On Sat. September 14, an amazing rock n’ roll experience took place with an incredible line up of music with Jefferson Starship headlining, Hollywood U2, Tramps Like Us and The Doug Wahlberg Band. Thanks to all who joined us for a night to remember for a great cause. Proceeds benefitted the National Adoption Foundation.
Our headliner band Jefferson Starship rose from the ashes of another legendary San Francisco band, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Jefferson Airplane.
Between 1974 and 1984, Jefferson Starship released eight gold and
platinum albums, twenty hit singles, sold out concerts worldwide and lived out
legendary rock and roll escapades.
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.
Featuring original and historic members David Freiberg (also a founder of San Francisco luminaries Quicksilver Messenger Service) 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 as Jefferson Airplane accepts their Lifetime Achievement Award at the GRAMMY Merit Awards Concert.)
Hollywood U2 is the World’s greatest U2 tribute band, even receiving recognition from Bono himself! They have performed on live TV multiple times and even on stage with Bono in an epic performance in L.A.
Tramps Like Us was formed in 1990 and since then has been distinguished as the ONLY tribute band to be endorsed by the “Springsteen Camp.” It has received high praise from dozens of publications and personnel in the music business and we are excited to have showcased their talent!
DWB opened for Jefferson Starship for the third time with their version of classic and original Rock and Roll.
“The Doug Wahlberg Band wears their 60’s/psychedelic influences proudly, while still sounding crisp, modern and vital.” -Tim Sheehan Program Director WRKI-I95
