I have to agree with Mayor Johnson, the time has come for Sacramento to become the "Jewel" of our State. "When not if you build it, They will come!" Tourists, Jobs and money!
Tickets: $79, $89 and $99 (plus taxes & fees)
Greg Townson is on guitar with the Los Straitjackets for Danny recovering from an illness. Also I spelled Gayle instead of "Gale" for Carol. Thank you, Mary Gale. For bringing this to my attention. Not only do I have trouble keeping these two fabulous woman and twin sister's apart-but I can't keep the right spelling of their name either. LOL
TY, Jan Ha, Ha I too thought that when he introduced him as his grandson, then he said Great Grandson. I should have verified that, before I left. Anyone who loves music and blues as much as they both do are "Family" I also missed on the date which I should have flash forward 42 years. The decades are flying by faster then I can count.
I also wanted to add a note about Stafanie Keys who is an excellent singer in her own right and did a fabulous job belting out many of Big Brother's Classic Hits. Even before Janis passed and since, BBHC has gone thru a variety of lead singers all of which have contributed their own personality and style.
It is also my opinion, and I agree with the comment above that Big Brother deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Janis Joplin. I left this out of the review because I do not want the band to be perceived as bitter or that they do not even like or never liked Joplin. The relationship is complicated and true fans of both Joplin and Big Brother are aware of the history.
Sorry for the miss on Jimmy's age-I I too heard 14 but wrote 15-What I remember was the excitement from both the crowd as well as the pure joy those two kids were having performing with such a legendary group!
