Jefferson Starship, starring band founder Paul Kantner, headline the OneMain Financial Main Stage!
July 3 @ 8 pm, Point State Park
PAUL KANTNER founded JEFFERSON AIRPLANE in 1965. THE AIRPLANE were the biggest rock group in America during the 1960s and headlined the original WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL in 1969. And like THE BEATLES with whom they are critically compared, they 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 enjoyed chart-topping success. PAUL and JEFFERSON AIRPLANE were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, the same year as PINK FLOYD. JEFFERSON STARSHIP, the name created by PAUL for his 1971 solo debut “Blows Against The Empire” recording, has endured 40 years as one of rock’s most legendary bands.

All you need to know about the stunning talent of Rick Larrimore is summed up in this quote from Tim Collins, music industry consultant and former personal manager for Aerosmith: “Rick is so close to the real deal that it scared me! I thought Rod was right there in front of me. I almost couldn’t tell the difference. An incredible night of entertainment that rocked my soul. I have seen many bands that pay tribute to major artists like Rod, but Rick’s ability to capture the little nuances of Rod Stewart was utterly amazing.”
