Big Brother & The Holding Co. | FREE | Levitt AMP Carson City Music Series | Saturday | August 3rd 2024

August 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Big Brother & The Holding Company are considered, along with the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane, the pioneers of the San Francisco Sound. They are recognized in the history of rock and roll as the band that launched the career of the great Janis Joplin. They are the band that recorded “Cheap Thrills”, which many consider to be the definitive record of Janis’s greatest singing.  Rolling Stone Magazine listed “Cheap Thrills” as one of the greatest albums of all time, and Big Brother’s version of “Piece of My Heart” has been included in the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Library of Congress. Original members Peter Albin (bass) and Dave Getz (drums) have been playing together for 59 years and continue to bring this legendary music that they created with Janis to audiences all over the world. Darby Gould of Jefferson Starship will front the band with her soaring vocals.
