Description: The iconic 1970s rock band Jefferson Starship grew out of the similarly iconic 1960s group Jefferson Airplane. Paul Kantner, along with Marty Balin, founded Jefferson Airplane in 1965. The band was the biggest rock group in America during the '60s and the first San Francisco band to sign a major record deal, paving the way for other legends like the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. The group headlined the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, and like The Beatles, to whom they are critically compared, they lasted a mere seven years - although their influence and impact on rock music continues well into the 21st century. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
