August 9 BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY
Evolving out of the San Francisco rock scene of the mid-1960s, Big Brother was in the forefront of the psychedelic music movement. Originally called the Blue Yard Hill, with various members floating in and out, Big Brother became a reality in September of that year. They played their first official gig in January 1966 at the Open Theater in Berkeley. Within a short time they became the house band for Chet Helms at the Avalon Ballroom and began to develop a loyal following of fans. Highlights of their early performances included “Coo Coo”, “That’s How Strong My Love Is”and “Hall Of The Mountain King” usually relying on Peter Albin for lead vocals. Later, Peter would also sing the lead on the early versions of “Down On Me”, and “Summertime”.
Janis Joplin debuted with Big Brother on June 10, 1966, at the Avalon Ballroom. The majority of Big Brother fans approved of the addition, and Janis became an instant hit.
The current edition of Big Brother & The Holding Company is one you don’t want to miss. The hits are as alive today as they were back in the 60’s.
August 10/11 PAULA POUNDSTONE
Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone, and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula Poundstone is famous for her razor-sharp wit and spontaneity. The Boston Globe said, “Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net”. Paula is so quick and unassuming that audience members at her live shows often leave complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and debating whether the random people she talked to were “plants.”

February 1 COMMANDER CODY
Artist, musician, and pioneering band leader Commander Cody helped invent a whole new style of music during the early 70’s, a period regarded as the height of rock innovation. Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen were one of the original groups to fuse divergent strains of American Roots Music-stripped down basic rock and roll, rhythm and blues, jazz, bop, country, western swing, and rockabilly-and create an innovative, yet familiar and convincing sound.
