Journey's former drummer part of 2013 Berks Jazz Fest

WYOMISSING, Pa. - A legendary drummer is part of Berks Jazz Fest.

Steve Smith, the former drummer of Journey, is playing Friday night. We caught up with Smith as he was preparing for his performance with his band, Vital Information NYC Edition.

Smith said Berks Jazz Fest may be small, but it's one of his favorite places to perform.

"Well, I've played, for instance, like JFK Stadium. It, I think, it holds about 90,000 people. And this a very different kind of situation, playing in a small jazz room where there's a lot of attention to detail, and I like that."

Smith is playing at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. at Gerald Veasley's Jazz Base in the Crowne Plaza in Wyomissing.
