Jefferson Starship brought their 40th Light Year Anniversary to a rocking Hudson Gardens and Event Center Sunday night July 13, 2014.
Jefferson Starship started the night with the song “Find Your Way Back” and this brought the crowd from their seats and the night of rock and roll along with dancing began. The group then went into the song “Miracles” and the song proved that many believe still.
The band formed in the early ‘70s under the name Jefferson Airplane. But the band took a turn like most bands do and changed members and music styles. The name Jefferson Starship came about and Paul Kanter and David Freiberg prove that Starship can still perform. Gone are the days of Grace Slick and Papa John Creach and Starship welcomes new members Donny Baldwin – drums, Chris Smith – keyboards and Cathy Richardson – vocals, guitar.
The Hudson Gardens and Event Center had created a night of rock to remember. Jefferson Starship has sold millions of albums, have been listed on top billboards in Classic Rock, Pop and Soft Rock charts. They have been voted by their fans as one of the top groups to see in concert and they proved that again tonight. The voices have not been lost over the years. The melodies are still the same if not better. The music has been revamped with the voice of Cathy Richardson. Jefferson Starship provided a night that will be spoken about for a long time to come.
