Jefferson Starship'Galactic Reunion,2/15
Live Nation presents one of the most successful classic rock bands of the 1970's, Jefferson Starship, at the North Fork Theatre at Westbury on Thursday, February 15 at 8 p.m. Starring Paul Kantner and Marty Balin, Jefferson Starship will be performing some their greatest hits from the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship catalogue. These timeless songs include "Somebody to Love," "Count on Me," "Caroline," and "White Rabbit."
Once recognized as the greatest psychedelic band in history, Jefferson Starship, with its "San Francisco sound," changed the course of pop music forever. With Jefferson Airplane, Balin & Kantner helped create some of the era's most memorable songs including "Crown of Creation," "Have You Seen the Saucers," "House at Pooneil Corners," "Plastic Fantastic Lover," and "Volunteers." Upon changing their name to Jefferson Starship in the mid seventies, the band scored with six Top 20 albums including their number one LP, Red Octopus featuring their biggest hit, "Miracles," and "Play on Love."
The band's cheerful and energetic musical style bends the elements of folk, jazz and rock, while capturing the spirits of love and freedom. The group has made memorable appearances at the Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Altamont music festivals and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. In 2005, after celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jefferson Airplane, the group became America's longest enduring rock institution.
Since reforming in 1992, Jefferson Starship has played over 900 concerts in 21 countries, and returns their incredible talents to Westbury. This up close and personal performance will feature band members from Quicksilver Messenger Service (David Freiberg and Gary Duncan), The Tubes (Prairie Prince), and Slick Aguilar on Guitars.
