TULSA, Okla. – Jefferson Starship’s five members describe themselves as both a family and a gang, and that comes across in talking to them and in their robust live performances, which have taken them to all 50 U.S. states., five continents and now back at the Hard Rock Live inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Thursday, Sep. 21, at 8 p.m.
Tickets start at $25.50 and go on sale May 26.
When founding member Paul Kantner formed Jefferson Starship in the ’70s, he envisioned the band as a cast of musical adventurers, contributing to his epic concept albums and eventual deep catalog of rock classics. Fifty years later, he couldn’t have imagined that the band would become the road-conquering heroes they’ve been in the last few years. Known for their top hits like “Winds of Change,” “Jane,” “Nothing’s Going To Stop Us Now,” “We Built This City,” “With Your Love,” “Sara” and “Count On Me” among others, Jefferson Starship has stood the test of time with timeless songs that have shaped a generation.
In addition to original member David Freiberg, the band includes drummer Donny Baldwin (whose Jefferson Starship roots go back to 1982), keyboardist Chris Smith (who joined in 1998), guitarist Jude Gold (who joined in 2012), and singer and guitarist Cathy Richardson (who joined in 2008, after Kantner saw her tour with Big Brother and the Holding Company). As Jefferson Starship approaches their 50th anniversary, the group’s members look to the future with the word Kanter used to say to them all the time: onward.
