      Cathy Richardson carries this band with exceptional vocals and Jude Gold is...breathtaking. It's great to see David Frieberg still rocking. He is my real hero. Chris on keyboards is a great talent, Donny on drums keeps it all steady and is a real pro. Paul Kantner, the legend, was in good voice, and we're grateful he still has the desire and energy to bring us a truly enjoyable trip down memory lane and exceptionally talented band.

      Great show. Streaming was very good. Looking forward to more Tupelo AND JS shows.

      Very disappointed in the performance. Paul was there in body but not in spirit, David Freiberg was strong -- he's got lungs, he can still sing well. He needs to join a better band. Cathy Richardson was obnoxious, bombastic, no nuance, no sense of lyricism whatever. The stage setting was miserable. I've seen better lit and decorated high school cover bands. That played JA and JS a lot better than these croaking turkeys. I've seen them be SO much better on YouTube. These geezers need to hang it up. And I say that as a HUGE Jefferson Airplane fan since 1967, That rip aside -- I love your medium, and would gladly watch another show on Concert Window. Some 60s-70s musicians, of course. You have a very nice viewing medium -- but -- JS just phoned in that performance. Ain't gonna pay $20 up front again . . . pay less, tip if I want to, and I would for a band that could still play. Your format would work well with even arena performances, though I think you'll be best in a small stage in the round, carpets, unplugged style. For classic, established and emerging artists alike, they can tweak their shows a bit to your format and you'll have a formidable product. But I picked JS -- which is the only band I recognize on your performance list -- and I learned my lesson. I wish they would learn theirs and hang it up, rather than continue to blemish their name and their history. That was ONCE the top live performance band in the US, in the late 60s and early 70s. There's nothing left but the dregs.

PAUL KANTNER, along with MARTY BALIN founded JEFFERSON AIRPLANE in 1965. THE AIRPLANE were the biggest rock group in America during the 1960s and the first San Francisco band to sign a major record deal, paving the way for other legends like GRATEFUL DEAD & JANIS JOPLIN. They headlined the original WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL in 1969 and like THE BEATLES with whom they are critically compared, lasted a mere 7 years ... though their influence and impact on rock music continues well into the 21st century.

In 1974 Mr. KANTNER created JEFFERSON STARSHIP and again with Mr. BALIN, enjoyed chart-topping success. PAUL, MARTY & JEFFERSON AIRPLANE were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, the same year as PINK FLOYD. In 2005 they celebrated their 40th anniversary, playing 21 countries on their world tour. In 2007 they headlined “The Summer of Love 40th Anniversary Celebration” and performed at The Monterey Pop commemorative on the exact same stage as the historic landmark rock festival of 1967.

JEFFERSON STARSHIP, the name created by PAUL for his 1971 solo debut “Blows Against The Empire” recording has endured 37 years as rock music’s premier “political science fiction” themed band. That recording was the first and only to ever be nominated for literary science fiction’s Hugo Award … a stellar achievement.
