JEFFERSON STARSHIP

Description

DOORS: 6:00PM    SHOW: 7:30    AGES: 13+

Jefferson Starship rose from the ashes of another legendary San Francisco band, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Jefferson Airplane. 

Founder Paul Kantner (who died in January 2016 at age 74) knew that combining powerful creative forces, personalities and talents could create something far greater than the sum of its  parts. 

Between 1974 and 1984, Jefferson Starship released eight gold and platinum albums, twenty hit   singles, sold out concerts worldwide and lived out legendary rock and roll escapades. 

"Jefferson Starship was my creation...and it has this nice fluidity about it that allows any number of people to come in and do things with whatever Jefferson Starship is." - Paul Kantner 

Today's Jefferson Starship remains dedicated to breathing new life into the living catalog of the Jeffersonian legacy, going to the edge, pushing the sonic boundaries and staying true to the   original spirit of the music.

Featuring original and historic members David Freiberg (also a founder of San Francisco luminaries Quicksilver Messenger Service) and drummer Donny Baldwin, along with longtime   members Chris Smith on keyboards and synth bass, Jude Gold on lead guitar and GRAMMY Nominee Cathy Richardson anchoring the female lead vocal spot made famous by the inimitable Grace Slick (who invited her to sing in her place as Jefferson Airplane accepts their Lifetime Achievement Award at the GRAMMY Merit Awards Concert.) 

The band keeps a hectic touring schedule bolstered by several television recent appearances including My Music: 60s Pop, Rock and Soul on PBS and live with the Contemporary Youth   Orchestra on AXS Network. The Freiberg-penned 1979 hit Jane is the theme song for the Netflix Original Series Wet, Hot American Summer. In 2014-15, the band played a series of  free concerts for America's Veterans and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the US Department of Defense. Jefferson Starship has traveled the world playing in 20 countries across the globe in the last 3 years alone. 

The music that defined a generation and spanned decades is alive and well and more relevant than ever in pop culture - songs such as Volunteers, White Rabbit, Wooden Ships, Somebody to Love, Today, Miracles, Count on Me, Fast Buck Freddie, Jane and Find Your Way Back continue to reverberate throughout the collective consciousness today.







Special guest KALI STODDARD-IMARI opens the show
Kali stole the show when he opened for Taj Mahal at The Flying Monkey with his inspired songwriting and soulful performance. He grew up in Lyndon Vermont playing around with poetry, hip hop and chorus until he picked up the guitar at 17. Although he was always routed in music, the guitar lead him through the music of the world, and gave him a better understanding. His passion grew as he fused his musical past with Americana, Island, and Folk, stripping him of a particular genre and transforming him into a singer songwriter.  "Music is love, Music is medicine, Music creates passion and passion creates music, and that gives me fulness. So much so that I hear in melody, move in rhythm, and think in rhyme. I have made it my never ending goal to move the body and minds of others by sharing my passion and love through music".
