guilty pleasure night with hits including “Any Way You Want It,” “Separate Ways” and “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, “Stay The Night” and “Will You Still Love Me” by Chicago, and “These Days” And “Life Is A Highway” from Rascal Flatts.

Tickets for the limited capacity, socially-distanced Marathon Music Works show can be purchased here.
