Many pop rock bands have played throughout Canada at many of Canadian casino entertainment spots. When a band like the Starship comes to town, you know the place is going to rock.
The Starship rock band was founded in 1984. It was a kind of incarnation of Jefferson Starship -- originally the Jefferson Airplane -- and that set its musical direction. Subsequently, it ultimately became an independent entity from the original band altogether. It is kind of interesting that some of the original members of the 1960s star psychedelic rock band were consistent in the identification process in the naming their new group.
The new band arose in 1974 called the Jefferson Starship, though, in reality, the name is a bit confusing. It implies that they were seeking a particular sound and a type of music that was a cosmic force more than ever before. The opposite happened as they conversely toned down the unconventionality that had come to describe them from the 1960s.
With much commercial success during the seventies, and with a couple of platinum-selling records, things quickly changed due to singer Grace Slick’s personal life. The pop band, Starship was fashioned from the band’s ashes in the early eighties. With a rotating lineup of some former members, they carry on tour with those seventies classics to this very day.
Starship has overhauled the band and show with an extended list that incorporates some of the most famous hits of the Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and Starship! With the addition of the lovely and impressive female vocalist, Stephanie Calvert; the Starship presents a compelling show with all the hit songs and classics!
Mickey Thomas 's towering voice propelled the Starship during the ’80’s and ‘90’s. With his moving and captivating vocals, Mickey proved himself as one of Rock Music’s most distinct personalities. It was in 1979 when Mickey Thomas became lead vocalist of the Jefferson Starship. Also at this time, Grace Slick and Marty Balin quit the original band.
After Mickey had recorded the well-known recording “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” with the Elvin Bishop Band, he was sincerely considering pursuing a solo career. His decision to stay with the Jefferson Starship was a wise one as immediately after uniting they recorded their first hit, “Jane”. Every album that the Starship has released has either gone Gold, Platinum or Multi-Platinum.
