Rock and roll Renaissance man. That best describes this Music Legend. Leon Russell’s long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who’s who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis to Phil Spector to the Rolling Stones. A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaced in his solo work, which couched his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel.

Between his solo work, contributions to high-profile albums by other artists, and screen exposure in the Bangla Desh and Mad Dogs & Englishmen documentaries, Russell became a veritable superstar in the Seventies. Russell has won two Grammy awards, chart-topping hits and was inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Don’t miss this Intimate Show with a Music Legend.

Beverly, MA.  M.E. Productions is excited to present psychedelic rock icons Jefferson Starship at the Larcom Theatre on Saturday, March 21st at 8pm .  Rising from the ashes of Jefferson Airplane, their music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism. This special show celebrates all the music of Jefferson Airplane on it’s 50TH anniversaryTickets for Jefferson Starship start at $35.

Beginning in 1974 as a break-off of Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship is arguably one of the most well-known bands to come out of that decade. Their first album Blows Against the Empire was the first ever rock music recording nominated for literary science fiction’s prestigious Hugo Award. Their music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism.

Currently the band is fronted by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner, David Freiberg, also a former Jefferson Airplane member and co-founder of the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service, and newest member Cathy Richardson, anchoring (and some say channeling) the historic role made famous by Grace Slick. They continue to perform their iconic repertoire of hits spanning all eras of their existence, including “Jane,” “Somebody To Love,” “Miracles,” “White Rabbit,” “Volunteers,” “Count On Me” and many more.

“This is one of the most exciting classic rock shows touring today,” says Seth McNally of M.E. Productions.  “The members haven’t lost a step, if anything they are playing with more energy than ever since the addition of the show stopping Cathy Richardson…and this show is especially exciting as they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jefferson Airplane.”

 

Tickets to see Jefferson Starship are $35, $45, and $55 for premier seating.  For tickets and more information visit www.larcomtheater.com or call  978-525-9093.
