FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 – Event time is 5pm to 11pm
Ontario Town Square – Live Music begins at 5pm
- Kanan Road Band
- Missus Jones
- Jefferson Starship (Headliner) – 9 PM
When founding member Paul Kantner formed Jefferson Starship in the ’70s, he envisioned the band as a cast of musical adventurers, contributing to his epic concept albums and eventual deep catalog of rock classics. When the current lineup of the band came together alongside Kantner as a unit in 2012, with many members joining years before, he couldn’t have imagined that the band would become the road-conquering heroes they’ve been in the last few years.
Jefferson Starship’s five members describe themselves as both a “family” and a “gang,” and that comes across in talking to them, and in their robust live performances, which have taken them to all 50 U.S. states., five continents, and too many countries to list here (a recent tour of New Zealand was mentioned among the band’s favorites), drawing from a massive setlist of hit after hit. https://www.jeffersonstarship.com/index.html
