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, have announced special performances to celebrate August's 50th Anniversary of Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead & The San Francisco Sound. Jefferson Starship 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. Grammy nominated singer Cathy Richardson, who portrayed Janis Joplin in the heralded "Love, Janis", fronts Jefferson Starship.

Joining Jefferson Starship on the 50th Anniversary run (Aug. 13-16) will be the acclaimed ensemble Jazz Is Dead, reforming after a 10-year hiatus for these shows. Jazz Is Dead are credited for beckoning the start of the `jam band' phenomenon in 1998. Alphonso Johnson, bassist for Furthur, Bobby & The Midnights & Weather Report; and, Jeff Pevar, guitarist for Phil Lesh, Crosby-Nash and this year Bette Midler - lead the group famous for instrumental interpretations of Grateful Dead's repertoire. Rock Hall of Fame inductee, original Grateful Dead pianist, Tom Constanten & others will join them.

Additionally, David Freiberg has assembled `Quicksilver Happy Trails' - completing the most famous of Bay Area musical triumvirates (Airplane, Dead, Quicksilver). The festival atmosphere shall be hosted and the music mixed by legendary Grateful Dead sound engineer Dan Healy.
