50 Years of Rock
Saturday, October 19 at 8 p.m.
Jefferson Starship rose from the ashes of another legendary San Francisco band, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Jefferson Airplane. Featuring original and historical members David Freiberg 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 at Jefferson Airplane’s Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance ceremony).
The music that defined a generation and spanned decades is alive and well and more relevant than ever in pop-culture as hits such as"Somebody to Love","White Rabbit","Miracles", "Jane","We Built This City","Ride the Tiger","Count on Me","Volunteers","Wooden Ships", continue to reverberate throughout our collective consciousness today.
