Jefferson Starship, founded by Rock Hall of Fame inductee Paul Kantner (who also founded Jefferson Airplane) and David Friedberg (who also founded Quicksilver Messenger Service), soar into their 40th year, carrying one of rock music's greatest legacies and halcyon repertoires. The group’s music is the soundtrack of a generation including the smash hits “Somebody to Love,” “White Rabbit," and “We Built This City.” Recent television specials on PBS and HDNet have only furthered the legendary band's following. As genuine American good will ambassadors, they have appeared in 30 countries on 4 continents, including Brazil, Japan, Israel, and Serbia at the invitation of the American Embassy.
Jefferson Starship, created by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner; and, David Freiberg, also a former Jefferson Airplane member and co-founder of the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service – celebrate their 40th Anniversary in 2014. The band, descended from Jefferson Airplane – who performed at Monterey and Woodstock, at Altamont with the Rolling Stones, and shared the bill countless times with Grateful Dead & Janis Joplin, and whose music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism – is set to perform the landmark recordings “Dragonfly” and “Red Octopus” – the latter catapulted them to the top of the charts twice in 1975. Jefferson Starship’s Europe wide broadcast from the Lugano Jazz Festival in Switzerland this past June, along with their performance in Uzice, Serbia for the American Embassy, furthers the band’s historic legacy as musical ambassadors. They just returned from Brazil, the 30th country they have visited. Jefferson Starship is fronted by acclaimed singer Cathy Richardson, star of the play “Love, Janis” – long time members Donny Baldwin (drums) & Chris Smith (keyboard/bass) and guitarist Jude Gold (formerly with JGB) round out the line-up. 2013 proved another remarkable year for the stalwart, iconic band – whose diverse projects and performances include a symphony engagement, broadcast across the U.S. on HDNET and their heralded appearance on PBS, headlining “60’s Rock, Pop & Soul,” which still airs coast to coast. Jefferson Starship continues to perform their repertoire of hits spanning all eras of their existence, including “Jane,” “Somebody To Love,” “Miracles,” “White Rabbit,” “Volunteers,” “Count On Me,” “Find Your Way Back,” “Wooden Ships,” “Today,” “Lather,” “Crown of Creation” and many more. • Tickets go on sale to the General Public on Fri, 8/15 at 10 AM. • Doors at 7, show at 8.
