Jefferson Starship

Jefferson Starship, created by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner and David Freiberg (also a former Jefferson Airplane member and co-founder of the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service), celebrate their 40th Anniversary in 2014.

The band, descended from Jefferson Airplane - who performed at Monterey and Woodstock, at Altamont with the Rolling Stones, and shared the bill countless times with Grateful Dead & Janis Joplin, and whose music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism - is set to perform the landmark recordings "Dragonfly" and "Red Octopus" - the latter catapulted them to the top of the charts twice in 1975.

Jefferson Starship's Europe wide broadcast from the Lugano Jazz Festival in Switzerland this past June, along with their performance in Uzice, Serbia for the American Embassy, furthers the band's historic legacy as musical ambassadors. They just returned from Brazil, the 30th country they have visited.

Jefferson Starship is fronted by acclaimed singer Cathy Richardson, star of "Love, Janis" - long time drummer Donny Baldwin, keyboard/bassist Chris Smith and guitarist Jude Gold (formerly with JGB) round out the line-up. 2013 proved another remarkable year for the stalwart, iconic Jefferson Starship - whose diverse projects and performances include a symphony engagement, broadcast across the U.S. on HDNET and their heralded appearance on PBS, headlining "60's Rock, Pop & Soul," which continues to air coast to coast.

The band continues to perform their repertoire of hits spanning all eras of their existence, including "Jane," "Somebody To Love," "Miracles," "White Rabbit," "Volunteers," "Count On Me," "Find Your Way Back," "Wooden Ships," "Today," "Lather," "Crown of Creation" and many more.

w/ special guests The Windshield Vipers

The Windshield Vipers are the latest concept to pop out of McMenamins' music laboratories, an all-star supergroup playing classic hits and hidden gems.

The starting rotation of players comes from many bands and just as many genre of music, such as Quarterflash, Crazy 8s, Lily Wilde Big Band, Freak Mountain Ramblers, X-Angels, Rodney Crowell Band, The Gas Hogs... the list goes on. The debut shows at Ringlers Pub features Lex Browning (guitar, violin, sax, vocals), Danny Schauffler (keyboards, sax, vocals), Rich Gooch (bass, vocals), Jon Koonce (guitar, harp, vocals) and Tom Royer (drums,vocals).

The ability to switch instruments between players is matched by the ever changing styles of songs, from blues to rockin' country swingin' blue grass jazz punk polka. Pair that up with the many flavors of McMenamins taps and you got a good time that is a unique experience every show.
