STARSHIP featuring Mickey Thomas

October 25 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Mickey Thomas is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled STARSHIP through the decades of the 80’s and 90’s. With his soulful and compelling vocals, MICKEY has established himself as one of Rock Music’s most recognizable stars.

Mickey made his mark in 1976 as lead vocalist on the mega-hit “FOOLED AROUND AND FELL IN LOVE” with The ELVIN BISHOP Band. In 1979, Mickey’s joined the JEFFERSON STARSHIP as lead vocalist, after the departure of Grace Slick and Marty Balin.

Backed by the power of MICKEY’S vocals, JEFFERSON STARSHIP immediately scored a #1 hit with “JANE”. With this new sound and powerful new vocals, the group was renamed STARSHIP and continued to record an amazing string of hits including “NO WAY OUT”, “WE BUILT THIS CITY”, “SARA”, and an Oscar Nomination for the #1 hit “NOTHINGS GONNA STOP US NOW” from the movie “Mannequin”. Other top hits included “FIND YOUR WAY BACK”, “STRANGER”, “LAYING IT ON THE LINE”, and “IT’S NOT OVER TILL IT’S OVER” which became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987.

Moreover, every STARSHIP album released since 1979 has gone Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum. MICKEY’S stellar voice and video charisma on STARSHIP’s video classics such as “WE BUILT THIS CITY” and “SARA” have become staples on MTV and VH1. Material covered in STARSHIP’s live performance ranges from MICKEY’S tenure with THE ELVIN BISHOP Band and STARSHIP, as well as songs from his two solo albums.

Mickey will be backed by the band STARSHIP featuring: JEFF ADAMS – BASS • JOHN ROTH – GUITAR • PHIL BENNETT – KEYBOARDS • DARRELL VERDUSCO – DRUMS & STEPHANIE CALVERT – VOCALS.

Special Guest Carl Dixon kicks the night off!
