ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (May 17, 2017) – On Saturday, September 9, legendary rock band Jefferson Starship will take the stage at Tropicana Atlantic City for a 8 p.m. performance in the Tropicana Showroom. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Jefferson Starship rose from the ashes of another legendary San Francisco band and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Jefferson Airplane. Late founder Paul Kantner, knew that combining powerful creative forces, personalities and talents could create something far greater than the sum of its parts. Today’s Jefferson Starship remains dedicated to breathing new life into the living catalog of the Jeffersonian legacy, going to the edge, pushing the sonic boundaries and staying true to the original spirit of the music.
Between 1974 and 1984, Jefferson Starship released eight gold and platinum selling albums,twenty hit singles, and performed sold out concerts worldwide. Throughout 2014 and 2015, the band played a series of free concerts for America’s Veterans and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the US Department of Defense. Jefferson Starship has also made recent television appearances on My Music: 60s Pop, Rock and Soul on PBS and live with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra on AXS Network.
Jefferson Starship features original and historic 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. Their music that defined a generation and spanned decades is alive and well and more relevant than ever in pop culture- songs such as Volunteers, White Rabbit, Wooden Ships, Somebody to Love, Today, Miracles, Count on Me, Fast Buck Freddie, Jane and Find Your Way Back continue to reverberate throughout the collective consciousness today.
Tickets to see Jefferson Starship at Tropicana Atlantic City are $25, $35, and $45. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or via phone at 1.800.745.3000, or at the Tropicana Box Office.
