Jefferson Starship, created by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner and David Frieberg, also a frmer Jefferson Airplane member will celebrate its 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 the Greatful Dead and Janis Joplin, and whose music helped definte a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism — will perform from its landmark recordings "Dragonfly" and "Red Octopus." Jefferson Starship is fronted by acclaimed singer Cathy Richardson, star of the play "Love, Janis", long time members Donny Baldwin (drums) and Chris Smith (keyboard/bass) and guitarist Jude Gold round out the linup. 2013 proved another remarkable year for the stalwart, iconic band — whose diverse projects and performances include a symphony engagement, boradcast across the U.S. on HDNET and their heralded appearance on PBS, headlining "60s 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," and many more.
