The Jefferson Starship landed at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez, CA. on August 1, and brought with them a psychedelic vibe to the Somala Showroom from the start. The band kicked off the show by performing the Jefferson Airplane classic album ‘Surrealistic Pillow’ in its entirety, followed by a set that combined the best of Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Paul Kantner was joined by accomplished bandmates Donny Baldwin (drums), Chris Smith (keyboard), David Freiberg (vocals/guitar), Jude Gold (guitar), and powerhouse vocalist Cathy Richardson for a set that took many of the audience back to the feeling of their 60’s era youth. Check out photos from the show on the Marshall of Rock Facebook page here, and watch video from the show below.
Jude Gold filled in more than admirably for original Jefferson Starship guitarist Mark “Slick” Aguilar, who we wish all the best to as he recovers from a liver transplant.
